With a wealth of experience and expertise, IWT provides integrated wireless mine solutions designed to improve safety, efficiency and productivity, and the IWT system offers the lowest total cost of ownership over a mine’s lifetime when compared to legacy and competitor systems.  With integrated components and forward compatibility, IWT systems include customizable options to provide mines with features they need now and provide the ability to grow in the future. 

One revolutionary solution developed by IWT is the SENTINEL™ Uniti Node.  Approved by MSHA for voice communications and tracking in hazardous areas, the device is multi-functional and also includes IWT’s HDR technology and Wi-Fi access point - all in one robust package.

“The ability to offer the SENTINEL™ Uniti System to areas within the mine that require intrinsic safety approval is huge,” said IWT CEO, Eric Hanson. “To be able to get data directly from equipment in the working section without the need for fiber or other cabling vastly improves efficiency. This allows working sections to be all wireless, thus speeding up operations and move times.”
