Custom Solutions for the Mining Industry

Optical Fibre Systems relishes working with leading industry sectors to deliver optical fibre communication solutions which are cutting-edge. We continue to work with the Resource Industry sector as our custom manufacturing service ensures we continue to meet their evolving requirements.

Our working relationship with the mining sector has developed over many years as we supply state-of-the-art industrial optical fibre cables which include Military Tactical Field cables supplied by our reputable partner Optical Cable Corporation. These types of cables are ideal for the coal mining industry as they are robust and deployable for use in underground mining environments. For specific projects we are also able to supply these optical fibre cables with a choice of connector while the terminations are sealed in a dust-proof shroud which enables the assemblies to be joined end to end without contamination, even in harsh environments.

Custom designed fibre optic cables are sought by the resource industry and we have delivered with specialist leads protected by FRAS (Fire Resistant Anti-Static) cable protection hose for use on travelling conveyor systems in mining equipment. Our range of customised stainless steel and powder-coated weather resistant termination enclosures are also ideal for mining applications.
