Has anyone installed a main stream PLC and HMI in a mine.
Which make and models were used.
Were they IS or inside a Ex enclosure.

I've installed (many years ago) Modicon and Allen Bradley when it was not Rockwell, in coal mines... but this was either pit top or in surface buildings.

If you mean down the mines, it would have to be explosion proof (Exd) simply for the harsh environment.
At the time Transmitton were involved in communication systems but see they have moved on to tunneling and similar areas.

Thanks for the feedback.
It will be down the mine and would therefore be subject to mining regs (either I.S or Exd)
