Innovation in Mine Safety
RSL Fiber Systems is committed to providing innovative lighting solutions and safe, durable illumination systems that break the mold and offer outstanding performance and reliability in the most hazardous and demanding environments. No environment experiences these tough, special demands more than coal mines.
RSL’s safe, non-electrical fiber optic lighting technology is ideal for incorporation into mining equipment to ensure unprecedented illumination and visibility, thereby maximizing safety and minimizing the risk of shock hazard, electrocution or explosion.
RSL’s Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA)-approved Mine Equipment Visibility Outlining product is gaining more and more interest throughout the industry, and offers coal mine equipment manufacturers and coal mine operators a groundbreaking technology that is revolutionizing the way mine equipment and the environments in which they operate are illuminated. The system incorporates advanced fiber optic lighting technology designed to make heavy, moving coal mine equipment such as scoops, continuous miners, shuttle cars, roof bolters and more safer and easier to observe in both permissible (hazardous) and non-permissible environments.
With no electrical cables, equipment design is simplified, thereby reducing repair times and the technical training needed to accomplish them. Coal mine operators and workers enjoy increased safety, reduced man/machine accidents, increased productivity and reduced downtimes.
The system is now available through RSL’s sales office. For inquiries, please Email email@example.com.
Applications are virtually limitless for this new technology, and RSL is in various stages of development of a wide variety of additional mine safety-oriented lighting products – including fiber optic headlighting, longwall lighting, and illumination systems for roof bolters as well as a temperature monitoring system and methane sensing system.
