STENTOFON IP security intercom and PA system implemented at Sino Iron project
An IP security intercom and public address system from STENTOFON Communications Australia PTY LTD was installed at the Sino Iron project to manage security issues at the mine site.
The Sino Iron project is currently being developed at Cape Preston, 100 kilometres south west of Karratha in Western Australia's Pilbara region.
CPM required a robust and effective security communication solution to manage the health and safety of the site's 5000 employees and contractors in the construction phase.
A key objective was to implement a security solution that could overcome the exhaustive costs associated with developing additional infrastructure and extensive cabling requirements.
The STENTOFON IP security intercom and public address system was chosen for its high audio quality and background noise cancellation abilities, which were essential requirements in the mine site’s noisy environment.
Key benefits of the STENTOFON IP security intercom and public address system:
- IP and PoE functionality allows long distances to be covered without extensive cabling
- Messages can be announced to all internal and external work areas via the IP horn speakers
- Calls can be made and received by the IP vandal and weather resistant substations located throughout the mine site
- Controlled by a redundant AlphaCom XE 1 system providing 99.999% availability
- Accessible and easy to update system using the dual display or desktop master stations as well as the PC based soft client
- Suitable for outdoor use with ability to withstand weather conditions equivalent to IP65
- Interfaces seamlessly with the Siemens SiPass access control system to allow workers to carry out daily tasks and communicate with ease
- Reduces installation time and expense by utilising existing network cabling and eliminating the need for an additional power supply
