NPP Sensing Technologies LLC

NPP Sensing Technologies LLC produces equipment under SIGMA trademark for universal communication system for mines, open-pit mines, and other hazardous production facilities. It incorporates all necessary equipment and software to implement the functions of mobile facility locating/zoning, mobile facility voice communication, mobile air and gas monitoring, mobile and stationary facilities telemetry, personnel access and location control at the facilities, time tracking, personnel activity and physical condition monitoring, video communication and other services.
The system is built upon the modern principles and new hardware components, giving it the edge over the competitors. Our main advantages: low power consumption (at least 2–3 times lower that the competitors’), small size and weight (easy to install), topology flexibility (linear, circular, tree-type in any combination), the network is easy to deploy and easy to migrate and reconfigure, digital data and voice transmission format (no interference, easy to add new services), any cable types are admitted (including the already laid ones), up-to-date process monitoring and visualization software, etc. These advantages allow us to decrease capital and operating expenses while increasing provision of the mines and open-pit mines with up-to-date communications.
SIGMA system has all necessary certificates of the Customs Union for RN (standard mining version), RO (enhanced explosion-proof version), and RV (explosion-proof version) systems, which permit their use at the facilities of any hazard, complexity, and operation level. All equipment is produced in the Russian Federation. NPP Sensing Technologies LLC possesses necessary experience in developing design options, installation and commissioning of such systems.
