Why Choose Newtrax ?
Newtrax Technologies Inc., based in Montreal, Canada, is a leading provider of safety, productivity and analytics solutions to the global underground hard rock mining industry. We enable underground hard rock mines to measure KPIs they were not able to measure before, in real-time, to enable short-interval control of operations during the shift. This includes real-time KPIs for drills, with coverage all the way to the face, and a full-suite of KPIs without operator input using passive data collection.
Newtrax’s solutions are based on the company’s flagship products, the MineHop™ battery-powered wireless multihop network and MineProx™ adhoc peer-to-peer network.
