In today’s mining industry, technology is as crucial as oversized earth moving equipment and hard hats. Whether on the surface, or deep underground, communications and environment sensing are keys to safety. NLT & Katapult’s industrial design team have re-imagined what modern mining communications can be.
Katapult’s considered industrial design and engineering has resulted in an iconic, rugged style specifically targeted to highlight NLT in a competitive global market. Angular, facetted features, bold colouring and chunky details have been deliberately chosen to reflect both the market and product use.
Functional details such as the front facing ‘jaw’ feature, create a protected cable connector zone beneath the units. The end cap handle feature also doubles as a cable management zone when the units are installed. Clear product graphics re-inforce the considered design of N-Connex.
N-Connex doesn’t just look rugged, it has been manufactured to withstand the harshest of environments with an IP67 rated enclosure constructed from custom extruded aluminium that is CNC machined and hard anodised. Super tough, injection moulded end caps provide both impact protection and easily accessible carry handles during transit and installation.
