METS 1.0

Matrix METS 1.0 System


METS 1.0 is an electronic safety and tracking system designed specifically for quick installation in mines with underground Ethernet infrastructure to track underground personnel and equipment. The system tracks tags mounted to miners' hats or vehicles as they move throughout a mine.

MSHA approved, intrinsically-safe tracking 'Tags' transmit an identifying signal to 'Readers' located at strategic points throughout a mine. Readers transmit the location information to systems with monitors for displaying the information in map and table formats.

METS 1.0 is an invaluable tool for increasing the safety, productivity, and efficiency of your mining operations. The system is scalable to accommodate small or large operations and flexible to keep up with the ever-changing plans of mining operations. Other features include:


  • Economical pricing
  • Simple installation in mines or hazardous environments with ethernet infrastructure
  • Four individually addressable antenna ports
  • More reliable tracking than a dispatcher
  • Mine emergency and custom reporting
  • Integration available for HMI's like RSView with OPC Server
  • Unmatched technical support and professional installation
  • Over 15,000 tags in production use in US
  • Product installations in WV, KY, IN, IL, PA, NM
  • Local distributors for sales and service
  • Cost-effective to purchase and maintain
  • Reader/Node placement not limited to line-of-sight with other nodes
  • Used in mines with 500+ employees
