MineLink uses the latest most advanced Microsoft Windows Operating system because it is a wellmaintained, very stable operating system and supported by Microsoft and therefore will be further enhanced and supported in the future.
SNCTechnologies carefully chose the latest next generation Windows Embedded family operating system for its onboard mobile devices and built its own custom applications software. Microsoft Windows Server and Microsoft SQL server software are utilized for the MineLink Server. Microsoft SQL Compact (CE) is utilized for the individual high capacity and fast roaming onboard mobile unit database.
To avoid data corruption on the mobile onboard devices due to any mine vehicle electrical supply interruptions, the on-board unit includes a custom EWF (Enhanced Write Filter) that has been used in combination with the implementation of an industrial grade Compact Flash Card.
