On 15 March, Ampcontrol were named as the 2018 NSW Minerals Council Outstanding Supplier at the annual Industry and Suppliers Awards Dinner at NSW Parliament in Sydney.
Ampcontrol’s General Manager of Sales, Garry Hillier accepted the Outstanding Supplier Award for the development and supply of H3RO, a fibre based communications and networking solution for underground mining and industrial applications, which has been adopted by 16 mining operations since its launch in 2015.
Rod Henderson, Ampcontrol CEO and Managing Director said “Our H3RO product has been an innovative game changer for Ampcontrol, enabling the effective use of fibre technology in underground mining operations that has historically been difficult to achieve.”
“We knew our customers wanted a reliable fibre optic solution for their underground operations, so we listened to their feedback and proactively addressed the challenges they were experiencing by providing a robust, cost effective, portable and easy to install fibre optic solution.”
“Being recognised as Outstanding Supplier of the Year is a true testament to everyone at Ampcontrol and it’s humbling to know that the H3RO product has been so well received in the market” added Mr Henderson.
The Universal Appeal of the H3RO solution
Ampcontrol’s H3RO product has also been on display this week at the Leading Age Services Australia 2018 Conference on the Gold Coast, welcoming 350 delegates through the conference exhibition stand.
As H3RO is a fibre optic communications solution, it is applicable to support the continued development of aged care infrastructure projects.
John Hooper, H3RO and Networking Automation Product Manager said “We’ve been demonstrating how H3RO can be used as part of passive optical network architecture to improve ICT reliability, while reducing the cost and complexity by converging the connected services for smart buildings.”
“This can support new and legacy technologies in aged care facilities including phones, nurse call systems, wifi, CCTV and digital TV/Foxtel,” he said.
Ampcontrol celebrates its 50th year of business in 2018 and continues to be a vital supplier to Australia’s resources sector with its complete range of electrical, electronic systems solutions and service support.
