The PBE Group
Industries We Serve
The PBE mission has always been to design and build reliable, high tech
equipment for mine safety and productivity. Four decades later that
tradition continues as we provide mine-wide monitoring and
communications equipment all over the world.
PBE was founded to supply eastern U.S.
coal mines with quality electronic
equipment and we continue to do so, but
over the years we have expanded our sales
to include many other industries all over
the world.
PBE has installed its proprietary personnel and vehicle tracking system in over
100 underground mines, enabling real-time reporting and tracking
information, improving mine safety and productivity. The PBE MineBoss™
monitoring system is currently operating in over 300 U.S. mines, and we are
the leading U.S. manufacturer of conveyor monitoring and controls, wired
and wireless gas monitoring, fire and dust suppression and paging telephone
lines, with installations in mining operations all over the globe.
In 2012, PBE acquired Minecom as part of its expansion plan within the Asia
Pacific region creating PBE Australia. PBE’s Minecom Leaky Feeder systems
are often installed in conjunction with our personnel and vehicle tracking
system. Not only are the Minecom Leaky Feeder and PBE tracking systems
suited for post-accident applications, they serve as superior productivity
In 2013, PBE acquired Mine Radio Systems (MRS). This acquisition solidified
our commitment to customer oriented global sales and local service.
The PBE Group is a constant innovator with significant investments in R&D.
Recent and imminent projects include our Generation 4 leaky feeder
amplifier, Proximity Alert System, wireless gas monitoring, underground text
messaging and ventilation on demand.
With global sales and local service The PBE Group are your one-stop-shop for
mine safety and productivity to support your mining operations now and for
years to come.
Currently we sell equipment to:
Coal Mines
Metal and Non-Metal Mines
Natural Gas Producers
Tunnelling Operations
Construction Industries
Water Treatment Plants.
Even if we did not list your industry
specifically, our versatile and varying
product lines mean we have something for
everyone, whether it is a total monitoring
solution or a simple tilt level switch.

Underground and Surface Radio Communications
Centrian (Cable Modem Termination System)
PBE’s Minecom Leaky Feeder System (VHF & UHF)
provides a reliable, easily expandable underground
communications system as well as a backbone for our
tracking and safety products.
Centrian (CMTS) is the industry's first Cable Modem
Termination System over leaky feeder cable, providing
an integrated communication solution for voice and
high speed data. Centrian has been engineered as the
first communication solution that provides high speed
internet services between surface and underground.
The sophisticated Centrian solution allows for use of
both VHF portable radios and Voice over IP handsets.
Centrian allows for wireless "hot spots" to be
strategically deployed anywhere the leaky feeder cable
is installed.
The PBE Minecom Leaky Feeder system is the most
reliable, clear and efficient two-way communications
on the market with digital capabilities.
Each Minecom Leaky Feeder System will be tailored to
specific site requirements to provide the best radio
coverage and data communications. The Minecom
Leaky Feeder system is a mine radio system that can
provide complete communications coverage for your
mine site including above ground site linking.

Personnel and Equipment Tracking
MineBoss Monitoring and Control Software
The PBE mine-wide Tracking system is capable of
determining the location of personnel and equipment
by detection of the RFID tags worn by mine personnel
or placed on mobile equipment. Tracking information
is displayed on our MineBoss software. Stationary
and portable tag readers (wireless or wired) are
available for transmitting data over either leaky feeder
communications systems (VHF or UHF) or over existing
infrastructure without the need to install a new
The PBE MineBossTM Monitoring and Control Software
is used for displaying the location of miners and
equipment throughout any underground mine,
tunneling operation or industrial facility. This
information is gathered from the Tracking system and
the interface can be provided by the Model 1961 Head
End Unit. MineBossTM provides the integration and
visibility for site-wide activity and allows control from a
centralized location. PBE provides mine-wide
monitoring and control solutions for a more efficient
and safe mine environment.
The wireless version of the Tracking system is MSHA
approved for hazardous atmospheres when operating
on bac up battery. 96+ hours battery backup is
