CONSPECJohannesburg – Officials from RAMJACK and CONSPEC today unveiled a new partnership agreement making RAMJACK the Sub-Saharan Africa distribution partner for CONSPEC’s range of gas detection and control systems.

“We are very excited to be re-entering the Sub-Saharan market with RAMJACK,” said Dave McCullough, Senior Vice President of CONSPEC.  “Our monitoring and control technologies are perfect for the harsh environments in Africa and we are looking forward to working together with RAMJACK to meet the requirements of mining customers in the region.”

CONSPEC has been serving the global mining industry since 1968 and is a leader in the field of gas detection. Their gas monitoring systems are approved for use in hazardous areas of underground coalmines and designed for easy and economical expansion. The system continuously monitors CO and other toxic and combustible gases and can be configured to communicate alarms throughout the mine.

“This is very exciting technology for RAMJACK’s real-time, safety monitoring portfolio” said Mike Jackson – RAMJACK’s Co-Founder and Director.  “With CONSPEC’s gas monitoring and control systems entering our product range, RAMJACK is fully equipped to provide mining operations throughout Africa with the sensors and the networks required to remotely monitor the safety of people and equipment underground.”

RAMJACK was busy in 2014 building a strong suite of complementary technologies for real-time monitoring of mines. CONSPEC’s gas monitoring technology completes RAMJACK’s product portfolio which now covers geotechnical instrumentation with MDT, mobile laser mapping with uGPS Rapid Mapper™, safety and documentation management with Salistera and production monitoring, people tracking and sensor networking with Newtrax Technologies.
