HVAC Controller for Shelter or Enclosure The CommStat Touch telecom controller from the Marvair Group is designed to allow remote-control and monitoring of redundant Marvair heat pumps or air conditioners with single or dual twostage compressors in a shelter or enclosure. Electrical Testing Labs (ETL) has certified the controller for HVAC UL60950-1 and FCC47CFR compliance. The controller features a color touchscreen interface. In addition to controlling the HVAC equipment, the controller provides status information, alarm notifications, set-point adjustment and remote HVAC configuration. The controller includes the Marvair RemoteLink IPv4/IPv6 communication module and the latest-generation CommStat 4 PLCbased telecom controller. A standard Category 5 Ethernet cable connects the controller to the shelter local network. www.airxcel.com Shielded Enclosure Systems Pepro manufactures patented shielded- enclosure systems ideal for use on remote mountain tops, rooftops and at tower bases. These units use the Faraday cage principle to shield sensitive digital communications equipment from the effects of radiofrequency interference (RFI), electromagnetic interference (EMI) and electromagnetic pulse (EMP). These enclosures can be ordered with an attached tower, or they can be part of a complete platform tower system. Several of the units can be deployed by helicopter to remote locations or deployed by crane to rooftops. Standard features include shelters or enclosures, towers, a leveling and stabilization system and a solar panel. www.peprollc.com Equipment Enclosures and Platforms Fibrebond’s line of equipment enclosures, including concrete shelters, integrated cabinet skids and steel platforms, is designed to provide highly customized building solutions. Professional equipment installations and field services offer the advantages of cost savings, time savings and safer working conditions. Fibrebond is experienced in the integration of generators, utility power systems, ATS, power distribution units, batteries, overvoltage protection (OVP) units, routers, UMTS radios and LTE radios. www.fibrebond.com Precast Concrete Flood Protection Platform The Kenner chain wall from Forterra protects generators, cabinets, fuel tanks and large concrete shelters from floods. The company customizes each platform to meet structural design and elevation requirements. Use of the wall can reduce overall cost and schedule time, and it can eliminate concrete pours in the field. Because the company delivers each chain wall to the project site as a finished structure, platform installation can be measured in minutes versus days. Kenner Innovative Design Systems has a patent for the chain wall system. Forterra manufactures it at facilities across the United States and Canada. www.forterrabp.com www.kennerchainwall.com NEMA Outdoor Wi-Fi Enclosure Ventev’s next-generation NEMA enclosure offers an aesthetically pleasing sleek design, with curved edges and a lower profile suitable for indoor and outdoor environments on campuses and in city centers. Rated 4X by the National Electrical Manufacturers Association, the enclosure is constructed of durable, RF-transparent polycarbonate plastic that protects RF equipment from adverse weather, theft and tampering. The enclosure resists corrosion and ultraviolet (UV) light. www.ventev.com Concealments for Cell Sites Peabody Engineering’s unique fabrication process combined with its FiberScreen and PolyScreen products allows the creation of unique custom shelters and enclosures for each specific location. The concealments are designed to seamlessly blend in with the existing architecture, while adding value and beauty. Working closely with general contractors and engineering firms, Peabody offers full-service design and engineering, CAD drawings — or even just a quick shop drawing, to meet critical project needs. The concealments come with a variety of surface textures and treatments and are available painted and ready to install, quick and easy onsite. www.4peabody.com/rftc-concealment Cabinet Family Eltek’s 3030 enclosure can be configured for power, battery and equipment applications. The enclosure incorporates tailored thermal systems (air conditioners, heat exchangers and heaters) that will keep even the most sensitive electronics functioning in extreme environments. The cabinet family consists of a durable, ⅛-inch-thick aluminum weldment that measures 30 inches wide by 30 inches deep. The most popular version is 40U high; however, other sizes are available. The cabinet comes with mounting rails in the front and rear for flexible, configurable access. Standard features include hardened, Type 3 ULlisted outdoor enclosure and two sets of heavy-duty, 23-inch adjustable rack rails that allow for equipment to be mounted in the front and rear of the cabinet. www.eltek.com/us/us Concealment Shrouds The SHRD60 series of concealment shrouds from Charles Industries features a curved, modern design that matches utility pole contours, eliminating the right angles found in typical equipment enclosures. Providing concealment for small cell or densification deployments of radios, AC-to-DC power supplies, diplexers, combiners, splitters and fiber or power termination, the shrouds are best for meeting municipal concealment requirements. The 46-inch and 70-inch length designs hold two to seven radios. Features include vented thermal management, powdercoated finish in a variety of colors, left- or right-hinged doors for placement flexibility and an integrated support spine for mounting to wood, steel, concrete or composite poles. www.charlesindustries.com Environmental Case System The newest enclosure system from Phoenix Contact protects electronics from potentially damaging elements commonly found in outdoor applications and extreme indoor environments. The two-piece sealed environmental case system (ECS) creates IP66, IP67 and NEMA 6 ratings with a latch or screw-locking method. The enclosure has integrated connection options with one or two M12 inserts, as well as an option for a cable gland. Alternatively, a blank faceplate can be modified to accommodate any sealed connector that fits within the housing profile. The polycarbonate (PC) enclosure withstands rapid temperature swings, UV exposure and extreme temperatures of −40°C to 85°C. The integrated connection technology simplifies packaging devices intended for control on vehicles, rugged industrial wireless applications and even small cell installations. www.phoenixcontact.com/ecs Outdoor Enclosures CommScope’s field-proven and environmentally rugged outdoor enclosures are designed to deploy quickly and offer reduced OpEx and a small footprint. The manufacturer’s broad portfolio features aesthetically pleasing cabinets for power and battery, battery backup, macro cell site and micro cell site use. CommScope’s outdoor enclosures are designed to increase the user’s ROI while ensuring performance. www.commscope.com Drone Inspection Training DataWing Global’s Flight Academy teaches cell tower owners to pilot drones, navigate FAA rules and regulations and pass the FAA Part 107 exam.
