New hybrid power tower site from Pepro runs for months without refueling
Pepro Hybrid Scout Faraday Cage Shelter Will Run for More Than 30 Days without External Power or Service
Pepro LLC, a leading manufacturer of shielded enclosure systems for stationary and mobile applications, is announcing its Hybrid Scout. The Hybrid Scout is a highly configurable mobile radio tower site that runs on hybrid power, capable of providing more than a month of uninterrupted service for emergency and public safety communications depending on the equipment used.
In a field-ready configuration demonstrated at IWCE, the Hybrid Scout includes a trailer, a fully equipped enclosure in 54 rack units, a 45 foot tower, hybrid power and shore power connection. It can be put into service by one person in well under an hour without specialized training. The fully operational site will run for more than 30 days without service (a 30 to 45 day run time based on a 500W continuous load). The shelter’s patented Faraday Cage construction also protects the enclosed equipment from threats including lightning strikes, radio frequency interference, electro-magnetic interference and passive intermodulation.
Considering that many radio sites are remote and hard to reach, this not only provides extra assurance that communications will be reliable in bad conditions, but saves the significant time and cost of refueling every few days.
