Surge protection from small cell power protection cabinets
Transtector Systems has introduced a comprehensive line of AC power protection cabinets engineered specifically for small cell sites, combining a co-location approved field-configurable branch breaker architecture with integrated high-reliability surge protection into compact, ruggedised and lightweight configurations.
Well suited for applications such as picocells, microcells, macrocells, 5G nodes, DAS systems, load expansions, and other small cell locations, these new cabinets address the growing range of power requirements in the expanding small cell market.
With small cell interface requirements varying among GSMA, CDMA, LTE, WiMAX, 3G, 4G and 5G, network engineers often require versatile, dynamic power solutions. Transtector’s compact, small cell cabinets enable quick installation to meet current demands, with design flexibility for future expansion.
“Co-location will be a very important aspect of the small cell rollout, so we strived to develop a solution that could evolve and scale to meet the power needs over the life cycle of each site,” said Gabriel Guglielmi, Vice President of Product Management. “With these new field configurable cabinets, we’re providing a dynamic, compact, easy-to-deploy power distribution solution that is designed to lower total cost of ownership, while also building a layer of reliability into the network – all in one box.”
In addition to standard configurations, users can partner with Transtector engineers to develop a modified or custom enclosure to fit the application.
Key power protection cabinet features include:
- Compact footprint for versatility and convenient field installation.
- Service entrance rated – separate disconnect between utility and cabinet not required.
- Field configurable branch breakers lower total cost of ownership.
- Co-location approved.
- Rugged, outdoor NEMA 3R enclosure.
- Reliable silicon or MOV technology surge protection.
- Configurable options.
- Ten year warranty.
