Compact and lightweight configurable cabinets integrate power distribution

Transtector Systems has added to its comprehensive line of small cell NEMA-rated power cabinets with a wide range of configurations engineered for multifunctional power service entrance, surge protection, power distribution and fibre optic connectivity in a compact footprint.

The new SC-3MM-100-series enclosures combine critical functionality and capabilities for small cell/5G applications. Each enclosure is UL 508A service entrance-rated, removing the necessity for a separate disconnect between the cabinet and utility. A 100A input breaker provides more than ample capacity for typical installations.

Within the cabinet, integrated surge protection allows reliable protection and safe long-term equipment performance with no degradation after surge events. Configurable features include 16 branch circuit breakers for load protection to critical small cell electronics, 24 fibre optic couplers for distribution, two additional dual-pole breakers, three twisted-pair (copper) couplers, an RJ45 Ethernet interface, a GFCI outlet and more.

“Engineers and installers face a significant number of challenges in small cell and 5G applications, from local codes and environmental requirements to ever-growing system load requirements, provisioning, monitoring and diagnostic equipment, and more,” said Dan Rebeck, product line manager. “These new enclosures are field configurable, with best-in-class surge protection and the flexibility to meet today’s challenges as well as handle future expansion.”
