In a recent project, I was presented with the issue of getting a 2 megapixel Speed Dome on a pole that only had a power output.
We had to figure out not only how to get the video back to the main building 200ft away as well as providing POE power to both the PTZ and the Antenna, but to also have a network switch located on the pole. The problem is they don’t make affordable POE switches that are pole mountable and weather rated. We needed a low cost solution to provide shelter for the devices and regulate the temperature to ensure it does not overheat or get too cold.
We decided to get a weather rated enclosure that would except 110V from the pole and convert it over to work with the switch and POE injector. It has an internal heater and blower system and ventilation slats to help regulate the temperature and ensure reliability.
The setup with this wireless transmitter enclosure has since been used on many different installs and has proven to be very cost effective and incredibly versatile across many applications.
