Solar/Wind Power

Alternative Energy Network Solutions


GNS Wireless offers high efficiency solar and wind power, solar kits, and components from Tycon Solar, which include high efficiency solar panels, pole/wall mounts, solar battery charge controllers and wind power.

 
  • The RemotePro™ series outdoor power systems are designed for applications that require a primary off-grid power source to run various electronics.   Solar powered point to point network connections are able to provide remote access to your wireless network.
  • The sealed and weatherproof enclosures have extra space available inside for customer electronics. All enclosures are hinged and gasket sealed.
  • The PL enclosure can accept a padlock or tamper seal.
  • The ST enclosure is equipped with 2 tamper proof closures that are operated by a special key (included).
  • The enclosures can be mounted to a wall or pole with the included mounting bracket system.
  • The high quality solar panels have a 25year power output guarantee.
  • The 5W and 10W solar panels are mounted directly to the DC enclosure saving space and making a more convenient assembly.
  • The larger solar panels can be mounted to a 2" to 4" diameter pole or alternately to a wall with the included bracket kit. Features include an advanced battery charge controller to protect against over-charging or over-discharging of the valve regulated sealed lead acid batteries.
  • Most of the PL and ST systems include a controller with built in POE inserter and DCDC converter to supply up to 48V POE from the 12V solar and wind power battery system.
  • Enclosures have multiple ports for CAT5 cable, antenna cables/connectors or other cabling. They are vented to prevent residual buildup of hydrogen gas.
  • Batteries in the DC and PL enclosures are an Advance Glass Matt (AGM) type which have good all temperature performance. The ST enclosure uses a high performance GEL battery which gives the best available deep discharge and temperature performance.

Typical Applications for solar and wind power:

  • Remote wireless access point or backhaul - bringing internet access to remote areas
  • Remote Wireless repeaters - extending wireless networks
  • Remote sensing applications - water level, water flow, wildlife migration, IR sensing, snow depth, remote weather stations
  • Video Surveillance - remote cameras, motion sensors, homeland security applications
  • Remote cabins/villages - provide basic power for equipment, lights, communications
  • Boats and campers - power for sailboats, power boats, campers - keep onboard batteries charged and ready
  • Electric Fencing for remote properties
  • Gate controls for ranches

Determine the Sun Hours Available Per Day

Several factors influence how much sun power your modules will be exposed to:
  • When you will be using your system – summer, winter, or year-round.
  • Typical local weather conditions
  • Fixed mountings vs. trackers
  • Location and angle of PV array
