Oberon, Inc. Announces New Compact NEMA-4 Enclosures for Stadium Deployments
Press release date: January 18, 2012
State College, PA - As the use of wireless mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets expands exponentially, network designers must prepare to provide robust and seamless wireless coverage over large areas and a wide variety of environments. Where weather and other conditions are less than ideal, protecting equipment while retaining full performance becomes a major consideration in network design. Oberon's new Models 1021-00 and 1026-00 are compact NEMA-4 enclosures designed specifically to protect Cisco 1140, 1260, 3500, 3502p, and 3600 series and other wireless LAN access points in challenging outdoor environments such as retail centers, college campuses, and stadiums. The rugged polycarbonate enclosure protects the access point from weather, dust, and impacts. With proper sealing, these enclosures are NEMA-4X rated. The plastic is UV stabilized for outdoor installations.
The National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA) rates enclosures according to the ability to protect against such hazards as falling objects, water, ingress of water, and the formation of ice on the enclosure. Oberon's NEMA enclosures are designed and tested to meet NEMA 1, 2, 4, 4X, 12, and 13 specifications, IP66 of IEC 529, and UL508-4X requirements. Performance meets physical protection in Models 1021-00 and 1026-00. The enclosures are made of a durable, impact resistant polycarbonate plastic which is virtually transparent to wireless signals. Access points with body integrated antennas or small detachable antennas may be protected while mounted in recommended configurations. Antennas may be mounted externally by drilling holes in the plastic for antenna cables. Oberon's NEMA enclosures are a perfect match for the Cisco Aironet 3502p access point and MIMO Patch Array stadium antenna, which can be mounted on the enclosure for a compact installation. The result is a no-compromises solution that is Ideal for Wireless NetworksTM.
