VANCOUVER, British Columbia, June 8, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Alpha Technologies Ltd., the power behind the evolution of communications networks, announced today the launch of a new power system that addresses the major challenges associated with powering outdoor Small Cells. The new product, called Cellect™, will be displayed at the 2015 DAS & Small Cells Congress taking place at The Roosevelt New Orleans on June 8-10, 2015.
"Reliable power has been one of the biggest hurdles to widespread deployment of outdoor Small Cells," said Grant Clark, Alpha's Vice President of Product Management & Development. "Over the past two years, we have collaborated with the leading service providers and OEMs, designing the ideal solution for Small Cell power. The result is the Cellect 600, a cost effective, high performance Small Cell power supply that provides the right amount of power and battery backup to overcome the majority of AC grid interruptions. To address the ever-present concerns for aesthetics and public acceptance, we designed a very compact footprint and made it paintable, ensuring that it will blend into any environment. With customer trials ramping up, we are eager to see how Cellect accelerates the pace of small cell deployments."
The Cellect 600, integrates battery backup with an AC/DC power supply in a compact, sealed enclosure designed to withstand harsh outdoor environments. Unlike other power systems for distributed wireless applications, the Cellect 600 delivers 600 Watts of output power through six (6) sealed connection ports, with the ability to be individually cycled remotely. The Cellect 600 provides over 10 minutes of battery backup at full load, to withstand the majority of interruptions in the AC grid. The lightweight (25 lbs.), low profile (16" x 9" x 6") enclosure is equipped with a universal mounting bracket, making it easy-to-install by a single technician on telecom poles, light poles or on the side of a building. While designed as a zero maintenance power supply with a unique battery and an industry leading warranty, the Cellect 600 also offers high efficiency power conversion as well as advanced monitoring and control, including SNMP, at both the system level and for individual circuits.
