Changing the Wireless World for Light Poles with Intermittent Power

May 30, 2017

Powering an outdoor wireless surveillance system or Wi-Fi network on a light pole presents unique challenges. Many light poles have an intermittent AC power when they are tied to a master photocell or timer. This makes the deployment of active equipment such as radios and cameras very difficult. In these types of deployments, solar systems can be utilized; however, solar systems are large and expensive which makes it a poor choice for this type of deployment. Our engineering team was able to develop a proprietary charging system utilizing battery power during the day and provide seamless power transfer at night combined with fast battery re-charging.
