During emergencies like fires, a sprinkler system can wreak havoc on communications equipment and interfere with the vital transfer of information when it is most needed. Cellular equipment and wireless access points that can be kept dry and sealed become an especially important asset, allowing for emergency calls and wireless public service notifications to reach their destinations.
To address the issue of communications safety and performance when water is present, Oberon has merged its popular lines of ceiling enclosures for wireless access points and its line of NEMA-rated indoor/outdoor enclosures to create a new indoor, water-tight enclosure.
This aesthetic, white powder-coated water and dust-proof enclosure has knockouts in the hinged door for ceiling-mounted antennas or watertight bulkhead connectors for antennas. The watertight enclosure is designed to withstand high pressure spray and washdown, making it especially suitable for use in healthcare facilities, labratories, and other places where contact with water may occur.
The Model 1028s are deep enough to accommodate the Cisco 3600/3700 Aironet Series and other large wireless access points and DAS remote access units with external connectors and up to five antennas.
