Remote Radio Head Power

Our Remote Radio Head Power uses line-drop compensation (LDC) to improve radio powering. It is a 1RU shelf that provides up to 12 LDC circuits for safe and efficient powering of remote radio heads. Each shelf can accommodate up to four modules, each capable of driving three load cables. By elevating the voltage used to drive the cable, the inherent line drop can be tuned out, allowing the user to achieve lower operating costs by reducing the line losses. Conversely, smaller cables may be used to power similar loads using the compensator.  Each shelf can be operated as a stand-alone solution but can also be uplinked over the RS-485 data bus through the RJ-45 connection on the rear of the shelf.  This uplink allows each shelf to interface a Pulsar Plus controller (commonly used in our Infinity power systems) allowing local access, alarming and control of each circuit in every shelf, as well as remote interface over the controller LAN connection.
