Air Conditioned Enclosures for Remote High Frequency Radar Equipment


HF Radar Technology


Weather Data Collection and Tsunami Warning System

Protecting sensitive electronics that support HF (high-frequency) radar manufacturers, specifically for ocean current and wave monitoring, is an important task. See how EIC designed remote hardware to support HF radars that are commonly subjected to harsh corrosive environments.

The Solution

EIC Solutions, Inc. protects sensitive electronics that support HF (high-frequency) radar manufacturers, specifically for ocean current and wave monitoring. The measurements taken by HF radars provide data for tsunami warning systems by utilizing ocean current mapping. Identifying changes in current patterns helps further tsunami prediction accuracy. Remote hardware designed to support HF radars (including transmitters, receivers, and UPS systems) are commonly subjected to harsh corrosive environments. These installations are typically outdoors in costal or shipboard installations which require protection from environmental concerns such as:

  • Extreme Ambient Temperaturescodar-equipment-768x768
  • Salt Fog
  • Vibration
  • High Humidity
  • Solar Exposure
  • High Winds
  • Rain
  • Snow

Exposure to these harsh environmental conditions can be damaging to sensitive equipment. A thermally controlled and weather-resistant housing is essential to eliminate equipment downtime or failure. EIC’s, robust, environmentally controlled enclosures are an ideal solution to shelter HF radar hardware with features including:

  • NEMA 4X Type 304 stainless steel enclosures available in numerous sizes
  • Corrosion resistant upgrades including type 316 stainless steel
  • Epoxy coating ideal for coastal applications available for both 304 and 316 stainless steel
  • Solid state thermoelectric air conditioners with a closed loop design, rated NEMA 4X available in AC and DC voltages (200BTU-3200BTU)
  • Optional rain shroud for an additional degree of protection in extreme conditions
  • Single door OR dual access configurations for better access to equipment
  • Sub-panels, shelves or rack rails to mount equipment
  • Locking latches available in standard ¼ turn, barrel style padlock, or three point locking

EIC Solutions Inc. has a proven track record protecting sensitive electronics for radar systems, weather stations, and mobile communications, under the cruelest environmental conditions. Integrating electronics into an environmentally controlled, secure, enclosure reduces the risk of downtime or failure of critical warning systems during potentially catastrophic weather events.
