Electrical and Electronic Cabinet Cooling Systems for Transportation, Power Generation and Water Systems Applications

EIC Solutions has long serviced infrastructure sub-markets such as power & energy, mass transit, waste water, telecom, and security applications. With years of experience serving these industries, EIC Solutions has been involved in protecting network equipment, process controls, and surveillance systems from harsh environments, ensuring safe and reliable operation.
U.S. Infrastructure is forecasted to grow considerably over the next 4 years. The vision of the new administration demonstrates an increased focus on infrastructure needs in many of the specific areas EIC Solutions has a successful track record. The anticipated growth surrounding this development indicates a greater need to integrate EIC Solutions’ products to keep sensitive equipment running smoothly and reliably. Each infrastructure sub-market utilizes various types of electronic equipment, which can be exposed to extreme environments. EIC Solutions’ U.S. manufactured products are ideally suited to service the various sub-markets:

Power and Energy

solar-panels-and winmillsEIC Solutions has experience with power generation, renewable energy, nuclear power, and solar park applications. Each of these energy centers uses critical electronic components and generators to control the processes in which they create power. Often these industrial facilities can be inhospitable environments for sensitive equipment. Outdoor solar parks require monitoring and control equipment installed at remote locations, which are also exposed to extreme outdoor conditions. Customizations such as reduced aluminum or silicone content are also available to address the needs of some nuclear facilities. EIC Solutions has provided rugged NEMA enclosures with integral cooling, that house and environmentally protect controls, servers, monitoring equipment and other sensitive electronics allowing uninterrupted operation. See the links below for more in-depth information on some of EIC’s solutions for the Power industry.

Transportation

elevated-subway-carsTransit infrastructure spending is expected to increase significantly in the near future, with a focus on enhanced security to provide increased safety in mass transit systems.  Outdoor transit improvements face challenges because sensitive electronics are subject to extreme ambient temperatures, solar exposure, humidity, vibration and airborne contaminants. Typically equipment for transit applications is installed in remote locations, making maintenance difficult and costly. EIC Solutions’ thermoelectric, solid state air conditioners do not have liquid lines, filters, or refrigerant making our units the ideal no maintenance solution for these remote installations. EIC Solutions supplies outdoor NEMA rated enclosures that are environmentally controlled eliminating downtime or failure due to overheating, with mass transit applications including:

Communication Shelters/Ticket Vending Kiosks
Audio/Visual Signage
DMX Controls – Bridge LED Lighting
Camera/DVR Equipment
Bus Terminal Surveillance Equipment
Parking Garage Security Systems

Water Treatment Facilities

water-treatment-facilityIn the aftermath of the Flint, Michigan water crisis, cities and municipalities all across the country are reviewing and improving processes surrounding water treatment and safety.  Companies that provide water quality monitoring, treatment and analysis will be integral to ensuring access to safe drinking water. Much of this monitoring and treatment equipment requires tight temperature control to ensure accurate and precise readings. With no CFC’s the environmentally friendly, solid state design of EIC Solutions’ air conditioners are ideal for wastewater treatment facilities. Indoor wastewater facilities that are subject to corrosive, high-pressure, wash-down environments utilize corrosion resistant options we have available. Here’s just one example of how EIC helps Water Treatment Facilities ensure our drinking water is safe.

Telecommunications

satellite-dishesThe telecom sector has been trending toward massive growth and innovation over the past few years and is expected to continue to grow as the number of smart devices connected to the IoT (Internet of Things) progresses. The ability to utilize the IoT technology for remote monitoring will create massive opportunities within the telecom industry to grow sub-markets including network equipment, monitoring, and video/camera companies. To accommodate the quickly growing telecom market there are anticipated 5G field tests scheduled for 2017 with a push for a 2020 roll out of 5G networks to the masses. Increasing speed of communications is critical to the telecom industry but security and data encryption will be a paramount component of these network upgrades. EIC Solutions has long serviced the telecom market providing products that house and environmentally protect the sensitive equipment including camera systems, DVR’s, radios, computers, control devices, security equipment and other electronic devices. In many cases this equipment is outdoor, in remote locations and subject to harsh environments. EIC Solution’s maintenance free, solid state, thermoelectric air conditioners and NEMA enclosures ensure telecom equipment will run at optimum performance, with telecom applications including:

Telecom/Cameras/DVR
Digital Camera System

Security

cctv-security-systemsTechnology is advancing at a rapid pace creating a growing need for security. Over the next 4 years the security market is expected to increase dramatically in both public and private sectors. Increased concerns with border security and cyber threats make security a top priority. EIC Solutions has supplied products to numerous security firms and major defense contractors, to protect the very equipment that keeps us safe. Within the numerous security applications on which EIC has worked, we have protected many different types of equipment including, mobile firewalls preventing cell-phone triggered IED’s from detonating, encryption communication gear for mortar tracking, remote surveillance for US ballistic missile sites, license plate recognition, RFID readers at US border, mass transit surveillance systems and countless additional applications. EIC Solutions rugged design is ideal for either mobile, or stationary applications in harsh environments where maintenance is not required and failure is not an option. EIC Solutions is dedicated to protecting your sensitive equipment and keeping security top priority, with additional applications including:

Border Security
IED Detection Systems
Remote Monitoring
Military Flight Simulator
