In 2014, New York City added a provision to their building code that requires all newly constructed high-rise buildings in New York City to have an Auxiliary Radio Communication (ARC) System.
An ARC system is a wireless two-way building communication system for Fire Department use only that receives and transmits Fire Department portable radio frequencies within the building. An ARC system typically consists of a transceiver (base station) connected to a building-wide antenna system, with a radio console in the building lobby.
ARC systems need to operate continuously, and in worst cases in the most inhospitable conditions to ensure that communications are always available for first responders.
EIC Solutions has recently produced an enclosure designed to safely house and protect this critical radio communication equipment. Based on our Protector series air conditioned enclosures, the ARC enclosure features:
For harsh ARC System locations, you can optionally integrate an EIC Solutions thermoelectric air conditioner to environmentally protect the equipment and reduce equipment failure. EIC’s ThermoTEC™ Series features a complete line of compact, solid state thermoelectric air conditioners designed specifically for enclosures. Available from 200 BTU– 3,500 BTU our thermoelectric air conditioners feature:
