Air Conditioned Communication Shelter for Ticket Vending Kiosk

Rail Transportation

Electrical contractors rely on EIC Solutions to provide protection for their client’s critical electronics in a variety of industries, including mass transit. Light rail lines are often extended to serve rapidly developing areas that can be home to a number of educational, cultural, sports and entertainment destinations. These types of expansions can require outdoor communication shelters that are regularly subjected to harsh environmental conditions. To protect against equipment failure, EIC assists contractors and project managers by providing application specific and reasonably priced environmentally controlled shelters. EIC’s flexible manufacturing results in relatively short lead-times, even for custom solutions, so the customer’s projects are completed on time and within budget.

Communication shelters often house Cat6 patch panels, fiber optic communication links, communication converters and other equipment. They provide power and send data to ticket vending kiosks, digital signage and UPS systems. This and other sensitive mass transit equipment is often subject to extreme conditions, which require protection from harsh environmental concerns such as:

  • Break dust which is present in all rail and subway applications
  • Extreme ambient temperatures
  • Vibration
  • High Humidity
  • Rain, snow and wind
  • Solar Exposure

Sensitive electronics cannot be exposed to these severe conditions and require a controlled environment for optimal performance. Integrating a compact, robust, solid state cooling system into communication shelters can eliminate equipment downtime or failure due to overheating. As an industry expert in protecting sensitive electronics, EIC Solutions offers preconfigured and fully customizable communication shelters and enclosures with NEMA 4X thermoelectric coolers ideal for mass transit applications. We offer NEMA 12, 4, and 4X enclosures available with features including:Protector™ Rack Series Air Conditioned Enclosure - Rear View, Door Open
