CommScope, Inc., (NYSE: CTV), a world leader in infrastructure solutions
for communication networks, announces the introduction of the 30EC
Modular Battery Cabinet. This cabinet is designed as a reserve power
storage system capable of using multiple vendors' batteries. As a
modular adjunct battery cabinet, the design supports increased DSL
capacity in previously deployed systems.
The CommScope 30EC Modular Battery Cabinet, with dimensions of 31" wide
x 30" deep x 31.5" high can be stacked two cabinets high to double the
capacity. This stacking offers a "pay as you grow" approach, keeping
initial installation costs to a minimum. The cabinet is designed to
accommodate batteries from leading suppliers of lead acid or nickel
cadmium telecom batteries.
The Modular Battery Cabinet benefits include:
-- two shelves in each module for increase in battery backup
-- AC powered battery heating system for prolonged battery life
-- separate breakers for installation, turn-up and maintenance control
of each battery string
-- quick disconnect battery cabling system for each shelf, allowing for
-- alarm and status signals that report operational conditions to the
-- weather-hardened enclosures that protect the batteries and other
-- multiple conduit and placement options that provide ease and
flexibility of cabinet placement next to the host cabinet
"In addition to the above benefits, all CommScope battery cabinets come
with our enhanced cooling system and a battery heating system to keep
batteries close to the optimal temperature for improved battery
performance and longer battery life," said Ted Hally, executive vice
president and general manager, Carrier.
Through the Carrier group, CommScope has manufactured over 350,000
