Transtector Systems, an Infinite Electronics brand and provider of end-to-end power and signal integrity products, has added to its line of small cell NEMA-rated power cabinets a broad range of configurations engineered for multifunctional power service entrance, surge protection, power distribution and fiber-optic connectivity in a compact footprint.

The company says its new SC-3MM-100-series enclosures combine critical functionality and capabilities for small cell/5G applications. Each enclosure is UL 508A service entrance-rated, eliminating the need for a separate disconnect between the cabinet and utility. A 100-amp input breaker provides more than ample capacity for typical installations.

Within the cabinet, integrated surge protection enables reliable protection and safe long-term equipment performance with no degradation following surge events. Configurable features include 16 branch circuit breakers for load protection to critical small cell electronics, two additional dual-pole breakers, 24 fiber-optic couplers for distribution, three twisted-pair (copper) couplers, an RJ45 Ethernet interface, a GFCI outlet, and more.

This degree of versatility is integrated into a single indoor/outdoor enclosure, with field configurability to minimize downtime during provisioning or maintenance.

“Engineers and installers face a significant number of challenges in small cell and 5G applications, from local codes and environmental requirements to ever-growing system load requirements, provisioning, monitoring and diagnostic equipment, and more,” said Dan Rebeck, Product Line Manager for Transtector. “These new enclosures are field configurable, with best-in-class surge protection and the flexibility to meet today’s challenges as well as handle future expansion.”

A summary of key features includes:

  • Pole/wall/H-frame mount
  • UL 508A Service entrance compliance
  • Co-location approved
  • 29" x 14" x 5" footprint

Typical usages/applications include:

  • Small cells
  • Picocells/microcells/macrocells
  • 5G nodes
  • Distributed antenna systems (DAS)
  • Co-locations
  • Light, utility and concealment poles

The new small cell NEMA-rated power cabinets are available today from Transtector and its global channel partners.
