MODEL 50386P : Packaged Repeater
The HydroLynx Model 50386P Packaged Repeater is used to relay data from remote sites
to a central site where line-of-site radio paths do not exist. The complete package
includes a weather proof housing for the Model 50386RP Data Repeater, a high gain
omni antenna with mast, and a solar panel. The Model 50386P is designed for fast
efficient installation, with minimum environmental impact, at repeater sites where
no other structures or towers are available.
A 3.0 Amp solar panel is supplied as standard. This size requires a minimum of only
one sun hour per day to keep the repeater battery charged. The battery is sufficient
to operate the repeater for 20 days during periods of no sun. Additional batteries
can be supplied for longer periods of eligible sun.
The repeater battery voltage can be transmitted to the base station on a timed interval
or when a change threshold is met. Sensor input packages add sensor connectors to
the 50386 canister for on site data collection and transmission back to the base station.
