Cables are delivered ready for deployment, including the appropriate reels. Hand reels are appropriate for relatively short distances in a field camp or command post. NATO backpacks are appropriate for longer distances. For very long distances over land and water, a vehicle-mounted with a cable deployment bloc is the right choice.
Rotary joints are available as an option for for motor drives and reels to enable data and power connections during cable deployment.
Field cables can be deployed in a broad variety of terrain but should be appropriately secured and fastened.
Field cables can be metallic and therefore require appropriate lightning protection and grounding equipment.
Additional lightning and over voltage protection supplies for coaxial and power cables provided upon request.
Field cables are exposed to harsh environments and the weather. Despite the best of care a connection is sometimes broken.
Fiber optic field cables need periodic testing so that damaged areas can be localized. For this, there are appropriate test and measurement supplies.
Here are some application examples of reference projects from Solifos. Can’t find your project in the examples? Then get in touch with us personally.
The most universal method of deploying the field cable is on foot with the backpack. You can use it to move forward in almost any terrain and deploy the cable safely and ergonomically even over long distances.
The field cable can be deployed very comfortably with the vehicle and larger rolls with more cables can be used. Up to 10 km of cable can be laid on the XXL reels with one reel. Of course, not every terrain is suitable. However, the method can also be used with a ship if the cable e.g. to be laid on the seabed.
The cable can be freely tensioned through the air with wedge clamps. In this way, obstacles such as roads can be overcome in height. If no buildings, masts or trees can be used, e.g. the masts helpful for crossing a street. At the same point with two masts, up to 8 cable routes can pass the obstacle.
