Pepro LLC, the leading manufacturer of shielded enclosure systems for stationary and mobile applications, is introducing the new Hybrid MicroSite radio site at CTIA in Las Vegas. The new site includes a two-bay shelter with 54 units of rack space protected by patented Faraday cage technology, a 20-foot tower and a trailer dismount system that can install the site for long-term use without disturbing the enclosed equipment.

The site includes three solar panels, batteries and DC-generator to power the site for months without fuel service. The Hybrid MicroSite is the second hybrid site launched this year by Pepro, joining the Hybrid Scout announced in March.

“Extreme weather events over the past year reinforced everyone’s awareness of the need for communications sites that withstand unpredictable circumstances,” said Kelly Lander, president of Pepro, LLC. “Pepro sites have always offered reliable protection against the elements, and the new Hybrid MicroSite goes a step further to protect against service interruption due to inaccessibility. It can serve as a long-term solution for remote locations or stand at the ready to be deployed in emergencies for as long as it’s needed without concerns about fuel service.”

The Hybrid MicroSite provides months of service without refueling, depending on factors such as available sunlight and the power needs of the equipment on site. Its unique trailer dismount system keeps the shelter level, giving one person the ability to set the enclosure in place without extensive training. These convenience factors make the Hybrid MicroSite especially useful in hard to reach locations where shipping in trained teams or fuel is inefficient or hard to schedule.

Pepro has provided shielded enclosures based on its patented Faraday cage technology for more than 20 years without a single loss of protected equipment. Every Pepro shelter meets rigorous standards, sustaining a one million volt, 87,000 amp direct strike with less than ten micro joules entering enclosure.
