Fitelnet is a specialist in EMP/HPM protection and designing, building, and maintaining radio and telecommunication networks, product development, and electrical assembly. The company is also part of a consortium offering a state-of-the-art solution for data transfer and integration during crises and natural catastrophes.
Essential electronic equipment, especially that used by defence forces and the authorities, needs to be protected against the threat posed by electromagnetic pulses (EMPs) resulting from intentional electromagnetic interference or a high-altitude nuclear detonation, as well as high-power microwave (HPM) weapons. The voltage surges that result from these events can damage or destroy all unprotected electronic equipment or components in their path.
|Fitelnet’s EM/HPMP-protected system cabinets are designed to provide excellent attenuation over a very wide frequency spectrum. |
System cabinets from Fitelnet have been designed to prevent such damage occurring.
The company’s EMP/HPM-protected system cabinets are constructed of stainless steel for strength and durability, combined with light weight; and are designed and tested for excellent attenuation over a very wide frequency spectrum.
All interfaces and connectors, such as 2M transmission connectors, are EMP-protected and supplied to customer specifications. Optical interfaces can be used when higher rates are required. Interfaces are protected with Fitelnet’s advanced FAPS-8 filter, the most effective unit of its type on the market.
Fitelnet’s cabinets are designed for flexibility, with options for rack and sub-rack configurations. Integration with commercial telecommunications equipment and products – such as TETRA base stations, transmission systems, links, or GSM – is fully supported.
|The flexibility of Fitelnet’s solutions enables an EMP/HPM-protected platform to operate in a range of different environments. |
A large variety of equipment can be protected within a cabinet, enabling an EMP/HPM-protected platform to operate in a range of environments. Cabinets can be used in fixed systems or integrated into vehicles and/or containers. Each solution is closely tailored to customers’ specific requirements. A modular, rack-based solution is offered for TETRA base stations (TBS).
EMP-protected system cabinets have already been supplied to the Finnish Defence Forces as part of their Deployable COTS Network (DCN) project.
Fitelnet also provides a wide range of telecom contracting and consulting services. These primarily focus on TETRA technology, but also cover other technologies as well; and Fitelnet has provided indoor coverage planning services for a number of demanding sites around the world.
In addition to consulting and planning, installation, commissioning, and system integration, Fitelnet also offers product development, project management, project export, testing, supervision, and maintenance services.
