Telecom, wireless, and broadcast providers using remote sites to propagate their signals now have a new option in reducing site visits through the PowerBoss One or PB1, says Omnitronix, a supplier of remote monitoring equipment.

The firm’s PB1 control unit allows the individual power-cycling of eight independent pieces of equipment-such as routers, servers, transceivers, amplifiers and air conditioners at the mixed voltages commonly found in remote and local sites.

The PB1 relays can be used in a normally closed position, which ensures that power will still be provided to all remote equipment even if the PB1 was to experience a failure. This helps avoid a single point of failure, ensuring non-stop operation of remote site equipment, the company says.
