eSite Telecom Site Power Systems


Based on Flexenclosure’s experience from large-scale telecom site power deployments in Africa and Asia, eSite™ x10 has been designed for the simplest possible rollout.  Deployment planning is greatly simplified by having a single unit that is pre-configured to handle all site types, including bad grid, off grid, single or dual gensets, solar power, new sites, shelter site upgrades, upgrades re-using existing battery cabinets, roof-tops, placement next to sensitive equipment (EMC), the list goes on…

All required systems are already in the unit – including support for dual AC power sources, solar converters, grid-genset changeover and power measurement and distribution for multiple tenants.  All tested and verified in the factory for full peace of mind that it will work perfectly when deployed on site.

Logistical savings

With eSite x10’s suitcase-sized form factor, up to 90 units can be shipped in a single 40-foot container, significantly reducing transport costs.  The eSite x10 can be hand-carried to site, bringing an additional cost reduction from avoiding the use of cranes on site.  And given that eSite x10 is preconfigured for all site types, costs related to last-minute plan changes or surprises on site are also reduced.


Installation savings

eSite x10’s plug-and-play functionality also means installation time is greatly reduced – by up to 50% when compared to competing telecom site power systems.  Even more important in many emerging markets is that this installation simplicity and remote configuration (via eSite Tools) greatly reduces the requirement for site installer training.


Simple four-step installation process

eSite x10 comes as a preconfigured and pre-tested unit direct from the factory and is easy to install in the following sequence:

  1. The eSite x10 bracket and connection compartment are mounted
    onto a battery cabinet or any other available vertical surface.
  2. External cabling (genset, grid, solar panels, tenants, etc.) is attached
    within the connection compartment. Cable input installation is monitored
    and electrically protected to avoid the possibility of mistakes.
  3. The suitcase-sized eSite x10 unit then simply slots on to the top of its
    cable connection compartment.
  4. Thereafter, the automatic installation procedure begins with settings
    provided remotely by eSite Tools, thus avoiding the possibility of
    human error during installation at site.

Note that – if not part of the original installation – tenants and/or solar panels can easily be added later.  Settings can be verified and, if needed, updated remotely to ensure correct operation and best site performance at all times.
