eSITE x10 – UNIQUE AND VERIFIED LEVEL OF REGULATORY
During its development, eSite x10 was taken through several phases of extremely rigorous testing by a leading independent European test lab, the likes of which no other telecom site power system has ever been subjected to. These included, water, vibration, shock, heat, cold, humidity, radio, electromagnetic, electrical and fire safety.
The aim was to create the world’s first telecom site power system purpose-built from the individual component level as an outdoor unit – one that would be certified to comfortably take even the most challenging of environments in its stride. The aim was fully achieved and the result is a product that takes international standards compliance to an entirely new level for telecom site power systems.
eSite x10 is a power supply unit for outdoor telecom infrastructure equipment, compliant with ETSI EN 300 386. As such, eSite itself has also been built to the highest ETSI standards, making it the perfect companion for outdoor telecom sites.
eSite x10 is certified to ETSI standards in the areas of vibration and shock resistance, outdoor climate, and electromagnetic compliance (EMC). All EMC testing has been done with physically realistic cabling and power distribution, meaning the complete eSite x10 system has been subject to the rigors of the ETSI 300 386 standard.
eSite x10 is manufactured as a single unit that is CE-certified to avoid fire hazards and risks of electrical shock. Note that this is very different from other telecom site power systems where CE-certified components may well be used, but are then assembled in to a cabinet without the final certification of the full telecom site power system.
eSite x10 is the first telecom site power system compliant with IEC standard “IEC 60950-22”, ensuring the highest level of personal electrical safety in outdoor environments. This is important in order to guarantee a safe site environment at all times for field personnel, site guards, etc.
eSite x10 is fully compliant with the European Union’s health and environment directives regarding product design and manufacturing. REACH defines four processes that address registration, evaluation, authorisation and restriction of chemicals. ROHS restricts the use of hazardous substances in electrical and electronic equipment.
