Solar (photovoltaic) technology has improved significantly in recent years increasing the number of applications. ELTEC working together with engineers have designed solar powered camera systems.
A solar powered camera system can be powered by either AC or DC. In areas where lightning strikes are a concern, cameras powered by solar eliminate the connection between the pole and the monitoring station.
When AC power is prohibitively expensive to connect to or not advisable due to above average lightning strikes, solar power is the answer. Each system is sized with a computer program which includes geographical location and electrical load for optimal effectiveness guaranteeing sufficient power for the camera: standard mount or pan-tilt-zoom.
