Protected performance

Fitelnet’s system cabinets and filters provide industry-leading protection for the sensitive electronic systems and communications networks used by defence forces and official agencies.

Unprotected electronic equipment or components can be damaged or destroyed by the voltage surges that result from electromagnetic pulses (EMP) generated by electromagnetic interference, high-power microwave (HPM) weapons, or a high-altitude nuclear detonation.

This represents a major risk for the systems used by defence forces and official agencies, and means that they need effective protection to ensure that they remain operational.

Fitelnet’s system cabinets have been designed to provide just this protection. These EMP/HPMprotected cabinets offer excellent attenuation up to 18 GHz and feature stainless steel for strength, durability, and light weight.

Interfaces and connectors are EMPprotected and supplied to customer specifications. 2048 kbit/s and 100 Mbit/s. Interfaces are protected with Fitelnet’s advanced FAPS-8 filter, the most effective unit of its type on the market.

Fitelnet’s system cabinets provide excellent protection against EMP/HPM-related damage.

To give copper wire-based local area network (LAN) connections used for transferring critical data EMP/HPM protection, Fitelnet offers its unique FAPS-100 filter. Designed for 10/100BaseT interfaces in EMP/HPM-secure cabinets and rooms, the Fitelnet FAPS-100 filter can protect connections running at up to 100 Mbit/s.

Tailored protection

A Fitelnet cabinet – used as part of a fixed system or integrated into vehicles and/ or containers – can provide EMP/MPM protection for a variety of equipment, enabling platforms to operate in a wide range of environments. Individual solutions are closely tailored to customers’ specific requirements.

Fitelnet also supplies system shelters and trailers for crisis management operations, providing all the features required by military and official organisations when operating out in the field while giving access to an EMP/HPM-protected platform. Shelters and trailers can include splinter cell protection, generators, air conditioning, humidity control, masts, and other capabilities.

Telecom planning services

In addition to EMP/HPM products, Fitelnet also provides a wide range of telecom planning services. The company has provided TETRA indoor coverage planning services for a number of demanding sites in the Middle East, for example, incorporating some highly innovative and advanced solutions. Other sites to have benefited from Fitelnet’s planning expertise range from shopping centres and power plants to tunnels and towers.
