DAS Solution for Wind Farms
For a reliable communication system, it is necessary to undertake regular maintenance, especially when there are physical obstacles that block a radio signal. Amphenol Procom have provided us with an example of how they helped a wind farm achieve radio coverage with a DAS solution.
The requirement was important due to safety reasons. They had to provide radio coverage inside wind turbines during maintenance. The coverage had to provide contact between wind turbine, support boat and shore. The challenge with the project was with the wind turbines construction. These are built of concrete steel and had a height of 80-120 meters. Furthermore, several steel platforms were blocking all radio signals.
Amphenol Procom developed a dual-band 2.4 GHz and 5.6 GHz Wi-Fi patch antenna and placed connected antennas both inside and outside the wind turbine. One antenna in the top, one in the bottom, and one outdoor CXL Omni antenna to pick up the RF signal.
The result was a reliable RF DAS system which secured the needed coverage for the maintenance workers.
