Questions to Consider When Evaluating Mobile Solutions

Does the system use AGM Battery Technologies?
Others option their AGM batteries at the cost of our battery pack AGM technologies. Their standards may be for old technology “deep cycle” wet cells. What this means to you is, without AGM batteries, you will have dangerous and corrosive gasses within your enclosure damaging your electronic hardware. Your batteries can spill, leak and quickly sulfate, greatly reducing the life of the battery. There is a maintenance and down time related to non-AGM technologies. The advantages are clear for AGM technology and at no additional cost from.
Does the system allow for non-factory modified changes at little to no additional costs?
Your Power Platform will remain a quality asset for many, many years, and as you know camera and communication technologies are changing fast. The solutions put you in control allowing effortless upgrading and modifications as new technologies come out. Others produce systems that are designed at the time with current technologies and are extremely difficult to repair and update.
Does the system incorporate effective methods of stabilizing the mast to that will maximize your investment in the camera technologies?
The standard in the industry has been to provide loose fitting telescoping masts. This is not acceptable for use with cameras. If the camera is bobbling around in the wind, your image quality is greatly compromised and makes technologies such as motion detection, motion tracking, and higher useful compression rates totally useless. Actually, it totally compromises the trust in the system to detect and protect, causing costly and frequent false alarms. provides an engineered Mast Stabilization System that greatly improves the camera’s usefulness and accuracy.
Does the system need to travel with the external hardware attached?
Others have inadequately designed systems when it comes to mounting cameras and communications external to the system. Some force the need to travel with your vibration sensitive electronic hardware permanently mounted to the system. Or, you need a toolbox and higher level technical knowhow and even a ladder to mount and attach electronics for deployment. The key is to be able to deploy with one person with limited technological experience in as short of time as possible. Once the system is deployed you need to trust that it was set up correctly and is going to remain safe.
Does the system include a fully modular design?
Others have taken a trailer and enclosure and installed electronic hardware using archaic installation methods. Just simply bolting items into structures greatly reduces usefulness and flexibility, and greatly increases maintenance costs. The trailers are totally modular, where component modules can be un-plugged and removed without the need to unwire and rewire the system.
Is the solar charging system safe, easy to deploy, and an option for the future without needing factory assistance?
Some systems either permanently mount a solar assist panel to the top of the enclosure, or provide large Solar Run systems that are hard and clumsy to install. The larger solar systems are an invitation for theft with unsecure methods of attachment. In addition, the installation requires 2 or more people for deployment & most of the entire configuration is potentially unsafe. The panels on other systems need to be carried and handled separately leading to potential damage. The solutions remove those concerns by providing highly stable single person deployment designs. provides solar connections and active components as a default in every system making every system solar ready without modifications. The panels are all designed to attach to the system even after the original order, and its mountings are stable and theft proof. The embedded solar systems travel & are stored right on the system; deployment is as simple as pulling a couple pins & then positioning the panels.
Was the system designed for reliable operation, or does the system look like a modification to existing technology?
When longer deployments are desired, there are some key criteria that needs consideration. The objective is to dependably deploy a system for many months without additional costs in maintaining the system. Most everyone provides some gas or diesel generator option of system. There are enormous functionality differences between them all. Others try to cobble together technologies and as a result provide inefficient and undependable systems. The MPS-3400 was designed from the ground up to be a fully functional true Hybrid and an extremely energy efficient power platform. This system provides effective and reliable power for the various technologies that may be integrated onto it.
Is the portable power solution capable of being remotely monitored and controlled, allowing time saving, system management from afar?
Typically these systems are going to be remote to some degree where you need to know everything from the charge status of batteries to the GPS location of the system. The Commander Series systems are the only systems that include a fully embedded Status Monitor and Remote Con trol. This functionality is embedded into the ’s Com- mander 3400 System allowing statuses such as:
Battery Voltage Battery & System Current GPS Location Enclosure Temperature Solar Power Production Wind Power Production
Along With: 2-8 input statuses (motion detection, door tamper, moment detectors) and can control up to 8 control relays for lights, camera power, and any other device. All from a web page that displays all of your resources under one list.
Are technologies going to change over the next 20 years? And if so, is my selection going to provide the best return on investment ?
The solutions are designed to be ready for various options whether they are included at the time of the order or at a later date as new technologies arrive on the market. The trailer solutions have a potential life usefulness of up to 20 years (Batteries excluded). The ability to update the system to see maximum ROI is a key. The systems are well thought out allowing for options such as local area lighting, 2 way audio, backup & alternate communications such as mesh and WiMax, new or old camera technologies, various types of signage, motion detectors and many more. The power platforms are commonly pre-cabled for most of these technologies. Others provide solutions that are specific to the original order and if they can even accomplish it, they need to be factory modified at great expense that usually ends the possibilities of upgrading at all.
Is the solution you are considering designed for simple and efficient service and maintenance and supported by people that understand the importance of long term, customer support?
takes the ‘after the sale’ assistance very seriously. We strive to insure that your questions are answered and that your systems are operating correctly. has put forth considerable efforts toward designing systems that are easy to use, expandable with plug-n-play functions and designed for the ease of service and maintenance in the years to come…
