masanory

1

At the start of the construction phase the dish is mounted on a Non-Penetrating Mount with 8 concrete blocks, usually on top of the Site Manager’s cabin or at the side.

In these examples a 6” (15cm) high galvanised bracket with 9” (23cm) arms is secured to the container securing lug using a custom made stainless steel back plate and 2 stainless steel bolts and nuts. A 12’ (3.6m) x 2” (50mm) galvanised steel pole is fitted to the brackets, which can be reduced in height as appropriate. To prevent sideways movement of the pole a short horizontal bracket is fitted.

third masanory

3

In this example 3 x 6” (15cm) high galvanised brackets with 9” (23cm) arms are secured to the container wall using custom made stainless steel back plates and 4 stainless steel bolts and nuts per bracket. A 12’ (3.6m) x 2” (50mm) galvanised steel pole is fitted to the brackets, which can be reduced in height as appropriate. To prevent sideways movement of the pole a short horizontal bracket is fitted.

This is an example of a stainless steel back plate.

five masanory

5

In this example 2 x 9” (23cm) high painted brackets with 9” (23cm) arms are secured to the container wall using custom made stainless steel back plates and 4 stainless steel bolts and nuts per bracket. A 12’ (3.6m) x 2” (50mm) galvanised steel pole is fitted to the brackets, which can be reduced in height as appropriate.

six masanory

6

In this example the satellite dish is fitted to the standard wall mounting bracket supported by 2 adjustable struts. Rubber grommets are fitted into the holes and stainless steel bolts and nuts are used to secure the bracketry to the cabin wall.

seven masanory

7

In this example the satellite dish is fitted to the standard wall mounting bracket supported by 2 adjustable struts. Galvanised M8 coach bolts and plastic rawplugs are used to secure the bracketry to the cabin wall.

eight masanory

8

In this example the satellite dish is fitted to the standard wall mounting bracket supported by 2 adjustable struts. Rubber grommets are fitted into the holes and stainless steel bolts and nuts are used to secure the bracketry to the cabin wall. If the walls are made of Fibreglass (GRP) then it will be necessary to fit a sheet of 10mm thick plywood on the inside to provide additional strength.

nine masanory

9

In this example the satellite dish is fitted to the standard wall mounting bracket supported by 2 adjustable struts. Stainless steel bolts and nuts are used to secure the bracketry to the cabin wall.

ten masanory

10

In this example the satellite dish is fitted to the Non-Penetrating Mount (NPM), with the standard 4’ 7” (1.4m) pole reduced in height to improve stability together with 8 concrete blocks. The benefit of this method is that planning permission is not required as it is not considered a fixed structure.

eleven masanory

11

In this example the satellite dish is fitted to the standard wall mounting bracket supported by 2 adjustable struts. Galvanised M8 coach bolts and plastic rawplugs are used to secure the bracketry to the cabin wall.

twelve masanory

12

In this example the satellite dish is fitted to a custom made 14’ 9” (4.5m) painted steel hollow pole mounted onto a concrete base. Cables for the weather station and Satellite Dish are fed into the base of the pole via underground conduit. Delivery is approximately 3 weeks.

WiFi Bridge A WiFi Bridge is a very cost effective and efficient method of overcoming the difficulties of laying fibre around a solar farm to provide reliable network connections. Installed alongside a satellite broadband system the WiFi Bridge enables an internet connection to be available to any specific location. The standard solution is designed to operate up to 2Kms between dishes.
