Carmanah solar power technology is helping to extend the reach of wireless data communications beyond the electric grid. Encom Wireless Data Solutions, a leading provider of spread spectrum wireless communications systems, is using Carmanah's remote solar electric technology to power a traffic communications application in Alberta, Canada.

Installed in an area known for its harsh winter weather, Carmanah's solar power technology was chosen for its rugged durability, and its proven ability to function reliably, even in extreme winter conditions.

After a quick and easy install, Carmanah's stand-alone solar power systems are immediately operational, ready to provide a reliable source of high-quality power wherever its needed.

In addition to powering wireless data communications, Carmanah's solar power systems are also widely used to power a variety of Intelligent Transportation System (ITS) applications, such as video vehicle-detection systems and sensing technologies.
