Hughes 9502 Solar Sentry Photos    
Solar Sentry Prewired   Solar Sentry With Sensors
In this solution, the Hughes 9502 is secured inside the all aluminum enclosure, that includes a solar charge controller, a 54 amp hour battery that will keep the 9502 running for 5 days without sunlight for a full-time network connection. Additional batteries may be added.
Here the enclosure shows the installation of a sensor controller with 4 attached sensors, a DC battery voltage monitor, air temperature, air humidity, and a DC power relay to turn on and off a light under the enclosure. More information on Controller & Sensors.
Sensor Monitor Main Screen   Live View Of Solar Sentry
While any SCADA or M2M sensor package may be used, our solution uses the AKCP 4 sensor controller with several attached sensors. This web based interface lets you monitor, and set warning levels for many kinds of sensors. More information on the AKCP controller and sensors.
A Live Demonstration of the Solar Sentry Solution. The above screen is a screenshot from a live video feed used in the demonstration. Please call for more information.
Pole Mount With Concrete   Non-Pen Mount for BGAN
In this installation, a 2" inch (outside diameter) galvanized pole was used with a 40 lbs bag of Quick-Crete. Most any size pole can be used with the solar sentry.
Ground Control offers Non-Penetrating mounting options for systems that are not permanent, or need to be moved from time to time.
M2M Sensors   Solar Sentry Top Package
There are a wide variety of SCADA and M2M sensors that monitor everything from temperature, to fuel level. You can also control remote equipment with AC or DC switches that are activated manually, or triggered by any event, such as temperature from another sensor.
The 20 watt solar panel and the Hughes 9502 antenna use the same mounting brackets.
Hughes 9502 Antenna On Mounting Bracket   Solar Panel 20 Watt
The Hughes 9502 antenna connect with a single, low-impendence cable with TNC connectors. Pointing the antenna only requires a set of headphones.
In this installation, the 20 watt solar panel from BP is premium grade construction, and is rated to operate with Oil-and-Gas standards. Up to 390 watt solutions are available.
Solar Sentry Enclosure   Solar Sentry Lock
The all aluminum enclosure will withstand the elements.
  The lock on the side of the enclosure.
Enclosure Weather and Insect Protected   Light Under Enclosure
Looking from the inside of the enclosure door, all vents are screen protected from insects. Also note the neoprene gasket that lines the front of the door for a tight weather seal.
On this installation, a light has been installed under the enclosure and can be activated by sensor limits (such as low temperature warnings), or motion detection, or manually over the Internet.
Hughes 9502 One-Piece holding in hand   Hughes 9502 One-Piece Bottom View
The Hughes 9502 One-Piece Terminal is excellent for locations that may not require an enclosure for remote equipment. (The Hughes 9502 standard system requires an enclosure).
The One-Piece places the Hughes 9502 terminal inside of a milled aluminum case with two caps on both ends to access the terminal controls. Removing the caps requires only a screwdriver with the four screw-bolts. These caps lock in place using the bar/plate (shown on top).
