One of Elite’s customers who are primarily involved with the renewable energy sector, has had ongoing issues relating to damage caused by rodents and subsequent broken cables. The issue primarily affected communications between separate control systems that were located within two different industrial buildings. The control systems needed to transmit certain information between each other, and this meant a total of 6 signals, (2 analogue and 4 digital) were required to be linked between the two locations.

The Elite proposed solution was to incorporate the use of radio transmitters for use with wireless communication. A brief feasibility study took place, after which the Tx and Rx were integrated for use within the clients existing SCADA system.

The primary benefit for the customer is a secure, modern, and effective data transmission system that removes the issue of rodent related damage, and various harsh environmental factors that were causing damage to their cable installations.
