FPRA Flexi Power Rectifier Overview

FPRA has the same conceptual approach like any Flexi BTS platform

3U high chassis build up from IP54 building blocks (rectifier and controller)
Final IP55 protection achieved with front and rear covers (same covers as used
with FlexiBTS)
Same FPRA unit used both indoor and outdoor environments
Indoor and any outdoor cabinet installations without front/rear covers
Outdoor stand alone installations (wall/pole/stack) with front/rear covers mounted
Back to Front airflow like on FlexiBTS modules

common solution for any existing or new BTS platforms
equal to Flexi BTS module in terms of dimensions and weight supporting Flexi
platform modularity
Same fixing points, same mounting options

No special system specific SW needed

Only web browser needed for local connection to make the commissioning
