The outdoor version of PlaneSight is designed to be deployed at remote sites where no power is available nor wireline connectivity. PlaneSight Solar is completely self-contained using photovoltaic panels, battery (20 Ah LiFePO4) and a cellular modem supporting all 2G/3G frequency bands allowing for true global coverage.
PlaneSight Solar is thrifty with resources. Based on user-defined business rules, the device may reduce the frequency of data transmission to save energy and data transfer costs. During silent periods, the RF-unit may also be switched off to save energy further. These features are very useful to ensure continuous data transmissions (but slightly less frequent) during periods with limited sun exposure.
