Trailer / Vehicle-based MastsCELL ON WHEELS
Cell on Wheels (COWs) are most suitable for deployment in areas mandating trailer-based masts, such as defence establishments and cantonment areas. Cell On Wheel towers provide a very high-degree of portability, convenience and ease of telecommunications operations.
The Kotkar range of COWs includes a variety of masts, ranging from 15m to 40m, and payloads capacities of 1 operator to 3 operators.
No Special Permits Required:
KED COWs are based on ARAI approved Commercial Semi-Trailers, and as such require no special permissions to operate on roads. Commercially-available prime movers can be hired for transportation.
Quick & easy deployment:
The installation of KED COWs is controlled by a PLC Control Panel and an array of proximity sensors, as well as safety inter-locks to ensure semi-automated, sequential and safe operations. Antennae payload can be mounted on the mast while it’s horizontal, thereby reducing time, energy and resources.
Enhanced safety in all aspects:
Kotkar brand COWs are built with a host of safety features, such as:
- Fall arrester systems to ensure the safety of technicians while working at heights
- Mechanical interlocks to secure the mast in erected and retracted positions
- Electronic Overload Relays
Irreversible gear boxes, and electro-magnetic motor brakes
Dual-redundant wire ropes for additional safety
The complete trailer and tower segments are hot dip galvanised, with teflon-coated, non-maintenance bushes for pivots. In addition, various mast sub-systems are designed to be virtually maintenance-free.
