Sunstone Systems powers green security

October 16, 2023


Sunstone Systems has announced the launch of the Rapid Autonomous Frontier Technology (RAFT) System, which in addition to providing surveillance and security is also a renewable energy hub.

Designed to excel where traditional power sources fail, this rugged and off-grid power solution integrates IoT devices, renewable energy, and connectivity, making it “indispensable” for extreme and hostile environments.

In addition to providing surveillance and security; it’s also a renewable energy hub. In locations where power sources are scarce or unreliable, the RAFT System steps in as a solution, delivering clean and reliable off-grid power to a wide range of IoT devices, including:

  • Oil & Gas Industry: Providing power for surveillance cameras, gas detection and communication systems for monitoring pipelines, wellheads, and refineries in remote and rugged environments.
  • Rail Industry: Ensuring uninterrupted power for signalling, communications, and safety systems along rail lines, enhancing safety and efficiency.
  • Highways and Infrastructure: Powering traffic management systems, ANPR, and electronic signage for real-time updates, improving safety and traffic management.
  • Construction Sites: Delivering clean power to security cameras, and communication systems, enabling efficient project management and site security.
  • Security and Surveillance: Enhancing situational awareness with surveillance cameras, radar systems, and IoT Sensors for proactive security measures.
  • Telecommunications: Ensuring clean and reliable power for cell towers, remote base stations, and communications equipment, enabling uninterrupted communication services, even in remote locations.

Sunstone Systems describes RAFT’s key features and benefits:

  • Extreme Durability: The RAFT System’s rugged design is built to withstand harsh conditions, making it suitable for challenging environments.
  • QuickGrid Integration: Seamlessly integrate our solar array, QuickGrid, for increased power capacity and energy efficiency.
  • Centralised Control: All system control equipment is conveniently located in one cabinet, simplifying management.
  • CO2 Savings: Incorporating a 2.4KW solar array for significant CO2e reduction.
  • Wide Temperature Range: Operates from -40°C to +50°C.
  • IP-Rated Protection: Guards against dust and moisture for uninterrupted operation.

Paul Schelhaas, CEO Sunstone Systems said: “I am thrilled to introduce the RAFT System, a new innovation that will redefine how we harness power and IoT capabilities in remote and challenging environments. We are committed to pushing the boundaries of technology, and the RAFT System is a testament to our dedication to delivering unmatched innovation and reliability. With its unique blend of renewable energy, smart devices, and connectivity, the RAFT System is set to revolutionise multiple industries and make a significant impact on the way we operate in extreme conditions.”
