A local Recycling Site asked us to assist them with the replacement and relocation of an existing Weighbridge. In addition, a new Weighbridge Office was required to facilitate the new systems.
Phase one involved connecting the new Weighbridge office to the existing infrastructure, these services including Server/Internet Connectivity, Telecommunications (Additional Telephones), CCTV Provision.
A new unground route was installed which allowed us to pull through 1 Fibre optic and multiple cat5e shielded cables. The fibre optic cable was to used primarily for the network connectivity between the new office and main building, Fibre optic cables are far more reliable and suffer from less external interference. The weight bridge software required very reliable connectivity to the database therefore fibre was obvious choice. As the CCTV and Telecommunications is not as critical these services use the cat5e cables to provide an addition Registration Camera, CCTV Monitor and PTZ Controls.
Fibre Connectivity was achieved with the use of two Netgear managed switches both installed with a SFP fibre modules at each ends.
