The new Tote Caddie series from Joseph Electronics offers a better option for fast, operator-deployed point-to-point signal transport. Built into rugged Pelican™ cases, Caddies create a compact and weather-resistant fiber solution for news and field crews working in any environment.
The Tote Caddies are designed to be customized, with more than twelve modules available that can be mixed and matched to provide the exact signal count required. They are field-configurable, as well.
Power is provided by local AC mains or with an Anton-Bauer battery while an internal, filtered fan ensures that everything stays cool regardless of the weather outside.
The cover can be closed after making connections to reduce exposure to elements. A rain cover is included to further reduce weather exposure. Ethernet connectors come with IP64 covers for moisture and dirt protection.
The Tote Caddies have intercom options that will make communications a breeze. The 2-wire intercom modules work with RTS/Clearcom beltpacks and also provide 30 VDC power. By switching intercom power off, Caddies can also be directly interfaced into an intercom system. The Truck side Caddie can also be outfitted with 4-wire intercom modules to further simplify PL interfacing.
Fiber interconnect options include MX mini, OpticalCon Quad (pictured), Lemo, and ST connectors. If MX or QUAD connectors are selected, the two unutilized fibers can be brought out to the front panel to handle even more signal transport modules, or they can serve as a loop-thru to another, daisy-chained, Tote Caddie system.
