Energy meters: Ventev Wireless Infrastructure, a division of TESSCO Technologies Inc., announces Ventev’s Wireless Solutions Saddle Bracket designed specifically for the leading radios used in smart meter upgrades. The new mount was engineered for, and field-tested by, major utilities for efficient, cost-saving and uniform deployments of radios used in smart meter upgrades across the country.

The Saddle Bracket’s adjustable “saddle” design fits over existing poles with diameters up to 2 3/4 inches to co-locate components such as a battery and antenna with the radio. The bracket is also available to purchase with the pole included. A slotted mounting plate enables precise equipment installation for optimum coverage. Constructed of durable, rust- and weather-resistant aluminum with Iridite coating, it is suitable for deployment in even the harshest environments. The bracket includes pre-drilled holes for grounding lugs to reduce installation time, and a carriage bolt for increased stability.

The Ventev Saddle Bracket was originally custom-designed for a major utility company performing smart meter upgrades throughout the Northeast U.S. “We received excellent feedback from that deployment,” says Jeff Lime, Vice President of Ventev Wireless Infrastructure. “The ability to co-locate all the components needed with the radio facilitated efficient, cost-saving and uniform deployments. As a result, we developed a universal, off-the-shelf Saddle Bracket for use by all utility companies.”

Ventev Wireless Infrastructure engineers and manufactures hundreds of mounting solutions for deploying radios used in Utility environments.

Ventev Wireless Infrastructure, a division of TESSCO Technologies Inc., designs and manufactures solutions that deploy, protect, power, and improve the performance of indoor and outdoor Wi-Fi, DAS (distributed antenna systems), cellular, mesh and two-way networks. Ventev Wireless Infrastructure's three product lines are: TerraWave Solutions® (Wi-Fi enclosures, antennas and cable assemblies); Ventev® (integrated power and outdoor enclosure solutions); and Wireless Solutions® (base station infrastructure including towers, site hardware and grounding).
