An Emergency telephone is basically a telephone installation. The Phone is for making calls to emergency services to ask for help. It is mostly required in a place of special danger or isolated places. E.g. in parks, in the woods, on the beach and at the highway. At the majority of these places there will not be any connection for power supply, it lend itself to consider a solar power plant for a stand-alone power supply.
The supply of the emergency telephone with solar power is a fulsome technology and is often already being implemented. Well-known manufacturers offer suitable emergency telephones. For the power supply of the emergency telephones SOLARA solar panels are often used, as SOLARA produces absolutely reliable, robust and long-living solar panels. For example, the SOLARA M-series, without glass cover, is ideal for public areas, as glass damage due to vandalism is excluded. The emergency telephone also operated with solar power is technically a so-called “special means of communication”. Modern emergency telephones are connected via ISDN, IP-telephony (Ethernet) or GSM with an emergency call center or making contact with them if necessary.
New emergency telephones also transmit the location of the telephone through the call. With solar power a so-called polling, the accessibility of the emergency telephone can be checked.
Polling is a regular request for the functionality of the emergency telephone and the solar power supply. The current emergency telephones are usually equipped with an automatic function-control. The emergency telephones check themselves, as well as the speaker and the microphone. The amplification is set automatically and adapted itself to the environment. Signals or lights on the, emergency call button and the emergency telephone are always supplied with reliable solar power in every season.
Wherever there is neither a power connection nor a fixed line telephone network, the emergency call is made on GSM-basis. This is no longer a temporary solution on construction sites and in remote regions. Solar power with solar power plants from SOLARA is ideal for GSM-emergency telephones.
More and more emergency telephones are equipped with voice-over-IP-technology nowadays. The relatively high energy requirements of VoIP-emergency telephones or of the network components can be perfectly covered by the solar technology from SOLARA.
In conclusion, with SOLARA’s solar panels emergency telephones can also be reliably operated away from highways and urban areas without a power and telephone cable connection. In addition, nowadays the solar power supply is cheaper than a power connection and it does not incur any basic charges and power consumption costs.
