February 25, 2013

Decatur, GA – February 25, 2013 - Moog Inc., a leading designer and manufacturer of innovative surveillance products, introduces an upgraded EcoKit green-energy generator. The new EcoKit offers enhanced system efficiency, allowing a 25% increase in reserve power, and includes a redesigned controller cabinet for simplified installation and system access.

“The EcoKit delivers reliable energy at an attractive price point,” said Jimmy Pfaffenberger, General Manager for Moog Decatur Operations. “We refined the original model, resulting in a ruggedized green power generation system which meets the environmental demands of our customers. It is tailor made for network surveillance camera deployments.”

The EcoKit, designed and assembled in the United States, features:
• A ruggedized body to withstand harsh weather conditions
• Easy to install corrosion-resistant mounting hardware - an ideal solution for humid climates
• Monocrystalline photovoltaic cells in the solar panels which provide superior energy production and offer a life expectancy in excess of 20 years
• A turbine that delivers additional energy to its batteries, day or night
• Redesigned battery box that ships with two batteries capable of storing and delivering 20 watts of uninterrupted power to the surveillance equipment
• A system controller and voltage stabilizer housed in the battery enclosure and positioned for convenient customer interface
• Two fully charged batteries which provide up to five days of power, even in a total blackout situation
• An enclosure designed for installation on poles or walls, with minimal torque on pole footings

The system was installed and tested during Hurricane Sandy, withstanding hurricane-force winds while remaining fully operational. It is fully compatible with Moog poles, camera enclosures, and wireless systems and provides an excellent turnkey solution for most surveillance applications.
