Tarantula Trailer System

The Tarantula is the ideal system for large surveillance operations. It has a large volume available for system components and easy access through its four side-loading doors and one rear door, which make this system both easy to operate and to maintain. The Tarantula can also accommodate a satellite dish system of up to 1800 mm which can be mounted on top of the rear generator bin. It also comes with inner and outer tubing stiffeners which are ideal protection against strong wind forces which are sometimes generated when satellite dishes are deployed.

The Tarantula accommodates all electronic equipment in vibration-dampened 19" rack mount-type systems and provides cooling air from either an air conditioner or forced air flow from DC fans, depending on the requirement. The Tarantula also has the front mast tilting mechanism which makes the attachment of sensors on the mast an easy task.

The Tarantula comes equipped with a solar-powered system and a 4.5 KV diesel generator with a 400 amp per hour battery back-up system. With the 1200 watt full sine wave inverter, the user is assured of reliable and clean 220 V AC power when needed. The diesel generator can be controlled from a remote control centre and can be started as and when needed to top up the battery bank. 

The Tarantula comes standard with an extra large single electronics bin with nose cone storage bin, four side loading doors and one rear door, 80 litre diesel tank, with four stabiliser adjustable feet, spiked sand plates and a rear swing-out spare wheel carrier.
