Spurious Challenge 2019

The Spurious Challenge took sail around Sydney Harbour for its 30th year! Sponsored by RFI, Spurious Challenge is an annual sailing event for the NSW Radio Communications industry giving us a chance to rub shoulders with the industry and customers, share a few beverages and try and bring home the coveted Spurious Challenge Shield.

Congratulations to this year’s winners – Karera Communications

While we all have plenty of fun – we also gather to raise money for charity.  This year the industry dug deep and raised over $5,500 for the Salvos! Thanks to all and see you next year!

Tight Buffered Fibre Cable & PULSE Fibre Fast Connector have arrived at RFI

Tight Buffered Fibre Cable has arrived at RFI

Offering the durability you expect from OCC, DZ-series distribution cables provide all of the indispensable elements needed for Indoor and Indoor/Outdoor commercial applications, while providing great value. Manufactured with Indoor/Outdoor grade Flame Retardant PVC for riser applications.

Features

Cost Savings

  • 900 µm buffer eliminates the need for costly and time-consuming installation of fanout kits or pigtail splices because connectors terminate directly to the fiber
  • No need to splice outdoor cable to indoor cable at building entrance

PULSE Fibre Fast Connector at RFI

On-site installations, quick & easy

The PULSE Fibre Fast Connector is a pre-polished, pre-assembled connector compatible with standard SC and LC connectors. No epoxy is required as an internal mechanical grip effectively holds the fibre in place and can be installed in about 100 seconds.

Without polishing or adhesives, the PULSE fast connector makes on-site installations quick and easy, diminishing the need for epoxy curing and hand polishing at the work site.

Launching the Sunny Boy Storage 5

Join RFI Product Manager Owen Fulton as he introduces the key features and benefits of the Sunny Boy Storage 5.0!

With the SUNNY BOY STORAGE multi-string battery inverter, for the first time, up to three different high-voltage batteries can be connected to one battery inverter. To connect larger batteries, three DC inputs can also be connected in parallel.

The Sunny Boy Storage has integrated emergency power, which can be switched manually. Furthermore, it can even take over the entire electricity supply of the three line conductors via the optional automatic transfer unit.

Thanks to proven AC coupling, the Sunny Boy Storage is ideally suited to new and retrofitted systems. The integrated web server enables fast and easy commissioning, which is also possible via smartphone or laptop.

Energy flows in the household are fully transparent thanks to the direct connection to Sunny Portal and Sunny Places.
