DCRS provides wide area two site Mototrbo system to RG Abrey Farms

RG Abrey Farms, an East Anglian fresh produce company, that grows more than 100,000 tonnes of root vegetables a year, has opted for a Mototrbo system from DCRS to provide wide area coverage and connect its two sites, Wretham and Euston Estates, which are 14 kilometres apart.

The company’s analogue radio equipment had been declining for some time and could not withstand the impact of day to day working life on the farms, with users experiencing unreliable coverage in varying terrains and buildings. Wretham covers nearly 6,000 acres, while Euston Estate covers 10,500. The company also needed to ensure compliance with health and safety laws, given its more than 50 full-time employees and additional seasonal workers. RG Abrey Farms also required a communications system that could also boost its efficiency and productivity.

Once all RG Abrey Farms’ requirements had been clarified, DCRS’s engineering team performed radio propagation tests to check the coverage for each radio site, and gathered information on the achievable range, coverage, and grade of service. The antenna type, height, tilt and clearance for each radio site was also verified to ensure compliance with Ofcom regulations. Based on its findings, DCRS recommended a Mototrbo Digital Repeater IP Site Connect Solution.
