This tutorial is the second of a two-part series on the challenges of installing instrumentation outside in the wild. The variety of physical, chemical, and biological assaults that can occur is quite amazing. The first part introduced problems with physical extremes and attacks by insects, animals, and human beings. In this part, we follow up with solutions for: environment-appropriate packaging; cables and connectors; electromagnetic compatibility (EMC); conditions that may apply to mechanical movement of the system; some aspects of power and cooling which include batteries, other energy sources and energy storage, types of power distribution and a few case studies; installation of the system; operation of the system; maintenance; disposal; and cost considerations.
