Overview
The Booster Power Supply (BPS) is a UL 864, 9th Edition listed
power supply. It is a 24 Vdc filtered-regulated, and supervised
unit that can easily be configured to provide additional notification
appliance circuits (NACs) or auxiliary power for Mass Notification/
Emergency Communication (MNEC), as well as life safety, security,
and access control applications.
The BPS contains the circuitry to monitor and charge internal
or external batteries. Its steel enclosure has room for up to two
10 ampere-hour batteries. For access control-only applications,
the BPS can support batteries totaling up to 65 ampere-hours in
an external enclosure. The BPS has four Class B (convertible to
two Class A) NACs. These can be activated in one or two groups
from the BPS’s unique dual input circuits.
The BPS is available in 6.5 or 10 ampere models. Each output
circuit has a capacity of three amperes; total current draw cannot
exceed the unit’s rating.
The BPS meets current UL requirements and is listed under the
following standards:
