The Future of Power

Here’s how we’re perpetually innovating the product category

The countdown to ASIS 2016 in Orlando (September 12 through 14) is on! We’ll have lots of innovation to talk about at the industry’s premier security conference and exhibition. At the show, LifeSafety Power® will highlight new, exciting networking features, partnerships, integrations and expanded product capabilities. Until then, we want to revisit some of the excitement that’s been going on over the last months, like the release of the award-winning FlexPower® Gemini RGM power management system.

The state of systems integration

Footprints and real estate in data centers and customer sites can be a challenge, especially as these spaces may be extremely tight. They may even be located in a small electrical closet or similar constricted location. It’s this world of IT that we have to co-exist in today, and we’re getting the job done in a big way with the compact Gemini.

Gemini RGM is designed specifically for small footprints and is a 19-inch rack mount product that provides both operating power and mechanical housing for Authentic Mercury Security access control hardware. This enclosure is totally ground breaking: it combines system power, lock power and remote power options in a UL-listed (U.S. and Canada) enclosure. The breakthrough is in the UL-listing garnered for all integrated components within the enclosure, allowing systems integrators to have a fully compliant, turnkey solution suitable for four doors and easily expandable in four-door increments. Now, systems installers have the availability of an IT-centric solution that’s fully listed and allows them to specify power for a variety of vertical market customers and facilities they may not have been able to reach before.

Gemini received a Most Valuable Product (MVP) award in April 2016 from Security Sales & Integration magazine. It’s the first and only solution of its kind on the market with the listings, compact design and integrated technologies inside. It’s also an affirmative nod to managed services for systems integrators. When deployed with LifeSafety Power network communication modules, integrators can remotely monitor power to both Mercury panels and locks to provide proactive managed services to customers while adding recurring monthly revenue. 

LifeSafety Power prides itself on continually evolving the product category – from static device to network centric solution – in an effort to meet new and emerging product needs of the installation and end-user communities. So stay tuned and see us at ASIS, booth 3461. Contact LifeSafety Power today for an ASIS appointment or more information on your next progressive power installation.

Now in its impressive 61st year, ASIS Seminar & Exhibits runs September 28 through 30 in Anaheim Calif. The ‘new age’ of power will be there, showcased at LifeSafety Power® booth 3515.

The new and expanded line of FlexPower® Unified Power Solutions will be highlighted during the show. This innovative enclosure family integrates the industry’s most widely used access controller board power solutions, including Mercury, AMAG Technology and Software House. Unified Power Solutions take up a much smaller footprint while providing new installation opportunities for integrators. And that means costs savings and many other efficiencies for the end-user customer.

There’s even bigger news to share: we’re ready to unveil to the industry the first Mercury Security and LifeSafety Power UL-Listed system. We partnered with Mercury Security to bring to the systems integration and end-user communities one of the first UL-Listed enclosures that includes system power, lock power and remote power options in both rack mount and wall mount configurations. The breakthrough is in the UL listing garnered for the complete range of integrated components within the solution. The two specific products include the FlexPower Gemini RGM series, a rack mount product, and MCLASS Unified Power system, both with Authentic Mercury access control hardware in one compact, secure design.

The Gemini RGM rack mount enclosure is configured to save space and provide installation efficiencies. MCLASS also simplifies wiring and labor, saving the expense of mounting and wiring separate enclosures and AC drops for lock power, while reducing wall space with a smaller enclosure footprint.

More new products

Also at the show, check out the new IP Saver™ a custom appliance product family that utilizes a single LAN IP address to service up to 20 NetLink® communication module drops. NetLink is the industry’s only patented network power management system.

Finally, we’ll have a sneak peek and literature on more new developments – the 16-door Mercury E8V1 and the 16-door HID VertX E8V – ready to meet access control specifications of every size.

The product development wheels never stop turning at LifeSafety Power and we’re proud to show you some of the results of our innovative design and engineering at ASIS. Stop by to see why LifeSafety Power is the leader in Smarter Power Solutions and remote monitoring capabilities with modular power systems that continue to meet the growing needs of the life safety and security industries.
