Our favs in review

Whether you are a LifeSafety Power aficionado or new to the line of patented, customizable, networked power solutions, we want to keep you up to speed with all the information you need for an effective design-build specification. So we’ve assembled a list of our top seven technical tips that may be just what you need to spark a new idea or address a customer’s challenge in the healthcare, government, education, corporate or other vertical markets.

We make it easy for you to customize the perfect system. Our solutions are based on what integrators need in the field and the current challenges of their end-user customer. We’re not just hawking static hardware; we are changing the power category with intelligent, networked devices that yield critical enterprise data.  We are thinking of the future of connectivity and the Internet of Things in all our recent innovations. For example, the NetLink™ remote monitoring network communications module has been tested and received independent accreditation as meeting effective cybersecurity criteria in networking communications processes and protocols.

Top 7 Tech Tips

1 FlexPower® Unified Power Solutions are factory set to 12V (unless a B100 is installed) to protect devices from accidental exposure to 24V.

2 Accidentally order a single voltage system but need both 12V and 24V? Simply adding a B100 will get you out of the jam. The B100 only requires a low voltage input (no high-voltage AC wiring) and can be added to the end of the accessory board chain with plug-in connectors. For more information, see the B100 application note.

3 Want to send an SMS text message from a NetLink network communications module? This new Application note shows you how.

4 Did you know that firmware updates are available on our website for NetLink, Multi-Site Manager and NetPower® NPR Series? Updates may also include new features or cybersecurity improvements. You can find downloads here.

5 Want a convenient and easy way to remember output voltage settings on accessory boards? The top power supply in a dual FPO system is always Buss 1 and the bottom FPO is always Buss 2. That means position 1 on the voltage setting jumpers of the C8 and D8 boards select the top power supply and position 2 selects the bottom supply.

6 Did you know our DC and power over Ethernet products will operate on a 208VAC line when configured for 230VAC?

7 We make it easy to find replacements with ATM-style fuses. Traditional glass fuses are becoming difficult to find locally, but the ATM automotive miniature fuses used in LSP products can be purchased at auto parts stores, big box retailers and sometimes the local grocer. In addition, we offer quantities of replacement fuses to stock up the tool box.
