UPS Battery Expansion for RTUs

UPS Expansion
Give your monitoring system true power independence with the UPS Expansion.

Your remote monitoring system must have adequate battery backup. You may be thinking, "But I alrady have battery plants at my remote sites." Whether you do or not, you really need to have a dedicated UPS battery just for your alarm remote to make sure that it can continue running no matter what happens with the power at your site. Of course, you may already know that one DPS RTU, the NetDog 82 BW, already has a built-in UPS battery. The trouble used to be that the NetDog didn't always have the right capacities and feature set for every monitoring situation. What was needed was a simple, 1 RU shelf that would contain batteries and power any DPS RTU that you plugged into it.

That's exactly why the UPS expansion has been created. This device can be used with any DPS RTU to provide over 2 days worth of battery life. With the UPS Expansion you can give yourself a truly reliable and independent monitoring solution.
