Remote Booster Power Supplies Expands Power to NACs


The Remote Booster Power Supply is a self-contained 24V DC power supply designed to augment fire alarm audible and visual power requirements. The booster contains all of the necessary circuits to monitor and charge batteries, control and supervise four Class B or two Class A Notification Appliance Circuits (NACs) and monitor two controlling inputs from external sources.

  • 10 amp and 6.5 amp models

  • Includes four independent 3 amp NACs - two

  • configurable as auxiliary outputs

  • Configurable signal rates

  • Field selectable input-to-output correlations

  • NACs configure for either four Class B or two Class A circuits

  • On-board status LEDs for easy recognition of wiring faults

Provides ample space for additional GenesisTM interface modules and battery compartment.

Fault conditions detected by the BPS will open the main panel's NAC.

EBPS notification appliance circuits easily configure for any one of three signaling rates: 120 SPM, 3-3-3 temporal, or continuous.

In addition to the three generated signal rates, the EBPS can also be configured to follow the signal rate of the main panel's notification appliance circuit.

The EBPS includes seven on-board LED indicators: one for each resident NAC; one for battery supervision; one for ground fault; and one, for AC power. The trouble contact has a sixteen second delay when an AC power failure or brownout condition is detected, reducing the reporting of troubles during short duration AC brownouts.

NAC configuration options include: AC power fail delay; sensing input to NAC output correlations; and auxiliary outputs. NAC 3 and 4 are configurable as auxiliary outputs. Auxiliary outputs can be on or off after 30 seconds without AC power. Jumpers configure the BPS for Class A or Class B wiring.
