Altronix Thermal Imaging for Fire Fighters(2)
The Altronix AL1042ULADA is an extremely cost effective 10 amp remote power supply/battery charger. It may be connected to any 12 or 24 volt Fire Alarm Control Panel (FACP). Primary applications include Notification Appliance Circuit (NAC such as strobes and horns) expansion support to meet ADA requirements. It also provides auxiliary power to support system accessories. The unit delivers electronically regulated and filtered 24 volt power to Class B, Style W, Y or Class A, Style Z NAC loop circuits. Additionally, a separate 1 amp auxiliary output for 4-wire smoke detectors is available. The 10 amp max. alarm current can be divided between the four (4) outputs for powering NAC devices. Each output is rated at 2.5 amp max., and can be independently programmed for Steady, Temporal Code 3 or Strobe Synchronization. All outputs may be programmed for Input to Output Follower Mode (output will follow input. i.e. March Time Input, March Time Output). In non-alarm condition independent loop supervision for Class A, Style Z and/or Class B, Style W, Y FACP NAC circuits is provided. In the event of a loop trouble, the FACP will be notified via the steered input (input 1 or input 2). In addition, there are common trouble output terminals [NC, C, NO] which are used to indicate general loop/system trouble. A common trouble input is provided for optional [NC] (normally closed) devices to report trouble to the FACP. Two (2) FACP signaling outputs can be employed and directed to control supervision and power delivery to any combination of the four (4) outputs.Add to Compare

Altronix’s new models offer more flexibility via their multiple outputs to accommodate a broader range of system designs Altronix now offers more eFlow power supply/chargers to choose from with 4, 8 and 16 outputs. These new models add to the company’s growing line of eFlow enhanced power solutions with more features designed for security, fire and access control applications. “eFlow power solutions provide more of what the market is asking for – more functionality with key features for system integration,” said Alan Forman, President, Altronix. “These models offer more flexibility via their multiple outputs to accommodate a broader range of system designs. “ Key features include built-in fire alarm disconnect, over voltage protection to help prevent equipment damage, low power cutoff to protect stand-by batteries, and more. eFlow is ULlisted in the U.S. for access control, burglar alarm and fire protective signaling systems, and in Canada for burglar and access control systems. Plus, eFlow is CE listed for European conformity.
Altronix supplies power for surveillance and security applications in NYC public school district As one of the primary system integrators responsible for keeping New York City Public Schools’ security and surveillance systems updated and running at peak performance, Kevin Tomlinson, CFO, Champion Alarm Systems, Ltd. of Farmingdale, NY is also responsible for synchronizing the schools’ clock systems to ensure schedules stay on track and in sync with one another. But as budgets have become tighter and competition fiercer, Mr. Tomlinson is continually looking for ways to improve efficiencies and performance to retain his company’s competitive edge. The clocks provided by Champion Alarm Systems throughout the massive NYC public school district are configured into a self-corrective system controlled by a master clock. All the clocks are wired back to a master clock where they are connected to a master power supply. Approximately two years ago, Mr. Tomlinson started looking for a more cost-effective way to power the system as the cost of the clock manufacturer’s power supply pricing continued to escalate. So he went on the hunt for an alternate power supply that could provide a highly reliable seamless replacement at a more affordable price point. Having deployed a wide variety of Altronix power supplies for surveillance and security applications both in the NYC public school district and numerous other venues, Champion’s technical team looked at the company’s portfolio of AC power supplies for a possible solution and found what they were looking for at a fraction of the cost. “We use Altronix for all of our clock systems,” said Mr. Tomlinson. “Early on, we were using Altronix rack mount AC power supplies which actually made installations easier because of the way the connectors were laid out. We later switched to a wall mount model – the ALTV2416350 – a 16 fused output, 14 amp model that provides the solution at a great price. The savings over the clock manufacturer’s power supply is greater than 50%, which equates to a great savings with a lifetime warranty to boot when you’re looking at 1400 schools.” “Champion technicians are in the NYC schools a few days a week servicing and maintaining various systems, and it’s important that the products we deploy not only meet budget, but they also operate consistently and without compromise. Altronix products meet all those criteria, even when used for clocks,” concluded Mr. Tomlinson.
The new Altronix website tool offers easy access to locate and compare products on the website Altronix, the leading manufacturer of low voltage power supplies and transmission solutions for professional security applications, has added an innovative new tool to the company’s website (www.altronix.com) that enables users to quickly and easily find and compare the products they need. This tool provides a great way to compare the features and specifications of Altronix products. “Easy access to locating and comparing products provides a unique and valuable tool for system designers and installing dealers to help ensure they select the best products for their specific application,” said Alan Forman, President, Altronix. “These versatile new website additions enable users to more readily find, evaluate and compare the Altronix products they need.” Comparing Altronix products couldn’t be easier. From the Altronix home page (www.altronix.com), click on “Product Finder” prominently featured on the top of page, and then select the product category of interest. Next, select a specific model from the list and then check the box next to the product image labeled “add to compare”. Up to 6 products can be selected per matrix. Then simply click on “compare” and the comparison matrix appears. The compiled information can be saved as a PDF or printed for future reference. It’s fast and easy. In addition to the new product finder and comparison tool, Altronix’s website offers a helpful Tech Tools page with useful tips, application notes and a calculator for determining voltage drops, power and battery requirements.
