GE Security GEC-EBPS10A Fire Alarm System Booster Power Supply 10A Red Enclosure


Our Price : $383.19

Product Code: GEC-EBPS10A


The Booster Power Supply (EBPS) 864, 9th Edition listed power supply. A 24 Vdc filtered-regulated, and supervised unit that can easily be configured to provide additional notification appliance circuits (NACs) or auxiliary power for Mass Notification/ Emergency Communication (MNEC), as well as life safety, security, and access control applications. The EBPS contains the circuitry to monitor and charge internal or external batteries. Its steel enclosure has room for up to two 10 ampere-hour batteries. For access control-only applications, the EBPS can support batteries totaling to 65 ampere-hours in an external enclosure. The EBPS has four Class B (convertible to two Class A) NACs. These can be activated in one or two groups from the EBPS's unique dual input circuits. The EBPS is available or 10 ampere models. Each output circuit has a capacity of three amperes; total current draw cannot exceed the unit's rating. The EBPS meets current UL requirements and is listed under the following standards:

The EBPS provides additional power and circuits for notification appliances and other 24 Vdc loads. It is listed for indoor dry locations and can easily be installed where needed. Fault conditions are indicated on the on-board diagnostic LEDs, opening the EBPS input sense circuit and the trouble relay (if programmed). While this provides indication to the host system, the EBPS can still be activated upon command. A separate AC Fail contact is available on the EBPS circuit board, which can be programmed for trouble or AC Fail. There are seven on-board diagnostic LEDs: one for each NAC fault, one for battery fault, one for ground fault, and one for AC power. The unique dual-input activation circuits of the EBPS can be activated by any voltage from to 45 VDC (filtered-regulated) to 33 Vdc (full-wave rectified, unfiltered). The first input circuit can be configured to activate 1-4 of the four possible outputs. The second input circuit can be configured to control circuits 3 and 4. When outputs are configured for auxiliary operation, these circuits can be configured to stay on or automatically deactivate 30 seconds after AC power is lost. This feature makes these circuits ideal for door holder applications. The EBPS also has a separate mA 24 Vdc output that can be used to power internal activation modules. EBPS NACs can be configured for a 3-3-3 temporal or continuous output. California temporal rate outputs are also available on certain models. This makes the EBPS ideal for applications requiring signaling rates that are not available from the main system. In addition to the internally generated signal rates, the EBPS can also be configured to follow the coded signal rate of the main system NACs. This allows for the seamless expansion of existing NACs. The EBPS enclosure has mounting brackets for up to three Signature modules to the right of the circuit board.

Supply, where needed, Edwards EBPS Series Booster Power Supplies (EBPS) that are interconnected to and supervised by the main system. The EBPS shall function as a stand-alone auxiliary power supply with its own fully-supervised battery compliment. The EBPS battery compliment shall be sized to match the requirements of the main system. The EBPS shall be capable of supervising and charging batteries having the capacity of 24 ampere-hours for Mass Notification/Emergency Communication (MNEC), life safety and security applications, and the capacity of 65 amperehours for access control applications. The EBPS shall provide a minimum of four independent, fully supervised Class B circuits that can be field configurable for notification appliance circuits or auxiliary 24 Vdc power circuits. EBPS NACs shall be convertible to a minimum of two Class A NACs. Each EBPS output circuit shall be rated at 3 amperes at 24 Vdc. Each output circuit shall be provided with automatically restoring overcurrent protection. The EBPS shall be operable from the main system NAC and/or Edwards Signature Series control modules. EBPS NACs shall be configurable for continuous, 3-3-3 temporal or optionally, California rate. Fault conditions on the EBPS shall not impede operation of main system NAC. The EBPS shall be provided with ground fault detection circuitry and a separate AC fail relay.

Notes 1. Maintain 1/4-inch (6 mm) spacing between power-limited and nonpower-limited wiring or use type FPL, FPLR, or FPLP cable per NEC. [2] Power-limited and supervised when not configured as auxiliary power. Nonsupervised when configured as auxiliary power. [3] Source must be power-limited. Source determines supervision. 4. When using larger batteries, make sure to position the battery terminals towards the door.

Single or cascaded booster anywhere on a notification appliance circuit
Existing NAC end-of-line resistors are not required to be installed at the booster's terminals. This allows multiple boosters to be driven from a single NAC circuit without the need for special configurations.
