EBPS6A & EBPS10A
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.
Provides ample space for additional GenesisTM interface modules and battery compartment.
