Look for these and other featured products at the show: 

Critical Redundancy in Helix™ ATS PDU

New to the Helix™ product family is the Helix ATS, a rackmount Power Distribution Unit (PDU) and Automatic Transfer Switch (ATS).  The PDU serves as a rack power distribution center with added network management for monitoring and control of each power output.  Optional Helix ATS functionality uses a second AC input to provide automatic switchover if the primary AC source is compromised.  Helix ATS is ideal for data center applications for access control and IT equipment such as servers, switches and firewalls.

Helix ATS is configured in a 1U rack height with rear panel AC connections and front panel network, sensor and input connections. The Helix ATS front panel LED display indicates total AC current draw and is fully network managed for instant trouble notification via email/SNMP or through LifeSafety Power’s Multi-Site Manager (MSM) Enterprise™.  Using an embedded browser interface, Helix ATS monitors AC input voltages as well as voltage and current of each output.  Upper and lower threshold limits can be set for each output, alerting to potential problems with a powered device before a failure occurs. Each output can also be remotely reset through the browser interface, allowing the user to power cycle a connected device without needing to be physically onsite.

Expansion of BiTSTREAM® PoE Line

BiTSTREAM, LifeSafety Power’s IEEE 802.3bt-compliant midspan injectors and PoE powered DC power supply/chargers, expands with the BTS500 switch. The BTS500 network switch powers PoE compliant cameras, locks and access control edge devices. A unique Single-Point Fire Interface (SFI) feature allows egress on fire alarms through a single centralized fire alarm connection. UL 294-listed BiTSTREAM meets the high-power PoE++ standard, with the ability to power an access control system exclusively through PoE. Also in the product family, the BT500 midspan injector provides power and passes data to 8 or 16 PoE-compliant devices. BT and BTS models yield 500 watts total power with up to 90 watts per port and feature a universal AC input for global deployment. 

Do 8 Doors with Gemini RGX

The Gemini RGX are the deepest, rack-mount enclosures and the industry’s first integrated power and access control mechanical housings that let you spec 8 doors in a 2U enclosure. RGXM provides mounting for four Mercury Security controllers and multiple LifeSafety Power FlexPower® devices to control 8 doors as a standalone solution, or more when interconnected. Additional backplates for Honeywell, Software House and others will be available soon. RGX is available in Unified or ProWire configurations with power and distribution modules pre-wired.   

Professional Results with ProWire® Unified Power Systems

ProWire Unified Power Systems are an installer’s blueprint for consistent, streamlined power installations. ProWire Unified Power offers the highest level of integration between a power system and an access control solution and makes it simple to create a connected power campus, eliminating installation variability for repeatable and professional results. Network-connected ProWire systems can interface directly into Mercury Security, SWH C•CURE 9000, Genetec and Lenel software platforms, allowing users to receive, manage and control alerts and notifications. Network-managed ProWire systems are compatible with MSM Enterprise, so end-users can actively network, monitor and manage connected power solutions for greater uptime and dependability.

Total System Visibility with Multi-Site Manager-Enterprise™ (MSM Enterprise)

MSM Enterprise is the proven way to manage and control enterprise power solutions through one single interface/GUI and a PC-driven, web-accessible platform. The award-winning MSM Enterprise lets security dealers and integrators leverage in-depth analytics and continually assess system power operations for optimum operation and guaranteed reliability—with charts, graphs and other analytics for proactive systems management. MSM Enterprise allows single point monitoring of multiple sites, extracting information on operability and viability through power variances or voltage events. Users can monitor, assess, maintain and troubleshoot remotely.
