LifeSafety Power, AMAG Technology Further Technology Partnership
The FlexPower ACLASS Unified Power System for AMAG will be available as a turnkey access control product in a single, coordinated unit.
MUNDELEIN, Ill. — A renewed technology partnership between LifeSafety Power and AMAG Technology has resulted in the mechanical and electrical integration of power, access control hardware and lock power in a pre-designed enclosure.
The FlexPower ACLASS Unified Power System for AMAG will be available as a turnkey product in a single, coordinated unit, offering specification and installation efficiencies to installing security contractors, according to an announcement.
FlexPower ACLASS Systems will incorporate AMAG’s Symmetry M2150 series controllers and leverage the complete integration of all components for 4-, 8- and 16-door systems in single and dual voltages, with the ability to add battery management, remote system reporting and proactive managed services.
Traditionally, access control integrators would require three separate cabinets for system power, lock power and access hardware, greatly increasing the wall space footprint and the job costs due to multiple AC drops and inter-cabinet wiring, according to the announcement. With ACLASS, security integrators can take advantage of a single chassis engineered to coordinate electrical and mechanical integration.
The integration is said to provide faster, simpler installation and greater service efficiencies for AMAG installations. A removable back plate simplifies controller wiring and expansion slots are ready for network monitoring upgrades. The pre-connected power section further saves labor field time and an AC disconnect point yields easy servicing, according to the announcement.
The enclosure includes space for additional output distribution, alarm monitoring or intelligent managed services with NetLink Network Communications modules for detailed power health reporting, remote battery testing, email/SNMP alerts and other predictive data.
“FlexPower ACLASS power solutions allow installers to quickly deploy enclosures and save time and labor,” says John Olliver, senior vice president of sales and marketing, LifeSafety Power. “We’re excited to expand our partnership with AMAG Technology, a global leader in access control. Working with AMAG to present FlexPower ACLASS systems to the security industry will bring new opportunities to grow our integrated power solution designs and provide much-needed cost savings to the security installation community.”
Modular Design Advantages
The modularity of LifeSafety Power’s FlexPower line and ACLASS enclosures also provides the versatility to create an unlimited number of system configurations and specification possibilities, according to the company. The factory pre-wired power section lessens configuration time and the removable back plate further simplifies controller and component wiring.
“Our renewed partnership with LifeSafety Power provides a new level of choice for our certified resellers and can simplify the installation of Symmetry M2150 Intelligent Controllers,” says Dave Ella, vice president-products and partner programs, AMAG Technology. “The integration with FlexPower ACLASS power solutions delivers a time-saving, robust solution and we look forward to a long and successful partnership.”
