GSX 2019: Altronix Launches PoE-Driven Power Supply/Charger, More
The Altronix Tango1B PoE-driven power supply/charger with Lithium Iron Phosphate battery backup eliminates the need for a licensed electrician.
CHICAGO — Altronix is showcasing a number of new solutions this week at Global Security Exchange (GSX) 2019.
The company introduced its new Tango1B, PoE-driven power supply/charger with Lithium Iron Phosphate battery backup. This power solution is said to reduce the overall cost to deploy access control and security devices by eliminating the need for a licensed electrician. 12VDC or 24VDC devices can be powered simultaneously via 802.3bt PoE input.
“Our new Tango1B further capitalizes on the inherent benefits of utilizing PoE to efficiently power access control and further reduce the overhead associated with conventional access control deployment,” says Alan Forman, president, Altronix Corp. “With Tango, a technician can have an access or security system cost-effectively powered in seconds flat.”
Tango1B is powered by any 802.3bt 4PPoE power source (such as Altronix NetWay BT Series managed midspans), harnessing the new IEEE standard to deliver 12VDC and 24VDC simultaneously.
Tango provides battery backup using a single Lithium Iron Phosphate battery (LiFePO4) adding to the solution’s ROI. Tango is uniquely designed to be stacked with compatible Altronix sub-assemblies, utilizing a single footprint, according to the company.
Altronix is also showcasing its new NetWay 802.3BT (4PPoE) Series of managed midspan/injectors. Capable of delivering up to 90W per port (480W total), these new midspans are currently available with four or eight ports and include battery charging for applications requiring backup, and embedded LINQ technology to monitor, control and report power and diagnostics from anywhere over the network.
“Our NetWay BT Series provides power for the latest power-hungry illuminators and multisensor p/t/z cameras that conform to the new IEEE standard,” says Forman. “By expanding our NetWay product offering, system designers and integrators now have more cost-efficient options.”
The Altronix NetWay4BT and NetWay8BT are both housed in a compact 1U rack enclosure, provide PoE/PoE+/Hi PoE up to 90W (802.3bt compliant) power per port and pass data at 10/100/1000 Mbps at distances up to 100m.
Altronix also has on display its new Maximal Fit Series of access power controllers. These units provide system designers and integrators with a more compact and economical alternative to its Maximal Series, according to the company.
“Our new Maximal Fit models lower the cost of deploying access control, utilizing less space,” Forman says.
Designed to save wall space, the new compact Maximal Fit Series includes models with single or dual power supply/chargers with or without sub-assemblies and accessories to meet a wide range of system requirements.
Units can also be customized or pre-installed with myriad combinations of Altronix power and sub-assemblies. Power supply features include: supervised fire alarm disconnect; low power cutoff and overvoltage protection; built-in battery charger that is 30-50% faster; room to accommodate up to four 12AH/12VDC batteries and are network ready by adding a LINQ2 network communication module to control, monitor and report power/diagnostics.
You can view the latest Altronix solutions in booth 933 at GSX through Sept. 12.
