The UPSPro® series outdoor systems are designed for applications that require a backup power source in order to maintain uninterrupted service in the event of AC power failure. The system is powered over a CAT5 network cable via Power over Ethernet (PoE) using a Power Supply and PoE Inserter (included). Features include an advanced battery charge controller to protect against over-charging or over-discharging of the valve regulated sealed lead acid AGM batteries. Enclosures have multiple ports for CAT5 cable, antenna cables/connectors or other cabling. They are vented to prevent residual buildup of hydrogen gas.
There is some space inside the enclosures for customer electronics such as controllers, wireless AP or CPE cards, sensors, inverters, etc. Equipment runs on battery power which isolates it from power line surges which is the main cause of outdoor equipment failure.
Models are equipped with a Solar Ready controller so they can also be powered using solar panels in addition to or instead of the Power Supply and PoE Inserter.
A typical 250mW wireless access point with average power consumption of 3.5W will run 24 hours on a 8.5Ah battery at room temperature or 16 hours at -20 deg C.
