Alpha to present the industry standard in backup power solutions to ensure security systems stay powered in any environment

OPS Solar pole RR carAlpha Technologies, a leader in backup power systems and equipment for security applications, will showcase its line of uninterruptable power supplies (UPS) for indoor or outdoor use and a complete solar power system for off-grid applications, at the Electronic Security Expo (booth 141) in Baltimore, June 24-26.

Because electronic monitoring and security systems are dependent on power grids, no power means no security. In the event of a natural or manmade disaster, or even a short brownout, it is critical that these systems have reliable backup power. Unfortunately, quality power systems that can withstand these conditions, as well as everyday wear-and-tear of outdoor environments, are not easy to find.

At the show, Alpha Technologies will display a wide range of power systems that address these industry needs. Featured products include:
  • Alpha's Solar Power System (SPS) – A comprehensive power system, from solar panel to batteries, for complete powering of remote locations.
  • Alpha FXM 350 – A rugged outdoor UPS power module used worldwide in the most demanding environments where clean backup power is needed.
  • Alpha Micro Secure 100 – The all-in-one, reliable and rugged UPS, or backup power solution, supporting loads up to 100 watts and protected by an outdoor rated (NEMA 3R) enclosure.
