Hybrid Power Supply Unit (HPSU)

Hybrid Power Supply Unit (HPSU)

PPSU White  

Size and Weight 

  • Width: 1.35 cm (0.5")
  • Height: 0.45 cm (0.2")
  • Depth: 1.1 cm (0.4")

Power Run Time

  • High: 1:00
  • Med: 2:45 
  • Low: 3:15 

Notes

  1. Most applications (comparable to the previous PSU) use Medium, depending on the size of the venue and how far the sensors are. You may try out low or high to conserve power or boost the IR.
  2. A USB port is available where you can use to charge an external Beacon.  
    • An External Beacon can be charged approximately 90% if the HPSU is fully charged, and the Beacon Battery is completely out of charge. This assumes no Stringers are attached to the Beacon.
    • The HPSU can also be used to extend the life of a Beacon Battery if it is required to run past its normal usage time. A Beacon with 1 Stringer has approximately 7.5 hours of additional usage time. Beacons with either 2 or 3 Stringers attached have approximately 1 hour of additional usage time.
