Hi guys, my name's Darrel. I'm head of the tech team here at LocksOnline.co.uk and thanks for taking some time to tune in to one of our product review videos. And more importantly the product that we're going to have a look at today is the Asec range of power supplies.
Now, this is the 12 volt version. They do a 24 volt version and this 12 volt version also can come in size-, power output sizes of 1 amp, 3 amp, I think it's 2 amp as well and also 5 amp. Now, the 1 amp and the 2 amp power supplies they of the same size as this and then the 3 amp and the 5 amp have got a bigger box etc.
So, one of the things that customers keep asking us is 'How does it-, how do you connect it and so forth and what are the connections inside?' And this is the classic, ideal opportunity for us to turn around and actually show you what it is inside, what room do you have and what all the terminations and so forth are inside.
So, if I open that up for us now and I'll try to get around here as well. So, I can actually show you a little bit more-, a little bit more in more detail. So the reason for the big box, as you can see here, is that this allows you here to actually fit a battery should you need to do so. Because on the terminations here you have the ability to come out and connect and charge up a spare battery. So, in the event of a power failure or anything like that, at least then you'll have a back up battery if you want to. You don't have to, but if you wanted to have a backup power source then at least you have the opportunity to do so.
The-, what you'll also see here is this little spring and that there-, that there is a tamper spring. Now, certain security systems or certain access control systems or anything that you may want to power up. If somebody tampers with the power it could actually compromise your security. So, you may need to be alerted or you might need to know whether or not somebody has actually tampered with it. And of course, as soon as somebody actually opens the door this tamper switch is going to go off and set whatever alarm you might have or anything like that. Again, you don't have to use it but it's there should you want it.
What it also comes with as well is, it comes with a fixing screw, obviously for the cover there. It comes with the-, these are the wires that you would actually connect the battery with. You'd sit the battery there and in these terminations here it's hard for me to see, but what you'll have here is you'll have the power output. There will be two of them. There will be two of them for the tamper. And then the other two then will be the charging circuit to charge the battery. On here, this row here, is where you'd connect your mains power.
Now, the box has been well thought out and it has been well maintain-, thought about how to actually make connection into it. And what you'll find is, is that if I just pop that on there a second and close that up, we can actually have a look around the back of it here. And as you can see here's where'd be the fixing points to fix it to the wall. And you've got loads of different access points here to allow you to get cables into the back of the box, should you want.
Also this fixing points, I don't know if you can actually see are slightly raised to allow then if you wanted to set a cable behind then you do have-, you can just slide a cable down behind without having to rout out the back of the wall. It also has fixing access points on the top. These are knock outs, these are 20 millimetre knock outs. One there. You've got one on the side. You've got one on the bottom. And you've got one on the other side.
If, also, you've got an LED indicator light here. You've got green to say that there's power. And if there's anything wrong with the charger or the charging circuit etc., then you've got this red indicator as well. Which will give you a visual indication through the front of the panel there to show you whether or not there's a problem with it.
Now, as an installer and when I used to be on the tools, this particular type of power supply is used a lot. And what you find some people do is they fix it to the wall, they run a stuffing gland out of there to a length of cable. And then you can either put it into a plug top or you can run it into few spur and then you'd run whatever access control system you want from that.
So, there's not really much more I can say about it other than, like I've mentioned, it's available in different sizes and it's depending on what you'll want to use, will depend on what size that you'll need. Battery size, you can normally get up to around about a 7 amp per hour, I'm almost sure-, yeah you'll most certainly get a 7 amp per hour battery in there, no problem at all.
So, there you go guys. If there's something that I haven't mentioned and you think 'Oh, I can do with that measurement.' or 'I can do with that specification etc.' Or you're wanting to know something else about it, pop an e-mail over to us. Use the phone if you want. We've got Live Chat on our site. We're more than willing to have a chat with you and give you a little bit more guidance or advice, should you so need it.
One thing we'd really love is for you to become a customer of ours. So, you know, if this is the product for you hey come and-, come and add to our cart. We'd really appreciate it.
So from me, Darrel, and all of us here at the LocksOnline team thanks for taking the time to look at the video and catch up with you real soon. Take care you guys. Bye bye.
