Time for a Cool Change

In recent years, our Industry saw a migration from incandescent bulbs, to LED technology. The latter is more effective, efficient, with a smaller footprint. PoE UPS, is not dissimilar. For our Clients using legacy plug-in UPS devices for Ethernet powered Products, their UPS technology has not been brought current for today’s applications. Once exposed to LED technology, Clients did not continued to insist on incandescent bulbs. those became extinct, when a more ideal solution was brought to market. Like lED bulbs, BTU is a significant advancement in technology, and ideally suited for the Client’s PoE environment.



96 Hour Off-Grid Run-Time? No Problem…

Security Projects at America’s Theme Parks

may be DHS funded


Security expansion, Cyber Security, heightened Life Safety measures are being funded for America’s Theme Parks, by DHS. Exemplifying the true threat of terroristic activities. BTU allows these to occur without trenching and other such disruption, that would otherwise be necessary. Tremendous Energy conservation was also introduced. Grid power is discontinued via photo sensors, at daylight. Emergency Call boxes, IP cameras, Radio Signal Transmitters are powered constantly, by virtue of connection to BTU. At night, when AC power is needed for parking lot lighting, BTU’s Lithium Ion Power Packs are recharged.

POE Critical Infrastructure Market Is On The Edge. Positive Train Control PTC) is also an example of modern technology, that is essential to train passenger safety. The same technology is also used to protect Theme Park Guests on thrill-rides, roller coasters, and the like. PTC is a sensor based system that is dependent upon Continuous PoE in order to be affective.
