With a sturdy steel enclosure and an uninterruptible stream of super clean power, the Securitron Boxed Power Supply (BPS) offers the best of both worlds for all linear power supply needs. It's perfect for use with sensitive security devices like card readers, electric strikes, and maglocks, and has several amp sizes to fit a wide range of power needs.
The BPS comes with many options so that you can pick the model that best fits your project. They come with either one, four or eight outputs that put out either 12 or 24 VDC, and are protected by polyswitch PTC 2 Amp circuit breakers. You'll be able to easily connect or disconnect the load from power thanks to its slide switches in all but the 1 Amp BPS-12-1 model. Each output is on a separate current limited automatic circuit breaker, and the power status of each circuit is indicated by its own LED, which instantly tell you if there is voltage or not.
There are multiple protective features to keep the power supply operating properly. These units have the ability to keep the sealed lead acid gel/cell battery fully charged in the event of a voltage failure, but the battery is not included and must be purchased separately. If the fire alarm is activated, there is a fire alarm relay connection that will release all devices to make sure exit through the door is quick. If there is a DC short, it will be kept within the zone it occurs in, so that power to other areas isn't stopped. You can also purchase a Power Supply Monitor that will keep track of all key functions and report any issues, including ones with the battery pack.
The BPS has an input voltage of 120 VAC, and an operating temperature of 32 to 105 degrees Fahrenheit, or 0 to 40 degrees Celsius. There are two safety hazards to be aware of with this unit. The line voltage input is a high voltage shock hazard, and the DC output is a high energy hazard. The current could get high enough to melt wiring insulation and cause a fire. The cover LED will always let you know if there is a dangerous situation, and should be consulted before opening the enclosure. If there is ever a problem with the unit, it is covered by the MagnaCare lifetime replacement warranty with no fault.

The BPS-12-45 and BPS-24-3 have four outputs, and the former has a 4.5 Amp capacity, while the latter has a 3 Amp capacity. They are 14" by 14" by 4" and ship at 18 lbs. The BPS-12-6 and BPS-24-4 have eight outputs, and the former has a capacity of 6 Amps while the latter has a 4 Amp capacity. They are 15" by 18" by 6" and ship at 24 lbs. The BPS-12-9 and BPS-24-6 have eight outputs, and the former has a 9 Amp capacity while the latter has 6 Amps. They are 15" by 18" by 6" and ship at 28 lbs. The BPS-12-15 and BPS-24-10 have eight outputs, and the former has a 15 Amp capacity while the latter has a 10 Amp capacity. They are 15" by 18" by 6" and they ship at 33 lbs. The BPS-12 models all have 12 VDC output, while the BPS-24 models have an output of 24 VDC.
The BPS line is covered by several patents, approvals and listings to tell you everything you need to know about their quality and materials:
