SHAKOPEE, MN - Providing backup power for fiber-to-the-home equipment in the customer premises has been a vexing problem for fiber deployers for the last decade. Now, a new line of desktop FTTx DC power supply and battery backup units introduced by CyberPower Systems, a manufacturer in the FTTx DC power supply industry, offers more choices for small service providers.

CyberPower models DT30U12V-NA3 and DT30U12V-NA3-G, which are designed for mountable locations and desktop use, are suited for powering optical network terminals (ONTs) installed inside homes, as opposed to more traditional outdoor locations. This allows for flexibility of location and reduced installation costs, which benefits both telecom providers and home users. Telecom providers can offer these devices as stand-alone solutions or bundle them with their multiservice packages.

Because the units are aesthetically pleasing and have a flexible design, they can be placed on desktops as opposed to garages, basements, utility closets or other out-of-sight locations. This allows telecom providers to install the devices more quickly, positioning them alongside devices such as phones, cable modems, broadband routers and other home electronics. This makes wiring faster and cuts down on installation costs.

“The new, cost-effective FTTx DC Power Supply and Battery Backup ... brings the advanced features previously only available to the RBOCs to any service provider in an aesthetically pleasing, customer-friendly design,” says Mark Lewis, senior engineer at CyberPower Systems. “We’re excited about this product introduction, as we’re the first in the industry to manufacture a product with this rich a feature set for all levels of service provider.”

In addition to a compact, flexible design, the units feature an advanced LED and audible indicator system with six control devices for simple customer interpretation of unit status. The improved battery algorithm accurately tests and maintains the battery for peak performance with minimal degradation and allows for the greatest utilization of battery capacity. The alarm can be muted with the systems’ ALARM SILENCE technology, enabling users to selectively silence the audible alarm for up to 24 hours or indefinitely. To activate reserve battery power or to start the units with a new battery, users can press the COLD START button, allowing extended use of the unit.

The units have an input voltage range of 100Vac – 240Vac with a frequency range of 47 – 70Hz. The on-battery output voltage is 12Vdc nominal and runs with continuous power capacity of 30 watts and greater than 75 percent efficiency. The unit utilizes a commonly available 12V 7.2AHr battery.
