security bar breakin4 00000002Alpha Technologies, a worldwide designer and manufacturer of advance power systems, today announced it will showcase its broad range of security products, from enclosures to internal and external security devices, and its industry-leading power supplies at ABTA 2015 taking place in São Paulo, Brazil, August 4-6.

Cable and broadband networks in the Latin American region, including Brazil, are experiencing significant growth, resulting in investment in new equipment. Protecting that investment against vandalism and theft is an important industry concern.

When equipment is not properly protected, it means some of Brazil’s 20 million pay-tv subscribers could go without service while providers are left working overtime to make repairs.


Alpha Technologies to showcase rugged outdoor backup power solutions at Electronic Security Expo

Alpha to present the industry standard in backup power solutions to ensure security systems stay powered in any environment

OPS Solar pole RR carAlpha Technologies, a leader in backup power systems and equipment for security applications, will showcase its line of uninterruptable power supplies (UPS) for indoor or outdoor use and a complete solar power system for off-grid applications, at the Electronic Security Expo (booth 141) in Baltimore, June 24-26.

Because electronic monitoring and security systems are dependent on power grids, no power means no security. In the event of a natural or manmade disaster, or even a short brownout, it is critical that these systems have reliable backup power. Unfortunately, quality power systems that can withstand these conditions, as well as everyday wear-and-tear of outdoor environments, are not easy to find.

At the show, Alpha Technologies will display a wide range of power systems that address these industry needs. Featured products include:
  • Alpha's Solar Power System (SPS) – A comprehensive power system, from solar panel to batteries, for complete powering of remote locations.
  • Alpha FXM 350 – A rugged outdoor UPS power module used worldwide in the most demanding environments where clean backup power is needed.
  • Alpha Micro Secure 100 – The all-in-one, reliable and rugged UPS, or backup power solution, supporting loads up to 100 watts and protected by an outdoor rated (NEMA 3R) enclosure.
