Battery Backup System
Post date: May 1, 2010 7:42:28 PM
A new battery backup system was installed on the W8SHI repeater today (May 1, 2010) More photos on the photo page
The system includes:
- 8 Optima Blue top batteries
- Magnum 1212 1200 watt inverter
- West Mountain power supply strip using power pole connectors to distribute the 12v power to the repeaters (2 analog and 2 digital plus computer).
We are anticipating 1 week of power for the repeaters under normal use and at least 24 to 48 hrs in emergency use.
We also upgraded memory on the gateway computer to 4 GB.
