WatchNET Gazette June 2016 In This Issue New product announcement Calculating UPS battery backup time Staff news Corporate profile Volume A, Issue 3 New Product Announcement WatchNET is proud to announce the new 4MP MPIX series and the new Balun17 to our already expansive line-up of IP cameras and accessories. The major benefit of the 4MP series is the True WDR feature whereas the 5MP series are equipped with the inferior D-WDR. Difference is True WDR has a wider dynamic range which translates to better and clearer viewing of the background in high contrast lighting scenes. This is beneficial when viewing through glass windows with an interior mounted camera. In addition, the long 50m IR range on these models are amazing!

So how does one go about figuring this out? Well, it can get rather technical and intimidating with specs like power factor (PF), linearity, efficiency, etc. Best to refer to an online calculator from UPS manufacturer’s to calculate or through the old school way using equations and a good old calculator as follows: 1. Determine the efficiency or "Power Factor" (PF) for your UPS's DC-AC converter. The PF of a UPS defines its efficiency. 2. Determine the capacity (in ampere-hours or "AH") for each of the UPS's backup batteries. 3. Add together the voltages from all of the batteries from Step 2. This will give you the combined DC voltage output for the UPS. Note: do not add together the capacities (AH rating), as that value is unaffected by the series circuit configuration. 4. Multiply the combined DC voltage (from Step 3) by the UPS's power factor (from Step 1). This result will represent the effective AC voltage output by the UPS. 5. Multiply the appliance's voltage by its amperage to calculate its power consumption in volt-amperes (VA). 6. Divide the appliance's (NVR) power consumption by the UPS's AC output voltage (from Step 4). This will give you the current (in amperes) the appliance will draw from the UPS. 7. Divide the total battery capacity in AH (from Step 3) by the current draw (from Step 6). This will give you the ideal maximum backup time for the UPS, in hours. No. of Hours of Battery Life = (Total Battery’s Amp-Hour Rating) divided by the (Max. Amp draw of NVR) ie: 6AH /10A = 0.6 hrs. (36 mins.)
