Altronix Takes on the Network at ASIS 2008

o Introduces Industry Awaited Network Power Solutions.
o Enhances Existing Product Line-Up That Delivers More Than Just Power.

Atlanta, GA (September 15, 2008) - Altronix, the industry leader in low voltage power solutions, has made the long awaited announcement of its entry into networked power solutions here at ASIS 2008. The company is also showing a number of new and innovative systems products that deliver more than just power to provide integrated functionality for professional video, security and life safety applications.

New power solutions from Altronix include: PoE (Power over Ethernet) and PoN (Power over Network) power supplies for PoE compliant and conventional IP cameras; cost-effective StrikeIt2 Panic Device Power/Controller for single door applications; UL listed 16 output Rack Mount Power Supplies with selectable 12VDC and/or 24VDC rated at 18 amps max; and NAC Power Extenders that now meet UL 9th Edition.
"Altronix has always remained at the forefront of power solutions for emerging professional video, security and fire technologies to stay a step ahead of new trends and industry demands," said Alan Forman, President, Altronix Corporation. "Networked video surveillance and access systems represent numerous challenges for both manufacturers of edge devices as well as the companies that make the systems components necessary to support those devices."

"With our new lines of PoE and PoN power solutions, Altronix is taking on the network with the performance, quality and reliability we are proud to brand with our company name," said Mr. Forman.

Power over Network (PoN) is a term coined by Altronix to describe a new series of power supplies designed specifically for the myriad IP cameras now on the market that are not PoE compliant. Until now, these cameras typically had to be installed using individual local power supplies. Altronix's new PoN power supplies deliver low voltage power to IP cameras over CAT5 cabling up to 100 meters (328'). Altronix's new PoN units provide system designers and installers with a very cost-efficient solution relative to equipment, cabling and installation costs.

Altronix's Power over Ethernet (PoE) products include both mid-span and end-point solutions over CAT5 cabling up to 100 meters (328'). The units are engineered to deliver a reliable, cost-effective and performance enhancing solution backed by Altronix's world renowned reputation and commitment to quality.

In addition to these new milestone network power solutions from Altronix, the company is also introducing:

The StrikeIt2 Panic Device Power Controller is an economical solution for single door applications. The new unit operates one 24VDC panic hardware device with an auxiliary power output for peripherals such as a card reader, keypad, REX, PIR, timer or relay.

The UL listed 16 output Rack Mount Power Supplies feature four groups of outputs selectable for 12VDC and/or 24VDC rated at 18 amps max. Features include LED indicators for each group of outputs, and filtered and electronically regulated PTC protected outputs with short circuit and thermal overload protection. The unit's 2U rack mount chassis is designed for use in standard EIA 19" racks.

Altronix is also showcasing their new series of NAC Power Extenders with UL 9th Edition listing for life safety systems. Four new models are available offering installers a variety of choices to meet local codes and power requirements.
