What is the battery life of the batteries on the EP series controllers and BluB0X standard enclosures?
On the EP1502 and EP2500, the stored database will be saved for a minimum of three months after power is removed, assuming that the coin cell battery is fresh.
On the EP1501, a fully charged battery will store the database for a minimum of three days. It can take up to 48 hours to fully charge the re-chargeable battery.
When a customer purchases BluB0X enclosures they come with LifeSaftey Power modules and 2-12 volt batteries. These keep the controller and attached SIO boards fully functioning for 2-4 Hours. In addition to the Mercury Boards, the readers, peripherals and especially the locks (and their duty cycle) have a major impact in backup time. A typical battery provides 7 Amp/Hours of backup. If you budget about 1 amp per board with readers and locks, BluB0X's enclose for 4 Mercury boards, supporting 8 doors would last about 2 hours.
