Battery Disconnect

Battery powered equipment found in today’s telecommunications (and other) facilities utilize a disconnecting means.

DC Disconnects for Battery Power Plants

A disconnect provides a simple means to isolate a string of batteries for maintenance purposes. In addition, some local municipalities or fire department regulations require a remote means for disconnecting the battery string in the event that emergency personnel need to enter a facility. The DC disconnect, with a remote EPO switch option, addresses this requirement.

The National Electrical Code also provides guidelines when a battery disconnect is used. See the Code here.
