Power failure sensor
The power failure sensor detects real-time power failure.
  • Provides real-time detection of power failure.
  • Used to monitor the power supply of a main, 3 phase, UPS or backup generator source.
  • Install multiple sensors for alerts when one power source fails and back up supply takes over.
  • Plug and play switch sensor provides dry contact output.
  • Comes with 5V power adapter for direct plug to power source.
  • Cable length can be extended to 274.32m (900 feet) using standard speaker wire, twisted pair or any reliable low voltage 2-wire cable.
  • Used with Varius Message Router (cellular) with 8 dry contact inputs and Varius Message Router (non-cellular) with 8 dry contact inputs.
The power failure sensor is a switch sensor that provides dry contact output.
  • Sensor outputs Open dry contact output when power failure is detected.
  • Sensor is connected to Varius Message Router with 8 dry contact inputs.
  • Configure rules for sending trip alerts, repeated trip alerts and recovery alerts.
  • Create alert profiles based on different recipients and alert channels for wider reach.

Power Failure Sensor User Guide

The power failure sensor allows users to view real-time logs.
  • Real-time logs provide live information of the power failure status.
  • Supports filtering rules based on log date, dry contact Open/Closed status and sensor status.
  • Logs can be exported to Excel or other external systems for further processing.
  • Customize log retention period according to your compliance policy.
