  • Includes a single-pole volt-free changeover relay that switches for any fault condition.
  • Includes a fault type & hazardous voltages present LED.
  • Two selectable battery charge currents.
  • Battery fault impedance limits can be optimised to suit load current (helps extend battery life)*.
  • Mains fail simulation mode.
  • Improved on-board temperature sensor with optional remote sensor.
  • Electronic functions comply with EN50131-6 grades 1-4 for security applications.

Product Information

The C-TEC BF560-24/E is a Mains input to regulated DC PSU providing 1.5 A @ 24 V DC nominal, designed for use with fire and security systems. Combining the functions of a PSU, battery charging unit and battery monitoring unit, it is designed and intended for use in OEM equipment. It is supplied with a finger-protective ‘live parts’ cover.

The system designer must assure the compatibility to all relevant standards for the PSU within the installed enclosure. For full compliance with all relevant standards and directives, the PSU must be installed inside a suitable enclosure.

Technical Details

Approvals/certifications Includes the same electronics as our EN54-4/A2 certified BF560-24/E PSU
Compatibility *** Full compliance with all relevant standards must be checked by the responsible person with the caged PSU installed in a suitable enclosure ***
Application/operation A caged Mains to regulated DC switch-mode/digital hybrid power supply providing 1.5A @ 24V DC. It includes a single pole volt-free changeover relay that switches for any fault condition. User customisable via a BF423 Configurator.
Mains supply 230V 50/60Hz.
Mains rated current 400mA r.m.s.
Total output current limited to 1.5A (Max. output current).
Output I max.a: 1.3A or 0.8A selectable. A load greater than I max.a will temporarily reduce batt. charging. I.max.b: 1.5A, charging turned off via CONN6. Output is also customisable via a BF423 Configurator*.
Battery charge capacity 2Ah up to 12Ah (battery charged to 80% capacity in 24hrs). Output is customisable via a BF423 Configurator to suit different manufacturers' batteries*.
Max battery size and type Up to 12Ah VRLA dependent on the size of the enclosure the BF560-24/E is mounted in.
Indicators Supply Present (Green); General Fault (Amber); Auxiliary Fault (Amber); Hazardous Voltages Present (Red).
Connections Mains Input (CONN1); Supply Output (CONN3); Battery Input (CONN3); Fault Relay (CONN4); Charge Off Input (CONN5). Battery Charge Current Link (PLK1); Battery Monitoring On/Off Link (PLK2); High Temp. Output (PL2).
Expansion connections A remote thermistor can be connected via PL3 terminals.
