Sentry Lite Integrated
Common 12V

$174.00+gst

Following the success of the Sentry Lite model, Constant Vigil have developed the Sentry Lite Integrated model which incorporates a Lithium-Ion battery to provide an instantaneous, elegant and effective battery backup solution which reduces the AC wiring and clutter of a normal fibre installation.

High efficiency design ensures the Integrated model continues to provide typically 4 hours of backup support in standard ISP configurations.

Like its' predecessor, the integrated model is available in both a Common model (same voltage on two ports) or Dual model (different voltages on two ports) format. The Common 12V model satisfies the majority of fibre installations within New Zealand but custom voltage models are available upon request.

More About Sentry Lite Integrated

The Sentry Lite Integrated model has been designed with a built-in Lithium Ion battery with end user swap-out capability.

Extended battery life
The Sentry Lite Integrated tested with standard residential ONT/Router equipment from a number of separate ISPs has seen outage support in excess of four hours.

The Sentry Lite Integrated incorporates smart battery charging circuitry and, unlike other solutions, uses buck-boost technology to ensure output voltages remains within specification even if the input supply is lower than the actual output voltage.

Integrated smart battery charging ensures optimum charging, eliminates the risk of over-charging, and prolongs battery life. Batteries are estimated to be operational for in excess of 3 years.

One instead of two
The Sentry Lite replaces the two power packs currently necessary with the ONT and router devices. This provides a more aesthetic installation and support for both devices.

Accessories included
All cables and replacement power pack are provided within the kit. Power connections custom designed to individual ISP equipment designs area also available.

Full replacement
The Sentry Lite product is designed and manufactured in New Zealand to ISO9001 quality levels. Constant Vigil currently offer a 2 year full replacement guarantee on the Sentry Lite unit, not including the battery.

Internet Providers aren't currently able to provide a technical solution.  Talk to most providers and the answer will be a resounding ‘NO!”. Most will suggest installation of a costly Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) whilst others may suggest you use an inferior ADSL product which sort of defeats the object of the move to higher speed broadband right?

Why worry? A little bit of technical stuff now (sorry!)
Older analogue phone technology was supplied with power through the phone wires from the communications company. A power outage at the home did not necessarily affect operation of the phone service. Fibre-optic cable, whilst great for high speed data, is unable to carry electrical power and it is the home owners’ responsibility to provide this power once the transition is made to Ultra-Fast Broadband (UFB).

Fully Tested
The Sentry Lite Unit has already been fully tested within Snap (Huawei and Fritz!Box 7340/7390) and Orcon (Genius) installations and it is the ideal solution for those moving to higher speed broadband solutions where power supply is critical or indeed intermittent. Rural installations, susceptible to random power outages, can see some significant performance improvement when used in conjunction with the Sentry Lite Unit.

Unlike other solutions, the Sentry Lite Unit uses buck-boost technology and ensures the output voltage remain within specification even as the input supply is lower than the actual output voltage. For applications where short duration power supply issues or brown-outs are experienced, the Sentry Lite Integrated is an ideal solution, typically providing 1-2 hours of support time.

Where do I get more information?
The Sentry Lite can be customised to suit individual ISP or network equipment.  Being a DC based system, it will work just as effectively in other countries. Contact our support team with any questions.....we’re only too happy to assist you.

Indeed we would welcome partnering with ISPs to provide a complete tailored solution option for their customers. Contact us now to see how we can help you.

Installation Diagram

The Common Output model is suitable for the majority of installations where devices operate at the same voltage, typically 12V and indeed this model is well suited to the current Orcon (Genius) and Snap (Fritz!box and Hauwei) fibre installations, as well as numerous others, here in New Zealand and worldwide. The Common Output model is however ideal as a battery backup/electricity supply stabilisation for any existing low-power gateway, switch or hub.
