    safety applications,” said Mike Moran, Senior Vice President, In-Building Wireless at

    Westell. “The PS-BBU-01 is a key element in ensuring that police, firefighters, and other

    first responders can effectively communicate in emergency situations.”

    The output PS-BBU-01 is NFPA compliant, UL approved, and provided in a NEMA 4 red

    enclosure. The unit accepts 120/240 volt AC power input and delivers 120 volt AC output.

    Batteries are customer sourced. The battery back-up unit is the newest member of a

    portfolio of products for public safety communications that includes the PS71090 2-watt

    Public Safety Signal Booster and the PS51080 half-watt Public Safety Signal Booster.
