A Complete Range of Steel and ABS Plastic Housings for Dycon Power Supply Modules, Peripherals & 3rd Party Products
Dycon Power Solutions works extensively with professional security/fire system installers and integrators to ensure that they have the right tools to deliver practical, workable, power solutions that enable their installations to be easily installed and operate reliably. Unlike many other suppliers who provide just one or two plain metal boxes, Dycon believes that the housing is an integral part of making an installation quicker and less prone to failure and has developed a range of different options to help an installer chose the right combination. Part of this thinking is ensuring, right at the start, that the power supply chosen has the right dimensions for the job, that it can fit the available wall space, that it will allow easy cable terminations, and also, have sufficient space to fit any requisite batteries. Coupled to this is the question of reliable front and/or back anti-tamper provision, the method of securing the cover/lid and, increasingly, the colour of the box. Dycon comprehensive Housing Range offers solutions to all these issues and complements the extensive range of Dycon power modules.

Ample Space for Standby Batteries
Often, other manufacturers only offer two housing sizes, that forces you to use one that might prove too small and you have to cramp everything in, or, one that is too big and leaves lots of wasted space, Dycon's extensive range of housings are designed to utilise space in the most economical way. That means that you need simply choose what battery or batteries you will actually need and then select the housing to suit that need.
Choosing the right housing......
Dycon boxes are available, ready assembled and wired, for most standard Dycon power supply modules, check the Quick Product Guide to see if your requisite power requirement is available in any particular housing.
Correct housing selection is easy:
1 - Determine how much power output you need
2 - Calculated which standby battery requirements you will need
3 - Use the Dycon Quick Product Guide(QPG) to select the Dycon appropriate PSU module
4 - The QPG shows you which size housings are available for that PSU
