TekTone® will not warrant or support components of Tek-CARE®500 that are purchased separately unless the components are add-ons to previously sold systems.

BA510 Backup Battery
The Alpha Communications® BA510 Backup Battery is primarily for use with the Tek-CARE®500 (TC500) Wireless Emergency Call System, and provides uninterrupted, temporary 12 volt DC power to the NC510ES Receiver and/or NC511ES Repeater/Locator, in the event of primary power failure. Switch-over from primary power to the BA510 is automatic, as is the recharge of the system's batteries upon restoration of normal power.

Backup power is supplied through the use of one (1) sealed, lead-acid "gel cell" battery, rated at 12 volts for at least 1.2 amp-hours. The battery is replaceable, with connections made via female quick disconnect terminals. Mount the BA510 in an IH511 Waterproof Outdoor Housing to allow protected electrical connections.
