Which Battery Packs are Compatible with the Honeywell L3000?
There are three battery packs that are compatible with the Honeywell L3000. These include the Honeywell LYNXRCHKIT-SC, the Honeywell LYNXRCHKIT-HC and the Honeywell LYNXRCHKIT-SHA. Each battery pack is exactly the same, except for the total amount of electrical charge it can hold.
Every alarm system needs to use a backup power source every now and then. This is usually because the panel is unable to use transformer power due to an electrical outage. Keeping the system running when this occurs in case a burglary, fire or other emergency occurs. If the system is powered off during an emergency, the situation can go unreported, and the user might not get the help they need. Once the system loses both transformer power and battery power, it will shut-down completely until power is restored.
If a user needs a new battery for their L3000, they have three options to choose from. Each battery serves the same purpose, and it connects to the system in the same manner. The difference is the amount of charge the battery can store and how long it can keep the system running. The LYNXRCHKIT-SC is the standard capacity battery, and it can power the L3000 for up to 4 hours. The LYNXRCHKIT-HC is the high capacity battery, and it can keep the system powered for much longer. The LYNX LYNXRCHKIT-SHA is the super-high capacity battery, and it can keep the L3000 Powered beyond 24 hours. Each battery will also work with the Honeywell LYNX Touch Panels.
When the system is running on transformer power, the backup battery will slowly be storing a charge in the background. This will allow it to be ready for when the electricity goes out. The system will automatically switch to backup power when this happens. But over time, the battery will lose its ability to store a charge. This is when the battery must be replaced, and it usually happens after 3 to 5 years. The system will display a low-battery warning on the screen to alert the user. However, it's also possible that the power was out, and the battery just needs time to restore its charge. The user should give the battery 24 hours to recharge while the system is running on continuous AC power. If the low battery warning doesn't clear, then the user should consider replacing the battery.
