Which Battery Packs are Compatible with the Honeywell L5210?
There are three battery packs that are compatible with the Honeywell L5210. These packs are called the Honeywell LYNXRCHKIT-SC, the Honeywell LYNXRCHKIT-HC and the Honeywell LYNXRCHKIT-SHA. They all function the same and serve the same purpose, but they have different maximum capacities.
Keeping an alarm system powered on during an electrical outage is very important. You never know when a burglary or fire is going to occur, and it can be very serious if the emergency is left unreported. A battery pack serves as a backup power source for a system so that it stays running in any situation. Keep in mind that if the system loses both plug-in transformer power and battery power, then it will shut-down entirely.
There are three backup battery packs available for use with the L5210. These battery packs all connect with the L5210 board in the same place, and they all keep the system running when the power is out. But that does not mean these battery packs are created equal. Some can store more of a charge and keep an L5210 running for a longer period of time.
The LYNXRCHKIT-SC is the standard capacity battery. It can keep an L5210 running for up to 4 hours. The LYNXRCHKIT-HC is the high capacity battery. It can keep an L5210 running for longer than the standard capacity battery, but not as long as the super-high capacity battery. The LYNXRCH-KIT-SHA is the super-high capacity battery. It can keep an L5210 running for up to 24 hours. All three batteries are compatible with the other Honeywell LYNX Touch Systems as well.
These batteries all work by storing a charge while the L5210 System is running on AC power. The system will automatically switch over to battery power whenever AC power is lost. But batteries do not last forever, they will eventually lose their ability to store a charge. At that point, the battery must be replaced. This usually happens after 3 to 5 years. The system will display a low-battery warning to alert the user. The user should wait 24 hours with the system running on AC power to see if the message clears on its own. If it doesn't, then it's time to get a replacement.
