The DSC HSM2300 Auxiliary Power Supply provides up to 1.0A of extra current for a DSC PowerSeries NEO Alarm System. This module is great if you need additional current to power a large number of sensors or keypads for your wired system. It works will all versions of the PowerSeries NEO.
Hardwired sensors and wired keypads typically get their power from a wired panel. The panel receives this power from a plug-in transformer. If the transformer does not provide enough current on its own, then you might add an auxiliary power supply to provide additional power. Power supplies like the DSC HSM2300 are also used to power sirens when the system cannot provide enough power on its own.
To provide the NEO Panel with power, the HSM2300 uses a 16.5VAC, 40VA transformer of its own (transformer not included). You will also want to add a backup battery to the power supply so that it can remain operational during an electrical outage. The module can be used with a single 12V 4Ah battery, a single 12V 7Ah battery, or two (2) 12V 7Ah batteries together. Consider the power needs for your panel when selecting a battery. Remember, more battery backup will be able to keep the power supply running for a longer period of time.
Up to four (4) HSM2300 modules can be used per NEO Panel. This will depend on which version of the DSC PowerSeries NEO you are using. Only the 128-zone HS2128 NEO Panel can support the maximum number of four (4) units. The power supply includes status LED lights to assist with troubleshooting. The module should be housed inside a metal enclosure for safe storage.
Note: No transformer is included with this product. We recommend purchasing the Honeywell 1361-GT Transformer separately, which will work fine with this power supply.
