Description

The UltraTech 1270 is a battery backup that can be used in all wired alarm control panels to provide up (48) hours of standby power in the event of a power outage. The 1270 is a 12V 7Ah sealed lead acid battery. It provides more power than the smaller UltraTech 1240 backup battery.

You can use the UltraTech 1270 with a Honeywell residential alarm control panel such as the VISTA-10P, VISTA-15P, VISTA-20P or VISTA-21iP. Depending on how many devices are hooked up to the auxiliary power circuit of the alarm control panel, you may even be able to use the 1270 battery with the higher end commercial alarm control panels such as the VISTA-128BPT or VISTA-250BPT. The Honeywell installation guides for the listed alarm control panels call for a Yuasa model battery backup, but we have found the UltraTech to be a less expensive functional equivalent.

When wiring the UltraTech 1270 battery backup to your alarm control panel’s circuit board, make sure that all control panel wiring is complete and that AC power is present before connecting the battery leads. The 1270 will fit within your metal alarm cabinet and should sit flat on the bottom ledge. There will be red and black flying leads coming from the Honeywell alarm control panel with a spade connector at the end of each lead. Use the red spade lead to connect to the UT 1270 battery terminal marked in red and use the black spade lead to connect to the black battery terminal. If you ever need to remove battery power to the alarm control panel during troubleshooting or installation, simply remove one spade lead from the UltraTech 1270 battery. Make sure to always connect the battery after applying AC power to avoid troublesome low battery signals.

If your Honeywell VISTA Series alarm control panel has more than 70mA of auxiliary current being used, and you are not using a supplementary power supply, you should use a battery backup with increased amperage hours. All devices that are wired to the ECP terminal of the alarm control panel will draw auxiliary power. You will need to total the current draw of each device attached to the ECP terminals to determine which battery backup is suitable.

It is recommended, when wiring more than one battery in parallel, to use the same capacity batteries, so either both 4 AH, or both 7 AH. The potential issue would be how they charge (and discharge) over time. Having differing capacities may cause you headaches over the long haul.
