DPS-V5 (Unlimited Online Backup Power)

Based on the placing the DPSv5 CATV's power grid controller in the event of a power outage the DPSv5 draws power from an alternative distant available source over existing coax or power cable for unlimited time.   Utilizing a complementary Power booster device the DPSv5 ensures an optimal voltage level – even backup from a very long distance.  In this way the power grid controller eliminates the need for the deployment and maintenance of expensive batteries & UPS . For simple installation DPSv5 can be installed instead of an existing Power Inserter.


Reducing Network Capital & Operational Costs.
DPSv5 system replaces outdated battery and UPS with modern cost backup power technology solution.
Improved Network Reliability.
DPSv5 ensures that there are no signal or data interruptions during utility power outages.
Unlimited Backup Time.
DPSv5 offers unlimited backup time, as opposed to battery backup of up to 2-3 hours


Improved Disaster Recovery.
DPSv5 helps operators minimize the number of generators needed to support the network by exploiting power from live areas or at-distance generators to outage areas.
  Fully Weatherproof for Enduring Use.
DPSv5's devices are completely unaffected by the weather, as opposed to batteries whose performance degrades greatly with temperature changes.
  Greater Energy Efficiency, Reduces Electric Bills.
DPSv5 can reduce electricity bills by up to 15%.
  Environmentally Friendly Solution.
Power and recycling cost saving with fewer batteries, all support efforts to reduce global warming CO2 pollution.
  Rapid Return On Investment.
In less than one year operators can start saving maintenance expenses.
  Less Street Cabinet.
A DPS system with less power insertion points that eliminates UPS and batteries also results in a network architecture with fewer street cabinets.

Proven through extensive use in the CATV networks of Europe North & South America, Asia & Africa. DPSv5 can either operate as a stand-alone system, replacing high maintenance cost battery backup, or be integrated alongside existing backup equipment until they are phased out at the end of their life cycle. Globally protected under both US and EP patents, the unique DPSv5 delivers the following outstanding benefits:

Optional DOCSIS Transponder for monitoring Online Voltage & Current & status.

Easily integrated with any advanced network management system, the DPS4 in-built capability for current measurement enables further cost reduction by predicting various problems in the network long before equipment failure.    

Unstable current may indicate defective trunk amplifiers, overheated power supply or corrupt contacts. All these costly conditions and others can be prevented by the DPS4’s early detection system that uses a single monitoring connector for all 4 ports.
