Power Failure Alarm
The Mobeye PowerGuard CM2100 (with PSU Type C, i.a. for EU) is a powerful and compact GSM alarm module to monitor power outages and the floating inputs. In an alarm situation, the PowerGuard will alert (SMS and / or call) to preset telephone numbers (up to 5 contacts can be programmed). Mobeye PowerGuard (CM2100) is also available with PSU for UK or PSU for USA / Canada.
The Mobeye PowerGuard runs on a 12V DC power source, or via the supplied mains adapter. As soon as the power fails, the batteries take over the operation; the contacts persons are informed of the outage via SMS and/or call, after which the GSM module goes into standby status. This ensures the unit still monitors the inputs and establishes network connection if an alarm message needs to be sent. It can work on batteries for more than a year. Once the power source returns, a recovery message is sent and the GSM module will remain connected to the network.
The two (NO / NC) inputs may be used for sensors or machine failure signals. Once an input is activated, the GSM dialer reports this via a phone call and a (free) text message.

Typical Applications for Mobeye PowerGuard
The Mobeye PowerGuard (CM2100) is designed to warn you in situations of a power outage. Several reasons can cause a power failure. For those situations where the availability is critical, receiving a power cut alarm can save a lot troubles. It is hardly impossible to list all examples of applications in the field, but just imagine the effect of a sudden lack of power in your own situation.
Typical applications are monitoring devices such as:
- air conditioners
- ICT servers
- water pumps
But even if the power itself is not the main concern, the Mobeye PowerGuard is a strong tool with its two normally open or normally closed alarm inputs. Any device can be monitored. For these situations you can also apply the Mobeye CM-Guard; the PowerGuard has the advantage that the mains adapter is included.
