Linear Releases Battery Backup for Garage Door Operator

July 26, 2012
Linear has introduced a new Battery Backup Unit (BBU) for its Ultra-Quiet LDCO800 DC-Powered Garage Door Operator.

Designed for emergency backup, the compact BBU gives dealers opportunities for add-on and retrofit sales while guaranteeing customers can get in and out of the garage during a power outage.
 
The BBU's compact design allows it to mount easily within the LDCO800 enclosure, preserving the appearance of the DC operator, while continuing to grant the peace of mind, safety and security needed in the event of a power failure. Depending on when the garage door is first opened following a power outage, the BBU can continue to provide power to the LDCO800 for up to 24 hours.
 
Linear is also pleased to announce that LDCO800 garage door operators now automatically ship pre-configured and ready for the BBU upgrade. The new operators will include an updated control board (part number HAE00061) that is ready for immediate plug and play installation of the BBU. The HAE00061 control board works with and provides BBU compatibility for all previous generations of LDCO800 garage door operators, making it a great retrofit option, the company says.
 
"Power outages are inconvenient enough without losing access to the garage," said Gary Baker, vice president of marketing for Linear. "Our new battery backup unit ensures garage doors remain functional at the most critical time, when the power goes out, also giving Linear dealers a valuable add-on accessory that benefits their customers."
 
Linear offers an extensive line of AC and DC powered garage door operators, all available with interchangeable chain or belt drive rails that can also be converted to an I-beam rail.
