Ultra-Reliable Power for Security Devices

By combining a plug-in power supply with a smart backup battery charger, the Elk Power Supply/Battery Charger Kit provides reliable 1.5A/12VDC power for surveillance cameras, access controls, alarm devices, and other security devices. The Power Supply has positive and negative screw terminals for connections, and offers built-in overload reset. In the event of a power outage, the Battery Charger will signal your backup battery (not included) to kick in and maintain continuous power.

To purchase this Elk Power Supply/Battery Charger Kit WITH a 12V battery included, alternatively choose part ELK-P1215K, which offers the same Power Supply and Battery Charger along with an appropriate battery.

  • Power supply can auto-reset for overload protection
  • Charger board charges a 12V backup battery
  • Signals low battery trouble at 11V
  • Low battery cutoff at 9V prevents "deep discharge"
  • Master power switch turns all power On/Off

Intelligent Battery Supervision

If DC power from the Power Supply is lost, the battery will continue to deliver power to the DC output terminals and the Battery Charger Board will monitor the battery's voltage. If voltage falls to 11V, the board will transmit a low battery signal through the -SUP output, which connects to an alarm device or security panel.

If an 11V low battery alert is initiated, the battery will still supply power to the output terminals. However, if the voltage falls even lower to 9 volts, the Battery Charger will then cut off battery power to avoid "deep discharging."

The Master Power Switch on the Charger Board allows you to turn On/Off all power at any time. Both the power supply and backup battery will shut off.


  • Power Supply (ELK-P1417)
  • Circuit / Charger Board (ELK-P1215CB)


  • Backup battery not included.
  • Output voltage from the Power Supply is 13.8 to 14VDC to properly charge the battery.
  • The -SUP output will only work until Low Battery Cutoff activates, at which time -SUP becomes inactive since all power to the board will be completely shut off.
