Battery backup report - real use
#11
An elegant solution; especially for the PR 12V machines.
I wonder if the 12V to 24V Resmed up converters are designed for quasi-continuous use?
Or, just intended for the occasional need.

I have the up-converter and a 12V AGM battery on a Battery tender. I'd need to do the switch-over manually.
Here on the left coast we haven't had outages since the early millennium; and those were "politically" motivated (IMO).
They are predicting outages this summer.

I have an Astron SS25M supply (somewhere in the pile). I wonder if it has the Voltage trim to float the battery using the PWRgate switch.

I don't know, but I would think they would be good for continuous use absent any warning or contrary instructions in their manuals or other literature. I would think it a standard thing for folks that live on boats or for others, like truckers, who sleep on their truck cabs a large part of their time.

I still have an S-9 I had before I found the PR560 on CL, bought and began really appreciating the PR System One machines. When I get a little further ahead on money, I will consider using the S-9 on this system with the ResMed DC converter, just to extend the life of the PR560 a few more years. And not end up just wasting the remaining life in the S-9. I think it may have like maybe 3,000 hours on it so it has a lot of life left. Though I do like how the PR machine works better.
