New Little Giant SPBS Series Battery Backup Systems Provide Peace of Mind, Protect Valuable Investments

FORT WAYNE, IN--(Marketwired - Dec 2, 2015) - Franklin Electric Co., Inc. (NASDAQ: FELE) offers the new Little Giant SPBS Series Battery Backup Systems allowing contractors to provide homeowners with the peace of mind that their basement is protected from flooding when the electricity goes out. The Little Giant SPBS Series comes in four new systems: two options that feature the full system including a primary sump pump, backup sump pump, controller, charger and alarm, and two options providing everything except the primary sump pump. The full systems utilize the proven Little Giant 6EC or 10EC sump pumps that deliver capacities from 53-67 gallons per minute (gpm). The result is a system with high flow rates, quick charging time, and hours of battery longevity.

Adding our proven RS-12 switch, the Little Giant SPBS Series provides hours of reliable pumping when the electricity goes out. The switch technology requires nothing mechanical to operate the pump, thus minimizing the opportunity for mechanical hang-ups. In addition, it features a new controller, charger and alarm system that is available in 10 amp and 12 amp versions. The controller and charger monitor the battery condition and charge it when an electrical outage occurs. The alarm then audibly alerts the homeowner that the unit is in use. The system has built-in protection against overcharging, reverse polarity, short circuits and input overloads, and features a test button to manually run the backup pump for added peace of mind.

The 12 VDC backup sump pump has a durable, non-corrosive housing with stainless steel fasteners for added longevity and provides flow rates of 42-53 gpm. All SPBS Series systems come with a 2-year warranty. For more information, visit
