Ion Products Announces Latest in Battery Backup Systems

Romeoville, Ill. (August 6, 2014) – Metropolitan Industries and its Ion Products brand announced today the latest version of Sumpro® availability, an intelligent battery backup system with premier fully automatic auxiliary power source. Performance-tested for optimal functionality, Sumpro® systems can be used in conjunction with pumps with a variety of horsepower ratings. The Sumpro® has delivered dependability for over 20 years and has become a favorite among contractors, plumbers and homeowners around the country.

With the latest technology and a smaller footprint, the updated Sumpro® provides even more dependability. New features include an LED screen, which displays critical system information, an improved charging circuit, alarm contact for remote monitoring and notification and more. Metropolitan has also developed a new line of batteries which, when combined with the new version of Sumpro®, will give users an increase in run time by 25 percent.

Sumpro® systems install in minutes as users simply plug units into a standard dedicated wall outlet. When a power failure is detected, Sumpro® will automatically supply standard household electricity to any connected appliance until utility power is restored.

Continuing Metropolitan’s commitment to energy efficiency and the environment, the new Sumpro® offers users the ability to work in conjunction with the latest green technologies including both solar and wind inputs adding to the diversity of the product.

In addition, the Ion® Stormpro® residential flood control series and residential division offers the Ion system solution, which includes battery backup systems, pumps, float switches and pump controllers needed for complete flood protection.
