This page is about hooking up AC and DC power to the Meanwell and tuning it's output to the appropriate 14.2V for our backup circuit. Specifications for the Meanwell RS-15-15 are available at

This process needs to be handled very carefully as 110VAC is dangerous.
I am not qualified to describe this at all and I'm completely unfamiliar with the wiring requirements outside the USA. Please consult local information to determine if you can safely and legally use this kind of power supply.
Even inside the USA, I'm not qualified to do anything like this, much less advise you to do it. Proceed at your own risk.
Please be prepared to survive screwing up, and then do not screw up. Check and doublecheck.
