Panamax/Furman has teamed up with Remote Technologies Incorporated (RTI) to create two-way drivers for the XP-8 remote control processor, providing integration of the BlueBOLT-compatible M4315/4320-PRO power conditioners and MB1500 UPS into RTI control systems for two-way power management control and real-time power monitoring.
Developed through RTI’s Integration Partner Program, the new two-way drivers allow integrators to implement Panamax/Furman’s M4315/4320-PRO power conditioners or MB1500 UPS easily into any RTI control system utilizing the XP-8 processor.
Supporting both IP and RS-232 control, the drivers allow users to shut off outlets or banks that are not in use to eliminate wasteful stand-by power and hard-reboot problem devices in the system through the intuitive RTI interface. Visual feedback of line voltage, current draw, and power breaker status, displayed on an RTI handheld or in-wall controller, provides a valuable diagnostic tool to ensure that current draw is not excessive or abnormally high or low.
In addition to RTI control, the M4315/4320-PRO and MB1500 UPS offer complete and simultaneous cloud-based remote control and energy management functionality via Panamax/Furman’s exclusive BlueBOLT platform.
With BlueBOLT, integrators can remotely reboot problem components online without the time and expense of a service call, allowing them to immediately address a myriad of common system issues ranging from locked up components to bad communication handshakes. As a hosted service, the platform is continuously updated with new features, and may be accessed anywhere from any Web-enabled device, including smartphones and tablet computers.
