ESP/SurgeX introduced its Axess Elite web-enabled mains conditioning and energy management system for the 16 amp CEE7/7 and 10 amp AS3112 international electrical standards at ISE this week. Available in Q2 2015, the Axess Elite is one of the first IP-enabled smart energy solutions to carry these standards and it addresses a growing demand for connected products internationally.
Combining surge elimination with advanced mains management capabilities, the SurgeX Axess Elite also provides remote monitoring and control of power distribution platforms across multiple sites simultaneously. Custom settings, scheduling, and on/off controls can be configured on individual outlets. Custom sequences can be created across the entire network with e-mail notifications sent about different issues based on user-defined conditions.
“SurgeX has engineered the most comprehensive remote energy management and power protection solution available for the global market,” said Shannon Townley, President, SurgeX. “Axess Elite consolidates energy monitoring, power management, and consumption while providing surge protection from a single, rack-mountable device. This solves a big problem for integrators and their customers.”
The Axess Elite features the core technology behind the SurgeX brand: Advanced Series Mode (ASM) Surge Elimination Technology. The SurgeX patented Advanced Series Mode Surge Elimination Technology is completely non-sacrificial and eliminates surge energy without producing harmful side effects such as ground contamination or common-mode disturbances. This proprietary technology protects AV equipment from power disturbances that can disrupt sound quality and digital performance, and provides a professional grade power protection product line that is more robust thantraditional surge suppression products.
The Axess Elite also comes equipped with the Axess Manager and Axess Manager Mobile, new desktop and mobile apps designed to let users monitor power conditions and control power functions of multiple installations from a single location. Integrators using Axess Manager in multiple locations will appreciate the single interface and the ability to uniquely classify and manage each installation. The streamlined approach makes it easy to identify power-related issues quickly and allows for simple navigation and management of existing installs, especially when new devices and systems are constantly being added to the network.
SurgeX will be demoing the Axess Elite at Stand 7-T180 at the Integrated Systems Europe Show.
