ISE 2020: SurgeX Introduces Squid Power Management Device

Squid offers boxed network control, remote monitoring, and power protection in a single chassis.

SurgeX has introduced the new Squid power management device at ISE (SurgeX booth 1-F60). Squid streamlines installation, combining multiple features, including boxed networked control and analytics of AC and DC, and front-end protection with SurgeX’s patented Multi-Stage surge suppression technology, as well as monitoring and management capabilities. Squid includes two 5V USB ports inputs for charging and network troubleshooting, eight outputs, four of which are traditional controlled and monitored IEC receptacles, and four are DC so integrators can eliminate the need for wall warts or a two-box solution. By using a relay-based system, the AC and DC ports can be controlled, the device can be monitored, and can be integrated into third party control systems.

SurgeX Squid Power Management

Available in three models for (2) 12V, (2) 24V, and a combination of the two, integrators can use Squid to power small spaces and keep them running smoothly with preventative maintenance, mounting the small device in the rack, behind a flat panel, mounted under a table, or integrated into a table hatch. With built-in autosensing, Squid is also the first SurgeX product with universal compatibility with 120V to 240V, allowing global companies to simplify installations and spec the same product into its offices worldwide.

Squid offers SurgeX Axess ELITE capabilities such as sequencing, scheduling, auto-ping, IP Control, monitoring, and management, helping integrators reduce service calls through proactive management. Squid features built-in diagnostic monitoring, similar to the SurgeX enVision, providing a single solution for management, mitigation, and control of the system’s power.

Squid measures electrical parameters, including voltage, current, power, frequency, power factor, and crest factor, and provides time stamped power quality events, and an internal storage of 30 days’ worth of max/min/average electrical parameters. Squid offers support for all the leading network security protocols, including 802.1x authentication and active directory.

Squid will be available in three models: 12V, 24V, and a combined 12V and 24V model in March 2020. Interested integrators can reach out to their SurgeX representative for pricing and can see Squid live at ISE in the SurgeX booth 1-F60.
