Luxul has announced that drivers for all major control and automation systems are now available for the company’s PDU-2, PDU-8, and PDU-16 intelligent network power distribution units (PDU). The new drivers enable integration of the PDUs into Control4, Crestron, RTI, Savant, and URC systems, allowing any programmable capability to include power control over connected devices.
Developed by RTI, Savant, and Luxul in partnership with Middle Atlantic Products, the drivers allow devices plugged into the PDU-2, PDU-8, and PDU-16 units to be powered up or down as part of scheduled and triggered events. In addition, they provide users with outlet control to power-cycle locked-up components locally using handheld remotes, touch panels, and other controllers or remotely via control-system apps on mobile devices.
The PDU-2 features two individual IP-controllable outlets; the rack-mountable PDU-8 features eight controllable outlets and one non-controllable convenience outlet; and the PDU-16 offers eight controllable outlets and eight additional non-controllable outlets. The Luxul units allow for the local monitoring and rebooting of unresponsive devices, while their self-healing function performs reboots automatically to avoid costly truck rolls and service calls for integrators. Power management features for the PDUs include MOV surge and spike protection for connected equipment in addition to remote sequencing for controlled startup and shutdown.
