LynTec has introduced the new Remote Power Control Mobile (RPCM), the first intelligent power distribution panel to bring three distinct new features to mobile power distribution, including motorized circuit breakers, current monitoring at the branch circuit level, and remote monitoring capabilities.
Attendees of the upcoming LDI 2013 show in Las Vegas (Nov. 22-24) can get working demonstrations of the new RPCM at booth 1367.
“We are thrilled to introduce our groundbreaking RPCM mobile power distro at LDI 2013,” states Mark Bishop, president of LynTec. “Fully satisfied with the features and performance of our popular RPC installed panels, our customers have demanded the same forward-thinking functionalities within a portable solution. The RPCM is the result of listening to these requests, and there is nothing else like it on the market.”
Specifically, the RPCM uses switch-grade motorized circuit breakers to provide electrical protection and on/off control within a single enclosure, enabling simple power distribution and control for production companies within large, live venues.
To enable real-time load balance and notification alarms, the unit provides the ability to perform current monitoring at the branch circuit level. Circuits can also be turned on or off sequentially, providing significant benefits when being powered by a generator.
A built-in Web server allows users to monitor and control distribution directly on the network or from any browser-enabled smart device.
To protect large events during demanding load mixing situations, the RPCM lets users monitor loads on specific circuits. As a result, they can immediately see the impact of added demand on the unit’s interface — providing a straightforward and complete data overview.
The RPCM is programmable to send circuit alerts by text or email, allowing users to take action remotely for greater flexibility and more efficient energy control, including the ability to perform remote hard reboots of connected devices. For increased space and cost savings, the circuit breaker panel can also be used for remote on/off control.
As lighting professionals increasingly turn to LED, the RPCM can be used to control non-dimmed circuits as a more efficient alternative to dimmers. Since dimming is performed directly within LED fixtures, traditional on/off control at the dimmer rack-level is eliminated, resulting in the need for circuit-based on/off control.
Available as a custom-built box, the RPCM can also be used with third-party control systems using DMX, sACN, or TCP/IP protocols to provide flexible interfacing with all popular platforms.
