Extron has announced the introduction of the IPL EXP PDU8L, a new control system power expansion interface designed to provide centralized 12-volt DC power management, monitoring, and temperature sensing.
The IPL EXP PDU8L is stated to deliver 60 watts across eight individually controllable outputs, is Ethernet enabled, and offers the ability to monitor power consumption while providing a temperature port and thermistor probe for tracking temperature conditions of any ambient air space or device. It’s designed to be used with an IPCP Pro xi Series control processor for encrypted power control of attached devices, and can also operate independently using a secure Extron API to enable integration for specialized applications or direct control via the built-in web page.
“We are excited to offer another next generation power controller to our customers,” says Casey Hall, chief marketing officer for Extron. “These compact interfaces can be used with any IPCP Pro xi Series control processor or can also function as stand-alone devices for power management, providing even greater flexibility for system designs.”
The IPL EXP PDU8L is housed in a compact 1U quarter rack enclosure that offers a variety of mounting options, including mounting directly to Extron basic, universal rack shelf products, or behind a display.
