LynTec announces the addition of Telnet control to the company’s complete line of RPC series power control panels. Telnet expands RPC’s interface options, strengthening the lineup’s onboard monitoring and control capabilities from any remote location.
“Installations are moving toward a shared Ethernet backbone, and we added Telnet to the TCP/IP protocol to meet the need for simple monitoring and control over the network,” says Mark Bishop, president of LynTec. “As a manufacturer, we have the most choices for control of any remote power panel’s standard offering.”
Telnet is a well-established data transfer protocol for transmitting serial data commands over Ethernet networks. This industry accepted protocol joins streaming ACN (PLASA E1.31) and HTTP GET commands as IP-based controls for RPC remote controlled power panels. RPC panels also accept RS-232 serial, DMX-512 and contact closures as control inputs, offering a very flexible self-contained platform for power control applications.
