Brea, CA – April 2010… Altinex, the leading manufacturer of Modular AV Signal Management Solutions™, is pleased to introduce the new AC301-102 and AC301-106 power sensors/controllers. Designed for use with the company’s Neutron Series controllers (the CP500-100 Controller and the CP500-110 Mini-Controller), the new AC301-102/106 power sensors/controllers dramatically increase the operating efficiency of the most sophisticated boardrooms, presentation spaces, lecture halls, residential control systems, and operations centers.
The new Altinex AC301-102/106 power sensors/controllers enable the Altinex Neutron controllers to remotely control the AC power applied to a single audiovisual device as well as monitor the power consumption of the device. The AC301-102 has a NEMA male connector on the supply side with a NEMA female connector on the output while the AC301-106 has an IEC male connector on the supply side and an IEC female connector on the output. These power sensors/controllers turn power on and off by switching the live line through an internal relay.
The Altinex AC301-102/106 power sensors/controllers are the perfect solution for maximizing the operating efficiency of connected equipment in presentation spaces and similar environments. An AC301-102/106 can be used to sense the power consumption of certain devices, such as a projector, DVD player, or other unit— notifying the Neutron controller that all connected components are ready and accessible.
Similarly, the AC301-102/106 can serve as a controller to either turn the power to a particular device on or off. By using an AC301-102/106 in conjunction with a proximity sensor in “green” learning or presentation spaces, equipment and lights can automatically be turned off after a specified period of inactivity—dramatically saving power while reducing operating expenses.
Phil Hale, Altinex Vice President of Sales and Marketing, commented on the company’s new AC301-102 and AC301-106 power sensors/controllers. “The AC301-102 and AC301-106 are the perfect accessory items for our Neutron controller line,” says Hale. “With the ability to sense changes in pre-defined current levels and respond accordingly, these units can enable or disable equipment as required—ensuring that all aspects of an AV system operate at peak efficiency while conserving power during down time. The AC301-102/106 simultaneously help ensure the life, or longevity, of the connected equipment while helping to contain operating expenses. These aspects alone enable the new AC301-102/106 power sensors/controllers to provide exceptional return on investment.”
The Altinex AC301-102 and AC301-106 power sensors/controllers carry a MSRP of $245.00 and $255.00 respectively. They are available now.
