RPCM is Industry’s First Intelligent Mobile Power Distro Panel Offering
Three Distinct Features
LENEXA, Kan. — Nov. 13, 2013 — LynTec, a leading manufacturer of customized electrical power control for professional audio, video, and lighting systems, today introduced its new Remote Power Control Mobile (RPCM) — the first intelligent power distribution panel to bring three distinct new features to the mobile power distribution market. With motorized circuit breakers, current monitoring at the branch circuit level, and remote monitoring capabilities, the RPCM brings smarter mobile power distribution to houses of worship, theaters, arenas/stadiums, and other temporary entertainment venues. Making its debut at LDI 2013 in Las Vegas Nov. 22-24, LynTec will offer working demonstrations of the RPCM at booth 1367.
“We are thrilled to introduce our groundbreaking RPCM mobile power distro at LDI 2013,” said 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.”
An industry breakthrough, 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 solutions, 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.
LynTec’s RPCM is available now. More information on RPCM and LynTec’s full line of products is available at www.LynTec.com.
