Higher-Density 48-, 66-, and 84-Slot Panels Accommodate Additional Circuits, Saving Valuable Wall Space
LENEXA, Kan. — Aug. 27, 2015 — LynTec, a leading manufacturer of innovative electrical power control solutions for professional audio, video, and lighting systems, today announced it has added three new circuit count panels to its RPC line of remote-control breaker panels. The new panels make it possible for LynTec customers to add more circuits to their designs in the same horizontal wall space to control a greater number of components, as needed.
“Space is always at a premium in electrical closets, which are usually too small to begin with. That’s why we made a point of adding higher-density panels to our offering as soon as the electrical codes would allow it,” said Mark Bishop, president of LynTec. “By adding higher-count circuit breaker panels, you get more circuit breakers in each panel, which can reduce the total number of panels that have to be installed. This not only saves space but also gives customers the opportunity to control more elements, such as videowalls and digital signage. Having more breakers per panel also reduces installation labor.”
Taking advantage of a change in the National Electrical Code that removed the prohibition of more than 42 circuit breakers in a single panel, LynTec expanded its RPC panel lineup to support 48, 66, and 84 circuit breaker positions, respectively. Previously, RPC panels were available only with 30 or 42 circuit breaker slots. Now customers have incremental options between the 30- and 84-position panels with no increase in width. All RPC panels leverage the RPC controller’s ability to address up to 168 motorized circuit breakers. The new panels are also available as Main Lug Only (MLO) and Main Circuit Breaker (MCB) in 225-, 400- and 600-amp interiors.
LynTec’s 48-, 66-, and 84-slot RPC panels are available now. More information on LynTec’s full line of products is available at www.LynTec.com.
