LynTec, a manufacturer of customized electrical power control equipment for professional video, audio and lighting systems, will show its Remote Power Control Mobile (RPCM) power distribution panel at PLASA Focus in Baltimore next month.
The RPCM was designed for temporary live events in venues such as stadiums and other venues. It provides direct on/off control for LED lighting and takes loads out of standby mode by directly shutting down circuits — reducing energy and system maintenance costs and facilitating more sustainable setups — within a portable roadcase design.
The RPCM’s switch-grade motorized circuit breakers provide remotely managed electrical protection and on/off control within a single enclosure. In addition, the unit offers current monitoring at the branch circuit level to enable real-time current draw on a branch breaker, phase or panel basis.
A built-in Web server enables users to monitor and control distribution with ease, directly on the network, from a Web interface on any browser-enabled smart device. The RPCM also interfaces with most third-party control systems using IP, DMX and sACN protocols.
Also on display at PLASA Focus will be LynTec’s Remote Power Controller (RPC) series panel version 2 combines the latest motorized breaker technology with a new and improved controller featuring more memory, a faster processor for real-time monitoring down to the circuit level and the capacity to use multiple control protocols simultaneously. It now includes sACN.
These new features complement the device’s onboard server with network or smart-device access, load-specified switch-grade motorized circuit breakers, built-in auto-off brownout protection using controlled circuit breaker shutdown and restart, optional sequential circuit level on/off capabilities and the ability to interface with third-party control systems via contact closure, TCP/IP, DMX or RS-232.
LynTec will display its RPCR relay panel, built specifically for the entertainment industry. Based on LynTec’s popular RPC series panel, the RPCR brings branch circuit control and monitoring to any existing breaker panel, regardless of brand, make or model.
The unit combines relay functionality with a built-in Web server to provide remote electrical control to applications, including LED lighting, powered amplifiers and energy management programs.
Additionally, a Web-enabled browser-based interface allows users to set up, troubleshoot, control and monitor relay status remotely across existing networks. It allows more efficient power management from any computer, tablet or handheld smart device.
The show runs May 8-9 at the Reitz Arena of Loyola University Maryland in Baltimore.
