Control4 launches Pakedge power control line
Control4 has introduced a range of Pakedge PowerPak power control devices allowing installers to remotely monitor the health of systems.
Designed to reduce onsite service visits to projects by allowing dealers to troubleshoot issues remotely, the PowerPak PDUs offer centralised power control and management with built-in UL1449 surge protection for all equipment in a home.
BakPak-enabled, dealers can monitor and manage PowerPak PDUs for their entire customer base within one interface. The PDUs incorporate SafeStart boot sequencing for defining voltage and current thresholds for connected devices, receiving alerts if a device exceeds these thresholds and may be experiencing issues.
The PowerPak power control line comprises of the PowerPak 8i (featuring 8 outlets with IEC plugs) for international markets and PowerPak 9 (with 9 outlets) for the US and North America.
PowerPak outlets are individually controllable through telnet or web browser, and can also be pre-programmed. A newly developed Control4 driver enables automated and programmed outlet control within a project, allowing dealers to add power control to any device not connected to the network. Locally, PowerPak PDUs self-heal devices that have become non-responsive to network pings by cycling power to a troubled device.
Both the PowerPak 9 and PowerPak 8i are now shipping worldwide.
