RGB appointed as UK distributor for GUDE Systems

GUDE Systems, manufacturer of high-quality, reliable, and cost-effective power distribution units (PDUs) and monitoring solutions, has announced that it has selected RGB Communications as its exclusive UK distributor.

Developed and manufactured at its family run headquarters in Germany, GUDE’s products range includes PDUs with switchable power outlets, remote monitoring systems, and radio time receivers for AV and commercial environments.

Once operating, GUDE PDUs and remote monitoring solutions bring multiple benefits, including power-cycling (reboot) of connected devices which can help applications to get back up and running when they have hung up. This can be done either automatically via watchdog monitoring or by remote access via the integrated web application and mobile app. In addition, power and residual current monitoring prevents critical system states in the installation.

The devices also bring operational safety through short-circuit fuses per output (eFuse) prevent damage to other loads. An integrated type 3 surge protection also ensures greater operational safety.

Its integrated energy meters offer precise measurement of power consumption and enable the exploitation of energy and cost saving potentials. Additionally, the IP power distributors occupy only one height unit in the rack for space saving benefits and will allow the direct connection of many IT and AV devices.

Another benefit is that they allow monitoring of temperature, humidity and air pressure in the installation environment through additional cable sensors. This allows critical conditions to be avoided in advance through preventative measures.

“We are proud to have RGB Communications as our new partner on board,” said Philipp Gude, sales manager at GUDE Systems GmbH. “I am sure that with this renowned AV distributor we are living up to our mission: Everyone in the AV world should have easy access to quality hardware made in Germany. And with RGB Communications, customers benefit from short delivery times thanks to our UK warehouse.”

Caroline Britt, RGB’s managing director added: “GUDE’s innovative product range perfectly complements RGB’s existing infrastructure portfolio in both the residential and commercial markets. Their shared values for providing the best-in-class customer service and technical support also ensures that we can continue to offer our customers the highest quality training and support in infrastructure solutions, too.”

RGB will showcase a range of GUDE devices on its stand at EI Live! from the 29-30 September at the Farnborough Exhibition Centre on stand 93.
