Panamax/Furman and Crestron Introduce New TCP/IP and Two-Way Serial Driver Modules for BlueBOLT(R)-Compatible Power Management and UPS Products

PETALUMA, Calif. — Sept. 6, 2011 — Panamax/Furman is announcing, as an advancement of their ongoing partnership with Crestron, a suite of TCP/IP and two-way serial driver modules for Panamax/Furman BlueBOLT(R)-compatible power management products and UPS solutions. Blending the point-of-use local control provided by Crestron’s control and automation systems with BlueBOLT’s cloud-based remote power and energy management platform, the new modules empower dealers with unprecedented functionality and accessibility to their installed systems.

The Panamax M4315-PRO and M4320-PRO power management products include both TCP/IP and RS-232 serial control interface cards, allowing dealers to select the interface that best suits their control application. Both interfaces provide control over eight discrete AC outlets with real-time voltage and current feedback, in addition to an internal temperature sensor. If dealers choose to use the preinstalled TCP/IP interface card with a Crestron control system, BlueBOLT functionality is retained, enabling simple remote access, energy management, optional scheduling of conservation events, email alerts, and even auto-rebooting of connected network devices.

The Furman F1500 and Panamax MB1500 advanced battery-backup solutions include preinstalled two-way serial interface cards, with the option of upgrading to TCP/IP control through the BlueBOLT-CV1 card (sold separately). These feature-rich, BlueBOLT-compatible products offer four outlet control banks, critical and non-critical load-shedding configuration options, and an IR control link for front-projection displays.

“The new driver modules for our BlueBOLT-compatible power management and UPS products provide dealers and their clients with the ultimate in convenience and accessibility,” said Dave Keller, senior vice president of sales and marketing at Panamax/Furman. “Easy integration with Crestron’s control and automation systems allows access to the full functionality for these solutions via a Crestron touch panel. When combined with BlueBOLT remote power and energy management features, individual outlets or outlet banks can be controlled from any Web browser or Web-enabled mobile device, drastically reducing service calls.”

The drivers are available from Crestron’s Integrated Partner Program website at http://www.crestron.com/partnerships/integrated_partner_program/.
