LynTec, a leading manufacturer of customized electrical power control for installed audio, video, and lighting systems, today announced the availability of its RPC (Remote Power Controller) Series Panel version 2. RPC v2 is designed to facilitate system build-outs by accelerating the design and installation process as well as decreasing operating costs.

The update combines the latest generation of motorized circuit breaker technology with a new and improved controller, featuring more memory and a faster processor for real-time monitoring down to the circuit level and the capacity to use multiple control protocols simultaneously — now including sACN.

Engineered to protect and control installed entertainment AVL systems, LynTec's RPC v2 provides increased memory capacity and faster internal processing. The controller is available across the entire RPC product line, enabling users to experience familiar point-and-click installation and setup with the company's motorized circuit breaker panels, retrofit relay panels, and mobile power distribution panels. The RPC v2 also features two important market firsts: the capacity to use multiple control protocols simultaneously and an emergency auto-on function to activate egress lighting via contact closure inputs from fire alarms.

"Before the update, using multiple protocols simultaneously within a single panel was very difficult," said Mark Bishop, president of LynTec. "With RPC version 2, we've revolutionized AVL power control by creating the ultimate, all-in-one panel for simpler operation and deployments, giving our customers faster processing times, more protocol options, and the ability to monitor current draws in real time on any browser-enabled device."

The RPC controller features an onboard server that is accessible on a network or from any smart device as well as motorized circuit breakers that can be loaded per specific user requirements. The device also includes built-in auto-off and brownout features that allow controlled shutdown and restart of circuit breakers, optional sequential on/off at the circuit level, and the ability for third-party control directly from systems via TCP/IP, DMX, RS-232, sACN, or contact closures.

As of November 2013, customers ordering an RPC panel, RPCR relay panel, or RPCM mobile power distro panel will automatically receive the RPC v2 upgrade. More information on LynTec and the company's full line of products is available at www.LynTec.com.
