|On the heels of the launch of its Contractor Series of AC power management solutions for audio profesionals at Winter NAMM show 2012, Panamax/Furman will be showcasing its full line of commercial and residential products at ISE (Integrated Systems Europe) 2012 in Amsterdam, stand 1N80, including the first power management solution for the EMEA market to be compatible with the company’s BlueBolt hosted remote power and energy management platform: the CN-3600S E SmartSequencer.
The CN-3600S E (220V-240V, 16A capacity) combines AC power distribution, protection, filtration, and sequential system power on/off in a 1-RU rack-mount unit. Featuring Furman’s SmartSequencing technology, the CN-3600S E allows large and complex A/V systems to be safely powered on and off with a simple press of a button or turn of a key, even by non-technical personnel. SmartSequencing’s bidirectional communications between installed units enables a primary unit to control and sequence multiple secondary units, ensuring multizone electronic systems are powered on and off safely and dependably from a single control point across an entire installation. The CN-3600S E features eight rear-panel IEC C-13 outlets arranged in four adjustable delay-sequence banks, in addition to one front-panel IEC C-13 outlet. The unit ships with a detachable IEC-C19 female-to-Schuko-male power cord, with other cord options available.
Multiple units can be connected via current loop at runs of more than 1,000 feet with full backward compatibility with Furman’s legacy sequencers. The CN-3600S E provides Furman’s SMP, EVS, and LiFT protection and filtration technologies.
The CN-3600S E is equipped with an RS-232 port and command set for integration with control systems. An optional RS-232-to-Ethernet adaptor allows the unit to be controlled, programmed, and monitored from a smartphone, tablet, PC, or any Web-enabled device via Telnet, direct HTTP connection, or the BlueBolt platform. Connecting the CN-3600S E to BlueBolt enables integrators to reboot problem components remotely to address a myriad of common system issues immediately ranging from locked up components to bad communications handshakes. Powerful features for installers include email alerts when power anomalies occur; scheduled commands for power-up, power-down, or power-cycling of outlets; monitoring of incoming voltage in near-real time or over history; and auto-reboot functionality to resolve networking equipment lock-ups automatically. In addition, BlueBolt provides a future-proof solution as clients become more concerned with energy management. BlueBOLT offers a variety of features designed to monitor energy use closely, eliminate standby power, and enable automated load-shedding.
The CN-3600S E will begin shipping in Q1 2012.
“We captivated ISE 2011 with a demonstration of BlueBolt, and this year we’re ecstatic to introduce our first power management solution for countries using 220V to 240V to offer connectivity to the platform," said Dave Keller, senior vice president of sales and marketing, Panamax/Furman. "The CN-3600S E SmartSequencer is already an amazing product by combining power distribution, protection, filtration, and sequential system power on/off in one compact unit. Connecting it to BlueBOLT, however, takes its capabilities to an entirely new level; allowing integrators to improve customer service and reduce service calls, while providing their clients with a powerful tool for monitoring and managing their energy consumption. Many of our European customers have been eager to begin incorporating BlueBolt into their installations.”
