LynTec XPC Series Wins Innovative Product Award
LynTec, a manufacturer of electrical power control solutions for professional audio, video, and lighting (AVL) systems, announced that its new Xtend Power Control (XPC) series won a Sound & Video Contractor 2019 Innovative Product Award.
The XPC remote relay modules and stand-alone controller add virtually unlimited flexibility to the company’s extensive power control options. The Innovative Product Awards are selected for inclusion by a panel of judges and editors, experts in the pro-AV industry, and then voted on by the readership of the magazine.
“We’re very proud to have the XPC recognized as an Innovative Product,” said Mark Bishop, president of LynTec. “Like the NPAC before it, this family of products is a direct response to the customers’ needs and requests for a power control system that is deployable anywhere in an installation, with the ability to run the entire remote relay line from a single UI. We’re deeply grateful to the readership for their votes and excited to keep building solutions that overcome the challenges presented by new and legacy AVL systems.”
LynTec’s new XPC remote relay modules extend beyond the traditional reach of the company’s relay panels and motorized circuit breakers. Enclosed in a metal cube, they can be placed anywhere: in the rack, on rigging, behind line arrays or anywhere equipment is located.
Each module contains an electrical connection, a power plug, and an Ethernet port. Integration is simple and straightforward: connect the module to a power source and the network, and then plug in the equipment that needs power control. Using LynTec’s IP-based GUI, users can set up and customize the control and sequencing for each device. The family includes:
- XRM 20 Relay Module: a stand-alone 20-amp cube enclosure with two independent relays to control the two onboard duplex plugs.
- XRM 30 Relay Module: a stand-alone 30-amp cube enclosure with a single relay switch that controls a single 30A L5-30 receptacle.
- XRS 20 Rack Sequencer: a 1RU rack-mounted enclosure powered from a 20-amp circuit to provide control to three duplex receptacles, each of which has its own relay switch for onboard sequencing.
- XRS 80 Rack Sequencer: a hard-wired vertical rack-mounted strip that can manage up to four 20-amp circuits that power four corresponding duplexes, each with its own relay switch to provide onboard control.
The XPC stand-alone controller offers LynTec’s RPC control solution, which previously was available only in LynTec’s RPC series motorized circuit breaker panel, RPCM mobile distro, RPCR wall-mounted relay panel, or NPAC rack-mounted relay panel. Now customers can take advantage of all the capabilities and features of the RPC controller they’re already familiar with, but in a stand-alone 1RU rack-mounted enclosure. This eliminates the costs of purchasing preconfigured controllable circuit breakers or relays and provides customers with a way to operate one or more remotely placed relay module spread out over an extended area or venue.
The controller can control lighting and AV systems across multiple control zones and protocols, and offers customizable step rates and delay settings for sequencing, load shedding at the circuit level for emergency off, auto-on for egress lighting, a built-in timer for automated control, and more.
In addition to offering onboard control options, the XPC controller interfaces with any third-party control system that communicates with Telnet, HTTP, DMX512, sACN or contact closure signals.
