Use Next Gen AV Power Management with Extron Control Systems

Posted on 02 November 2021

We are pleased to introduce the IPL EXP PDU4H control system power expansion interface that provides centralized power management for small to medium sized AV systems. It delivers the ability to control individual AC outputs remotely and allows for aggregate current sensing. The IPL EXP PDU4H is Ethernet enabled and features four AC outputs, four manual control ports, and a relay for additional system support. It is designed to be used with an IPCP Pro xi Series control processor for secure, encrypted power control of attached devices. It can also operate independently using a secure Extron API, enabling seamless integration for specialized applications. The IPL EXP PDU4H is housed in a compact 1U half rack enclosure that offers a broad variety of mounting options.

 AV Power Management

Feature Highlights

Works in three modes of operation for system design flexibility

Secure Platform Device allows for secure, encrypted AV control interface for management from all Extron IPCP Pro xi Series control processors
Independent operation using a secure Extron API allows for compatibility with control systems within a secure Ethernet environment
Four manual control contact closure ports for power management directly from the rear of the control system expansion interface

Supports Worldwide Power Requirements

* Provides four independent 100/240 VAC, 12/10A max, IEC female outlets

Powerful reporting and troubleshooting

* When used with an Extron control system, aggregate current sensing can be used for monitoring power consumption of connected devices

Extra Protection for your powered products

*  Multiple, single stage MOVs provide surge protection allowing for up to 1,750 Joules of protection for attached devices
*  24V relay can be tied to a control system for voltage threshold alarms
*  12A circuit breaker button for over current protection

Power up Sequencing

* In the event of power loss and restart, power outlet receptacles can be powered on sequentially with a user-configurable delay between each one preventing a power overload spike and a blown fuse or tripped circuit breaker from occurring.
