Eagan, Minn. - Capitol, the CE distributor for residential systems and light commercial contractors, has received certification on Panamax and Furman BlueBolt power- and energy-management product lines.
Capitol said it is the first national distributor to be certified on the power platforms.
BlueBolt provides hosted IP power control and energy monitoring for A/V systems. Users can control BlueBolt-equipped units through Panamax/Furman's hosted BlueBolt servers for plug-and-play setup (secured with SSL Extended Verification), or, if preferred, via direct connection over Telnet or HTTP using the BlueBolt-CV1's embedded Web server.
"BlueBolt is the perfect example of how newly developed IP technologies are helping installers and end users maximize energy efficiency without missing a beat," said Jeff Kussard, Capitol's strategic development director. "We are proud to offer what will undoubtedly prove to be one of the most important energy-management solutions in the residential and light commercial markets."
Dave Keller, sales and marketing senior VP for Panamax/Furman, cited Capitol's ability to understand its customers' needs and provide the best solutions to support them. "They know that there is a tremendous amount of additional value for the installer by not only increasing their ability to respond to service issues quickly and remotely, but by providing valuable information regarding energy usage and power quality to both the installer and their client," he said.
