Drivers Deliver Seamless Integration of PDUs With Control4, Crestron, RTI, Savant, and URC Systems for Power Control Over Connected Devices

DRAPER, Utah — July 12, 2018 — Luxul, the leading innovator of IP networking solutions for AV integrators, today announced that drivers for all major control and automation systems are now available for the company’s PDU-2, PDU-8, and PDU-16 intelligent network power distribution units (PDU). The new drivers enable seamless integration of the PDUs into Control4, Crestron, RTI, Savant, and URC systems, allowing any programmable capability to include power control over connected devices.

Developed by RTI, Savant, and Luxul in partnership with Middle Atlantic Products, the drivers allow devices plugged into the PDU-2, PDU-8, and PDU-16 to be powered up or down as part of scheduled and triggered events. In addition, they provide users with convenient outlet control to power-cycle locked-up components locally using hand-held remotes, touch panels, and other controllers or remotely via control-system apps on mobile devices.

“There is a high demand for control over all home and office electronics through one unified system, and with these new drivers, integrators can easily meet this demand by seamlessly integrating our PDU-2, PDU-8, and PDU-16 into the control system of their choice,” said Mike Grubb, vice president of marketing with Luxul. “Now, any programmable capability can include power-cycle control over connected components, whether it’s automatically resetting an Apple TV or scheduling the satellite/cable box to power-cycle on a regular basis.”

The PDU-2 features two individual IP-controllable outlets; the rack-mountable PDU-8 features eight controllable outlets and one noncontrollable convenience outlet; while the PDU-16 offers eight controllable outlets and eight additional noncontrollable outlets. Fast and easy to set up, the Luxul units allow for the local monitoring and rebooting of unresponsive devices, while their self-healing function performs reboots automatically to avoid costly truck rolls and service calls for integrators. Power management features for the PDUs include MOV surge and spike protection for connected equipment in addition to remote sequencing for controlled startup and shutdown.
