AMX offers power with control

AMX is turning its attention to energy management, introducing the NetLinx Power Management Power Distribution Unit (NXA-PDU-1508-8).

The 1RU rack-mounted NetLinx PDU monitors energy consumption of each connected component, and restricts power to any or all devices when not in use. It has eight individually monitored and controlled AC outlets, built-in 12-volt power supply, two sets of four AxLink Bus Strips and power monitoring for each outlet.

Operational advantages include the capability to individually control devices down to plug-level for remote re-booting. The NetLinx PDU also features a sensor, which can monitor temperature in the rack to prevent potential overheating situations.
