LynTec Adds Android Application for Circuit Monitoring & Control
February 15, 2012 - Lenexa, KS - LynTec, the leading provider of
controllable circuit breaker panels for the A/V/L industry announces
the availability of its Android based application to round out its full
line of mobile solutions for the RPC power control platform.
Based on the overwhelmingly positive response to their Apple applications released in 2011, LynTec has developed an Android app for this popular platform. The app enables users to turn on or off pre-established circuit "zones", control individual circuits, and to monitor the status of the panel.
AV, audio, video and lighting system operators appreciate the app for its ability to immediately identify tripped circuits and to perform remote hard reboots when a device becomes non-responsive (e.g. intelligent light fixtures).
The RPC, originally designed to be integrated with and controlled by any 'master control' platform (e.g. AMX, Crestron, Extron, ETC, Strand, etc.), now provides designers with a direct control option. Designers can use the built-in web server on the RPC control board as the gateway to preprogram the zoning with a browser, and then operate and monitor the system on their Android (or Apple) phone or tablet.
Mark Bishop, President of LynTec comments, "With our built in web server, the RPC is the easiest power panel platform to program in the industry...period. And system integration is simple with our pre-built hooks for RS-232, TCP/IP or DMX protocols." He adds, "The App then, is the option to control the platform yourself, using contact closures or the Smart device WITHOUT an overriding control platform in place."
The features of the app also allow for easy and simplified control of lighting circuits which can help with managing and monitoring energy savings. The company provides a short video of the app on its YouTube site at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3Cf2b5zNuSg.
The product will be showcased at the upcoming PLASA 2012 event in Austin, Texas - February 22-23 and will become an integral part in all future booth demonstrations including LynTec's show line up for InfoComm12.
Power Control Simplified
LynTec brings to market electrical protection and circuit switching capabilities in the same enclosures. In doing so, the company has always found ways to save space, lower system installation costs and build trusted relationships with audio system and lighting designers. It's expansion into electrical and lighting controls, and now its growth into expanded lighting control, energy monitoring, built in power conditioning, and mobile applications continues to position the company as a leading resource for the AV and lighting industries and an integral partner for sustainable energy practices.
