PETALUMA, Calif. - - Jan. 25, 2011 - - Panamax today announced that its M4315 -PRO power conditioner featuring BlueBOLT(R) capability was named a 2011 Product of the Year in the "Power Management, Conditioning, and Back Up" category by Electronic House magazine. Presented at the 2011 International CES, Product of the Year winners - - an exclusive group of products deemed the most noteworthy for 2011 - - were chosen by an unbiased judging panel of industry experts, integrators, and the editors of Electronic House and CE Pro. Criteria included creativity, innovation, incorporated equipment, obstacles overcome, aesthetics, and lifestyle benefits.
"While the M4315 -PRO provides Panamax's trusted AC protection and filtering technologies, what truly sets it apart from our other products is BlueBOLT functionality. With the M4315 -PRO, integrators benefit from time and money saved from reduced service calls, while their clients enjoy the peace of mind of a protected A/V system with true energy monitoring and management functionality," said Dave Keller, senior vice president of sales and marketing for Panamax/Furman. "2011 is going to be a big year for our BlueBOLT platform, and we are very excited to kick it off with a prestigious Product of the Year award for our M4315 -PRO."
The Panamax M4315 -PRO power conditioner takes the category of power management to a new level, offering full cloud -based remote control and energy management functionality via Panamax/Furman's exclusive BlueBOLT platform. With BlueBOLT, integrators can remotely reboot problem components without the time and expense of a service call. Since control is at the outlet level, BlueBOLT's control functionality allows full hard -reboots to immediately address a myriad of common system issues ranging from locked up components to bad communications handshakes. As a hosted service, the platform is continuously updated with new features, and may be accessed anywhere from any Web -enabled device, including smartphones and tablet computers.
Additionally, BlueBOLT's robust energy management features provide integrators with tremendous added value for any installed system. Full energy monitoring is reported historically and in real time, including energy consumption of connected equipment in watts, kWh, and dollars. The integrator or end user can set up energy -saving commands such as scheduled conservation in non -use hours, and budget alerts via e -mail when nearing or exceeding a pre -set energy usage threshold.
Engineered for professional integrators, the M4315 -PRO features eight rear -panel AC outlets with catastrophic surge/spike protection, over/under voltage protection, and Linear Filtering Technology (LiFT) for an optimized A/V experience. The unit includes the BlueBOLT -CV1 communications card with CAT5 connector as well as a standard two -way RS -232 communication card for remote control of all eight individual rear panel outlets, enabling installers to integrate the product with a control system.
The M4315 -PRO is available now at an MSRP of $649.95.
