Panamax/Furman and Savant Team Up to Create Driver Set for BlueBOLT(R) -Compatible Power Management and UPS Products

TCP/IP and Two-Way Serial Driver Modules Combine Local Control With Cloud-Based Remote Power and Energy Management

PETALUMA, Calif. - - Nov. 10, 2011 - - Panamax/Furman today announced that the company has teamed up with Savant to provide dealers with a set of TCP/IP and two -way RS -232 driver modules for Panamax/Furman BlueBOLT(R) -compatible power management components and UPS solutions. The new modules deliver the best of both worlds for dealers: local control via Savant's control and automation solutions built on the Mac OS(R) X programming language; and remote access through BlueBOLT's cloud -based remote power and energy management platform.


"These new modules make it simple for dealers to integrate the BlueBOLT platform into any Savant control and automation system; and together they make a powerful combination," said Dave Keller, senior vice president of sales and marketing at Panamax/Furman. "Through this partnership, Panamax/Furman and Savant are providing full control over BlueBOLT -compatible solutions on any Savant controller, while drastically reducing service calls through the remote access capabilities of BlueBOLT."

The Panamax M4315 -PRO and M4320 -PRO power management products include both TCP/IP and RS -232 serial control interface cards, allowing dealers to select the interface that best suits their control application. Both interfaces provide control over eight discrete AC outlets with real -time voltage and current feedback, in addition to an internal temperature sensor. If dealers choose to use the preinstalled TCP/IP card in a Savant control environment, BlueBOLT functionality is retained, enabling simple remote access, energy management, optional scheduling of conservation events, email alerts, and even auto -rebooting of connected network devices.

The Furman F1500 and Panamax MB1500 advanced battery -backup solutions include preinstalled two -way serial interface cards, with the option of upgrading to TCP/IP control through the BlueBOLT -CV1 card (sold separately). These feature -rich, BlueBOLT -compatible products offer four outlet control banks, critical and non -critical load -shedding configuration options, and an IR control link for front -projection displays.

ELK Products -C1M1 Dual-Path Alarm Communicators with Remote Services

C1M1 offers a truly significant reduction in transmission time in comparison to other communicators that rely on dial capture or data bus decoding. This can result in quicker response time to emergency situations which could save lives and assets. By providing both IP and cellular pathways, C1M1 provides the reliability installers are looking for in an alarm communicator. C1M1 eliminates port forwarding and extra fees for remote access. Installers can remotely upload/download programming changes to M1 controls over IP or cellular using ElkRP2. Consumers can control the M1 remotely via the free ElkLink mobile app and web portal, as well as eKeypad and M1 Touch Pro apps. Other IP-based software and interface partners can connect to the M1 control over the local network through C1M1. C1M1 also provides email/text notifications for arm, disarm, and alarm events. ELK-C1M14GSM supports GSM (AT&T/T-Mobile) networks and ELK-C1M1CDMA supports CDMA (Verizon) networks.
