SurgeX Announces Axess Ready, IP Integration of Existing Products

SurgeX upgrades its existing power management and protection products with network connectivity, highlighted by a web interface for remote access and management.

Zebulon, NC - August 29, 2012 - SurgeX, the leader in surge elimination and energy intelligence, is proud to announce Axess Ready - a new line of IP enabled surge eliminators. By adding its award-winning Axess IP technology to core SurgeX products, Axess Ready products provide integrators with an IP enabled product for every budget. SurgeX now allows AV integrators to offer a similar experience with existing products, or a more sophisticated power management and protection system when combined with Axess or Axess Elite products. With Axess Ready, integrators now have a complete line of IP integrated surge eliminators, from stand-alone solutions up through our NEMA panels.


Axess Ready products are fully equipped with IP network connectivity, no additional hardware needed. Once connected, a web interface acts as the control and monitoring dashboard providing a number of useful power management functions. Schedules can be created with single or multiple conditions to conserve energy by powering down equipment when not in use. Installers can also remotely reboot connected equipment in real time if a problem is identified, or schedule a shutdown at a pre-determined time. Axess Ready technology can also automatically power cycle locked up gear, saving integrators a truck roll.

SurgeX residential power products that are now Axess Ready include the XF2-AR FlatPak and the XS10-AR. Professional power products available include the SA-82-AR FlatPak, CM-1115-RT-AR and CM-1120-RT-AR, Compact Mounts (two-outlet version only), SX20-NE/RT-AR - Branch Circuit, SA-1810-AR - Stand Alone, SA-15-AR and SA-20-AR .

"In order to create a more intelligent power management system, we equipped the core of our existing product line with network connectivity," said Rick Komendera, vice president of sales for SurgeX. "The new Axess Ready line gives installers and consultants more product choices and management options while making our existing power solutions intelligent."

As an added benefit, when used in conjunction with the SurgeX Cervella platform, all Axess Ready products are automatically discovered and can be securely controlled by Cervella. Cervella, when used in combination with SurgeX's new Axess platform, delivers the most comprehensive and fully integrated power protection, device management, control and reporting system in the industry. When installed on a network, Cervella aggregates outlet-level energy and power information collected from each connected Axess, Axess Elite or Axess Ready devices into a single interface, while providing comprehensive reporting of the system's power status, energy usage and overall network health.
