AMX Innovates with Twice the Remotely Powered AV and Unlimited Energy Savings Potential

New Dual Power over DXLink Controller Smartly Redefines Twisted Pair Power Injection

Amsterdam, Netherlands January 31, 2013


AMX® continued its quest to be the talk of Integrated Systems Europe (ISE) 2013 by debuting another product designed to make digital and analog media distribution simple to centrally manage while at the same time reducing costly energy usage for the end user. The new Dual Power over DXLink™ Controller (PDXL-2) was a welcome surprise for many visitors to AMX ISE Booth # 1-F6 for its ability to solve a number of remote distribution challenges.

The PDXL-2 surfs the speed bumps of long distance AV delivery from three points of attack. As a DXLink power injector, it conveniently enables data and power transport of up to 30 watts on each of the PDXL-2's two available DXLink device outputs between transmitters and receivers located up to 100 meters away from each other. Additionally, by injecting Power over DXLink via the existing DXLink path, a stand-alone point-to-point DXLink Transmitter to Receiver installation can be created for single room applications. And, the PDXL-2 eliminates the aesthetic inconvenience and cost of installing electrical outlets at every transmitter or receiver location.

While the PDXL-2 was primarily designed to make remote AV distribution simpler to manage, it can also generate significant and impactful ROI by smartly curbing wasted energy usage throughout a floor, building or campus. Acting as a conduit for a NetLinx® Controller, the PDXL-2 enables administrators to remotely power down unused devices via I/O control from a single, central location. AMX Resource Management Suite® Enterprise Software can multiply these savings even further by scheduling and executing automated power down routines, freeing IT to address more pressing matters than room to room, device to device facility power-down tours.

Availability and Additional Details

The new Dual Power over DXLink Controller (PDXL-2) is expected to begin shipping in February as AMX continues planned delivery of all of the products announced during ISE 2013 to be available at least two months ahead of initial scheduled release.
