Panamax today announced that its M4315 -PRO power management product featuring BlueBOLT(TM) capability has been named as a 2010 CEDIA Manufacturer's Excellence Award finalist in the Best New Product category. Finalists for this year's awards were determined by a diverse panel of CEDIA residential electronic systems contractor judges on the criteria of innovation, value to the technician, value to the business, and impact on the client's lifestyle.


"In addition to offering consumers the best -possible performance from their A/V equipment, the M4315 -PRO provides significant cost savings for installers and end users alike. For installers, the ability to perform hard reboots remotely drastically reduces service calls. For their customers, the unit's BlueBOLT energy management helps reduce energy consumption for lower utility bills," said Dave Keller, senior vice president of sales and marketing for Panamax/Furman. "It is truly an honor to receive recognition for our efforts from the CEDIA community and to be named as a finalist for this prestigious award."

The 15A M4315 -PRO is one of Panamax's first PRO series power management products to feature BlueBOLT, which provides hosted IP (Internet Protocol) power control and energy monitoring for A/V systems. BlueBOLT's breakthrough features include remote outlet control for hard reboots of connected equipment; e -mail alerts when power anomalies occur; scheduled commands for power -up, power -down, or power -cycling of outlets; and monitoring of incoming voltage in near -real time or over history.

For an optimal home theater experience, the 15A M4315 -PRO combines this unprecedented control with "pro" level linear noise filtration for enhanced audio and video system performance. The M4315 -PRO includes a standard two -way RS -232 communication card for remote control of all eight individual rear panel outlets, enabling installers to automate equipment functionality. The 1 -RU product comes in a 19 -inch PRO width, offers a detachable IEC power cord, and features four isolated linear filtered outlet banks.

The Top 10 Best New Product winners will be announced at the Electronic Lifestyles(R) Awards Banquet at CEDIA EXPO 2010 on Sept. 25 in Atlanta, Ga.

The M4315 -PRO and the 20A version, the M4320 -PRO, are available now, at MSRPs of $649.95 and $749.95, respectively.

Universal Robots Add a Sense of Touch in New e-Series Cobots with Built-in Force/Torque Sensor and Re-Designed User Interface

With the new e-Series cobot line, Universal Robots raises the bar for cobots, adding unique new features while significantly strengthening the four core principles defining collaborative robots: fast set-up, easy programming, flexible deployment, and safe operation. With a new built-in, tool-centric Force/Torque sensor the e-Series is ready to take on applications requiring force control right out of the box. A repeatability of 30 micron means the new cobots are suitable for very precise finishing, assembly and electronics tasks. A re-designed user interface decreases cognitive load and expedites program development, while a new externally accessible, 500Hz system bus enables more complex motion control algorithms or profiles.
