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.

 BLE2 Series Brushless Motor & Driver

BLE2 Series Brushless Motor & Driver

The BLE2 Series replaces our popular BLE Series and continues our brushless motor advantages by featuring an all new compact, high-power and high-efficiency brushless DC motor combined with a Driver that can be digitally set and controlled via external DC voltage or by the front panel. The BLE2 Series can easily compete with larger 3-phase inverter driven motors in many more applications, with built-in simple holding torque function, saving space and increasing performance thanks to the advantages of a brushless motor design. The BLE2 Series has a maximum speed of 4000 r/min, achieving a speed ratio of 1:50 (80 to 4000 r/min). The new motor structure is small than previous models and enables high power and high efficiency while incorporating easy setting, installation and wiring. The new motor connector offers IP66 degree of protection and allows for easy and direct connection between motor and driver with two available orientation of cable outlet direction.
