Nice/Nortek Control has released the Panamax C3-IP, a 12 Amp BlueBOLT–enabled compact power conditioner and power sequencer that provides individual control for three separate outlets.
With remote power management via the BlueBOLT cloud platform, installers can monitor, control, and program from anywhere. Fifty percent smaller than its predecessor, the Panamax C3-IP has a slim design that fits the needs of virtually any discrete installation. It is ideal for installations like behind a flat screen, in a structured wiring enclosure, or mounted to the back of a rack.
Automatic over/under voltage protection through Panamax technology ensures fewer service calls and maximum longevity of connected equipment.
When integrated with the ELAN Control Systems, the Panamax C3-IP provides personalized, feature-rich control through intuitive functionality and customization. Integration with ELAN Control Systems provides users with seamless control from a smartphone or the ELAN Intelligent Touch Panel. Installers who choose Panamax products also benefit from the recently launched software upgrade, 8.7 for ELAN Control Systems, which provides end users with the ability to manage their own power usage via their ELAN system, further reducing service calls.
“The Panamax C3-IP power conditioner is more than surge protection. Integrators can install with confidence knowing they’re using best in power and energy management,” said Jeff Shaw, vice president, product management of control, power/AV at Nice/Nortek Control. “The product was designed to allow the installer to be proactive and resolve most issues before the client even knows, and ultimately reduce service calls. It’s an easy way for installers to show their clients the value they bring and add ‘soft’ customer touches.”
Programmable from anywhere in the world via BlueBOLT IP Power Management, the Panamax C3-IP sets a new standard for remote management, with an intuitive and fast UI backed by a robust new IP infrastructure for maximum reliability.
With the addition of sequencing and IP monitor and control, end users can easily reboot their network devices, control and security system once the installer has configured the unit. Installers can schedule power cycling of three individually controlled outlets.
The system automatically reboots network equipment when connectivity is lost and provides the ability to monitor energy use, set alerts, and program scheduled commands
“We are committed to offering dealers and installers exceptional control and convenience. The integration of Panamax C3-IP with the ELAN control system simplifies maintenance, updates, and programming for our partners while greatly increasing the user experience for the homeowner,” said Richard Pugnier, vice president of marketing & education at Nice/Nortek Control. “The expanded Nice/Nortek Control portfolio ensures they have more choices for every project and that there are no gaps across platforms and devices for any application.”
Ideal for protecting audio, video, and security equipment in a rack, while using rear rack space for the power unit, the Panamax C3-IP is the intelligent choice for residential and commercial applications. It can also protect connected equipment as well as the power conditioner itself from power surges, micro surges, and dangerous voltage conditions to lengthen the life of electronics and stabilize power levels.
It offers individual outlet control on all IP power management products and flexibility so installers can program the three outlets based on their applications, ensuring network handshakes during rebooting and proper AV power sequencing.
Thoughtful design means the outlets are arranged to enable access to adjacent plugs. They are widely spaced for even large transformers. The new Panamax power conditioner and sequencer is a cost-effective comprehensive protection for budget challenged installations.
For installations where the C3-IP device is not connected to the internet, it can be configured and controlled locally using the embedded webpage. The C3-IP can also be controlled and programed securely on the local network (LAN) via ELAN or other third-party control systems.
