Panamax/Furman Adds Lighting Control

Panamax/Furman announced that the company would be combining LiteTouch, a manufacturer of lighting control products, with its operations.

Panamax/Furman announced that the company would be combining LiteTouch, a manufacturer of lighting control products, with its operations. Both companies are subsidiaries of the Home Technology Group of Linear LLC.

Panamax sells power management, monitoring, and control solutions engineered for professional custom electronics integrators. The Furman brand provides power management solutions for musicians, audio professionals, and commercial AV integrators, as well as a line of power conditioners for audiophile-grade AV systems and 220V-240V power management solutions for use outside of North America. LiteTouch makes lighting control solutions designed to be installed and custom-programmed by authorized dealers, certified installers, and distributors worldwide. Its systems are engineered for both new construction and retrofit applications

"The combined operations of LiteTouch and Panamax/Furman will provide installers and integrators with a full range of high-voltage custom residential and commercial installation products," said Bill Pollock, Panamax/Furman president and head of the combined entity, in a statement. "Additionally, both companies' focus on innovation in energy management and green technologies, such as BlueBolt and LiteTouch Remote Access, provides a tremendous opportunity for alignment and symmetry in delivering next-generation energy management solutions for our customers and their clients."

Panamax/Furman has integrated its new BlueBolt Technology into many of its products, making it easy for dealers and installers to control and monitor AV system power from anywhere through a secure, hosted IP Web portal, according to the company. LiteTouch has added DayLight Harvesting keypads to its product lineup, and the company will feature a low-voltage relay and data input port option for each of its new 2011 keypads, allowing for the local connection of motion and occupancy sensors to the system, the company said.
