LENEXA, Kan. — Jan. 31, 2017 –– LynTec, a leading manufacturer of innovative electrical power control solutions for professional audio, video, and lighting systems, announced it has upgraded its sequencing setup options within its RPC and RPCR series of electrical control panels to eliminate the challenges of properly powering on digital audio systems.
“The initial boot-up process for digital audio systems is an increasingly complex task. Digital consoles, digital snakes, and wireless microphones all have unique start-up requirements. Unless they’re turned on properly, they will not recognize other equipment — preventing the system from communicating or functioning as a whole,” said Mark Bishop, president of LynTec. “This is a big frustration for many audio engineers, who have to resort to manually tweaking the system or re-booting individual pieces. Because of these start-up frustrations, many audio pros have abandoned off-the-shelf sequencers since they only sequence in one order and only at a single step rate. With our new sequencing setup options, we’ve solved this challenge, making LynTec’s RPC and RPCR panels as the power automation control solution.”
Now all RPC-controllable circuit breakers and RPCR relay panels offer a customizable step rate in between each circuit being controlled; they also allow users to decide the order that each circuit powers on. With this new upgrade, users can select the exact number of seconds — anywhere between 1 and 999 seconds — that are needed to allow their digital equipment to fully boot up before the next step of the sequence fires. For example, if an audio engineer determines that exactly 43 seconds are required to fully boot-up the digital console before the digital snake turns on, then they can select the “custom” delay setting and simply type in 43 into the blank space. The custom delay setting will then assure that the system turns on properly every time by issuing a single “on” command.
This new feature is available with any system that ships after Feb. 1., and is available as a free firmware upgrade to any existing RPC series panels currently installed. More information on LynTec’s full line of products is available at www.LynTec.com.
