New Card Reduces Installer Service Calls, Lowering Time on the Road and Fuel Consumption
PETALUMA, Calif. — Jan. 15, 2008 —
Panamax/Furman, a world-leading provider of AC power management solutions, today announced the new M7500CRD-IP, a card for remote control of the MAXA® 7500-PRO power management system. Featuring remote diagnostics and e-mail alerts, the M7500CRD-IP reduces the need for installers to drive to an end users‘ location for routine maintenance and resetting.
The new M7500CRD-IP provides complete IP control of the MAX 7500-PRO, which helps ensure that home theater systems deliver the best possible sound and picture quality by protecting them from electromagnetic interference (EMI), radio frequency interference (RFI), digital noise, and ground loop disturbances.
Utilizing the card, users have control of the MAX 7500-PRO‘s individual outlet banks, featuring power, trigger, and delay settings. Remote diagnostics check the unit status and incoming line voltages, while e-mail alerts for over and undervoltages help users anticipate or prevent service calls.
“We are proud to offer our new M7500CRD-IP, which offers a number of benefits to installers,” said Dave Keller, senior vice president of sales and marketing for Panamax and Furman. “Not only does it save them time and money by greatly reducing service calls, but it also means installers are using less fuel, which is important to the environment. And of course fewer service calls also means less hassle for customers, providing them with a better experience.”
The IP card features an easy, plug-and-play installation interface and spring-loaded screws to secure the card to the rear of the MAX 7500-PRO. An included LAN port is compatible with BaseT 10/100.
The M7500CRD-IP card is currently available at an SRP of $199.95.
