GUDE presents 2 new IP power solutions for the DIN rail

IP power distribution Expert Power Control 8001

The Expert Power Control 8001-1 has 5 switchable load outputs and, thanks to environmental monitoring and energy measurement per port, enables the increase of operational safety and energy efficiency in switching and distribution cabinets. The compact device in a DIN rail housing is compatible with audio/video control systems from renowned manufacturers such as Crestron, Extron, Domotz and Control4.

The switched Power Distribution Unit (PDU) with its 4 main functions provides all possibilities for a flexible and demand-oriented device management: switching, measuring, controlling & monitoring. In addition to total current measurement, the DIN rail device has two integrated energy meters per load output (outlet-metered). The measurement of a large number of electrical variables enables the user to identify and exploit power saving potential in the IT environment.

Remote Monitoring System Expert Net Control 2304-1

The Expert Net Control 2304-1 is an intelligent remote monitoring system that allows extensive control and access options via TCP/IP in DIN rail installations. Users can take advantage of schedule-controlled switching, threshold alarms and sensor-based environmental monitoring to safeguard their mission-critical equipment. Thanks to available drivers, seamless integration with industry-standard monitoring solutions (PRTG, Domotz, Icinga, Nagios, PoweIQ) is possible.

The Remote Monitoring System (RMS) has 8 individually switchable relay outputs and 8 passive signal inputs for polling NO/NC devices (e.g. smoke detectors and door contacts). Thanks to the sensor connection (RJ45), the remote I/O system can be expanded with plug-n-play sensors and ambient temperature, humidity, air pressure and leakage can be monitored.
