Remote Power Control Mobile (RPCM)
Launching at LDI 2013 is LynTec’s all-new Remote Power Control Mobile (RPCM) — the first intelligent power distribution panel to bring three new features to the mobile power distribution market. First, the RPCM uses switch-grade motorized circuit breakers to provide remotely managed electrical protection and on/off control within a single enclosure. Second, the unit offers current monitoring at the branch circuit level — enabling real-time current draw on a branch breaker, phase, or panel basis in addition to notification alarms that alert users of electrical panel anomalies via text or email. Third, the RPCM’s built-in Web server enables users to monitor and control distribution with ease directly on the network from a Web interface on any browser-enabled smart device. RPCM also interfaces with most third-party control systems using IP, DMX, and sACN protocols.
Ideal for temporary live events in settings including houses of worship, stadiums, and theaters, the RPCM provides direct on/off control for LED lighting and takes loads out of standby mode by directly shutting down circuits — reducing energy and system maintenance costs, and facilitating more sustainable setups within a portable, road case design.

Remote Power Controller (RPC) — New Version!
Lyntec’s Remote Power Controller (RPC) Series Panel version 2 combines the latest motorized breaker technology with a new and improved controller featuring more memory, a faster processor for real-time monitoring down to the circuit level, and the capacity to use multiple control protocols simultaneously — now including sACN. These new features complement the device’s onboard server with network or smart-device access, load-specified switch-grade motorized circuit breakers, built-in auto-off brownout protection using controlled circuit breaker shut-down and restart, optional sequential circuit level on/off capabilities, and ability to interface with third-party control systems via contact closure, TCP/IP, DMX, or RS-232.
This new version also provides the market’s only auto-on function to activate egress lighting via contact closure inputs from fire alarms in the event of an emergency. Supporting UL924 requirements, the upgrade replaces the need for separate emergency lighting panels and high voltage switches. The software also turns on lighting circuits regardless of control protocol or zone assignment — similar to the function of existing emergency-off or kill features used for silencing sound reinforcement systems during alarms.

RPCR Relay Panel
Ideal for houses of worship, schools, performing arts centers, auditoriums, and other large assembly spaces, LynTec’s RPCR is the only relay panel built specifically for the entertainment industry. Based on LynTec’s popular RPC series panel, the RPCR brings branch circuit control and monitoring to any existing breaker panel, regardless of brand, make, or model. The unit combines relay functionality with a built-in Web server to provide remote electrical control to applications, including LED lighting, powered amplifiers, and energy management programs. Additionally, a Web-enabled browser-based interface allows users to set up, troubleshoot, control, and monitor relay status remotely across existing networks — resulting in simpler, more efficient power management from any computer, tablet, or handheld smart device. The point-and-click interface enables users to set up zones easily, perform sequential on/off switching and scheduling, activate emergency overrides, and provide dependable brownout protection.
