DENVER, CO-APC has been selected as an OEM manufacturing source and technology partner for a new power conditioner for AV systems by Crestron.
An initial result of the joint endeavor is Crestron's new CEN-UPS1250 power conditioner for home theaters and other AV systems, which Crestron is introducing at CEDIA Expo. The CEN-UPS1250 is the first universal power supply to combine APC's battery backup technology, automatic voltage regulation, and surge protection, and Crestron's Cresnet-enabling technology.
In addition, APC technology in the CEN-UPS1250 also enables installers to remotely monitor the device via the Cresnet network and manage it by, for example, rebooting individual outlet banks to reset hung equipment, which can eliminate service calls. Additional APC technology available to Crestron, and in the CEN-UPS1250, includes isolated noise filter banks, which eliminate EMI/RFI noise interference that can degrade picture and sound quality.
