Furman's BlueBOLT-CV1 Interface Card

  • At InfoComm 2010, Furman will demonstrate its BlueBOLT energy management and remote power monitoring technology. Available for select Panamax/Furman products via the BlueBOLT-CV1 interface card, BlueBOLT provides secure, hosted IP (Internet Protocol) system control and energy monitoring for AV systems. Users can control BlueBOLT-equipped units either through Panamax/Furman’s hosted BlueBOLT servers for secure plug-and-play setup, or if preferred, via direct connection over Telnet or http using the BlueBOLT-CV1’s embedded Web server. With BlueBOLT, electronic system contractors can drastically reduce service calls and help their clients be more energy efficient. BlueBOLT allows individual outlets or outlet banks to be power-cycled from any Web browser or Web-enabled mobile device, while voltage and current consumption can be monitored in real time or tracked over a time period. E-mail notifications are sent when power anomalies are detected, allowing installers and end users to take immediate action in the event of a catastrophic surge, brownout, blackout, or other power event. BlueBOLT also provides a simple and convenient way to manage energy consumption by cutting off all current to select components, thereby eliminating wasteful stand-by power in an AV system.
