Anaheim, California (June 19, 2007) - Extron Electronics is pleased to introduce the IPL T PC1 and IPL T PC1i, AC Power and Device Controllers with IP Link®. They provide automated AC power control and RS-232 and IR device control through a computer network using a Web browser for AV and IT applications. Both models feature Extron IP Link technology for flexible, Web-based power and device management. The IPL T PC1 Series controllers can be configured using Global Configurator, Extron's free, easy-to-use configuration software. The IPL T PC1 and IPL T PC1i are easily integrated alongside other IP Link products and can be remotely managed and controlled using the free GlobalViewer Web application.

"The integration of AC power control with device control in a single product makes IPL T PC 1 Series controllers ideal for a wide variety of remote networked applications," says Lee Dodson, Vice President of Marketing for Extron Electronics. "Also, their compact size facilitates easy installation in these remote locations, such as behind a digital signage display or in a kiosk."

The IPL T PC1 supplies up to 12A of 120VAC power, using an Edison outlet. The IPL T PC1i supplies up to 10A of 220 VAC power, using an IEC outlet. They can be used to cycle power to a "frozen" AV device or be configured to turn the device ON or OFF at scheduled times for security and energy savings. For real time notification, the controller can be programmed to send out an e-mail when each event is performed. Web-based AV device management is further enhanced by the RS-232 and IR ports, which can be used to remotely control the operation of a DVD players, VCR, or display.

The contact closure input port can be connected to a switch or sensor for theft detection or automated device control. The software can be configured to trigger a user-definable action when the input senses a drop in voltage. For example, an e-mail can be sent when a device is disconnected or the power outlet can be disabled when a cabinet is opened.
