New Products and Technologies on Display at CEA Line Shows 2010:
At CEA Line Shows, Panamax/Furman will be demonstrating its revolutionary new BlueBOLT(TM) Web-based power and energy management platform. In addition, the company’s BlueBOLT-enabled M4315-PRO and M4320-PRO power conditioners will be on display, along with the BlueBOLT-compatible F1500 UPS A/V battery backup solution. The PM8-GAV, which provides current sensing for energy conservation, will also be featured.
BlueBOLT(TM) provides hosted IP (Internet Protocol) power control and energy monitoring for A/V systems. Users can control BlueBOLT-equipped units through Panamax/Furman’s hosted BlueBOLT servers for plug-and-play setup. The card is also compatible with the TELNET protocol for integration into existing control systems.
BlueBOLT’s top-line features include remote outlet control for hard reboots of connected equipment; e-mail alerts when power anomalies occur; scheduled commands for power-up, power-down, or power-cycling of outlets; monitoring of incoming voltage in near-real time or over history; and permissions settings to provide secure device access at administrator, installer, or client level.
Besides being a robust and effective remote power management technology, BlueBOLT also provides installers and dealers with an energy management platform that saves their clients money on their utility bills, provides them with a higher level of energy consumption awareness, and helps them to be more energy efficient.

Panamax M4315-PRO and M4320-PRO Power Conditioners
Panamax will be demonstrating the latest additions to its PRO line of power management products: the M4315-PRO (15A) and M4320-PRO (20A). These 1-RU units combine control with “pro” level linear filtration for an optimal home theater experience, and are the first PRO power management products to feature BlueBOLT(TM) energy management. The M4315-PRO and M4320-PRO include standard RS-232 communication for remote control of outlets, enabling installers to automate equipment functionality. BlueBOLT provides external access to many more custom programming and monitoring features. These units come in a 19-inch PRO width, offer a detachable IEC power cord, and feature four isolated linear filtered outlet banks.
The M4315-PRO and M4320-PRO are available at MSRPs of $649.95 and $749.95, respectively.

The PM8-GAV combines current-sensing outlets with Panamax standard noise filtration and surge protection. This product helps homeowners conserve energy and save money by shutting off power to nonessential devices when the PM8-GAV senses a control device is in standby mode. The PM8-GAV includes noise filtration for increased picture and sound quality, as well as quality surge protection for peace of mind.
The PM8-GAV is available at an MSRP of $119.95.
