Brand updates power distribution units to support new workflows.
As broadcasters continue to face more complex workflows, typically pulling in feeds from around the globe, be it for news, sports, entertainment or other live programming, the need for a seamless collaborative remote environment is necessary.
Streamlined maintenance and minimized energy consumption has become a priority. With this in mind, TSL highlights its new Intelligent Power Distribution Units (PDUs) at IBC 2022.
The new Intelligent PDU’s have increased functionality, offering enhanced levels of power monitoring and management, providing operators extra peace of mind with a more streamlined workflow. In addition, TSL’s updated PDUs help companies meet sustainability goals as the devices can act under instruction to selectively switch off power when not in use, either remotely or onsite, further supporting flexibility and energy and cost savings.
The new ethernet connected PDUs have been designed to handle up to 32 amps (A) with optional auto-failover/auto supply and lifted the entry level current from 16 to 20, as customers deploy more high-powered equipment. The new design also includes an upgrade from 12 to 14 outputs, each one capable of delivering up to 10A, enabling customers to power more units from one PDU.
TSL will also be showing its Data Centre Infrastructure Monitoring (DCIM) solution, Insite, which utilizes industry standard SNMP to monitor both TSL PDUs, and any SNMP connected third party equipment, offering not just power, but complete system health monitoring. The DCIM solution features comprehensive monitoring, alarming and power usage metrics, presented on an intuitive dashboard. Additionally, TSL will have its full line of Power solutions on stand, from vertical to horizontal PDUs to address the range of power requirements needed for varying applications and workflows.
