LynTec, a leading manufacturer of innovative electrical power control solutions for
professional audio, video, and lighting systems, announced the addition of Telnet
control to the company’s complete line of RPC series power control panels. Telnet
expands RPC’s interface options, strengthening the line-up’s on-board monitoring and
control capabilities from any remote location.

“Installations are moving toward a shared Ethernet backbone, and we added Telnet to
the TCP/IP protocol to meet the need for simple monitoring and control over the
network,” says Mark Bishop, president of LynTec. “As a manufacturer, we have the
most choices for control of any remote power panel’s standard offering.”

Telnet is a well-established data transfer protocol for transmitting serial data
commands over Ethernet networks. This industry accepted protocol joins streaming
ACN (PLASA E1.31) and HTTP GET commands as IP-based controls for RPC remote
controlled power panels. RPC panels also accept RS-232 serial, DMX-512 and contact
closures as control inputs, offering a very flexible self-contained platform for power
control applications.
