It’s no secret digital devices freeze. So often the solution is simply a hard power reset. With RackLink™ you’re able to remotely turn an outlet on and off from your computer, mobile device, control system and cloud service. RackLink also has a feature called AutoPing. AutoPing will constantly proactively monitor the network status of connected devices and reboot them automatically if the devices no longer respond. What do the control options mean for you and your company? You don't have to worry about "rolling a truck" or the hassle with getting into buildings if visitors are restricted or limited for simple equipment fixes. RackLink’s open API and partnership integrations provide out of the box compatibility with control systems and cloud services for proactive system management to easily include in your AVaaS offering to clients.
Logging and Data Management
The saying goes, “you can’t have an AV system without power.” Consider the power as the nervous system to your AV System. To keep the nervous system healthy you want to be able to continuously monitor and log what is going on. RackLink™ allows for continuous monitoring and logging of all power and environmental events within your system and will even let you know if things don’t seem right via text or email alerts.
The longevity of your AV System so often hinges on elements outside of your control – heat & humidity. The Premium+ PDU has an accessory sensor option that monitors temperature and humidity, connect up to 32 sensors to monitor temperature and humidity throughout the entire system, big or small. Proactive alerts give you the control of what’s going on with your system and solve the issue before the equipment fails.
AV systems need to be protected from events like surges to ensure system uptime and keeping equipment safe. Power events go beyond surges however, events like overvoltage and undervoltage can be just as damaging to equipment. Premium+ PDUs with RackLink are available with either 2-stage MOV surge protection or patented Series Protection™ and Select PDUs with RackLink are available with Basic MOV surge protection.
