Luxul, a leading innovator of IP networking solutions for CEDIA professionals, recently
announced an extended product line with a new series of intelligent network power
distribution units (PDU). With features such as self-healing and seamless integration
with remote management platforms, the PDU series makes it simple for integrators to
monitor and manage connected devices, increasing efficiency and customer
satisfaction while lowering costs.

“Including an intelligent PDU is a must for any installation for integrators to more
effectively monitor and manage their clients’ networks and create a better customer
experience,” said Mike Grubb, vice president of marketing at Luxul. “That’s what
makes our new PDU series such an important and exciting addition to our platform of
networking solutions. Now integrators have a solution backed by the Luxul name and
another piece toward a complete Luxul installation.”

Fast and easy to set up, the PDUs allow for the local monitoring and rebooting of
unresponsive devices, while their self-healing function performs reboots automatically
to avoid costly truck rolls and service calls. When used with third-party remote
management platforms, like Domotz and Ihiji, the units’ capabilities expand to include
remote access and control. This allows integrators to receive port status notifications,
power-cycle unresponsive devices from anywhere, and deliver a better overall
customer experience.

Power management features for the PDU series include MOV surge and spike
protection for connected equipment in addition to remote sequencing for controlled
startup and shutdown. Luxul offers a lifetime limited warranty for connected
equipment, while the PDUs are backed by a three-year limited warranty and lifetime
remote support.

Luxul’s PDU series consists of the PDU 2, with two individual IP-controllable outlets;
the rack-mountable PDU 8, with eight controllable outlets and one additional
convenience outlet; and the PDU 16, with eight controllable outlets and eight
additional convenience outlets. The units will be available at the end of December
