LynTec’s RPC Remote Control Circuit Breaker Panel, RPCR Relay Panel and XPC Series Remote Relay Module provide complete, reliable and easy-to-install power control
LENEXA, Kan. – August 2, 2021 – LynTec, a leading manufacturer of innovative power control solutions for professional audio, video and lighting (AVL) systems, announced that Integrated Production Solutions (IPS) have succeeded in meeting the challenges of Distributed AVL and sequencing power control from Grace Community Church in Brentwood, Tennessee, using its RPC remote control circuit breaker panels, RPCR relay panels and XPC series remote relay modules. With power control and remote monitoring systems chosen for facilities around the world, LynTec’s modular solutions have enabled Grace Community staff and volunteers to power, protect and manage cost-effectively and without effortlessly its multizone digital LED audio, video and lighting systems from a single internal switch.
As many churches enrich their AVL equipment with increasingly rugged and sophisticated equipment once found only in production and live entertainment venues, these AVL systems demand superior, purpose-built power control. On average, churches and their equipment are only used 5% of the week when services are taking place, but they continue to consume energy, resulting in higher energy bills and prematurely shortening service life. of AVL investments. With AVL equipment completely shut down through LynTec’s distributed power control system, Grace Community can save utility costs each year and protect the lifespan of AVL devices with a simple and intuitive system that eliminates the need for waste. old process of entering an electrical room and turning the circuit breakers on and off.“The reality of turning circuit breakers on and off – no matter how many – just to turn on the system is unrealistic. Facilities tend to leave their things on or they forget to turn them off, ”said Bryan Levy, IPS Integration Systems Designer. “LynTec becomes a natural and consistent part of how the system works, making it almost impossible to forget to turn everything off and prevent things from burning prematurely, especially in churches, where equipment is not actively in use. daily. “
Grace Community’s lighting equipment included 18 Chauvet Ovation E-260WW luminaires, two Ayrton Perseo-S LEDs, six Elation KL Fresnel 8 and six Chauvet Ovation E-910FC. On the video side, IPS installed two squareV LED walls on either side of the stage. The audio includes d & b audiotecknik PA multi-element speakers. Supported by Luxul’s L2 / L3 managed switches, IPS installed the LynTec RPC-348 main panel on the second floor of the church, an RPCR automated relay panel with eight relays behind the stage and an XRS 20 rack sequencer in front of the house to ensure the console is turned off in the correct order.
Together, these solutions simplified an otherwise complicated project, eliminating the need for an electrician to wire the entire building and the additional labor costs involved. Another advantage of LynTec’s wide range of power control solutions is that they support the range of control protocols in use today, including DMX, sACN, HTTP, Telnet, RS-232 or BacNET. . At Grace Community, all circuits in each zone can be disabled with a LynTec SS-2LRP key switch on the front of the house. Additionally, IPS was able to program the LynTec system fire alarm contact to the building’s fire alarm system to close in less than a minute, in accordance with strict National Fire Protection Association codes.
“The value of AVL power control, both from an ongoing operating cost perspective and from an equipment perspective, cannot be overlooked for today’s places of worship,” said Mark Bishop, president of LynTec. “We are honored that IPS has made our solutions an indispensable part of their projects. We not only offer reliable power control options that are easy to install and use, but also affordable enough for smaller worship organizations.
