Telnet expands RPC’s interface options, strengthening the lineup’s onboard monitoring and control capabilities from any remote location.

“As installations move toward a shared Ethernet backbone, 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.
