Presentation Switchers goes green with Sleep Mode
Presentation Switchers has added ‘Sleep Mode’ to its Series 500 line of switchers, which the manufacturer reports lowers power consumption to 2W or less.
This new feature is available to existing dealer installations through a firmware upgrade, and works by disconnecting the power to the entire system (except the controller card, using a single RS-232 command). Meanwhile, another RS-232 command restores the system to ready-status.
With Sleep Mode, the brand’s PS550 and PS530 presentation switchers will see power consumption drop to 2W and 1W, respectively.
