The SurgeX line of products helps integrators manage power needs for their projects, and the SurgeX Squid has been the flagship product for doing that. Vince Luciani of SurgeX shows AV Nation’s Tim Albright some of the latest innovations. The Squid has one input, 7 outputs where 4 of the outputs are traditional AC controls, and three are DC so integrators can get rid of wall warts. By using a relay-based system, currents can be controlled, the device can be monitored and there are also external control options.
There will be three SKU options; a 12/12, a 12/24 and a 24/24. There is a 5 volt output on all three devices. Luciani recommends that integrators have a thorough understanding of what they need to power, and then SurgeX professionals will help them determine which unit is best. The improved Squid device will be available early next year.
AVNation is a collective of audiovisual professionals. Our hosts, panelists, writers, and producers all work in the AV industry in some capacity. That gives us a unique perspective on the industry and allows us to ask questions end users, technology managers, IT managers, and AV integrators would ask. Our coverage of InfoComm 2019 comes from these points of view. Everything we are able to do is made possible by our supporters who provide the financial support for AVNation. We are always looking for new voices. If you want to have your point of view heard contact us by clicking here. Let us know who you are and what you have to say.
