Telemetrics has introduced a new multi-function ‘intelligent’ power supply unit (PS-RM2-48) for its robotic camera control systems that includes a small LCD display for status diagnostics and Ethernet connectivity, giving users the ability to monitor the PSU remotely within the feature rich software of the Telemetrics RCCP-2A control panel.
Unlike other power supplies on the market, the 2RU
PS-RM2-48 also provides reliable and safe DC power for cameras, lenses,
prompters, confidence monitors and fiber adapters. This is important as
AC extension cords running across the floor, used regularly by competing
systems, present a hazard to the crew. This use of low-voltage DC power
also complies with the latest safe working directives in Europe and
“The new PSU does things no other power supply can do and helps robotic camera users be more efficient with their power usage,” said Michael Cuomo, Vice President at Telemetrics. “It’s also great for studio applications that have multiple Telemetrics robotic camera control system operating at the same time. Now, with this new PSU, users can power all of the components with a single device. Therefore, it’s easier to use, takes up less rack space and is more fully featured than any other PSU for robotic camera systems on the market today.”
The compact PS-RM2-48 measures 19 inches in a 2U chassis. It also includes Ethernet connectivity, giving users the ability to control and monitor the power supply remotely. This also serves as a safety feature because now users can monitor the power that’s being drawn from the power supply.
