Dual Power over DXLink Controller

DescriptionDual Power over DXLink Controller
Part #FG1090-170

The PDXL-2 allows for I/O control from a NetLinx controller to power down any connected DXLink devices allowing them to be included in an overall room power savings mode.

Up to two DXLink devices can be powered by the PDXL-2 enabling a stand-alone point-to-point DXLink Transmitter to DXLink Receiver installation in a single room application

The PDXL-2 is a Power over DXLink injector which allows for remote powering of any two DXLink devices by "injecting" power through the twisted pair cable. The PDXL-2 also accepts I/O control from a NetLinx controller allowing power down capabilities to either (or both) of the connected DXLink devices to achieve power savings when they are not in use.

The PDXL-2 Dual Power over DXLINK Controller provides the ability to power a point-to-point DXLink Transmitter to DXLink Receiver without the need for an AC outlet in proximity to the location of the DXLink devices. When used with a NetLinx controller, the PDXL-2 can power down the DXLink devices as part of a standby mode for an entire room to reduce energy usage.
