LENEXA, Kan. — Aug. X, 2014 — LynTec, a leading manufacturer of customized electrical power control solutions for professional audio, video, and lighting systems, today announced that the company’s MSLC Modular Sequencing Load Center has been installed in the performing arts auditorium of The Prairie School. Located in Racine, Wisconsin, The Prairie School is a college preparatory, independent day school whose curriculum demands high academic standards while encouraging creative learning in the performing arts.
“Prior to installing the MSLC, the auditorium was plagued with system glitches, disruptive humming sounds and inefficient and potentially damaging power-up and power-down practices which, if left unaddressed, would add up to a costly maintenance bill,” said Kim Leonard, President of Professional Audio Designs, Inc. (PAD), the system integrator for the installation. “By installing the MSLC downstream of the isolation transformer, we were able to not only increase safety but also eliminate humming by providing overall isolation relative to the ground.”
Supporting a recently installed array of new A/V components — including amplifiers, microphones, and camera equipment — the MSLC transforms the auditorium into a professional-grade performing arts facility. As the backbone of the electrical infrastructure, the panel offers a simple, one-touch sequencing solution to meet the demanding needs of the school’s performing arts program.
The MSLC easily met the auditorium’s requirements for circuit protection and power control. Using power sequencing, the system allows support staff to power-up and power-down equipment easily without any risk of potential damage to installed hardware. The panel also protects from power anomalies and prevents energy wastage by guaranteeing that all systems are completely turned off at the push of a single button. PAD paired the MSLC with a Creston® DM control system that allows for HDCP handshaking during the power-up process, providing a seamless infrastructure throughout the installation while maintaining both pristine quality and operability across all components.
“The Prairie School’s auditorium is the ideal setting for the space-saving MSLC. As a single panel solution, it’s compact yet powerful and efficient,” said Mark Bishop, president of LynTec. “Its motorized circuit breaker technology offers failsafe power control and protection as well as providing energy cost-savings.”
