Squid is the first SurgeX product with universal compatibility with 120–240V
With a compact footprint, Squid is a new power management device from SurgeX that offers boxed network control, remote monitoring and power protection in a compact chassis. It features the manufacturer’s patented Multi-Stage surge suppression technology, along with two 5V USB port inputs for charging and network troubleshooting and eight outputs, four of which are traditionally controlled and monitored IEC receptacles, and four are DC so integrators can eliminate the need for wall warts or a two-box solution. By using a relay-based system, SurgeX reports that the AC and DC ports can be controlled and the device can be monitored and integrated into third-party control systems.
Available in three models for (2) 12V, (2) 24V and a combination of the two, integrators can use Squid to power small spaces and keep them running smoothly with preventative maintenance, mounting the small device in the rack, behind a flat panel, mounted under a table or integrated into a table hatch. With built-in autosensing, Squid is also the first SurgeX product with universal compatibility with 120–240V, reportedly allowing global companies to simplify installations and spec the same product into offices worldwide. Squid also offers SurgeX Axess Elite capabilities such as sequencing, scheduling, auto-ping, IP Control, monitoring and management, helping integrators reduce service calls through proactive management. The device features built-in diagnostic monitoring, similar to the popular SurgeX enVision, providing a single solution for management, mitigation and control of the system’s power.
Squid measures electrical parameters, including voltage, current, power, frequency, power factor and crest factor. It features an internal storage of 30 days’ worth of max/min/average electrical parameters and provides support for all the leading network security protocols including 802.1x authentication and active directory.
