TSL Products Develops ‘IP Control Buddy’ for Device Control, Efficient Workflow
The IP Control Buddy is a powerful yet compact control system. Use it standalone or integrated with a larger 3rd party control system, to quickly and cost-effectively get the job done.
Controlling any GPI/O, IP, RS422, or RS232 enabled device, located anywhere, from a single button push, the IP Control Buddy can perform simple or complex functions and is perfect for flyaway kits, small production tasks, and one-button applications, powered with Power over Ethernet (PoE) or an external power supply.
The IP Control Buddy can be combined with other devices, such as Ensemble Designs’ ultra-compact BrightEye NXT routers to manage sources and signal paths under conditions where space is at a premium.
The panel’s ‘programmer-free’ web browser-based configuration tools make it easy to configure IP Control Buddy for specific control and monitoring applications.
