Key Digital Announces Compass Control Pro Partner Alliance with SurgeX from AMETEK Electronic Systems Protection

Mount Vernon, NY – March 30, 2017– Key Digital, the Leaders in Digital Video and control systems, announces an exciting alliance with SurgeX and their web enabled power conditioning management system Access Elite. SurgeX joins Key Digital’s Compass Control Pro Partner Alliance program and its impressive and constantly growing list of integration products streamlined within the software.   

Key Digital is an award winning developer and manufacturer of leading-edge digital video processing and video signal distribution solutions.  Key Digital also designed the first fully integrated control system built from the ground up to use iOS and Android, Compass Control Pro.  Compass Control Pro offers modular programming or custom design with a blank slate that is limited only by imagination.  Compass Control Pro Partner Alliances pre-configured control drivers, modules, and GUI templates integrate instantly and seamlessly to save on precious programming time.

The innovative Axess Elite management system gives users outlet-level control, monitoring and management of a system’s energy and power usage. Axess Elite also collects temperature, voltage measurements and current draw measurements and reports back via a user-friendly energy and power usage display. In addition, the Axess Elite features SurgeX patented Advanced Series Mode surge elimination technology, which completely eliminates surge energy without producing harmful side effects.

“The Compass Control system is one of the most powerful and complete control solutions available for use with Apple iOS devices, and we’re proud to earn certification for SurgeX Axess products. Key Digital is creating tremendous opportunities for installers and end users to reap the benefits of smart energy management,” said Rick Komendera, vice president, Global Accounts. “Our Axess products work especially well with automation systems because they offer remote monitoring and management functionality, more efficient operating conditions and real-time alerts, all while protecting Compass Control hardware from surges and other harmful power anomalies.”
