We design and build a new class of power distribution units for the entertainment industry. We provide innovative technology paired with durable mechanical design and new levels of safety and protection for you and your equipment. We will enable you and your clients to stay safe, protected and ahead of the competition.
Increased load capacity
We use a hydraulic-magnetic circuit breakers that are built for extreme durability and can handle the troublesome start-up currents that modern lighting and video panels cause. Our breakers can handle 2-3 times as many LED panels as conventional power distribution units and they support their rated current specifications in a wide range of a temperatures.
No compromise safety
You are required by law to provide protection against electric shock by using earth leakage protection devices, but very often this is done the wrong way, leading to a lot of issues. We do it the best way possible – individual protection per circuit. This way you get minimum interruption and no need to spend valuable time finding out which circuit caused issue.
No nuisance tripping
Lost neutral protection
Over-voltage due to a lost neutral connection damages products all the time and the cost of the repair, lost revenue and the significant down-time waiting for spare parts is significant. We took the time and trouble to develop a fast effective ‘loss-of-neutral’ sensor that disconnects all connected loads from the mains immediately.
No more guesswork
Is everything fine? Are all loads connected, are there any issues with the electricity? Fair questions to ask but hard to answer – unless you’re working with a Stage Smarts system. We provide crystal clear information about all aspects of the electrical power situation, down to individual outlets. Accessible locally and remotely. And if something happens, our battery backed-up monitoring will stay online to help you solve the issue.
Use it everywhere
Electrical standards, rules and regulations are broadly the same but there are some differences between countries. Our systems comply to all known national and regional rules. For example, that’s why we have E-stops (emergency shut down) fitted to our systems. With a Stage Smarts system, you can work anywhere and not worry about getting shut down by the Inspectors.
“The build quality and forward thinking design of the Stage Smarts power distribution has really impressed us. They gives us peace of mind on-site as it ensures that our team and the equipment is totally protected”
ARRI and Creative Technology commit to the future of film together with StageSmarts
Within their specification, CT included StageSmarts’ SmartPDU distros. “We used to use conventional distro systems,” explains Burford, “and yes, the Stage Smarts solution is more expensive, but we switched because our background is in live events, and you only get one go at that – you don’t get another take!”.
Come join us. StageSmarts will be exhibiting at Prolight+sound in Frankfurt on the 26 - 29 of April 2022. After a long time of restrictions we can finally meet with you again and show you what we been working on since the last time we attended the show in 2019....
“The smartPDU has given me real peace of mind from being able to monitor the power load on each circuit at all times during events so I can be sure our lighting fixtures are fully protected from accidental overload.”
