devolo expands its professional dLAN® product line even further: With the dLAN® 500 AVpro+, the Powerline specialist presents an adapter of the 500 Mbit class with integrated electrical socket. In order to guarantee a secure installation, particularly in public areas, the model is compatible with the Kensington Lock system. Centralised administration of all adapter functions is possible via the AVpro manager remote management solution.

Adapter model with integrated electrical socket and mains filterFlexible network connections for commercial areas: With the 500 Mbit dLAN® 500 AVpro+ adapter, devolo extends its product line of professional Powerline solutions. The adapter is equipped with a gigabit LAN connection for use in state-of-the-art IT systems. The adapter also has an integrated electrical socket, onto which terminal devices and power strips can be connected; in this way, no power outlet goes to waste. Furthermore, devolo integrated a mains filter, which further improves the Powerline data transmission in that interference is reliably eliminated.

Developed for professional Powerline networks

devolo developed the dLAN® 500 AVpro+ for Powerline connections in the professional area. The special dLAN® PROFESSIONAL architecture allows the use of up to 64 adapters within a network. In this way, even complex connection solutions can be implemented. All types of data transmission are secured with a 128-bit AES encryption. The dLAN® Powerline adapter is equipped with the Quality of Service performance feature for particularly stable connections. Through this automatic data prioritisation, an interference-free transmission of real time services such as Voice over IP or IPTV is guaranteed.

Efficient remote maintenance via dLAN® AVpro manager

devolo is the only manufacturer offering software-protected monitoring and control of professionally used Powerline adapters. The high-performance AVpro manager remote management tool supports the administrator in configuring and monitoring the Powerline network. In this way, dLAN®-PROFESSIONAL installations can not only be controlled efficiently, but also can be customised and adapted to the usage scenario. For example, various adapter functions such as PowerSave mode, encryption button and status LED can be deactivated. Firmware updates can be run just as conveniently on all adapters, network-wide.

Energy-efficient operation with PowerSave technology

In order to ensure a particularly energy-efficient operation, devolo features Dynamic PowerSave technology in the dLAN® 500 AVpro+. It reduces energy consumption automatically when the adapter is not needed. In addition, power consumption is adapted dynamically.

The dLAN® 500 AVpro+ from the dLAN® PROFESSIONAL portfolio is available in electronics stores in December 2012. The recommended retail price is 74.90 euros for the individual product and 139.90 euros for the starter kit with two adapters. Like all dLAN® products, the dLAN® 500 AVpro+ was developed and tested by devolo in Germany. devolo provides a three-year warranty.
