Customers who currently use Chatsworth Products (CPI) Power IQ® (PIQ) for eConnect® can now download the latest upgrade, PIQ 5.2.2. This current version now provides centralized cabinet-level security status reports and mappings for CPI’s new eConnect Electronic Access Control (EAC).

If you have an eConnect power distribution unit (PDU) that is connected to eConnect EAC, PIQ automatically maps and reports on door and lock status without the need for manual configuration.

PIQ maps front and back doors as siblings to the PDU, and for each access attempt and entry, the software provides audit reports for both the door and lock. Users are also able to remotely access the cabinet through the PIQ interface.

Additional enhancements include:

  • Improved multi-vendor trap support for Avocent, Liebert, and Unite Technologies
  • GUI usability enhancements for clarity and consistency in a more modern look and feel
  • Disabling of TLS 1.0 for the most secure web experience to date
  • Resolution of customer-reported items and other issues
