Logisys Remote Multifunction Panel

Although still in development, today we'll be sharing a rare look at the pre-production model of the Logisys Remote Multifunction Panel. This unit features one Firewire IEEE-1394 port, two USB 2.0 ports, two temperature gauges, and a case fan speed controller. In addition, there is also a power and reset indicator LEDs on the front of the unit. The interesting part of this unit, however, is the remote functionality it offers. Through a small remote, roughly the size of a remote car starter, the computer in which the receiving unit is connected can be restarted or turned off/on by the touch of a button. Keep in mind, what we are looking at today is a pre-production unit so all of the details are yet to be finalized.

Features:

· Dual USB 2.0 connectors
· IEEE -1394 (Firewire) port
· Adjustable (slider) fan speed controller
· Two temperature gauges
· Remote controller key for turning computer on/off and restart

Among the numerous Logisys products we've reviewed at Phoronix, this is the first item to come in an OEM-style white container. The reason for this lack of artwork and a fancy container, that we've been so accustom to seeing from Logisys in the past, is due to its pre-production status. Inside, we found a power supply input pass-through cable, power on signal cable, reset signal cable, antenna, antenna receiving cable with expansion slot plate, two temperature sensor cables, remote, USB cable, IEEE-1394 cable, and the actual 5.25" unit. Also included with this pre-production unit was a small user's manual. Upon receiving this unit, we found that the receiving cable was damaged substantially, with the main part of the receiving cable not even coming in contact with the the connector. However, this was easily repairable, as we'll talk more in-depth later on in this article. Logisys has stated they'll be producing the Remote Multifunction Panel in both silver and black, with the model we're looking at today being black.
