Middle Atlantic intelligently fills the gap
Middle Atlantic’s Select Series PDU with RackLink offers vertical, compact and traditional rackmount enclosures intended to simplify installation while reducing the cost of service by providing ‘intelligent power optimised for A/V systems’. ‘This combination extends control from traditional enclosures to hard to reach displays and everything in between,’ states Middle Atlantic’s Scott Lowder.
The Select Series PSU comprises five 15A models of varying form factors: two-outlet compact, four-outlet rackmount, nine-outlet rackmount, 10-outlet low-profile vertical, and 16-outlet vertical. All of the models integrate RackLink technology which the manufacturer describes as ‘providing integrators with real-time visibility and control over the power distribution and status of any installation from anywhere in the world’, and is designed to provide reliability and ensure uptime via pre-emptive problem notifications and automatic problem resolution. IP-enabled control of the device can also be achieved both locally and virtually, over the internet and through mobile devices (via apps).
A new unit has also been added to Middle Atlantic’s RSH Series of custom rackshelves. The new 1U model features a custom-cut faceplate that accommodates the particular component being installed. This single rack unit saves installation space when installing smaller devices that previously required a 2U shelf. The shelve features a ‘face-after’ faceplate design that can reportedly accommodate multiple device mounting and clamping solutions as required.
