Middle Atlantic Products is now stocking and shipping the High Power DC Distribution solution, which the company says is “solving the installation challenges posed by powering a high density of DC-powered components with similar voltages.”
The new 200W and 300W models “provide high-current capacity to an industry-leading quantity of outputs — up to 24 devices — maximizing the same voltage in a single unit, 5V, 12V, or 24V, or splitting between 12/24V,” according to a Middle Atlantic press release.
“When we introduced the DC Power Distribution family two years ago, for the first time we made it possible for integrators to install the growing number of DC-powered small devices easily in a rack and reliably power them,” said Scott Lowder, director of product management for power at Middle Atlantic, in the company announcement.
“Since then, our customers have anxiously awaited models that would meet their higher power and density system demands. With these new solutions, customers can solve every power requirement that comes their way,” he said.
Middle Atlantic’s DC power distribution solutions “give AV consultants, integrators, and installers access to the broadest DC power distribution portfolio available,” according to the company press release.
“They not only remove messy, space-consuming, unreliable wall warts from the design and provide maximum power to support, but they also increase system efficiency, which saves energy and reduces heat generation,” according to the announcement.
The new 200W and 300W deliver the same features as the family’s 45W DC compact and 125W DC 1-RU systems. The multilevel protection on both AC input and DC outputs and built-in individual redundancy “ensure maximum uptime,” according to the Middle Atlantic press release.
The multi-mount design can be installed in an available 1-RU space or at the back or side of the rack for zero-U mounting. A supported input voltage range of 100-240VAC, 50/60 Hz provides additional design flexibility for international applications.
