Award-Winning High Power DC Power Distribution Series Now Shipped From Local Inventory in the E.U. With Region-Specific Power Plugs

Middle Atlantic Products, a brand of Legrand | AV, is building upon its commitment of delivering more solutions and support in the E.U. with local inventory and shipment of region-specific power plugs for its High Power DC Power Distribution Series. The versatile, higher-power-capacity solution was first introduced at ISE 2019 and provides maximum power to support more devices while also eliminating messy, space-consuming power supply units, also known as wall warts, from the AV design.

“Since we introduced our family of High Power DC Power Distribution options last year, the demand and customer requests in the E.U. have been amazing,” said Robert de Jong, director of product marketing, EMEA at Legrand | AV. “Now, all of our E.U-specific DC Power Distribution models are available from our warehouse in Weert, Netherlands. With this product inventory availability, integrators in the region can complete installations with much shorter lead times. This is all part of ensuring our customers can solve today’s AV challenges not only efficiently and quickly but also with maximum reliability.”

Part of the industry’s most comprehensive universal DC power solution for commercial and residential AV, Middle Atlantic’s High Power DC Power Distribution Series provides high-capacity power options for all system applications. The solution provides maximum power to support more devices, while also eliminating messy, space-consuming, unreliable wall warts from the system design. Available in 200W and 300W models, both units offer high current capacity to an industry-leading quantity of outputs — up to 24 devices — in a 5V, 12V, 24V, or 12/24V split unit. In the E.U., customers select the model with the appropriate power plug — either BS 1363 (UK), CEE 7/7 (Schuko), SEV 1011 (Switzerland), or IEC C14 for fast and simple ordering.

The robust DC power solutions deliver reliable multilevel protection on both AC input and DC outputs with individual redundancy built-in to ensure maximum reliability. The multimount design can be installed in an available 1RU space or at the back or side of the rack for zero-U mounting and ultimate installation flexibility. The input voltage range of 100-240VAC, 50/60 Hz additionally provides design flexibility for most global applications.
