DC Distribution and C3 Credenza awarded
FAIRFIELD, N.J. — Middle Atlantic Products, a brand of Legrand | AV, today announced that its new C3 Credenza and High Power DC Power Distribution Series were honored with two industry awards at ISE 2019 in Amsterdam. The stylish, slim-profile C3 Credenza received Commercial Integrator’s Top New Technology Award and the High Power DC Power Distribution Series earned AV Technology Europe’s Best of Show Award.
“The AV use case is proliferating internationally, and with that has come a new set of installation and power challenges that integrators must address to create the best, most reliable user experience,” said Timothy Troast, vice president, Middle Atlantic Products. “We launched the C3 Credenza and High Power DC Power Distribution Series with the goal of supporting global applications. These awards are a great industry recognition of the relationship we have built with our customers, who have partnered with us to help design products that overcome the power and infrastructure hurdles in a rapidly changing marketplace.”
Featuring all the mounting ingenuity and system reliability that are synonymous with the Middle Atlantic name, the C3 Credenza is the latest purpose-built solution within the company’s broad AV furniture portfolio. It not only offers convenient localized AV support while saving valuable real estate but also grants users unimpeded access to interactive flat panels in the room. Packed within the credenza’s mere 10-inch-deep profile is a rack system that grants full visibility during installation and equipment mounting options designed for today’s devices, saving integrators time on the job and giving them the assurance that sensitive conference or media room equipment is protected. It’s available in styles and finishes that complement the world’s latest design trends, and in two-bay or four-bay models to balance the needs of single- or dual-display applications, respectively.
Part of the industry’s most comprehensive universal DC Power solution for commercial and residential AV from Middle Atlantic, the High Power DC Power Distribution Series provides high-capacity power options for global installations. The solution provides maximum power to support more devices, while also eliminating messy, space-consuming, unreliable wall warts from the AV design. Available in 200W and 300W models, both units offer 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. The robust 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. A supported input voltage range of 100-240VAC, 50/60 Hz additionally provides design flexibility for most global applications.
For the TNT Awards, a team of judges rated top new products across 18 commercial categories. The entrants were judged on their technological innovation, benefits to the integrator, and benefits to the end user, independent from one another. For AV Technology Europe’s Best of Show awards, a panel judged the entries on the show floor.
