Lowell Manufacturing ACR-1507 Series of Products Provide Convenient Connectivity

The Lowell Manufacturing ACR-1507-SSI-FC is the company’s latest equipment rack accessory and offers front-mounted network connections.


Making integrators’ lives easier, the newly announced Lowell ACR-1507 line of products incorporate features to enable easy network connections.

Lowell Manufacturing says that its latest rack accessories are 19-inch solutions that are engineered to provide easy access to network connections from the front of the rack via pass-through connectivity ports.

The St. Louis, Mo.-based manufacturer of rack components, distributed audio components, power management devices and rack accessories that include thermal management, points out that its new products feature RJ-45 or USB A/B ports.

According to the company, the inclusion of these front-mounted ports enables integrators to quickly connect laptops to audio, security and main networks without having to maneuver behind racks. The products also include white areas above the units’ ports to help integrators to quickly identify the purpose of the respective ports.

In addition, Lowell Manufacturing notes the products also offer five charging ports that include USB-C PD and USB 3.0, and banks of NEMA 5-15R power outlets with surge suppression that protect connected equipment from surges and spikes up to 40,000 amps.
