Middle Atlantic Highlights Cloud Technologies at CEDIA Expo
Middle Atlantic boasts that its Premium+ PDUs are more than standard power distribution products. In addition to the product line’s new cloud capability, Middle Atlantic says its RackLink offers the flexibility to allow integrators to control system power through the native RackLink UI, as well as third-party AV control systems such as Crestron, partner platforms, RESTful API, and SNMP. The firmware update will also make the system compatible with Crestron XiO Cloud with native support of RackLink’s intelligent system control, logging and data management, environmental control, and protection features.
Middle Atlantic points out the Premium+ PDU products are available in horizontal rackmount and compact models, providing under/over voltage, filtering, and surge protection via the company’s Series Protection technology. The products also provide accurate power monitoring and logging for current, voltage, watts, and power factor at the outlet level. Middle Atlantic says this deep system insight enables integrators to understand exactly what any AV system is doing at any moment to help prevent situations such as the problems that heat and humidity in the rack can create. The PDUs feature enhanced environmental monitoring capabilities with up to 32 individual sensors that can connect to a single unit to keep tabs on temperature and humidity.
Finally, the products are designed to enable integrators to solve simple problems through flexible control options for proactive system management and restoration if equipment issues occur, including IP, RESTful API, SNMP v3/MIB, CLI, RS-232, and dry contact.
Middle Atlantic stresses the NEXSYS platform combines PDUs and UPSs with a common design, both internal and external, for a consistent aesthetic. Every NEXSYS PDU solution comes with 15-amp and 20-amp options, ensuring that every installation has the amperage for the equipment with surge and selectable voltage protection standard on all models. Customers can also choose either the patented Series Protection or enhanced multi-stage MOV surge protection.
Moreover, the NEXSYS ENERGY STAR certified UPS adds features that make monitoring effortless: an LCD panel showing status and critical data, like battery life remaining; RackLink compatibility for remote monitoring and control; optional temperature and humidity sensor to provide proactive AV system health benefits.
Middle Atlantic adds the line includes features to make installation easy such as ultra-slim design with a pre-installed four-post mounting kit, along with integrated rack ears for rack mounting, as well as an IEC inlet to support any power cable length requirement.
