Middle Atlantic Set to Broaden DC Power Support in the European Union

Middle Atlantic is helping bring DC power to the E.U thanks in part to its High Power DC Power Distribution Series that originally debuted at ISE 2019.


Middle Atlantic Products, a brand of Legrand | AV, is building upon its commitment of delivering more solutions and support in the European Union (E.U) with local inventory and shipment of region-specific power plugs for its High Power DC Power Distribution Series. The solution was first introduced at ISE 2019 and provides power to support more devices while also eliminating messy, space-consuming power supply units, according to the company.

“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,” says 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.”

According to the company, Middle Atlantic’s High Power DC Power Distribution Series provides high-capacity power options for all system applications, and 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 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 DC power solutions deliver multilevel protection on both AC input and DC outputs with individual redundancy built-in. 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 installation flexibility. The input voltage range of 100-240VAC, 50/60 Hz additionally provides design flexibility for most global applications.
