CHATSWORTH, CA – When powering several units in a rack, tangled cords and power surges can become a problem. Connectivity solutions provider Gefen offers an easy way to eliminate messy power cords behind the audio/video rack.
The Power Rack 54 and 58 both come in a rack mountable enclosure equipped with four or eight 5-volt power supplies. Each product uses one 24-volt power supply to streamline cords and centralize power distribution.
“The Power Rack 54 and 58 are designed to complement Gefen’s high definition video extension solutions over CAT-5 and CAT-6 cables,” said Hagai Gefen, president and CEO, Gefen Inc. “Both alleviate cable congestion in the rack area.”
Both Power Racks offer a grounding wire to provide maximum safety. Through step-down power, both Gefen Power Racks prevent signal degradation, particularly when powering VGA, component and audio devices. Over-current ability protects against power surges, while the metal enclosure offers electromagnetic shielding.
