Laird Introduces Power Breakout Boxes to Simplify Power Cable Management

Laird Digital Cinema has announced the availability of their PAC series of rugged power breakout boxes and adapter cables to simplify power distribution.

Featuring Neutrik powerCON connectors, Laird said the PAC series inline power solutions simplify power distribution and improve cable management for stage, live events, and film and TV production in permanent or temporary installations.

Laird PAC breakout boxes are built with a single connection that is broken out to four standard NEMA or four powerCON outlets, depending on model, in a heavy duty, powder-coated aluminum enclosure that is shock resistant.

A pass through port allows for AC line extension. The powerCON locking chassis connectors provide safe power connection with circuit breakers to protect against overloading.

Accessories include IEC adapter cables, 20A extension cables and male/female combo chassis connectors that also feature Neutrik powerCON locking connectors.
