Middle Atlantic Launches Premium+ PDU with RackLink Power Distribution

Middle Atlantic has announced the release of the Premium+ PDU with RackLink, a next- generation power distribution and management system that leverages Raritan’s XERUS platform. 

With individual outlet power cycling/logging/monitoring, advanced environmental monitoring and control and maximum security, Middle Atlantic said it delivers a comprehensive suite of control, data and security capabilities that assure the highest degree of network safety while eliminating unnecessary maintenance.

RackLink allows integrators control either locally or virtually through third-party AV control systems, cloud platforms, RESTful API and SNMP for flexible management. In addition, it's developed around Raritan's XERUS platform, a trusted solution for the most secure networks in the world.

Together, this power distribution and management solution provides monitoring, control, logging, security and power protection capabilities available for the most demanding AV applications.

Available in horizontal rackmount and compact models, the new product provides under/over voltage, filtering and surge protection. It also provides accurate power monitoring and logging for current, voltage, watts and power factor at the outlet level. This system insight enables integrators to understand exactly what any AV system is doing at any moment.

Helping to curb the problems that heat and humidity in the rack can create, it features enhanced environmental monitoring capabilities with up to 32 individual sensors that can connect to a single unit to keep tabs on temperature and humidity.
