Panamax and Furman Launch New Power Solutions to Protect and Manage AV Equipment

Delivering systems integrators exceptional power solutions for their AV systems, Nortek Security & Control, a global leader in wireless security, home automation, access control and health and wellness technology, today announced the introduction of new Panamax and Furman power distribution solutions.

“Every installation starts with power, and our new Panamax and Furman power distribution solutions keep systems protected and racks organized,” said Nortek Security & Control Power Product Manager Christos Desalernos. “These new additions work with Panamax and Furman power conditioners to extend protected clean power in the system rack as well as remote locations.”

Panamax Vertex 12 and 16 Outlet Power Distribution Units

Two new Panamax vertical power distribution units – the VT-EXT12 and VT-EXT16 – add flexible protected power to the system rack. The 12 and 16 outlet configurations mount vertically at the back of the rack, placing power where it’s needed and reducing cable lengths. The slim design of each unit allows for easy work-flow, while clip mounts make for a quick installation. The spacing allows for large transformers, such as wall warts. The 12-inch heavy duty extension cable – the 15-EXT1 – is ideal for extra-large transformer and wall warts.

While all Panamax Vertex models can be used as stand-alone Power Distribution Units, when plugged into Panamax and Furman power conditioners they share all the AC line protection and AC line filtering from the power conditioner to distribute protection and performance to extra outlets in the rack.

Panamax IEC Cable Accessories

For clean cabling, four new Panamax IEC Cables Accessories provide power to monitors, TVs, sound systems, and appliances that have the IEC-60320-C14 inlet. The 10-foot 15-IEC10, 6-foot 15-IEC6, 3-foot 15-IEC3, and 1-foot 15-IEC1 are ideal for connected equipment requiring power up to 15 amps.

Furman SS-6B-PRO Power Distribution Unit

Featuring Furman Extreme Voltage Shutdown (EVS), the new Furman SS-6B-PRO is a 6-outlet power block that adds Furman Extreme Voltage Shutdown (EVS) to the legendary performance and flexibility on the Furman SS-6B. The new unit also delivers EMI/RFI filtration, heavy duty steel construction, and a 15ft. power cord. According to Desalernos, the incredibly versatile SS-6B-PRO “is as comfortable behind the residential equipment rack as it is on stage or in the office.

Concluded Desalernos, “we listen to our integrators and these power extension solutions were high on their list of asks. Getting all these accessories on the same order as their power conditioning simplifies their ordering process. And for integrators on our Dealer Rewards program, these of course go toward their program totals.”
