Extron and Middle Atlantic Partner to Invent New Rack Mount Standard

Mmountstandard-0212iddle Atlantic Products, in conjunction with Extron Electronics, is initiating and supporting the establishment of a new standard for half-width rack systems for AV integration.
Working in cooperation with the Electronic Components Industry Association (ECIA), Extron and Middle Atlantic are seeking to establish and maintain a specific ECIA standard for what has typically been offered as a custom rack offering until now. To further strengthen the quality and application of the standard, the two companies are inviting manufacturers of compact-format devices to join a communication and working group for this effort.
Both manufacturers have recently developed product families — the Extron Half Rack Shelf System and Middle Atlantic’s new HR Series Half Racks — which both fit within and incorporate the proposed 10 5/8” overall width defined in the proposed new standard.
