Panamax/Furman today introduced a new vertical power strip for A/V equipment racks. The Vertex VT-EXT provides integrators with eight outlets (three with transformer spacing), addresses ground loop issues with specialized mounting brackets and simplifies cord management to reduce installation time. The vertical power strip is designed to be used in conjunction with a Panamax/Furman power management unit for providing clean, safe power, further extending Panamax and Furman’s advanced protection and filtration technologies to connected equipment.
The Vertex VT-EXT features mounting clips with plastic spacers that allow the strip to be mounted vertically to an equipment rack while helping to prevent ground loop issues. The unit’s vertical orientation allows integrators to use various length component power cords to save space, eliminate cord clutter and drastically reduce installation time. In addition, the unit features a detachable 10-foot power cord that can easily be swapped out for a shorter cord if desired.
The Vertex VET-EXT can be used as a stand-alone power strip, or as an extension of an existing Panamax/Furman power management component. By plugging the power strip into the Panamax/Furman unit, the company’s protection and filtration technologies will be extended to connected equipment to improve component performance and ensure equipment longevity.
