Gefen Announces Two New Solutions to Streamline Power Cords in the Rack Area

Two New Power Racks from Gefen Clean the Rack Area and Prevent Against Power Surges

CHATSWORTH, CA - When powering several units in a rack, tangled cords and power surges can become a problem. Connectivity solutions provider Gefen offers an easy way to eliminate messy power cords behind the audio/video rack.


The Power Rack 54 and 58 both come in a rack mountable enclosure equipped with four or eight 5 -volt power supplies. Each product uses one 24 -volt power supply to streamline cords and centralize power distribution.

"The Power Rack 54 and 58 are designed to complement Gefen's high definition video extension solutions over CAT -5 and CAT -6 cables," said Hagai Gefen, president and CEO, Gefen Inc. "Both alleviate cable congestion in the rack area."

Both Power Racks offer a grounding wire to provide maximum safety. Through step -down power, both Gefen Power Racks prevent signal degradation, particularly when powering VGA, component and audio devices. Over -current ability protects against power surges, while the metal enclosure offers electromagnetic shielding.

The kit allows use of the video entry phone system via a door entry monitor as well as tablets and smartphones on the Wi-Fi network, or remotely on 3G (or higher) networks. The gateway in the pack allows connection of other devices (Comelit VIP door entry monitors or PCs) besides the door entry monitor supplied. In all cases, the gateway should be connected to an ASDL router or another device guaranteeing local Wi-Fi and mobile 3G connectivity. Depending on bandwidth limitations, the gateway can serve up to 15 appliances (including door entry monitors, smartphones, tablets and PCs) with 4 simultaneous door entry monitor streams. It also allows "intercom" communication between all of the 16 devices served. For mobile devices, whenever both modes are available and enabled, the app automatically switches. .
