White Paper on Power from Middle Atlantic
Enclosure systems manufacturer Middle Atlantic Products, with the stated goal of providing integrators with “a clear understanding of power distribution and grounding of audio, video and telecommunications equipment,” released a free white paper called “Integrating Electronic Equipment and Power into Rack Enclosures.”
The white paper is a collaboration between Bob Schluter, Middle Atlantic’s president and chief engineer, Jensen Transformers President Bill Whitlock, and Neil Muncy Associations President Neil Muncy. It provides installers with “a basic understanding of effective power distribution while offering tips and tricks for avoiding common problems,” said Middle Atlantic. Topics are based on the 2005 version of the National Electrical Code (NEC) and include an overview of product safety certifications, grounding guidelines and wiring types, among others, it said.
“The intent of this paper isn’t to teach integrators how to be electricians,” said Schulter. “Rather, it examines potential problems during installation and helps integrators anticipate and, hopefully, avoid them.”
