Legrand has released the AC1031, a 110V power strip module for On-Q enclosures designed to power up to six devices.
“Power has traditionally been the biggest struggle in a structured wiring cabinet, due to differing requirements and sizes,” said Fritz Werder, vice president and general manager, Legrand Home Systems Division. “As a leading supplier of structured wiring in new homes today, we are addressing the market demand of having increased technology built into homes by having more active electronics – and ultimately – more power requirements.”
Legrand has been working to standardize its power systems to use 12V / 24V and 48V systems by creating power distribution modules to handle those requirements, as well as developing innovative power strips to mount multiple devices that may be installed within a home, such as Legrand’s PW1120 / PW1240 modules.
After analyzing purchasing patterns and customer feedback, Legrand developed the AC1031 to address future requirements as technology shifts. Using the knowledge acquired from traditional power strips and merging it with learning’s from the PW1120 and PW1240, Legrand married function with aesthetics to create an optimized power management solution to meet the needs of all different types of power requirements that are used in today’s homes.
The AC1031 takes up half the cabinet space of a traditional power tap system and simultaneously creates an easy mounting method for the power supplies used with Legrand’s digital subsystems of audio, intercom, cameras and Unity.
