nVent SCHROFF Launches New Safety and Power Distribution Unit

nVent Electric plc (NYSE: NVT) ("nVent") is pleased to announce the addition of common North American voltages to the Rack Safety Plus line of modular safety and power distribution units designed to protect and connect electronics enclosed within 19" cabinets.

Designed in collaboration with Test and Measurement customers, these 19” slide-in units provide power entry, power distribution and safety features that are required for operating semi- and fully automated test systems. Key features of Rack Safety Plus include configurable power outlets, input connectors, and safety functions such as an emergency power button. Updates to the new North American versions include compatibility with 120VAC or 208/240VAC input power, configurable NEMA Type 5 outlets, and c(UL)us listing (pending)."Because of the modular concept customers save time and costs; no longer will customers have to develop and manufacture this component for their infrastructure themselves" says Christian Ganninger, Global Product Manager for Embedded Systems.

Pre-Certified Solutions

Rack Safety Plus is CE-certified, with UL certification underway. Using nVent’s innovative online configurator, users can customize Rack Safety Plus to fit their specific application without losing any approvals, saving customers the time and expense of additional CE/UL testing.

Faults are displayed on the front of the unit and an external EPO can be attached to the unit and the EPO status signal is accessible for external devices as well.

Modular and Configurable

120 and 208 / 240 V AC inputs available for common North American and international voltages, with a wide variety of input connectors. The input is protected by a circuit breaker and optional EMC filter.

Rear outputs can be configured with NEMA 5-15R, 5-20R, C13, and C19 outlets for AC voltages. Optional DC outputs can be configured to provide 5V, 12V, 24V, and 28V DC power.

Service outlets can be added to the front or rear of any unit, providing access to mains power even when individual outputs are switched off.

All outputs are protected with individual circuit breakers mounted on the front of the unit, providing easy identification and reset in the case of a fault.

Additional overvoltage protection units and current limiting modules can also be integrated. This functionality is useful to prevent circuit breaker shut-off caused by overload when the test application is equipped with several devices turned on simultaneously via the main switch.

While Rack Safety Plus is designed as one unit that integrates the safety and power distribution functions in one 19” case, the power and safety functions can be separated into two enclosures upon customer request.

Individual branding and customization is possible with custom paint colors, logos and printing.

For those customers who need a solution quickly, several common configurations are immediately available from stock.

With the launch of Rack Safety Plus in North America, nVent SCHROFF continues to support Test and Measurement customers with reliable solutions to save development time and money
