Designing power distribution centers just got a whole lot easier. Our new online configuration tool, which launches today, lets you configure standard and custom AMAXX® power distribution centers in just a few mouse clicks.

The AMAXX line consists of high performance non-metallic enclosures that can hold many different combinations of disconnects and receptacles—including switched-and-interlocked, GFCI and NEMA devices. AMAXX enclosures are available in one- to five-gang units, all UL listed.

With the explosion of cloud computing, there's a growing need to run large numbers of identical servers in data centers around the world.

Localized data centers are a good thing from a computing standpoint, but they do create an often-­overlooked power problem: Server equipment designed for one locale can't necessarily use the same wiring devices as servers designed for another locale.

With all the different motor disconnects on the market, the best choice for your application isn’t always obvious. But if you follow a few simple specification steps, you’ll end up with the right disconnect switch every time. Over the next few blog posts, we’ll examine those steps in detail, starting today with the importance of the operating environment.

Modular power distribution systems typically feature polymer enclosures, which are lightweight and easy to install. Sometimes, however, the application or environment calls for stainless steel enclosures. That’s where our SpecMAXX system comes in.

Intended for industrial and commercial use, SpecMAXX features 304 stainless steel, UL-approved enclosures with 15-degree sloped roofs that shed liquids when cleanliness counts. Shrouded side walls protect cover mounted devices from impact so the SpecMAXX can work in the most demanding environments.
