LONDON Deltron-Emcon, the UK-based manufacturing arm of Deltron Electronics Group, has presented Argosy-Cable Warehouse with a special gold award to acknowledge their outstanding sales of Media MDU12L mains distribution units.
Argosy, who is based in Long Crendon, Buckinghamshire, cooperated with Deltron- Emcon in the MDU12L’s design process two years ago and, in the first year following its introduction on the broadcasting, professional audio and video markets, doubled the preceding MDU sales figures. The company then achieved a further 100 per cent year on year increase in 2004.
The 12-way MDU12L mains distribution unit benefits from several design improvements including integrated circuitry in place of the previous hard wiring and a one-piece back panel fabrication, which cuts customers costs 15 per cent over the previous MDU.
For installation in standard equipment racking, the MDU12L takes a 16A mains power input and distributes up to 6A current through each of its twelve socket outlets to connected equipment such as video tape recorders (VTRs) and other media devices. Red and green LEDs on the MDU’s front panel indicate whether or not outputs are active and a sequential switching version is available providing a small delay between each output going live or shutting off thereby protecting against possible power surges when the distribution unit is turned on or off. A 16A output on the back panel enables connection in series to another 12-way MDU, which reduces the number of mains outlets required in multiple equipment installations.
Ken Eckardt, Argosy managing director, said, “The MDU12L has proved to be very popular with our existing customers in the broadcasting industry and is helping win many new ones.”
