The VWM Series is the industry's highest capacity and most versatile low-profile solution of its kind Middle Atlantic Products introduces the VWM Series Vertical Wall Cabinet, an expertly engineered wall mount cabinet that completely reimagines equipment mounting for security and AV applications. The VWM Series is the industry's highest capacity and most versatile low-profile solution of its kind, providing vertical mounting of deep equipment as well as small devices — all in one convenient unit. Available in pre-configured models or customisable to exact system specifications through the company's online design experience, the VWM Series utilises a patent-pending modular systems approach to equipment mounting, providing unmatched configurability and systems reliability. Comprehensive flexibility "Our VWM Series Vertical Wall Cabinet is engineered for comprehensive flexibility," said Jay Franetovich, CTS, application specialist at Middle Atlantic Products. "Its innovative, configurable platform allows integrators to quickly install systems and interchange the cabinet options as technology evolves. It's perfect for small to medium networking, surveillance and monitoring, distributed audio, and paging systems." Within its low-profile design, the VWM offers multiple positions for vertical mounting that optimise the cabinet space for the highest density of components of any vertical wall cabinet in the industry. These flexible mounting options include fixed and pivoting rackrail in a range of sizes that can be efficiently mounted where needed within the cabinet's back pan design. The system also utilises the company's patented Lever Lock tool-free mounting system, providing the flexibility to integrate small devices such as extenders, power supplies, electronic door lock controllers, compact power solutions, and more throughout the cabinet's back pan or inside the front door. All-in-one system The VWM Series is available in a variety of options to meet the desired level of system security and access. The system can offer access only to the integrator, or it can allow end-users to access controls, with some options that will even grant visibility via a plexiglass hinged top. The VWM Series Wall Cabinets come pre-configured with all the options integrators need to quickly build out basic installations in a single box. It's ideal for integrators needing a standard design with no customisation and/or requiring an expedited lead-time for projects with tight deadlines. Whether pre-configured or fully customised, the VWM Series is designed to ensure optimal thermal management, cable integrity, and power distribution while providing a secure location for components of all sizes in an all-in-one system.
Integrators can earn up to four CTS, BICSI, or AIA credits As part of its ongoing commitment to deliver the products and services and fully support integrators as technology continues to advance and evolve, Middle Atlantic Products has announced a full month of online training opportunities in celebration of AV Month 2016. As the AV community unites to celebrate, promote, and share the industry with the world, this is a great opportunity for integrators to deepen their expertise and knowledge to better meet the needs of installations today and in the future. Covering some of the latest trends, challenges, and standards arising in the industry, each training session will equip attendees with techniques that can be directly applied in the field. Sessions will be offered online, allowing industry professionals everywhere easy access to the courses. All courses are InfoComm-CTS, BICSI, and AIA certified. Attendees who successfully complete all four courses can earn four CTS, BICSI, and/or AIA credits.

Middle Atlantic Products recently announced expanded capabilities for its premier security enclosure line, the SNE Series. The new End Cable Chase is a full-height, slim enclosure option that optimises the space at the end of an enclosure bay by allowing additional devices to be mounted, including those that would otherwise reside on the wall. This enables the containment of all system components in one enclosure, which adds an additional level of security, frees up space on the wall, and reduces the amount of wiring necessary. The Internal Cable Duct securely and efficiently routes cables within 30"-wide SNE enclosures, ensuring signal performance and system reliability for mission-critical applications. With these new options, the SNE Series gives the security integrator the flexibility to build dependable and solid solutions to meet the specific requirements of IP, analogue and hybrid security systems. "Middle Atlantic strives to design products that make the integrator's job easier, and the SNE Series was engineered with the security market in mind," said Jay Franetovich, Application Engineer at Middle Atlantic. "SNE Series Enclosures are the most strongly certified in the market, empowering security integrators to install reliable systems, whether they are working with digital, analogue, or hybrid components. These new options extend the platform's capabilities to be more inclusive of all potential security components in the room and enhance the reliability of the system." End Cable Chase Building on the SNE offering's seismic certification and raised-floor capabilities, the End Cable Chase gives integrators more space to integrate security components they traditionally could only mount on the wall, such as an alarm panel or access control equipment, as well as smaller devices. The End Cable Chase accommodates the series' signature split side panels to allow integrators easier access to equipment within. It ships preconfigured and incorporates Middle Atlantic's Lever Lock™ system, which facilitates cable management and small device mounting within the enclosure using unique tool-free cable management bars and accessory mounting plates. The top-mounted brush grommet panel provides a clean, organised cable entry method while maintaining critical thermal management to ensure all the components run smoothly. Internal Cable Duct The SNE Series Internal Cable Duct provides integrators with a cost-effective solution for protecting, routing, and organising data cables, patch cords, and power cords inside SNE Series enclosures. Featuring durable plastic cable fingers and a dual hinge front cover, the Internal Cable Duct cleanly routes cables exactly where needed, preventing signal failures due to pinched and bent cables. Integrators can patch cables on multiple levels within the enclosure without modifications or causing potential system compromises.
