Middle Atlantic Products Announces European Compliance Of Thermal Management Solutions

Middle Atlantic Products thermal solutions are now CE marked and RoHS compliant.

AMSTERDAM, THE NETHERLANDS, 29 January 2008 – Middle Atlantic Products today announced the European market compliance and availability of its new Quiet-Cool Series™ of AV component cooling devices, as well as its new Designer Inspired Ultra Quiet Fan Panels (IUQFP), at ISE 2008. Now fully RoHS compliant and CE listed, the new Quiet-Cool Series and IUQFP solutions are designed to quietly and effectively remove heat from critical areas where high temperatures can impact the performance and lifespan of AV electronics.

The Quiet Cool Series and IUQFP are thermal management solutions that have been carefully engineered with residential integrators in mind to ensure easy installation and consistently effective heat removal for a variety of common residential AV applications.

· Designed to exhaust heat from AV components located in open shelving, The Component Cooler removes heat right at the source. The Component Cooler installs directly on top of components that emit large amounts of heat, such as cable and satellite boxes and switches on automatically when a component starts to get too hot. Small and unobtrusive, Component Coolers can be used individually or in multiples for efficient cooling of stacked components.

· For AV systems installed in a custom cabinet or entertainment center, The Cabinet Cooler quietly pulls heat from within an enclosed space and vents it away from components.

· Designed in collaboration with residential systems integrators, the Cabinet Cooler incorporates a thermostatically controlled ultra-quiet fan unit and installs easily, requiring only a standard holesaw and drill. The attractive vent cover can be painted to match the aesthetics of any entertainment center.

· Larger home AV systems that reside within a closet require a significant amount of ventilation to ensure that components do not fail from excessive heat. The Closet Cooler features a solid oak panel that conceals ultra-quiet, thermostatically controlled fans and a matching vent panel (or active intake, depending on model). Closet Cooler panels can be stained or painted to match any room’s decor, and installs easily in the top and bottom of a closet door.

· With an intelligent digital processor that varies fan speed proportionate to internal cabinet temperature and a remote notification system that indicates fan failure or overheating, Designer Inspired IUQFP fan panels maintain a safe enclosure temperature; minimize noise (less than 27 dB); and maximize energy expenditure. Designer Inspired IUQFP‘s faceplate features a dimmable blue LED display that allows end-users to reduce or increase the display brightness simply by touching it.

All of Middle Atlantic Products‘ thermal management solutions ship with the appropriate adapter plugs and work on 220V electrical systems.

“These thermal management solutions are all extremely quiet and effectively vent hot air without wasting energy,” noted Stephen Fried, Manager of International Sales, Middle Atlantic Products. “Now more than ever, Middle Atlantic Products offers the residential systems community a comprehensive array of thermal solutions that protect and cool AV components without compromising the aesthetic appeal of a room.”
