New Configurator Aims to Redefine Middle Atlantic Customer Experience


Fairfield, NJ––Middle Atlantic Products is unveiling a new web-based configuration tool that enables customers to easily select, configure, quote and purchase the precise infrastructure system to fit their project needs. Based on extensive research and feedback from the company’s integration partners, the platform was developed to improve nearly every facet of the customer experience.

Available in October, this new tool will allow users to create a personalized design with the right products and accessories for any type of system along with a priced materials list. Further enhancing the company’s website, which was redesigned earlier this year, this new configuration tool will be accessible from anywhere in the world with internet access, on any browser-enabled device.

Designed for anyone from beginner to expert, users can be guided through the configuration process or they can choose to build a system at their own pace.
With built-in intelligence to ensure that only components that fit can be selected and smart recommendations along the way, the Configurator helps users build the most effective and reliable system.

Commenting on the new configuration tool, Middle Atlantic VP of Sales Dan Tarkoff said, “We wanted to build a solution that would radically improve the ease with which customers do business with us. We have the broadest range of products in the industry and wanted a way to simplify the process of finding the right fit for every project. The Configurator gives them the freedom to design configure, customize and order reliable systems whenever they want.”

The Configurator enables users to export CAD and other design documents to be easily integrated into their standard design process. It enables 24/7 access to a stored history of user projects, the ability to create new projects, and convenient direct online ordering.

Users interested in being the first to be notified when the tool goes live can sign up at http://www.middleatlantic.com/config.

Torus Power Delivers Premier Toroidal Isolation Power Conditioning Lineup for improved audio-video performance; Showcased at CEDIA Expo 2014

TORONTO, ON, CANADA & DENVER, CO (CEDIA EXPO BOOTH #1066) SEPT. 10, 2014 – Torus Power, maker of uncompromising isolation transformer-based power components and a subsidiary of Plitron Manufacturing, will be showcasing a variety of its popular and versatile power conditioners at CEDIA Expo 2014, including the premier AVR2 Series and the popular entry-level TOT Series. Torus Power’s line of reliable, affordable toroidal isolation power conditioners provide clean, protected power to custom audio video installations of nearly any size or configuration, whether it is a large home theater or commercial venue, significantly improving sound and video quality and performance. Shelf, rack, and wall-mount configurations are available throughout the line for added flexibility, offering a solution for most custom installation scenarios. 

The AVR Series is Torus Power’s top-end toroidal isolation power conditioning and surge suppression line. Designed for large-scale custom installations like home theater, automation, and audio installations, the AVR2 Series features two (2) models: the AVR2 8 CE and AVR2 16 CE. Both provide enhanced Ethernet (IP) control and monitoring functionality in addition to automatic voltage regulation, automatic reboots, versatile scheduling options, and individually addressable outlet zones. These models come in 3U and 4U chassis sizes with 5 or 8 outlets and 8A or 16A Output Current Ratings respectively, with either 220V or 240V Input Voltages, all of which readily accommodates a wide range of residential and commercial audio-video applications—an attractive feature set considering the ever-merging worlds of commercial and residential integration.

The TOT Series, now offered in two models, the TOT Mini (3A and 7A) and the TOT Max (15A), expands the Torus Power lineup to include an affordable entry-level price point that also delivers highly effective power conditioning. Employing Plitron toroidal isolation transformers and NBT noise filtering technology, the TOT Series restores incoming power to its clean original state and protects valuable systems from voltage sags, brownouts and surges. TOT also provides very low source impedance to connected devices, enabling highcurrent delivery—up to the rated current limit—on an instantaneous basis; ensuring dynamic components are never starved for power. TOT Mini is suitable for providing Torus isolated power to components such as digital projectors, TVs, powered speakers, media or source players, processors, and network devices. TOT Max features a larger capacity toroidal transformer and can be used with most mid-level audio-video systems and power amplifiers.
