October 01, 2002 by Jeff Shepard

NEWMAR Power (Newport Beach, CA) announced that its rack-mount distribution panels have undergone rigorous analysis by Underwriters Laboratories (UL) and were recently awarded both UL 1801 and CSA C22.2 telecommunications equipment listings. The listings are now frequently required in equipment specified for carriers, municipalities, utilities and in co-located wireless equipment applications.

Two models, the DST-20A and DST-10, earned the certification. Both adapt to 19in or 23in racks; occupy 2 RU; and employ front-access, plug-in, circuit breakers. The DST-20A, with a 20-breaker capacity and dual-bus configuration, adapts for A/B power feeds and simultaneous 48V/24V voltages common to co-location facilities. It is rated at 900A. The DST-10 has a single-bus, 10-breaker capacity and is rated at 450A.
