ADC INTROS CIRCUIT BREAKER PLATFORM FOR POWERED NETWORKS.

ADC (Nasdaq:ADCT, www.adc.com), a leading global supplier of fiber optics, network equipment, software and integration services for broadband, multiservice networks, recently introduced the PowerWorx Select Series Circuit Breaker Platform. The new offering extends ADC's line of products designed for optimal power distribution and protection in multimedia broadband networks. The new platform marks the first in a series of circuit breaker products offered by ADC.

"As networks and the variety of powered devices grow, so does the need for reliable power distribution and protection," said David Schomaker, senior product manager for ADC's Connectivity Business Unit. "Service providers have specific requirements for their networks. Some prefer the convenience and security of circuit breakers rather than fuses. ADC is committed to providing our customers with a complete suite of power distribution and protection products to meet the increased powering demands of their broadband, multi-service networks."

Offering the industry's highest density, the PowerWorx Select Series circuit breaker platform supports up to 16 field-replaceable circuit breakers in a single rack unit. Its hydraulic magnetic circuit breakers provide precise and reliable powering control, can be quickly reset to restore power, and feature customized trip points (in amperes) and time delays (in seconds). For mixed-amperage applications, panels can be configured-to-order to support varying amperages from a common platform. The platform accepts input power up to 100 Amps per bus and supports up to 20 Amps output power per breaker position.

The PowerWorx Select Series circuit breaker platform is NEBS Level 3 independently tested and certified. It features a patent-pending design that enables full Telcordia GR-63-CORE compliance.
