ADJ is pleased to announce the immediate availability of its new POW-R BAR RACK USB, a power management solution designed to eliminate messy wires and extension cords. Perfect for controlling the power supply to lighting and audio equipment, the compact unit is ideal for use in installations as well as at front of house and monitor mixing positions, lighting desks and in mobile entertainers’ setups.

POW-R BAR RACK USB Front photoBuilding on the heritage of ADJ’s popular PC-100A, a power switching unit that has been on the market for over 25 years, the new POW-R BAR RACK USB retains the original tried and tested design but with the addition of dedicated Always On sockets as well as USB charging ports. The new unit expands the ADJ POW-R BAR range which also includes the touring grade POW-R BAR65 utility power block and POW-R BAR LINK linkable power block.

POW-R BAR RACK USB Rear photoThe new POW-R BAR RACK USB features eight 3-prong 120V Edison sockets on its rear panel which correspond to eight rocker switches on the front. In addition, there are two further 3-prong Edison sockets, one located on the front panel and one on the back, which are always on when the unit is receiving power. The front panel also features two USB ports – ideal for charging phones, tablets and other portable devices or for powering USB accessories such as gooseneck lights or portable fans – as well as a reset switch for the internal circuit breaker.

Each rocker switch features a green LED to make it easy to see which outlets are currently active, even in dark working conditions, and the unit also has a red LED to indicate that it is connected to a power supply. A 4.5-foot power cord is wired to the rear panel and the device offers a maximum total load of 15A (1800W) spread across its ten outlet sockets.

Despite its heavy-duty metal construction, it weighs just 4.2 lbs. / 1.9 Kg. making it easily portable and meaning that it won’t add unnecessary weight to already heavy equipment racks.

“The original PC-100A has been a consistent best seller for ADJ over the past quarter century and the new POW-R BAR RACK USB builds on its winning design with the addition of two useful new features,” comments ADJ USA’s National Sales Manager, Alfred Gonzales. “Ideal for use in permanent installations at all kinds of venues ranging from churches to nightclubs as well as for temporary event production and touring shows, this compact 1U device provides a useful power management solution for all kinds of lighting and sound equipment. In addition to eight separately switchable power sockets, it offers two useful ‘hot’ sockets – ideal for the connection of equipment that shouldn’t be powered off – as well as two USB outlets for charging of phones and tablets.”
