New Protective Power Products Using a 50 Amp Power Source - SS2CB520 and SS2CBF520

Posted by Stephanie Junek on

AC WORKS® has brought you two new protective power adapters.  The power source for these adapters is a 50 Amp outlet.  The concern about this by many of our customers is that the outlet will carry too much power to their equipment causing it to burn out.  The solution we came up with is the addition of the 20 Amp breaker.  The breaker helps to reduce people's concerns about a power overload to their equipment by only allowing the necessary 20 Amps of power through the adapter.    We have two adapters to offer our customers.  The SS2CB520, which is...

Turning your High-Power Home Outlets into Multiple Regular Home Outlets

This week Chris talked a little bit further on the topic of Power Distribution Units (PDU) in the AC WORKS® Wisdom video, which I have shared here.  People can use PDUs for all sorts of different things. We can use a couple of different AC WORKS® brand adapters to get power from a higher-powered outlet, such as a dryer outlet or range outlet.
