December 17, 2013 – The EMerge Alliance has expanded the EMerge Alliance Registered product program to include the first products supporting the EMerge Alliance Data/Telecom Center Standard.

The standard boasts an integrated, open platform for power, infrastructure, peripheral device and control applications to facilitate the hybrid use of AC and DC power within data centres and telecommunications central offices. By requiring fewer components and power conversions than their AC counterparts, DC power systems in data centres suffer fewer failures and require less space, energy and maintenance to operate, says the Alliance. The first series of registered products include:

• Anderson Power Products – Saf-D-Grid DC power connectors
• Emerson Network Power-Energy Systems – NetSure 4015 30kW 400V DC power systems
• GVA Lighting – Highlighter HL-DL modular LED lighting systems
• Nextek Power Systems – fluorescent ballasts, T8 32W 6-lamp
• Universal Electric-Starline DC Solutions – Starline track busway systems
