More than 1,500 ProPower RPD power distro racks are in service across North America and Teri Productions of Knoxville, Tennessee owns a fair share of them. Recently, the venerable, full-service rental and staging company has been building their inventory to accommodate new business with a variety of tours and events, ranging from Lil Wayne to motivational guru Tony Robbins.
“Using the latest technology, we’ve converted our lighting designs to eliminate dimmer racks,” says Teri Productions’ Jay Coatney. “Running entirely on ProPower power distros, these lighting systems are a green solution, since much less power is needed. For example, a system that previously required six 400-amp services can now be powered with two 200-amp services. Even with this added efficiency, we sometimes use 12 ProPower RPD racks in large arenas.”
Coatney adds, “There are so many things we like about ProPower racks, including their reliability, versatility, truck-pack size, ease of ordering, and options such as the digital meter display which allows us to easily meter everything before powering up. The fit and finish are unsurpassed; we don’t have to worry about rolling out in front of corporate clients (and believe me, they watch). These handsome racks project the image we want for our company.”
“The ProPower brand continues to enjoy increasing popularity with entertainment professionals worldwide,” says TMB Sales Manager, Stephanie Kilburg. “Continuously enhanced and improved to maintain its quality advantage, ProPower RPD remains the most reliable, versatile power distro out there. We look forward to continuing our long-standing and growing relationship with Teri Productions.”
For the North American market, custom-configurable ProPower RPD power distribution features a comprehensive range of distro panels, offering virtually every type of connector, voltage range, or special purpose device used in the entertainment production and staging industries. Over 150 panels are all readily available, with more being added regularly. Panels and their positioning in the rack are selected by the customer and each RPD system is built exactly as specified. In addition to power distribution panels, an entire family of systems has been engineered using ProPlex Data Distribution unified signal management systems. The most recent addition to the wide range of ProPower RPD choices is a 1U panel with eight USB outputs for charging mobile devices and powering USB LED goosenecks (included). ProPower RPD rack systems are normally shipped within ten business days from order, fully cULus Listed, completely ready to use, housed in high-quality ATA flight cases. European ProPower CE systems offer all the features and benefits of their American cousins to professional users in 220/240 volt markets
