I am building a 2ru slim depth case to house a POE switch, power, and a 2x2 dante node. I can install a furman type rack power in it, but reaching through the case to get to the plugs would be difficult and not very tidy either. What is the easiest way to have an AC passthrough that puts outlets on a 1ru panel?

I guess the other option is to use powercon outlets, but then I have to make sure to have powercon to edison stuff anytime I use this rack. It kinda defeats the purpose of having convenient power and network in a box at FOH.

I've used these often for this purpose. They're cheap. No filtering, just a power strip.

And also there's no non-UL listed homemade 120v AC wiring floating around inside your rack and drawing possible inspector attention!

I have one of these also and it is very handy. I also have a Cyberpower version too with as many outlets on the outside as on the inside.

Lol.

I was thinking the same, but I wouldn't shirk a back box if it was available.
