Anord Critical Power, Inc. (ACPI) has announced that it has been recognized in The Channel Company's annual CRN Data Center 100 list's - 20 Infrastructure Providers. The company achieved the distinction for expanding channel partners' mission-critical facility business with its innovative AMS 4b Type 7 switchgear.

The companies included in CRN's Data Center 100 list are selected based on a variety of criteria, including the types of technology and services they make available to partners as well as their overall impact on the market and the channel. Anord's UL 891 listed, and also constructed in accordance with IEC 61439-2 form 4b type 7 switchgear impressed judges with its fully compartmentalized solution that significantly improves safety during maintenance procedures, as well as its superior fault resilience in mission-critical applications. The industry-proven switchgear offering was quickly embraced for channel partners and helped the company expand its North American business by 75 percent in 2015.

Continuing its innovate offerings to the channel, Anord recently unveiled the Anord Modular Product (AMP) Power Distribution Unit (PDU) and (AMP) Remote Power Panel (RPP). The new offering is the most advanced power distribution solution available that enables mission-critical facilities to improve safety, performance, management and monitoring.

"Our AMS Form B Type 7 switchgear has proven to be a valued addition for channel partners' mission-critical facilities sales," said Rob Sweaney, vice president of operations and general manager, Anord Critical Power. "Being recognized by CRN for a second year is a great honor and we look forward to proving our value to resellers once again, with our new AMP PDU."
