Zonit Structured Solutions Gains Patent for Its New Micro Automatic Transfer Switch for Data Centers

USPTO Grants Zonit Patent, Additional Foreign Filings Are in Process

BOULDER, CO--(Marketwire - Sep 6, 2011) - Zonit Structured Solutions (, a provider of "to" and "at-the-rack" products for data centers in power management and rack management, today announced that its new Micro Automatic Transfer Switch (µATS™) -- a micro automatic power transfer switch for data centers, network-telecom closets, and medical equipment -- has received approval for its patent from the United States Patent & Trademark office. The Zonit Micro Automatic Transfer Switch is available in 120-volt and 208-240-volt models.

The Zonit µATS™ takes no rack space, and provides redundant "A-B" power to single-power-supply devices such as servers and routers. It also facilitates fast, easy "hot moves" of equipment -- in the rack, from rack to rack, or from rack to off-site. This device also is ideal for providing redundant power for devices used in network and telecom closets.

The Zonit µATS™ plugs directly into the back of single-power-supply devices (such as servers, routers, and switches). It features two power cords and intelligent circuitry that monitors the power quality of the primary power source. If the primary "A-source" power quality becomes unacceptable, the Zonit µATS™ automatically switches over and draws power from the back-up "B-source," thus keeping the device to which it's connected up and running.

"Receiving this patent is a significant milestone for Zonit, and it will ensure that Zonit has the only solution of this type, i.e. an ultra-small-form-factor automatic power transfer switch that takes no rack space," commented Zonit Chairman & Founder Bill Pachoud. "This type of device and the functions it provides are in high demand, and will demonstrate Zonit's ability to bring new technologies to market that are unique, and which will fill needs that currently have been unmet."

The Zonit µATS™ is available through multiple Zonit channel partners. To purchase the product, contact Zonit Vice President of Sales & Marketing Ric Lukasiewicz at 720.266.0056.

"The Zonit Micro ATS enables certain types of power distribution topologies that haven't been used to this point, but which are sorely needed by data center managers and network-telecom closet managers seeking a way to provide redundant power to mission-critical devices that only have one power supply," said Mr. Lukasiewicz.
