They just recently introduced a PRGF model of their PowerRack G Series — a rackmount chassis created exclusively for the Power Mac G4 with 466, 533, 667, and 733 MHz processors — now the folks at
have rolled out the RackIlluminator, a single or dual light source for an equipment rack.
It’s an adjustable 12.5-inch gooseneck lamp that lets you direct light where you want it when you want it, according to Michael Rowland of Marathon, which designs and manufactures rackmount solutions for the Mac. With the RackIlluminator, your rack carries its own light source, built in and ready to shine, he added. It’s offered in single or dual lamp models.
“The RackIlluminator is essential to my on-stage set-up,” said Tom Yarboro, a professional musician, “Instead of fumbling around in the dark for equipment knobs, I have split-second access to lighting, a life-saver for high pressure performances.”
The RackIlluminator — which is made of metal with a black finish and takes up one unit (1.75 inches) of rack space — has an off/on switch with dimmer, an adjustable hood that functions as a heat sink so users won’t burn their fingers when adjusting the light direction, a security clip for tucking the neck away when not in use, and a 20VAC/12VDC adapter with six-inch power cord. It comes with a five-watt halogen bulb.
The RackIlluminator single model has a retail price of US$50. The RackIlluminator dual model retails for $60.
