The PD-915RV-RN rackmount power distribution unit from Middle Atlantic Products features local and remote notification of surge-suppression status. Two front LED status indicators display the level of protection provided by the unit's two stage surge and spike suppression. Additionally, the PD-915RV-RN provides notification of surge suppression status to any third-party monitoring device. The unit is equipped with eight rear outlets and one front outlet. Clean ground surge suppressor design will not pass noise contamination to the ground. Three USB-style ports (two on the back panel, one on the front) accommodate Middle Atlantic's LT-GN gooseneck LED light for additional rack illumination.
The Monster Cable Pro Power 3600 comprises 12 outlets for AC surge protection, three pairs of protected coaxial connections, and one-in-two-out surge-protected phone connections. Also featured are a digital meter for simultaneous monitoring of voltage and current usage, three remote trigger controls to remotely turn on/off external components, and front and back XLR lamp connections. The Pro 3600 incorporates Monster Clean Power Stage 3 v.2.0 circuitry (three isolated filter sections that include two analog audio filters and two digital filters, plus two ultra-high-current audio filters to provide AC power line noise rejection and intercomponent isolation).
Panamax's M4320-Pro is a 20-amp device that features eight RS-232C or BlueBolt controllable/programmable outlets. The M4320 also includes protection circuitry for two pairs of coaxial jacks, one 10/100 Base-T Ethernet line, and one telephone line. The front panel features a volt/amp meter, outlet status and warning LEDs, two programmable reboot buttons, an additional outlet, and a circuit breaker/main power switch. BlueBolt IP system control and monitoring comes installed in the unit. The RS-232 communication card is not installed but is included.
The PS Audio AV Power Center AV-5000 is a web-addressable power conditioner featuring 10 individually switched outlets grouped into five isolated AC power zones with common-mode and differential-mode AC cleaning. The AV-5000 also features autoreboot, which allows any device to automatically reboot should it become disconnected. The system provides complete control via RS-232, IR, or the unit's internal webpage.
Raxxess Metalsmiths' PD-800 series power conditioners offer surge and spike protection, as well as EMI/RFI filtering for eight rear and one front outlets. A front-mounted 15-amp circuit breaker and a heavy-duty 12ft. AC cable are included. The PD-800L features pull-out lights with an on/off switch and dimmer control. The PD-800L and the PD-800 feature outlet placement arranged to accommodate wall wart power supplies.
