    8 battery-powered, surge-protected outlets

    Including 4 outlets for your critical-load equipment enable temporary uninterrupted operation of your connected home theater system components during a power failure.

    10' cord

    Permits flexible placement options. The captive, heavy-duty, shielded AC power cord offers a secure connection.

    LiFT (Linear Filtering Technology) noise filtration

    AVM (Automatic Voltage Monitoring)

    Monitors for unsafe voltage conditions, such as momentary spikes or prolonged over- or under-voltages.

    Protect or Disconnect feature

    Outlet banks 1, 2, 3 and 4 indicators

    Illuminate in blue when an outlet bank is switched on. LED line fault indicator illuminates in red to indicate a wiring problem, such as a bad or missing ground or reversed wiring, so you stay notified.
