SurgeX Intros Defender Series Power Protection

AMETEK Electronic Systems Protection (ESP) today announces the new SurgeX Defender Series line of power protection products. Designed specifically to safeguard everyday applications, the Defender Series provides cost-effective, comprehensive power protection and conditioning to increase up-time and ensure connected equipment functions properly.

Even the smaller, cost-conscious applications deserve proper power protection as a fundamental element of an AV system’s foundation. The new Defender Series line includes the following products:

Designed with patented Multi-Stage surge suppression technology, the Defender Series line protects AV equipment from electrical transients that can cause harmful system disruptions. The robust three-stage protection ensures equipment is safeguarded from the harmful effects of surge energy and the advanced filtration of the Defender Series virtually eliminates normal and common mode electrical noise interference that can cause frequent reboots and downtime.

Designed for the protection of standalone devices such as projecters, displays, POS machines or digital signage applications, the 1-outlet SX-DS-151 model is small enough to be deployed in environments where space is a consideration but power protection is a must. The 8-outlet SX-DX-158 and SX-DS-208 models are rack mountable and ideal solutions to provide comprehensive power protection and conditioning at the rack level in education, security, or house of worship installation environments where budgets are limited, carefully reviewed and proper power protection often overlooked.

Both the SX-DS-158 model and SX-DS-208 model are rackmount, 1U and 8.5” deep making them more compact and shallow than some current SurgeX offerings. Additionally, the SX-DS-151 is a single outlet 15A model designed to plug directly into a receptacle. The SX-DS-158 and SX-DS-208 models will be shipping Q3 of 2018 and the SX-DS-151 model is shipping now.

Here are all the specs.
