Panamax Ships MR Series

Panamax today announced that it is now shipping MR4000, the first product in its new “MR series” of entry-level power management products specifically aimed at the home market. The MR4000 features something that Panamax calls Protect or Disconnect and Automatic Voltage Monitoring (AVM) circuitry, as well as Level 2 noise filtration.

The MR4000 features eight surge-protected outlets — seven rear panel plus a front-panel outlet — in addition to coaxial and LAN pass-through protection ports. Panamax says the MR4000’s Level 2 Noise Filtration eliminates common symptoms of contaminated power, including loss of detail, pops, hisses, hums and visual artifacts. For complete power protection, AVM circuitry disconnects the power in unsafe conditions and automatically reconnects it when safe power returns. The unit’s 1-RU design can go on a shelf, in a cabinet or in a rack (rack-mount kit sold separately). It lists for $199.

Here are all the details.
