APC Adds Extra Surge Protection
A slew of new products promise to keep your home theater goodies safe.
APC’s new A/V surge products promise protection—with a $150,000 guarantee.

In case you hadn’t noticed, A/V equipment isn’t cheap. You need insurance for your car, why wouldn’t you put the same on your home theater?

Before you start dialing your agent, take a peek at APC’s new additions to the Audio-Video Surge Protector product family. Promising up to $150,000 guaranteed protection, they could be all the insurance you need.

The four new models include:

  • The P4V and P6V wall-tap units, which cut down on cord clutter.
  • The P4V is a wall-tap unit with two surge-protected outlets on each side.
  • The P6V is another wall-tap unit, with six illuminated outlets, for safe connections in dark spaces.
  • The P8V has eight outlets packed into a slim design for back-of-the-entertainment-center use.
  • The P8VNTG promises power savings, with “master/controlled” outlets that can automatically cut power to unused equipment.

Designed for everything from flat panels to surround sound systems, each unit features SmartShedding technology, which allows the product’s master outlet to shut down when your computer is off or in sleep mode. All of APC’s surge protectors feature AC and video line protection, with UL1449 2nd Edition standards.

All of the new models will be available in late 2008 for $40 to $90 each.
