You know that 60-inch plasma screen hanging from the wall is sucking up a lot of power. That LCD flat-panel’s doing it a little more efficiently. And that projector hanging from you’re ceiling’s pretty hungry for juice too.
You want to make sure it’s clean and pure power, and you also want to make sure that an overload won’t fry your screen or projector circuitry. Chief Manufacturing is trying to make the solution as easy as possible for you, putting the power conditioning and protection right where the flat-panel or projector mount is.
The company has released its power-infused mounts and accessories line, headed by the PAC521P In-Wall Box for flat panel TV wall mounts. It gets rid of the necessity for an outlet while providing AC cleaning for optimum equipment performance.
Chief also has the power conditioner as a separate SKU, the PX2W Power Outlet Conditioner, which can be ordered separately to be used with other mounting products accessories.
There are also Chief’s Ceiling Kits with power conditioning, the CMS440P Suspended Ceiling Kit and the CMS445P Suspended Ceiling Tile Replacement Kit.
Convenience, conditioning and surge and spike protection, and you don’t have to worry about any long cable run to an outlet or power strip.
