Power management solution provider Panamax has released three new products in its MAX In-Wall series that are optimized for remotely located display devices. The In-Wall Powerkit-Pro, Power-Pro and Dual Signal Bay offer solutions for noise filtration, protection and connecting signal lines.
The Powerkit-Pro is a noise-free, code-compliant extension of Panamax filtration and protection to remotely located devices that’s an alternative to running an unsightly extension cord from the component rack to the video output, the company says. The Powerkit-Pro accommodates optional signal line modules for a professional finish with additional EMI/RFI noise filtration built into the outlet receptacles.
The 15-amp Power-Pro offers two AC outlets with Level 1 EMI/RFI noise filtration for clear, detailed images and sound, while thermal fusing, overvoltage protection and catastrophic surge circuitry protect your home theater components from power surges and voltage transients, according to Panamax.
The MAX In-Wall Dual Signal Bay is convenient for connecting signal lines from the source device to the display device when running cables within walls. It accommodates two blank module inserts with pass-through plugs or two In-Wall signal protection modules and fits into many two-gang outlet brackets. The unit features a full metal housing and enlarged faceplate, as well as a 14-AWG solid-wire connection for bonding/grounding to In-Wall AC units.
The Powerkit-Pro will be available at an SRP of $299.95, the Power-Pro at $99.95, and the Dual Signal Bay at $29.95. Go to www.panamax.com for more information.
