The bigger the product, the more likely you’ll want to protect it. Of course, that sentiment goes for size as well as price tag. SurgeX wants to cover you either way, with its new XN240 surge protector.
Claiming to be the only 240-volt NEMA surge elimination product on the market, the XN240 offers a nice solution for large projectors, screens and other high-power products, as well as panels.
Also, just because it can handle those larger items, that doesn’t mean the XN240 will soak up your precious space. Instead, it’s hardwired as a subpanel at the service entrance or the equipment room.
SurgeX says that the XN240 meets NEC code requirements and includes SurgeX A-1-1 Certified Advanced Series Mode technology, which boasts better audio and video performance. It features a dedicated 240-volt/20-amp circuit and two surge suppression modules.
SurgeX is shipping the XN240 now for $999 (MSRP).
