Many types of power disturbances can affect your home theater experience. Power surges and AC power-line “noise” are common household occurrences that can damage your expensive audio video equipment and reduce the quality of your sound and picture. Also, as the population grows and the demand for power increases, power brownouts and blackouts are becoming more common. These sudden power losses can cause the loss of system settings and digital recordings. More importantly, sudden power loss leads to improper equipment shutdown, which ultimately results in damage to your valuable equipment.
Phase 4 PureFilter Technology isolates and eliminates AC line “noise”
Uninterruptible Power Supply provides backup power for DVRs, Media Center PCs, or any device for which you want to preserve system settings
Automatic Voltage Regulation maintains constant voltage by increasing low voltage and decreasing high voltage without the aid of the battery
Unique IR Blaster allows projectors or projection TVs to cool their lamps and prevent damage from excessive heat before shutting down
SmartStage Shutdown Technology shuts down your equipment in stages, prolonging battery life and reserving power for the most critical devices
$500,000 Connected Equipment Warranty
Hot-swappable replaceable battery
