RFI and EMI Filtering: AC power from your power company can become noisy on its way to your home and ultimately to your equipment. Static electricity, even certain appliances in your home can introduce noise into your home’s electricity. All Protek models offer a minimum of 40db (Up to 70db on certain models) of noise reduction providing your sensitive electronics with cleaner power.

Surge Protection: Power surges can originate both inside and outside the home. If your home loses power, or the power company performs a grid switch a surge of power can enter your home. When higher-powered devices, such as an air conditioner, hairdryer, or electric oven are turned on and off can also cause a spike of voltage throughout your home’s electrical system. All Protek models offer surge protection (Up to 6480 Joules of surge protection) with a reaction time of 1 nanosecond.

Voltage / Current Display: The front panel of the PR-71S, PR-81B, and PR-91W displays the voltage coming from your home’s AC outlet. The PR-81B and PR-91W also display the current draw of your connected devices.

ELAC Protek App: Simply connect the PR-91W, PB-62W, or PB-12W to your home Wi-Fi network and download our free ELAC Protek app. The Protek app allows for setting a countdown timer, scheduling, and controlling the power on groups of the surge protectors’ outlets. You can even control the surge protector from outside of the house. The PR-81B features Bluetooth Low Energy for local app control without the need for Wi-Fi.
