PETALUMA, CA — February 11, 2005 — Recognizing the need to protect sensitive electronic systems from electrical surges transmitted through remote lines, Panamax, the industry-leading manufacturer of power conditioning and protection products, is unveiling eight new signal line protection modules. These new modules are designed to work with and complement the PM8-EX, M4-EX, M8-EX and M8-Pro product lines. The new signal line protection modules are also compatible with legacy towerMAX products. They will be available in April of 2005.
“Many of today’s complex installations have a variety of signal lines going to and coming from remote locations. If left unprotected, the head-end system is open to damage from surges coming in on these lines,” said Don King, director of product marketing at Panamax. “Our new family of add-on modules gives the installer the ability to customize the protection scheme and cover signal lines not protected by the primary surge protector or power conditioner.”
The new Panamax signal line protection modules cover a wide spectrum of applications including analog and digital telephone lines, network lines, CATV and satellite TV lines, as well as outdoor speakers, keypads and control lines. Every protection circuit is “application specific” and has been designed for a particular type of equipment or use. And, as in the case of all Panamax products, each module is thoroughly tested for its protection capabilities relative to its intended use.
Here’s a complete list of all eight new Panamax protection modules:
