Tripp Lite is introducing a line of products that includes surge suppressors, UPS systems and cables designed specifically for home/business theater applications. The new products are manufactured for use with every component — including high-definition TVs, VCRs, DVD recorders, personal video recorders, satellite and A/V receivers, and DVD/CD players.
Five new surge suppressors are available from the company. These are the HTPOWERBAR10, HT10DBS, HT1010SAT3, HT706TSAT and the HT706TV. All feature the highest joule ratings compared with other surge suppressors in their class. Premium features on select models include up to 5700 joules, up to $500,000 lifetime insurance, up to 10 outlets, up to 8 feet of cord and color-coordinated outlet/plug labels. Suggested retails for home/business surge suppressors range from $35.99 to $299.99. The company's signature line of Isobar's ranges from $48 to $134.95 (non-rack mount).
The UPS system HT1500UPS provides up to three hours of battery backup support during power incidents. Premium features include a stylish, low-profile housing, eight outlets, 6 feet of cord, outlet/plug labels and $100,000 in lifetime insurance. Suggested retail for the home/business UPS system is $169.99.
Tripp Lite also is offering a new connectivity product line that includes RGB coax, S-video, DVI video, high resolution audio, digital-optical audio, subwoofer, FireWire, USB 2.0 cables and more. The new cables provide all components with superior audio/video connection solutions, said the company, with premium shielding and gold connectors on most models. Audio, video, FireWire and USB 2.0 cables range from $14.99 to $69.99.
