Atlanta -- SurgeX is at CEDIA Expo to introduce a new line of power conditioning products with built-in surge elimination.

The new Eliminator Series line, the company's first for the residential market, is said to be only power protection line on the market that eliminates electrical transients that can degrade A/V system performance.

Engineered with SurgeX's proprietary Advanced Series Mode surge elimination technology, the Eliminator Series features five rack-mount products that provide surge elimination, noise reduction and component sequencing.

The Advanced Series Mode Technology is completely non-sacrificial and eliminates surge energy without producing side effects such as ground contamination or common-mode disturbances, SurgeX said. It is also said to be the first A/V surge elimination technology to be certified A-1-1 by Underwriters Laboratories.

Advanced models feature a program interface that enables users to adjust remote power on/off based on shutdown thresholds, set sequencing parameters, and adjust and manage custom power settings. Installers can also utilize remote turn on for controlling multi-rack applications. Additionally, the Eliminator Series includes an uninterruptable power supply solution to ensure A/V systems stay online.

At the top of the line, the XU115 includes both common and normal mode Impedance Tolerant EMI/RFI noise filtering, and provides a browser-based interface to manage power settings, diagnostics and schedule shutdowns and restarts. Automatic voltage regulation provides a stable AC source during less than optimal power conditions without the constant use of internal batteries, increasing battery life.

Also new, the XN120 is a protection solution for multi-circuit residential A/V systems where space is at a premium. This compact 120-volt/80-amp unit provides fail-safe protection required for multiple circuits and is hard-wired as a subpanel at the service panel or the equipment room, eliminating the need for individual AC conditioners and thus freeing up rack space.

SurgeX said that in a typical installation, the XN120's 20-amp circuit will protect an average of 8 flat panels TVs, eliminating the need for individual AC line conditioners in every room.

For standalone flat panel installations, the X2 is designed to mount on the back of a TV or projector and is rated for in-wall/in-ceiling use.

All SurgeX products are manufactured in the company's Zebulon, North Carolina facility and the company offers an 11-year warranty on all products.

SurgeX is in booth #4146 at the CEDIA Expo.
