|Technology Today |
Advancements in technology have brought faster, higher definition products that are capable of processing large amounts of data but are also quite sensitive to the components that drive them. Too little power and these devices will not function at an optimum level, too much power and these devices can be damaged beyond repair.
| ||The Ups and Downs of Power |
AC Power by nature is ever-changing, appliances turning on and off in your home (as well as your neighbor's home) causes voltage to surge and spike, this is sometimes noticeable in the form of lights dimming. This causes a state of flux for the power running your delicate electronic devices which can have a negative effect on the functionality of those devices. Other conditions such as power outages and lightning strikes only increase this fluctuation.
When power returns after an outage it does not roll in gently like a ripple on a lake, it surges and spikes like a wave on an ocean during a hurricane. It is these surges that damage the delicate components in electronic devices making them unusable. Even under normal power operation, surges and spikes can damage electronic devices.
Proper connection to an advance surge protector that offers integrated system protection can help minimize the risk of permanent damage....
|Protection You Can Rely On |
Unlike standard surge protectors, the Monster PowerCenter HTS1600 protection provides multiple layers of defense against harmful surges and spikes with patented Tri-Mode and exclusive T2 protection. The Microprocessor controlled T2 circuitry continuously minotors power conditions to not only block out surges and spikes, but also disconnects the PowerCenter and all of the connected devices. After power is disconnected, T2 circuitry continues to monitor power conditions and automatically reconnects the power once a safe condition is reached.
Protection is only part of the equation; Monster's Tri-Mode circuitry includes an audible alarm and an LED display that shows the current incoming power line voltage. No more guess work on troubleshooting high or low voltage conditions like spikes or brownouts.
| ||Keeping it Clean |
Fluctuations in power are bad enough for proper electronic devices functionality; add the noise pollution in power lines created by the appliances in your home and outside interference, and protection is only the beginning of the requirement.
Electrical power tools, refrigerators, air conditioners, radio transmitters, cell phones- all generate electromagnetic interference and radio frequency noise which pollutes AC power.
The pollution in the power line has an adverse effect on the performance of electronic devices, preventing them from performing at at an optimum level. Video will not be as crisp and jittery; audio will sound unclear and accurate to the point of even having noticeable levels of buzzes and noise. Monster's Clean Power circuitry filters out power pollution by utilizing special filters to dramatically reduce electronic noise on your AC power line. You'll see a more vivid picture and hear more natural sound with increased dynamic range and less noise giving back the performance you never knew you lost...
Making Life Easier
In addition to protecting your valuable electronics, Monster PowerCenter provides convenience for connecting and placement generic surge protectors cannot. The FlatProfile plug allows for furniture to be flush with your walls, and the color-coded labeled outlets let you know just what is connected, no more unplugging the wrong device. All this combines with a generous 8-foot powered cord, ensuring that no wall outlet is out of reach...
Peace of Mind
With Monster PowerCenter HTS1600 you can rest easy knowing that if something should go wrong, your connected equipment is protected by Monsters Connected Equipment Warranty. That is something you cannot find on a generic power strip...
