For more than 20 years, America's leading companies have trusted Tripp Lite's Isobar Premium surge and noise suppressors to protect sensitive computer, networking and telecom equipment.

Loaded with a generous combination of high quality components, near indestructible all-metal case and unique noise filtration system, the Isobar offers the highest level of protection attainable in a multi-outlet strip. Robust surge suppression circuits with sine-wave tracking offer extreme levels of protection against the heaviest surge conditions exceeding IEEE 587 category A & B specifications and reducing 6,000V test surges to harmless levels under 35 volts. Isobar's unique protection system combines large toroidal chokes, ferrite rod-core inductors, HF/VHF capacitors and multiple layers of metal oxide varistors into exclusive isolated filter banks that remove EMI/RFI interference, even noise generated by other pieces of connected equipment. ISOBAR8ULTRA offers 8 outlets arranged in four filter banks to prevent system crashes, reboots and performance problems common as noisy system peripherals are powered off and on. Surge suppression rated at 3840 joules/97,000 amps offers network-grade protection. Widely spaced NEMA 5-15 outlets accommodate up to 4 large transformer plugs without blocking outlets. Diagnostic LEDs confirm power availability, line fault and protection status. Includes 12 foot AC line cord with space-saving angled input plug, keyhole mounting tabs and a set of 4 child safety covers.

From the Manufacturer

Tripp Lite ISOBAR8ULTRA Surge Protector: Exclusive Isobar Technology for Premium Protection

The ISOBAR8ULTRA provides 3840 joules of surge protection for connected equipment. (More joules = more protection.) Tripp Lite's exclusive Isobar surge suppression technology, combined with a nearly indestructible metal case, stops even the strongest surges before they can damage or destroy sensitive equipment. The ISOBAR8ULTRA also features unique isolated filter banks that block disruptive EMI/RFI line noise interference and prevent mutual interference between connected components. These premium features make the ISOBAR8ULTRA ideal for a wide range of applications, from data centers to desktop computer systems.

The ISOBAR8ULTRA provides 8 AC outlets arranged in 4 isolated filter banks (2 per bank). Outlets are widely spaced to accommodate up to 4 large transformers without blocking remaining outlets. Diagnostic LEDs confirm power availability, line fault and surge protection status at a glance. The ISOBAR8ULTRA features a 12-ft. foot power cord with space-saving right-angle plug, keyhole mounting tabs and a set of 4 covers to safeguard unused outlets. The ISOBAR8ULTRA comes with $50,000 Ultimate Lifetime connected equipment insurance (USA/Canada only) and a lifetime manufacturer's product warranty.

Powerful Surge Protection and Performance Enhancement

More joules mean more protection. The ISOBAR8ULTRA's 3840-joule surge suppression rating, Isobar surge protection technology and rugged all-metal housing shield connected equipment from even the strongest surges. EMI/RFI line noise filtering helps components perform at their peak. Line noise filtering eliminates performance problems that can be caused by radio transmissions, fluorescent lighting and appliances, while promoting longer component life spans.

Exclusive Isolated Filter Banks

Devices connected to the same surge suppressor can interfere with one another's performance—for instance when household appliances (blenders, refrigerators, fans) degrades TV picture and sound quality. The Isobar is the only surge suppressor with internal barriers (called isolated filter banks) that prevent disruptive line noise from causing A/V distortion, computer lock-ups, data errors and similar problems. Isolated filter banks ensure that peripheral devices and appliances don't degrade the performance of computers and sensitive A/V components.

Built-In Diagnostic LEDs

Three diagnostic LEDs (LINE OK, GROUND OK & SURGE OK) show power and protection status at a glance.

Versatile Installation Options

The ISOBAR8ULTRA features a 12-ft. cord to reach distant outlets. A space-saving right-angle plug allows office furniture, cabinets, etc. to be placed flush against the wall. The ISOBAR8ULTRA's rugged all-metal case stands up to harsh environments such as warehouses, garages and factory floors. The case is equipped with keyhole mounting tabs to facilitate permanent installation on or under counters and worktables, on walls, etc. Included outlet covers (set of four) may be used to safeguard unused outlets.

Ultimate Peace of Mind

The ISOBAR8ULTRA comes with $50,000 Ultimate Lifetime Insurance coverage for connected equipment—guaranteed lifetime protection against damage due to surges, including direct lightning strikes (USA/Canada only). Ultimate Lifetime Insurance coverage begins the moment you purchase your Tripp Lite surge suppressor—no forms to fill out or send in. Additionally, all Tripp Lite surge suppressors are backed by a lifetime product warranty and a rapid-response, no-questions-asked replacement policy.

I don't normally write reviews but after experiencing a major power surge that blew out our electrical panel, I felt the performance of this product should be reported.

First and foremost, this product rocks! With as severe of a surge as we experienced I had nightmares of blown-out electronics throughout our home. The reality is that nothing connected with Tripp Lite surge protectors suffered any damage whatsoever! That is incredible!!! I cannot say the same for the condition of the Tripp Lite surge protectors. The surge protector did its job and gave its life protecting my equipment. Even better still, when I contacted Tripp Lite to report the damaged surge protector, their customer service was stellar; they took down all relevant information and then immediately shipped me replacement surge protectors. Can't beat that; a company that actually stands by their product and honors their warranty.

I am completely sold now on these Tripp Lite surge protectors. I have now ordered additional of their surge protectors to cover items that I didn't previously protect and also to have spares.

This item is a bargain at any price. Consider it like a purchase of insurance; since the manufacturer stands by their product this is a must have investment.

Tripp lite has a great warranty, we purchased one, got struck by lightening. It saved my computer equipment, but burnt the protector. Tripp lite replaced it free of charge. I've had others on other electronic equipment in the house that have not lasted or protected as well. I'll buy tripp lite after this for all my valuable equipment.

Purchased this Surge Protector for additional computer appliances, I own already 3 Tripp Lite Surge Protectors and they have proofed to be the perfect protection. I like about them that they are built in a robust metal housing, have a flat wall plug (so they fit perfectly behind furniture) and Tripp Lite gives you lifetime warranty/replacement - I went through it and their service is exceptional, read below if you want to know more.

I had a very nasty experience a month ago when the transformer for our apartment building blew up... there was a short spike in the power supply which roasted most large kitchen appliances and a few other things in my home. Luckily I had installed Tripp Lite Surge Protectors for my TV set as well as for all my computer peripherals - the Surge Protectors took the hit and protected all things behind them.

Now the best thing and why I would always go again with Tripp Lite; After the incident I called Tripp Lite to find out if I can reset the surge protectors, they told me at the phone that the spike must have been to much and that I need new ones. At that moment I already was thinking to go and shop, but they actually asked me for my address, the serial number of the surge protectors and hey 3 days later I had brand new replacements in the mail!!! That is the customer service we all love!

Size Name: 6 Outlet
Cannot recommended Tripp-Lite enough. I had this Isobar Ultra filled with computer equipment. An electrician's company fed 220 volts into two house circuits. The equipment plugged into the Tripplites were fine. The electronics plugged into a cheaper strip all fried. $3,000 worth of damage. If I had spent the money on the TrippLite I would still have my 36" HDTV, DVD, and VCR.
Tripp lite's side fuse was popped and would not reset. Internally it was fried, smelled like it melted and something rattled inside. Contacted TrippLite and, no questions asked, they sent me a replacement--no fees. I had the tripplite for at least five years. The LifeTime warranty is real, don't forget that. And this unit is all metal housing. Heavy, solid, with mounting screw holes on the back. THe cable is thick and solid. It will tell you if the plug is ungrounded. The plugs are isolated to eliminate EMI noise from propigating from one plug to the next.
My ultra has a modem/phone pass thru on one side. I don't see that mentioned here.

We have used these surge protectors for years. One took a lightning strike, apparently, and the inside of the case was burned to a cinder. The electronics package that was plugged into it was OK, however. Well worth the price.

The Isobar is a much better built alternative to the run-of-the-mill powerstips available at most electronics stores. Not only is it a very good surge protector, but it will also help filter and isolate your components which can sometimes help performance.

If you've ever noticed a "pop" through your speakers when an appliance in your house turns on, or if you sometimes get a humming noise, the Isobar will most likely solve that for you. It is a much better solution to a ground loop than using a cheater plug (which is not always safe). Plus the line fault indicator might point out a problem you never knew you had in your wiring.

Can't beat it for the price, and can't beat it for much more than the price. A great pickup for the home or office.

Size Name: 2 Outlet Verified Purchase
In an attempt to keep the bedroom nice and cool, we just installed a window AC unit, you know the cheap bargain basement kind that wreck havoc on your AC quality. Having a plasma TV on the same circuit, which is a bit finicky in regards to electric quality, this seemed to be a sound investment. Plus it would act as a surge protector for the air conditioner.

I didn't want a bulky strip, but I knew I needed solid EMI/RFI filtering, so this was a natural fit. The unit is as big and ugly as you could imagine, and unlike what I would have expected, it connects to one wall (not both) outlet and hangs below that one (leaving the other free, but unfiltered). A bracket and screws holds it in place (and would be needed for all but the tightest new sockets). Other than that, setup is a breeze. A few LEDs keep you in the loop as far as what's going on.

I immediately noticed a crisper picture and less jitter when the compressor kicks in.
