AC Power Products
ETA UNINTERRUPTIBLE POWER MANAGER
ETA Systems introduces the Uninterruptible Power Manager (UPM). Each UPM completely conditions AC power. When AC power is lost, a low-distortion sine wave inverter provides up to six minutes of runtime. Digital recording and editing systems cannot function when power goes out and work may be lost. ETA’s UPM family is designed to prevent such an occurrence. Five North American and five more international models are available. An optional management software package is available. Price: $600 to $1,500. NAMM booth: #6928.
ETA POWER CONDITIONERS
ETA Systems introduces a family of high-performance power conditioners. Each conditioner includes an isolation transformer, surge diverter and noise filter. The digital circuitry at the heart of many audio systems requires ultra-pure electrical power. These power conditioners surpass simple filters and surge protectors, and are perfect for use with digital or microprocessor-based mixers, workstations and peripherals. Fifteen models are available for North American applications and nine more models are intended for international use. Price: $126 to $1,831. NAMM booth: #6928.
FURMAN SOUND IT-20 II
The IT-20 II balanced isolation transformer can supply 20 amps of balanced AC power with more than 80 dB of common-mode noise reduction from a frequency range of 20 Hz to 20k Hz, ensuring an ultra-low noise floor that preserves the low-level signals that define resolution and depth in high-end audio and video. It also features a laboratory-grade digital voltmeter and Furman’s SMP+ technology, which filters transverse noise and protects equipment from power problems. Price: $1,799. NAMM booth: #6874.
MONSTER PRO 5100 POWERCENTER
The Signature Series™ Pro 5100 PowerCenter features Monster Clean Power™ Stage 4 Version 2.1 circuitry filter to reduce electronic noise, T2™ automatic disconnect/reconnect protection circuitry, an audible alarm and auto-disconnect, 12 surge-protected AC outlets and a 6,814-Joule rating for a high level of surge absorption. Front and rear digital meters display both voltage and amperage. Retail: $1,299.95. NAMM booth: #4550.
SmartRack uses mPATHX patent-pending technology to reduce heat, weight and noise, delivers power and data at peak efficiency and eliminates the need for AC/DC wall warts. Its USB and graphical user interface let users control, program, monitor and deliver the different voltages required by various M.I. and pro-audio devices in and outside the rack. MSRP range: $250 to $300, which includes the SmartRack, DC wall-wart replacement cables with DC barrel adapter tips and applications software. NAMM booth: #1091.
The SX1115-RT has remote-control capability for use in power distribution systems with a sequential controller such as the SurgeX SEQ. Featuring advanced Impedance Tolerant® EMI/RFI filtering circuitry, SurgeX ICE® Inrush Current Elimination technology and COUVS™ catastrophic over/under-voltage shutdown, the SX1115-RT offers eight standard grounded AC receptacles and a front panel courtesy outlet. Six of eight main receptacles are switched; two are always on. Price: $579.
