The SurgeX line of surge protectors

SurgeX has re-engineered its one-rack-space (1U) surge protectors and power conditioners to feature new Advanced Series Mode surge suppression and proprietary power-conditioning technologies such as Impedance Tolerant EMI/RFI filtering, SurgeX ICE inrush current elimination, and COUVS catastrophic over/under-voltage shutdown.

Advanced Series Mode technology is the latest generation of SurgeX’s proven Series Mode circuitry, which uses an inductor as the first and primary surge-suppression component to intercept and contain destructive surge energy. There has never been a failure of Series Mode protected equipment. Unlike other approaches, Advanced Series Mode technology does not rely on metal-oxide varistors (MOVs) as a sacrificial component. In addition, it creates no ground-wire contamination or common-mode surges and has zero let-through voltage.

SurgeX 1U products provide guaranteed Advanced Series Mode surge protection and power conditioning for audio, video and computer equipment. There are five 1U models: the SX1115, SX1115-RL, SX1115-RT, SX 1120-RT and SX1215, with features such as remote turn-on, front-panel lighting, or compatibility with 240-volt systems.

All SurgeX 1U models incorporate Advanced Series Mode and Impedance Tolerant EMI/RFI filtering. RL and RT models also feature SurgeX ICE inrush current elimination and COUVS catastrophic over/under-voltage shutdown.

SX1115 Series surge suppressors are 15-amp load-capable. The SX1120-RT accepts 20-amp loads, and the SX1215 is for 240-volt applications. All models have eight grounded AC receptacles on the rear panel, with six switched and two always on. Both R and RT models also provide a front-panel courtesy outlet.

The SX1115-RL has 2 Neutrik XLR connectors for Littlite gooseneck lamps to provide dimmable illumination of equipment racks in recording studios, custom design/build installations and FOH sound reinforcement applications.

The SX1115-RT has a remote turn-on capability for use in integrated power distribution systems. A rear-panel Phoenix connector allows the unit to be connected in a master-satellite configuration with a controller such as the SurgeX SEQ for the sequential power-up of multiple components.

SurgeX patented Advanced Series Mode reportedly stops multiple surges of up to 6,000 volts and unlimited surge current without producing ground contamination or common-mode disturbances. SurgeX products meet the most stringent government purchase specifications for branch-circuit surge suppressors. Their A-1-1 rating indicates dependable protection from destructive spikes, surges and inductive transients.
