Tributaries Plugs In Flexible New Power Strip
Tributaries® has introduced their latest product—an innovative new AC power strip, the Tributaries® PWRS-T10.
In a single compact, attractive unit, the PWRS-T10 offers the peace of mind that comes only with highly effective surge suppression and noise filtering for AC power, and signal-line protection for telecomm (RJ-11), network (RJ-45), and cable, antenna, and satellite (F-connector) signals.
The PWRS-T10 also offers great convenience, thanks to the unique swivel action of 5 of its 10 outlets, which permits exceptional flexibility in accommodating bulky AC plugs—plus the ability to see at a glance whether the unit’s MOVs are functioning, and therefore fully protecting the connected equipment.
Every bit as important, the Tributaries® PWRS-T10 delivers high-level protection from surge, overvoltage, and powerline noise or electromagnetic interference. Surge protection is employed across all three legs of the AC circuit, with voltage-spike protection to 6 kilovolts and peak current-spike handling up to 192 kiloamps. EMI noise filtering extends up to 58dB of power-cleaning suppression over a range of 150kHz to 100MHz.
The PWRS-T10’s single-line telecomm, network, and coax protections each accept 1-in/1-out connections, and incorporate well-engineered, high-performance, low-loss protection.
The new PWRS-T10’s power sockets are laid out in two rows of 5 three-prong outlets each. One row is fixed, with integral safety shutters; each outlet in the other row can be rotated up to 90° to allow (for example) every other plug to be approached from the strip’s edge rather than from its top, and thus permitting the connection of multiple bulky power-supply modules without them interfering with each other.
The PWRS-T10 also incorporates a pair of blue LEDs that indicate the “OK” status of its surge-protection components and of the house-wiring grounding. Rated for heavy duty at 15 amps for up to 1875 watts of load, the PWRS-T10 offers plenty of coverage for an entire high-performance home theater system.
The Tributaries® PWRS-T10 power-strip is equipped with a fixed, high-quality, three-prong IEC power cord, comes with one each telephone, network, and coaxial (F-connector) cables, and features a $25,000 warranty on connected equipment and a three-year warranty on parts and labor.
The PWRS-T10 is available now, with an MSRP of $80.
