PETALUMA, Calif. -- March 22, 2011 -- Panamax/Furman today announced that the company is now shipping the latest addition to its award-winning PFPower in-wall family -- the MIW-SURGE-1G -- in addition to the enhanced MIW-SURGE optimized for easier installation. The units are ideal for AC power protection of flat-panel displays that are mounted close to the wall and other components located away from the main system rack or cabinet. The MIW-SURGE's standard size and ease of installation also makes it ideal for protection of other electronics around the house, such as home office electronics and kitchen appliances.
The MIW-SURGE-1G features two surge-protected outlets with Protect or Disconnect(TM) circuitry and fits in standard single-gang plastic or metal outlet boxes. To ensure compatibility with most standard installations, the unit uses standard wiring device screw-hole alignment. An LED displays power status in green or a line fault in red. The MIW-SURGE-1G is compatible with Decora(R) faceplates, allowing for seamless integration into any home theater design or home décor.
Additionally, Panamax/Furman's award-winning MIW-SURGE has recently been optimized with an updated design for faster and easier installation in common plastic retro electrical boxes, allowing the unit to be installed in less than 10 minutes by a licensed high-voltage installer. The MIW-SURGE provides one AC outlet of in-wall point-of-use surge protection with a variety of signal side options including Decora adapters and keystone port compatibility, for a complete, clean cable management solution for mounted displays and other surface installed devices.
"The latest additions to our in-wall family provide a number of benefits to installers and their customers," said Dave Keller, senior vice president of sales and marketing for Panamax/Furman. "In addition to eliminating the need for a second power management unit for remotely located equipment, or the running of unsightly extension cords, the MIW-SURGE-1G is bolstered with Protect or Disconnect circuitry and an intuitive bi-colored LED for determining power status. The upgraded MIW-SURGE dramatically reduces time in the field for installers, lowering labor costs and getting them on to the next job more quickly."
The MIW-SURGE-1G and MIW-SURGE are available at MSRPs of $49.95 and $69.95, respectively.
