SurgeX has officially introduced its first power management product, the XU115, to the residential integration channel.
Part of the company’s Eliminator Series, the XU115 is a 1000VA line interactive UPS that is designed to completely eliminate surges and transients.
The 2U rack mount unite includes both common and normal mode Impedance Tolerant EMI/RFI noise filtering, and provides a browser-based interface to manage power settings, diagnostics, and schedule shutdowns, and restarts. Automatic voltage regulation provides a stable AC source during less than optimal power conditions without the constant use of internal batteries, which is meant to increase battery life.
"With the introduction of the XU115 we are able to give our customers what they have been asking for: a failsafe UPS solution," SurgeX VP of sales Rick Komendera stated. "The XU115 is the first in a series of UPS products that SurgeX will deliver in the coming months, and our new residential UPS product line reinforces SurgeX’s leadership role as a full service provider of power management solutions. Our new UPS products are not only more compact than others, they also combine the benefits of battery backup protection with patented Advanced Series Mode surge elimination technology, to protect AV equipment from AC surges and electrical transients that can disrupt sound quality and digital performance."
The company’s SentryPlus Power Management and Diagnostic Software has been designed to enable installers to plan a schedule to shutdown, restart, and test UPS and control receptacles, as well as customize programmable actions. With SentryPlus, integrators can set up notifications of user-defined events via pager, email, network broadcast and SNMP, as well as access remote monitoring, control and configuration via a network.
As with all SurgeX products, the XU115 comes equipped with the patented SurgeX Advanced Series Mode surge elimination technology, which is designed to eliminate all surges up to 6,000 volts/3,000 Amps without producing harmful side effects such as ground contamination, common-mode disturbances, or voltage let-through. SurgeX believes that this technology is superior to conventional MOV and MOV-Hybrid circuitry, and is completely non-sacrificial.
The XU115 is A-1-1 Certified, comes with a 10-year parts and labor warranty as well as a 10-year true-connected equipment warranty. It also is made by hand in the U.S. and is currently shipping.
