Sanus Systems is now shipping the Sanus Elements ELM203, the second product within the Elements Surge Protection Series to be released this year. It is designed to allow audio-video users the ability to safeguard their electronic components and flat-panel TVs against damaging power surges.
“The ELM203 Low-Profile Surge Protector is an inexpensive way to incorporate surge protection into any home theater or audio system,” said Jason Schmidt, product manager for Sanus. “We’ve designed this product so it can be placed behind a wall-mounted TV or a piece of AV furniture, sight unseen. You will never notice it’s there until you need it,” Schmidt added.
The ELM203 offers 2,100-Joule protection and EMI/RFI noise filtration at a product depth of just 1.37 inches. The surge protector also offers RJ45/RJ11 connection for phone and Ethernet protection and includes a six-foot coaxial cable for cable or satellite signals and a six-foot phone cord.
Features include four swiveling outlets that can rotate 90 degrees to the left or right, allowing cables to sit nearly flush with the wall for added convenience and flexibility. The unit also includes lights for wire and ground and a Sanus logo that illuminates when the unit receives power, indicating to the user the product has been properly installed.
The ELM203 is currently available in black for a list price of $34.99 USD. Other products within the Sanus Elements Surge Protection Series include the ELM202 Low-Profile Surge Protector and the ELM205 Flat-Panel HD Power Conditioner and Surge Protector, which is set to ship in July.
