The TrickleStar 7-outlet Advanced PowerStrip is an energy-saving surge protector that saves money by reducing standby power waste. Featuring current-sensing circuitry, the Advanced PowerStrip senses whether the control device (typically a TV or PC) is either on, off, or in a standby state, and automatically removes and restores supplied power to the switched outlets based on the status of the control device.
Audio Visual (TV Entertainment System) Applications
The TrickleStar Advanced PowerStrip saves energy by allowing you to control supplied power to electronics in your entertainment system. Simply plug the TV into the dedicated control outlet and plug peripheral AV electronic equipment (such as a DVD player, AV receiver, speakers) into the green (energy-saving) switched outlets. When you turn off your TV, the power supplied to switched outlets is removed and AV peripheral electronics automatically power down, saving money by saving energy. The Advanced PowerStrip also includes two always-on outlets for electronic equipment that require constant power, such as cable/satellite boxes and digital video recorders.
Home Office & Workspace Applications
This intelligent surge protector is also a great power management solution for home office and commercial workspace applications. For computer workstations, plug the CPU or monitor into the dedicated control outlet and plug peripheral workspace electronic equipment (such as a printer, scanner, task light, etc.) into the green (energy-saving) switched outlets. The dedicated control outlet senses the power status of the computer (on, off, or standby) and automatically switches off supplied power to workspace peripheral electronics when the computer is powered off or goes into sleep mode.
Reduces Standby Power Waste
Standby power is energy consumed by electronics even after they are switched off. Through simple automation, the Advanced PowerStrip reduces wasteful standby power by automatically removing supplied power to peripheral devices when the primary control device is turned off.
Features an Adjustable Switching Threshold
An adjustable switch allows the user to easily adjust the threshold of the control device – the power value at which the Advanced PowerStrip switches on or off the switched outlets. If the control device is on and consuming power above the specified threshold, power is supplied to the switched outlets. If the control device is off or in standby mode and consuming less power than the specified threshold amount, supplied power to the switched outlets is then removed
Includes Premium-quality, Fireproof Surge Protection
The Advanced PowerStrip incorporates advanced surge protection technology with ceramic-encased Metal Oxide Varistors that suppress more energy and dissipate heat faster than traditional surge protection products. The ceramic casing is fireproof and therefore capable of preventing fire during abnormal surge conditions.
