Our take on the Panamax MIW Power-Pro PFP

by Loren Barstow
Panamax

Install the Panamax MIW Power-Pro PFP behind your wall-mounted flat-panel TV to protect your set against power surges and unsafe overvoltage conditions. Its two recessed outlets not only safeguard your TV and another device, but they also include built-in noise filtration to improve your gear's performance. And a voltage monitoring circuit disconnects power if the voltage reaches an unsafe level, then automatically reconnects power when safe voltage returns. This is also a great solution for a ceiling-mounted projector.

Note: Installation by a licensed electrician is recommended.

Highlights:

  • 2 recessed, surge-protected AC outlets
  • ultra-thin profile
  • surge and overvoltage protection
  • Level 1 noise filtration improves performance of connected gear
  • line fault (overvoltage) and power status LED indicators
  • 15-amp total current capacity
  • 546-joule surge protection
  • UL 1449 rating: 330V
  • compatible with most standard electrical boxes — an electrical box is not included
  • CSA-certified for in-home use
  • 4-13/16"W x 4-13/16"H x 2-5/16"D
  • warranty: 3 years
  • Our 60-day money-back guarantee

Features

Overview: The MIW-Power-Pro-PFP provides safe and noise-free filtered AC power to a remotely installed flat panel TV or ceiling-mounted projector. The outlet faceplate hides discreetly behind the installed component for a neat, professional installation, without the bulky power strips or hanging power wires. The MIW-Power-Pro-PFP faceplate requires a 4" wide by 3-3/4" high hole in the wall for the outlet box (not included).

Installation Precaution: It is required that there must be at least 30 feet of wire between the electrical outlet and the electrical service panel. This is because of the UL 3rd Edition Standard for a Type 3 device.

Power Outlets: The MIW-Power-Pro-PFP has two recessed standard 3-pronged AC receptacles. The opening for the outlets is 1-9/16" wide by 2-5/8" high by 1/2" deep, and can accommodate most straight 3-pronged power plugs. Right-angled power cords may not fit properly, or may prevent more than one component to be plugged in at a time.

Voltage Monitoring Circuit: The built-in Voltage Monitoring Circuit protects equipment against prolonged over-voltages or under-voltages by disconnecting the power, then reconnecting it when safe power returns. The over-voltage shutoff point is 142 VAC (+/- 5 VAC), while the under-voltage shutoff is 84 VAC (+/- 6 VAC). A Line Fault LED on the faceplate will glow as long as the unsafe voltage condition exists.

Power On Indicator: A blue LED on the faceplate will glow to indicate power is being supplied to the outlets of the MIW-Power-Pro-PFP.

Surge Protection: The MIW-Power-Pro-PFP provides a catastrophic surge circuit and thermal fusing to protect your connected equipment from power surges and spikes.

Specifications:

  • Line Voltage: 120V, 50/60 Hz
  • Total Current Capacity: 15A
  • Voltage Protection Rating (UL 1449 3rd Edition, 3000A): 500 V
  • Energy Dissipation: 546 Joules
  • Peak Impulse Current: 32,500 A
  • Noise Filtration: Level 1

Panamax MIWPWRPRO

Written By KenV, Dallas, TX on Sunday, September 30, 2012
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
This product was exactly what I was looking for and was a perfect fit as far as allowing enough room to mount a slim wall-mounted flat screen TV. It works exactly as advertised and was very easy to install. The only caution I would advise is if you are pre-installing an electrical box before your surge protector arrives, be sure to install a fairly large two-gang box as the surge protector takes up a fair bit of space in the box. Otherwise, it was a snap to install and exactly fits the bill.
