Overview: The Panamax MB850 combines surge protection, battery
backup, and automatic voltage regulation (AVR) to protect your home's audio/video
components and computer gear. (Note: It should not be used with
any amplifier or powered subwoofer.) The MB850 provides automatic voltage regulation for
inconsistent utility power. The MB850 features 890 Joules of surge protection,
and provides battery backup during power outages. The Panamax MB850 ensures
consistent power to your computer system and its included software will
automatically save your open files and shutdown your computer system during
utility power loss.
Note: The Panamax UPS may be used immediately
out of the box. However, recharging the batteries for at least 16
hours is recommended to ensure that the battery's maximum charge
capacity is achieved.
Automatic Voltage Regulator (AVR): ;Automatic Voltage Regulation
stabilizes input voltage to an appropriate level for optimal equipment performance
by completely eliminating brownouts and overvoltages. Incoming utility power may be
damaging to important data files, but with Automatic Voltage Regulation (AVR), the
computer will not experience damaging voltage levels. An Automatic Voltage Regulator
automatically increase low or decreases high voltage to a consistent, computer safe
110v/120v. The unit's powerful sealed lead-acid batteries will provide power only if
the incoming voltage drops below 90v or increase above 140v.
Auto-Shutdown Software: The supplied PowerPanel Personal Edition
software is designed to facilitate the operation of the MB850. It works with the
battery backup to provide a complete power protection solution. There are three
main functions of this software:
- Monitor the operation of the battery backup and AC
utility power at all times.
- Customize your usage of the battery backup.
- Protect your system and prevent data loss when power
Note: You will need to install the
included software from the supplied CD-ROM on to your
computer to take advantage of these features. The Power
Panel Personal Edition Management Software is compatible
with Windows 2000, 2003, XP, and Vista.
USB + Serial Port: The MB850's USB type-B port and RS-232 serial
port allows your home theater PC to communicate with the UPS through a USB or serial
port cable connection. The UPS communicates its status to the your PC using the
supplied software when connected with a USB port. The serial port is only used
with third party UPS software such as the Microsoft UPS Power Option of Windows
2000, XP, and Vista.
Note: The serial port and USB port cannot
be used to control two computers concurrently. Only one port
will function at a time.
5 Battery Powered and Surge Protected Outlets: The MB850's five
battery powered/surge protected outlets provide continuous battery backup when power
is interrupted. During power disruptions the Panamax MB850 Battery Backup provides
constant power to your equipment, such as:
- Lamp Based Display: Prevent expensive
lamp burnout in lamp based displays (cooling fan can continue
to properly cool down lamp).
- DVR: Avoid loss of DVR recorded TV
- Gaming: Prevent loss of unsaved games
during saving and loading.
- HT System: Avoid the time and hassle
of rebooting and configuring your home theater system.
Estimated Runtime In Minutes: The Panamax MDB850 provides up to
2 hours of battery backup. It offers the following estimated runtimes in minutes.
- DLP TV (260-watts) = 6 minutes
- HD Gaming Console = 12 minutes
- Satellite Receiver/Cable Box = 80 minutes
- Media Player = 80 minutes
- DVR/Tivo = 120 minutes
4 Fulltime Surge Protected Outlets: The Panamax MB850 offers 4
additional fulltime surge protected outlets that provide complete surge protection
for equipment not requiring battery backup.
Ethernet Protection Ports: The Panamax MB850 is equipped with
two RJ-45 ports to provide Phone, Modem, DSL, and/or Ethernet protection (Combination
Ethernet or phone line protection).
Coax Connections: The MB850 features a pair of gold-plated,
threaded coax connectors (1 in/1 out) that offer cable/satellite surge protection.
