Protect or Disconnect Circuitry: The Panamax MD2-RCA Surge Protector's exclusive "Protect or Disconnect" circuitry safeguards your equipment against all surges. In the event of a
catastrophic surge such as lightning, the MD2-RCA completely disconnects AC power to
your connected equipment.
Two AC Outlets: The two 3-prong AC outlets are turned 90-degress from
one another to accommodate different style plugs or transformers. One plug is
located on the left-side, while the other plug is located on the right-side.
Right-Angle AC Plug: The Panamax MD2-RCA Surge Protector features an
integrated right-angle 3-prong AC plug which plugs directly into an AC wall
