Overview: The Furman Merit X Series M-8X² is rack-mountable
power conditioner, designed for use by audio/video professionals, contractors,
broadcasters, musicians, and home owners. It has 8 high-quality AC outlets on
the rear panel, plus a front panel convenience outlet. The unit is
rack-mountable, and takes up 1U of rack space. The M-8X² has a flexible, a 6.5' power cord with three 14-gauge conductors and a 3-conductor
Applications: The M-8X² is recommended for professional audio
and video applications, and can be installed in permanent or portable rack
systems. It can also be used in rack-mounted home A/V systems.
Rear Panel AC Outlets: The M-8X² has a total of eight
3-pronged outlets on the rear panel. Using the front panel rocker switch, all of
the outlets are turned on at once. Three of the outlets are spaced 2-1/2" apart to accommodate bulky AC adapters ("wall warts").
The other 5 outlets are spaced 1-1/4" apart.
Convenience Outlet: On the front panel, a single 3-pronged
convenience outlet is provided for powering devices that are not considered to
be "permanently" installed. This allows you to charge your mobile phone or
tablet without having to plug it into a rear outlet. The front panel outlet is
switched on/off with the other outlets.
Surge Suppression: The M8-Dx provides excellent surge
suppression for your connected equipment, with a 150 Joule rating (energy
Noise Filtering: The unit provides AC noise filtering to
reduce radio frequency (RFI) and electromagnetic interference (EMI). By reducing
the noise floor caused by dirty AC power coming into your sound and video
equipment, you will get better performance without lines, pops, crackles, hum,
or radio station signals coming out of your equipment.
Circuit Breaker: The M-8X² has a resettable 15 Amp thermal
circuit breaker on the front panel. If the breaker encounters an excessive load,
it will "trip" to protect the connected components. After resetting the circuit
breaker, you should reduce the load before turning the unit on.
