Overview: The MIW-XT Max In-Wall Power Management Extender System
safe, protected AC power from Panamax Power Management components to a remotely
installed flat panel TV, ceiling-mounted projector, or powered subwoofer. The
inlet faceplate can be placed behind your equipment rack, and the outlet
faceplate hides discreetly behind the remotely installed component for a neat,
professional installation, without the bulky power strips or hanging power wires.
The MIW-XT faceplates are compatible with a standard dual gang in-wall J-box.
Design: The MIW-XT consists of a single AC inlet faceplate
and a single AC outlet faceplate for extending safe AC power from a Panamax power
conditioning component to a piece of equipment remotely installed away from the
equipment rack. The AC inlet and outlet are connected by common in-wall power
wiring (i.e. Romex). On each faceplate, there is a low-voltage signal bay for connecting or passing through
audio and video cables between the equipment rack to the remote component. The port can accommodate optional installation solutions
by using the supplied Decora adapter, pass-through insert, or Keystone 2-port
adapter. Optional MIW Signal Line Modules (sold separately) can also be used. A
6' AC inlet cord is provided.
AC Power Cables: The included 6' AC inlet cable has a
right-angle female plug that connects to the inlet faceplate and protrudes just
over 1" from the wall. The 11" flat power plug adapter goes
between the component's AC plug and the wall outlet so you can install the
equipment as close as 1" from the wall.
Note: Because the width of the plug adapter, the MIW-XT is not
recommended for use with the Samsung TV Ultra Slim Wall Mount (305WMN1000).
The wall mount reduces the gap between the TV and the wall to 5/8".
Low Voltage Signal Bay: You can use the low-voltage signal bay to pass
through the component's video and audio cables. You can use the MIW Pass-Through
insert, which comes installed on the mounting bracket, and cut a hole in the
rubber grommet so that it fits tightly around the cable. If you want terminals
at the wall plate, you can use the supplied Decora adapter or Keystone module
insert, along with the appropriate terminal modules (sold separately). Another
option is to use a Panamax MIW signal-line module (sold separately), such as the
MIW-5RCA, MIW-DATA, MIW-SVIDEO, or MIW-VGA.
