Our Product Research Team
At Crutchfield, you'll get detailed, accurate information that's hard to find elsewhere.
That's because we have our own in-house Product Research team — they open the box,
verify contents, check the owner's manual, and record dimensions, features and specs.
We stay on top of new products and technologies to help people make informed choices.
SurgeGate Plus Circuitry: The
exclusive SurgeGate Plus Circuitry is a "power monitoring" system that
protects AC equipment against prolonged over-voltages and under-voltages. In the
event of a prolonged over-voltage or under-voltage, the SurgeGate Plus Circuitry
will disconnect power to the connected equipment, then automatically reconnect
it once power has returned to a safe level.
SignalPerfect Circuitry: Gold-plated
connectors and shielded SignalPerfect Circuitry provide the best protection
possible for standard cable TV. For the telephone line, SignalPerfect Circuitry
provides optimized signal line surge protection ensuring a clean, clear
connection. SignalPerfect Circuitry has auto-resetting phone line protection and
is DSL ready.
ProtectorDisconnect Circuitry: In
the event of a catastrophic surge, such as lightning, the ProtectorDisconnect
Circuitry completely disconnects power to all connected equipment.
State of the Art Filtration System: The AC outlets are fed through a "double
L" filtration circuit to eliminate EMI/RFI noise on all three power
paths (L-N, L-G and N-G), so even equipment with 2-blade plugs receive clean,
Always-On Outlets: Three
Always-On outlets remain on continually to provide a constant power source for
programmable audio/video components.
Switched Outlets: The MAX 4300
has four switched outlets that turn your connected equipment on or off with one
of two triggers, the front-panel switched outlets pushbutton or the voltage
sense trigger input.
Voltage Sense Trigger: This
feature provides an On/Off trigger for the MAX 4300 using a 12VDC remote control
signal. Many components have a 12VDC trigger built-in and will transmit a
constant power signal when turned on and in use. This power signal will initiate
the startup or shutdown sequence of the MAX 4300's switched outlets. The MAX
4300 voltage sense trigger input uses a standard 1/8" mini-plug jack.
Circuit Breaker: A circuit
breaker is located on the back panel of the MAX 4300. The circuit breaker will
trip only if the total current draw exceeds the maximum current rating (15A).
This means that collectively, all outlets must draw more than 15 amps before the
circuit breaker will trip.
$5,000,000 Lifetime Connected
Equipment Warranty: Panamax will replace, pay to replace at fair market
value, or pay to repair, up to $5,000,000 of equipment that is damaged by an AC
surge while connected to a properly installed Panamax surge protector, if the
surge protector shows signs of surge damage or is operating outside of design
specifications. For coverage conditions and information on how to make a claim,
please see the warranty sheet.
Status Indicators: The MAX 4300
has the following status LEDs on the front panel: switched outlets, ground ok,
line fault (called "ground fault" in manual, but labeled "line fault" on front of unit), and unsafe voltage.
