About the Panamax M8-HT

The Panamax M8-HT provides protection for your audio/video components, including cable or digital satellite TV systems. This power conditioner shields against harmful spikes and power fluctuations, and filters out the RF (radio frequency) and electromagnetic interference that can degrade your system's performance.

The Panamax M8-HT provides protection for your audio/video components, including cable or digital satellite TV systems. This power conditioner shields against harmful spikes and power fluctuations, and filters out the RF (radio frequency) and electromagnetic interference that can degrade your system's performance.

The M8-HT features eight fully protected AC outlets, conveniently spaced to allow for bulky transformers. You get three sets of protected coaxial input/output jacks for a cable, antenna, or digital satellite TV connections. There's also a protected telephone line input/output.

The M8-HT reacts in less than a nanosecond during a spike, breaking the connection to protect your equipment. The six-foot power cord has a right-angle plug that hugs the wall, for an easy fit behind a chair or sofa. You can also mount this conditioner on your wall for out-of-the-way placement.

Hi Definition Ready: The Panamax M8-HT has been designed to work with your High Definition system. The M8-HT's coaxial protection circuits achieve optimum signal quality that have the less than 0.5dB of attenuation from 0MHz to 2.2GHz. The upgraded coaxial protection has been specifically designed to virtually eliminate signal loss. The clamping level 75 V will meet the demands of both cable and satellite voltage while minimizing exposure to damaging spikes and surges.

Telephone Line Protection: The M8-HT is equipped with a RJ-11 telephone jack input and two RJ-11 telephone jack outputs which protect equipment from electrical surges that travel over Telephone and network lines.

Lifetime $5,000,000 Connected Equipment Warranty: Panamax will replace or repair equipment that is damaged by an AC or signal line surge while connected to a properly installed Panamax surge protector (up to $5,000,000).
