Product Research



Overview: The unit has a purple top and dark gray bottom. It has five three pronged AC outlets on the right side of the top (labeled VCR and color coded in yellow, DVD/LD color coded in red; CABLE/SAT color coded in purple, RECEIVER/AMP color coded in orange and CD color coded in blue. There are three additional three pronged AC outlets labeled ACCESSORY, SPARE and TV/MONITOR on the left hand side. They are spaced 1.5" apart to allow for the use of transformers. There is a gold plated, threaded coax input and output on the left hand side of the unit that can be used with either cable or antennas. There is no RJ-11 telephone protection, making the warranty invalid if used with a DBS system or other system requiring a phone connection.

SurgeGuard: The multiple SurgeGuard feature stops harmful power surges and voltage spikes.

Coax Surge Protection: There is special surge protection for the coax output with virtually no signal loss.

Monster Video Connection: A Monster video cable is included to ensure a good video connection.

Fast Response Time: The unit responds within one nanosecond to power surges and voltage spikes.

Audible Alarm: There is an audible alarm that will alert you when a surge has hit.

Eight AC Outlets: There are eight three prong AC outlets; five of the outlets are color-coded.

Color Coded Outlets and Cable Labels: The five color coded outlets and supplied cord labels prevent you from accidentally disconnecting the wrong cord.

Right Angle Plug on Power Cord: The 8 foot, high current power cord is right angled to hug the wall. The plug has 24k gold plated contacts for corrosion resistance; this helps ensure maximum power transfer.

Wall Mountable: There are keyhole slots on the back of the unit that allow for wall mounting (wall screws not supplied).

Indoor Use Design: The UL listed protector is for indoor use only.

Proper Surge Protection: Every wire leading into or out of your equipment must be connected properly to the surge protector or the $25,000.00 warranty is invalid.You must connect the unit to a properly grounded 3-wire outlet or the warranty will be invalid.

Connected Equipment Warranty: Monster Cable will replace, pay to repair or pay the fair market value of equipment that is damaged by an AC power or lighting surge while connected to a properly installed Monster Cable Surge Protector.
