Overview: The Monster EP-IR-2450 PowerCenter does an excellent job of
protecting your components from harmful power surges and virtually stops the
electromagnetic and radio frequency noise that goes right through typical surge
protectors which can degrade sound and picture quality.
Tri-Mode Protection Circuitry: The Monster EP-IR-2450 PowerCenter
features Tri-Mode Protection Circuitry with a 6,420 Joule Rating that provides a
high level of surge protection to your connected components.
T2 Technology: T2 Technology is an active electronic
microprocessor-controlled circuit that sits in front of the surge protection
circuitry. T2 monitors the line, neutral and ground lines and automatically disconnects the
PowerCenter from the AC power line when a low-voltage sag or high-voltage swell
occurs (continuous voltage below 80Vrm or above 132 Vrms), shutting down the
Monster PowerCenter for 15 seconds. When the under-voltage or over-voltage
condition returns to normal, T2 reconnects the PowerCenter to full operation
after 15 seconds. If the fault condition does not clear, the T2 comparator
circuit keeps the unit shut down.
Clean Power Stage 2 Circuitry: The EP-IR-2450 incorporates Monster
Clean Power Stage 2 circuitry, which filters both AC powerline noise and reduces
noise generated by your connected equipment. Clean Power Stage 2 features
ultra-advanced, isolated filters that include video, analog audio,
high-definition digital, and an ultra-high current audio filter to provide for
the best possible AC powerline noise rejection and inter-component isolation for
improved component-generated noise rejection. The result is high quality picture
and sound that's free from performance-damaging interference.
HD Clean Power Filters: The EP-IR-2450 PowerCenter features HD
Clean Power filters specifically engineered to get the best picture and sound
performance from today's high definition digital home theater components.
7 Isolated Filtered Clean Power Outlets: The EP-IR-2450 PowerCenter
features 7 isolated filtered Clean Power 3-prong outlets.
- 4 High Definition Digital Filter Outlets: The PowerCenter
features 4 HD Digital Filter Outlets (unswitched) for your DVD, DVR,
Cable/Sat and HDTV/TV components.
- 1 Analog Audio Filter Outlet: The unit features 1 analog audio
filter outlet (switched) designed for your A/V receiver.
- 2 Ultra-High Current Audio Filter Outlets: The EP-IR-2450 also
features 2 ultra-high current audio filter outlets (switched and PLC
compatible) for connecting your main power amplifier and powered subwoofer.
IR Control Technology: EP-IR-2450 PowerCenter also incorporates
exclusive Monster IR Control technology which lets you keep your components out
of sight behind a cabinet door, and still maintain full remote control
capability. the Power Center does this be receiving your remote control's
commands via the PowerCenter's built-in IR receiver and the included external IR
receiver by distributing them to your audio and video components via the
included IR emitter cables. The PowerCenter is equipped with one 3.5mm IR input
and four 3.5mm IR outputs. The unit comes supplied with two dual-head IR
emitters and one single-head IR emitter, as well as a 6' minijack cable. The IR
emitters have an approximate range of 5-10 feet. The included IR receiver
measures 4.255" wide x 0.915" tall x 2.585" deep.
Coaxial Protection: The PowerCenter features two gold-plated coaxial
connection inputs and two gold-plated coaxial connection outputs which provide
protection against damaging voltage surges and spikes on the incoming coax cable
from Off-air, Cable or Satellite TV. A single 42' coax cable is provided.
Phone Line Surge Suppression: The one RJ-11 input and two RJ-11
outputs provide surge protection against damaging voltage surges and spike
coming from your phone line. A single 6' RJ-11 cable is provided.
Network Surge Suppression: One RJ-45 output and one RJ-45 input
provide surge protection against damaging voltage surges and spikes coming from
the Internet network line or local are network (LAN).
AC Cord: The PowerCenter is equipped with an extra-long 8' PowerLine
Circuit Breaker: The EP-IR-2450 features a resettable 15-amp circuit
LED Indicators/Voltage Meter: The PowerCenter features five LED status
indicators along with a digital input voltage meter on the front panel. The LED
status indicators are labeled - Clean Power On, Protection On, Ground OK, Wiring
OK, and Abnormal Voltage. The units Voltage Meter display can be dimmed.
Rack Mounting: This Monster PowerCenter includes two rack ears,
mounting plates and mounting screws for installation into a standard size
Connected Equipment Warranty: For 5 years from the date of
purchase, Monster Cable will replace, pay to repair or pay the fair market value
of equipment that is damaged by an AC power, cable, telephone or lighting surge
while connected to a properly installed Monster Cable PowerCenter. This warranty
covers up to $350,000 worth of connected equipment. In order for the warranty to
be valid every wire leading into or out of your equipment must be connected
properly to the surge protector and the unit must be connected to a properly
grounded 3-wire outlet.
