Rack Mount Surge Eliminator: With SurgeX rack mount surge eliminators
your connected equipment will be protected from destructive spikes, surges, and
inductive transients that can cause disruptions and catastrophic damage.
A-1-1 Certified Surge Protection: All SurgeX products meet
Grade A, Class 1, Mode 1 surge protection certification. Grade A guarantees
protection from the worst surges normally found within a building during a
lightning strike (as defined by IEEE/ANSI C62.41-1991). Class 1 provides the
best quality surge suppression, while Mode 1 guarantees that the system ground
is not contaminated.
- Survived 1,000 surges of 6,000V/3000A with no failures or degradation
- Let-through voltage did not exceed 330V
- Ground was not contaminated
Advanced Series Mode Surge Elimination Technology: Featuring
Advanced Series Mode surge elimination technology, the SurgeX Rack Mount series
surge eliminator provides premium protection for sensitive equipment that relies
on audio and video performance. Its patented power protection technology is
non-sacrificial and eliminates surge energy up to 6,000 Volts, without producing
harmful side effects such as ground contamination or common mode disturbances
that can degrade the performance of AV systems.
Non-Sacrificial: Most importantly, SurgeX surge eliminators
do not incorporate sacrificial components of any kind, effectively guaranteeing
an unlimited service life without the requirement for testing and/or periodic
No Ground Contamination: SurgeX surge eliminators act first
as low pass filters which simply block the high-frequency (HF) components of
powerline surges. The remaining low-frequency (LF) surge energy is diverted into
a bank of capacitors where it is stored for the duration of the event and then
slowly discharged back across the incoming hot and neutral conductors without
involving any connection to equipment ground. SurgeX surge eliminators can thus
be placed anywhere along a power circuit without the ground reference elevation
disadvantage of many other surge protection devices.
ICE (Inrush Current Elimination): The SurgeX SX-1115-RT employs ICE
(Inrush Current Elimination) to protect your connected equipment when they are
powering up. Inrush is the initial current that occurs when a motor or
electronic equipment is first turned on. The inrush current is usually several
times higher than the normal operating current. In the case of electronic
equipment the initial inrush current occurs while the power supply charges up.
Equipment with a large current draw can have an inrush current large enough to
blow a circuit breaker or damage switches and relays.
Voltage Shutdown): The SX-115-RT's incorporates COUVS technology to monitor
incoming AC and automatically cuts off power to connected equipment if over
(145V) or under (90V) voltage is detected.
EMI/RFI Filtering: The SurgeX SX-1115-RT utilizes advanced
impedance tolerant EMI/RFI filters to virtually eliminate any line noise.
- EMI: Electromagnetic interference is a general type of
electric, radio or magnetic interference which is transmitted by conduction
or radiation and can be of a very wide frequency range.
- RF interference: Radio frequency interference is
interference which is caused by radio signals.
9 Industrial-Grade AC Outlets: The SXSX-1115-RT has a total of nine
industrial-grade 3-prong receptacles - six "switched", two "always
on", and a front-panel "courtesy" outlet. Each receptacle is rated for a maximum
load of 15 amps, but the total load also must not exceed 15 amps. Plug the
equipment cords into the always-on and switched receptacles as needed to power
- Three "Always On" Outlets: The three "always on" receptacles (2
rear/1 front) provide power as long as
power is supplied to the SX-1115-RT and the AC voltage is within normal
- Six "Switched" Outlets: The six "switched"
outlets provide power only when the SX-1115-RT's front-panel switch is
turned on and the remote control input is also activated.
Thermal Circuit Breaker Overload Protection: The SurgeX SX-1115-RT
incorporates thermal circuit breaker overload protection to guard against
Indicator Lights: The SX1115-RT has four indicator lights on the front-panel
- Power (red), Over/Under Voltage Protection (orange), Self-Test (green), &
- Power Indicator: The
red Power light indicates that the power switch is turned on, power is applied
to the unit and the AC voltage is within normal limits.
- Over/Under Voltage Protection: The orange Over/Under
Voltage Protection light indicates that the AC voltage is below 90 volts or
above 145 volts.
- Self-Test Light: The green Self-Test light indicates that power is applied to
the unit and the internal surge protection circuitry is fully functional.
- Remote Light: The
yellow Remote light indicates that the remote control is active and the
rear switched receptacles are on.
Remote Control Connections: Remote control connections are
wired to the green 7-pin plug-in Phoenix terminal block on the rear-panel of the
SX-1115-RT. You can unplug the terminal block to make connections and after you
have made the connections to the terminal block, plug it back into the connector
on the rear-panel of the SX-1115-RT.
- Pins 1, 2 & 3 (Contact Closure / Applied Voltage + / Applied Voltage
-): Control of the switched receptacles can be accomplished by using a
switch (contact closure), another SurgeX product such as the SEQ, or by an
applied voltage (5-30 volts DC). When using a switch, choose a switch with
gold contacts for the best long-term reliability.
- Pins 4 & 5 (Remote LED + / Remote LED -): An LED connected to
pins 4 and 5 will indicate when the switched receptacles are on.
- Pins 6 & 7 (Aux Relay Contacts): The auxiliary relay contacts
provide a way to cascade units or to provide confirmation feedback to a
Note: The terminal block features a pre-installed jumper wire
between pins 1 & 2 so that the SX-1115-RT can be used without a remote
control connection. If you will be using remote control, you will first need
to remove this jumper wire.
9' Attached Power Cord: The SurgeX SX-1115-RT features an
attached 9' power cord that is terminated by a 3-prong AC plug. The SX-1115-RT is
rated for a maximum load of 15 amps.
Mounting Options: The SurgeX SX-1115-RT is designed to be installed in a 19"
equipment rack and requires one unit (1-U) of rack space. It can also be simply placed horizontally on top of a flat surface, like a piece of AV furniture, stand, or table.
Warranty Information: SurgeX offers a limited lifetime
product warranty on their surge eliminators and a limited five year connected
protection warranty on equipment (up to $50,000) connected to the SurgeX surge
