Panamax has introduced its first product to combine power management, surge protection and battery back-up for home theater systems all in a single unit.
Offered as a standalone product or as part of a rackmount solution, the MX5102 provides power management features such as linear filtration and surge protection as well as supplying UPS functionality through two of its 10 outlets. The MX5102 prevents critical equipment from losing its setup configuration and stored data, while avoiding hard-disk crashes in the event of a sustained power event, such as a power outage.
The MX5102 safeguards projection bulbs by allowing them to cool down properly before shutting off, saving money on replacement costs. An RS232 serial communication port provides connection and communication between the UPS and an HTPC (home theater personal computer) or home automation system. The MX5102 is available now at an MSRP of $649.95.
