With their innovative green outlet array, they save money, conserve electricity and reduce carbon footprints — without sacrificing the high level of power protection that home and business users demand for their valuable equipment.
Chicago, IL (Vocus) March 2, 2010
Tripp Lite, a world-leading manufacturer of power protection equipment, has introduced two new ECO-Surge™ Suppressors with energy-saving outlets designed to conserve energy by eliminating “phantom loads.”
The new 12- and 8-outlet Surge Suppressors feature a green outlet array with Master and Power Save outlets that cut power to idle peripherals when the primary device is turned off. For example, if a notebook computer is connected to the Master outlet, turning it off will also automatically cut power to peripheral devices connected to the Power Save outlets, such as monitors, printers, scanners or desk lamps. This feature eliminates wasteful “phantom loads” that continue to consume electricity even when a device appears to be turned off.
Key Features and Benefits:
- Green outlet array saves up to $40 on an average annual electric bill
- Green function can be turned off with manual switch
- Always-on outlets provide continuous power
- Selectable wattage switch allows devices as small as netbooks to be assigned as master device
- Dataline surge protection options for computers and A/V components
- Manufactured in accordance with strict RoHS environmental standards
“We’re excited to be introducing these new, environmentally friendly surge suppressors to the market,” said Karenann Brow, Tripp Lite Senior Product Manager. “With their innovative green outlet array, they save money, conserve electricity and reduce carbon footprints — without sacrificing the high level of power protection that home and business users demand for their valuable equipment.”
