New Panamax Products and Technologies on Display at CEDIA 2008:

MIW-XT
The new MIW-XT is designed to extend noise-free, safe power from Panamax power management components to remote panel displays, ceiling-mounted video projectors, or powered sub-woofers in an aesthetically pleasing manner. For a clean, code-compliant, and professional installation, the power management extender system mounts behind electronic equipment and offers an ultra-thin profile that allows displays to hang less than one inch from the wall. The signal line module bay’s inlet and outlet provide a range of optional installation solutions by using a Decora® adapter to accommodate a variety of audio/video connections; a pass-through insert with adjustable depths for a Keystone adapter or rubber grommet; and a Keystone 2-port adapter for flexible connection capability. The system accommodates optional MIW signal line modules, including the MIW-5RCA, MIW-VGA, MIW-SVIDEO, and MIW-DATA. The MIW-XT not only protects connected equipment, but offers superior EMI/RFI noise filtration built into outlet receptacles for improved audio and video quality. The SRP is $149.95.

Panamax PM Power Management Family
Panamax will be displaying the performance-enhancing PM family of power management products: the M4300-PM, M5100-PM, M5300-PM, and M5400-PM. All components in the PM family are specifically designed for high-definition systems and feature a distinctive, easy-to-understand icon system for comparing features and evaluating system performance.

M4300-PM
The M4300-PM power management system offers Level 2 power cleaning and Linear Filtration Technology (LiFT) to eliminate common symptoms of AC line noise, allowing equipment to perform at full capacity for an optimal home theater experience. Additionally, noise isolation between the two isolated outlet banks prevents any noise created by a component plugged into one bank from contaminating the power to equipment plugged into the other outlet bank. For the protection and longevity of home theater components, the M4300-PM features Automatic Voltage Monitoring (AVM™), a patent-pending technology that monitors the incoming power as displayed on the digital voltmeter. A USB charger and gaming convenience outlet on the front allow portable devices to be conveniently connected to and disconnected from the unit. The SRP is $299.95.

M5100-PM
For increased protection against AC noise, the M5100-PM power management system offers Level 3 power cleaning and Linear Filtration Technology (LiFT) for a 60 percent increase in noise-eliminating efficiency over Level 2. The M5100-PM also features three isolated outlet banks, including two high-current outlets, and offers sequential startup/shutdown, which prevents internally generated voltage transients that occur when home theater components are powered on or off at the same time. A 12-volt trigger input allows source equipment to activate or deactivate the M5100-PM’s switched outlets. For the protection and longevity of home theater components, the M5100-PM features Automatic Voltage Monitoring (AVM), a patent-pending technology that monitors the incoming power as displayed on the digital voltmeter. A USB charger, gaming convenience outlet, and gaming LAN port on the front allow portable devices to be conveniently connected to and disconnected from the unit. The SRP is $399.95.

M5300-PM
For a higher level of protection against AC noise, the M5300-PM power management system offers Level 4 power cleaning and Linear Filtration Technology (LiFT), which evenly eliminates noise across the entire bandwidth, ensuring peak audio and video performance by reducing harmonic distortion and improving the signal-to-noise ratio. The M5300-PM also features five isolated outlet banks and offers sequential startup/shutdown, which prevents internally generated voltage transients that occur when home theater components are powered on or off at the same time. A 12-volt trigger input allows source equipment to activate or deactivate the M5300-PM’s switched outlets. For the protection and longevity of home theater components, the M5300-PM features Automatic Voltage Monitoring (AVM), a patent-pending technology that monitors the incoming power. A USB charger, gaming convenience outlet, and gaming LAN port on the front allow portable devices to be conveniently connected to and disconnected from the unit. The SRP is $499.95.

M5400-PM
In addition to offering Level 4+ power cleaning and Linear Filtration Technology (LiFT) for the best possible sound and image quality from home theater components, the M5400-PM power management system also features voltage regulation, which regulates the output voltage for banks 1 through 4 to 120 V ± 5 V. The M5400-PM also features five isolated outlet banks and offers sequential startup/shutdown, which prevents internally generated voltage transients that occur when home theater components are powered on or off at the same time. A 12-volt trigger input allows source equipment to activate or deactivate the M5400-PM’s switched outlets. For the protection and longevity of home theater components, the M5400-PM features Automatic Voltage Monitoring (AVM), a patent-pending technology that monitors the incoming power. A USB charger, gaming convenience outlet, and gaming LAN port on the front allow portable devices to be conveniently connected to and disconnected from the unit. The SRP is $699.95.

M7500CRD – IP
The new M7500CRD-IP card provides complete IP-based control of the MAX™ 7500-PRO power management system. With the card, users have control of individual outlet banks featuring power, trigger, and delay settings. Remote diagnostics check the unit status and incoming line voltages, while e-mail alerts for over- and undervoltages help users anticipate or prevent service calls. The IP card features an easy plug-and-play installation interface and spring-loaded screws to secure the card to the rear of the MAX 7500-PRO. An included LAN port is compatible with BaseT 10/100. The SRP is $199.95.

MFP-400 and MFP-300
Featuring a slimline design that makes them ideal for mounting out-of-view behind flat panel displays, the MFP-300 and MFP-400 offer power cleaning and premium filtration for the best possible sound and picture quality. Both units feature Panamax’s exclusive
Protect or Disconnect™ circuitry, which completely removes the AC power from connected equipment in the event of a catastrophic surge, while integrated coax/sat protection prevents electrical surges that travel over cable, satellite, and antenna lines from damaging equipment. For component longevity, the MFP-400 offers Automatic Voltage Monitoring (AVM) circuitry that monitors the incoming AC power and disconnects power to connected components in case of an unsafe voltage. Once the voltage returns to safe levels, the MFP-400 restores the power supply to the connected equipment. As an entry-level power management solution, the MFP-300 is available at an SRP of $149.95. The MFP-400 is available at an SRP of $199.95.
