Panamax’s MAX® PM Family Honored at CEDIA EXPO 2008 With RESI Award for Best Power Management Product

PETALUMA, Calif. — Oct. 2, 2008 — Panamax, a world-leading provider of AC power management solutions, today announced that its MAX® PM family of power management products was recognized at CEDIA EXPO 2008 with a RESI Award for best power management product. Presented by Residential Systems magazine, the RESI Awards honor the most innovative product designs in the custom installation industry and were judged by an esteemed panel of custom installers and industrial designers.

“It is an honor to have our PM family recognized by Residential Systems as the best power management product, and we are proud of both the award and what our solutions bring to the CEDIA channel,” said Dave Keller, senior vice president of sales and marketing for Panamax and Furman. “The PM family is specifically designed to improve the audio and video quality of home theater components. By utilizing Linear Filtration Technology and power cleaning up to Level 4+, the products provide crisp, detailed images and sound for our customers. With additional technologies such as AVM, these units also protect components from damaging transients, ensuring their longevity.”

The PM Family consists of four power management products: the M4300-PM, M5100-PM, M5300-PM, and M5400-PM. The M4300-PM offers Level 2 power cleaning and Linear Filtration Technology (LiFT) to eliminate common symptoms of AC line noise, allowing equipment to perform at full capability 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 increased protection against AC noise, the M5100-PM offers Level 3 power cleaning and LiFT for a 60 percent increase in noise-eliminating efficiency over Level 2. The M5300-PM offers Level 4 power cleaning, while the M5400-PM’s Level 4+ performance adds voltage regulation for the clearest sound and image quality possible.

The M5100-PM features three isolated outlet banks, while the M5300-PM and M5400-PM offer five, including two high-current outlets. All three systems offer 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 delayed outlets.

For the protection and longevity of home theater components, all power management products feature Automatic Voltage Monitoring (AVM), a patented technology that monitors the incoming power as displayed on the digital voltmeter. In case of an undervoltage or an overvoltage, a flashing red lightning bolt will be displayed in the voltmeter, and power to the connected equipment is turned off automatically when either of these conditions is detected. When voltage returns to a safe level, power to the equipment is reconnected automatically.

Additionally, the new PM family products offer a USB charger and gaming AC convenience outlet on the front panel, allowing portable devices to be conveniently connected to and disconnected from the unit. The M5100-PM, M5300-PM, and M5400-PM also feature a LAN port on the front panel for additional protection of portable devices.

The PM family is currently available at an SRP of $299.95 for the M4300-PM, $399.95 for the M5100-PM, $499.95 for the M5300-PM, and $699.95 for the M5400-PM.
