ART PB 4x4 Rackmount 8 Outlet Power Conditioner & Surge Protector

You Pay: $49.00

The ART PB 4x4 Rackmount 8 Outlet Power Conditioner is a low-cost AC power solution for rackmount systems. The PB 4x4 can be installed into the top slot of a rack, and the eight switched AC outlets in the rear panel will power up and protect all your equipment, up to a 15A load.

The PB 4x4 conditions your delicate electronic equipment with a high-voltage surge and transient suppressor and an RFI/EMI interference filter. The fast-acting suppression circuit responds in less than a nanosecond, clamping transient voltages to safe levels. The filter works to prevent noise from fluorescent lights, certain dimmers, radio transmitters, and similar sources of "electronic pollution" from entering the AC line, and, from there, leaking into sensitive audio, video, or computer circuits.

The PB 4x4 also features ART's "4x4" distribution on the back of the unit - four of the eight rear outputs are 1.25" apart. This allows the user to plug in wide power cables and multiple wall wart devices, and still have eight total power outlets to choose from.

A front-mounted circuit breaker reset switch is provided on the front panel. If the total load on the PB 4x4 (combining all outlets) exceeds the 15A (or 1800W) limit the circuit breaker will trip.
A convenient master switch for the rear outlets which glows when the power is on.
Standard level filtration from radio frequencies and electromagnetic interference.

        Comments about ART PB 4x4 Rackmount 8 Outlet Power Conditioner & Surge Protector:

        I usually go with Furman but I added a new rack and needed basic power conditioning and switching in my home studio. The ART PB 4x4 has been a nice addition with 4 closely grouped outlets on one side and 4 wider spaced outlets grouped on the other for wall-warts. The unit is clean and so far hasn't introduced any noise into my system. There's a circuit breaker button on the front bezel so you don't have to get behind your rack if it gets tripped. I do have a set of powered monitors connected to it and the unit is performing well. Pretty solid buy at the price point it's selling for.

              Does what it's supposed to do. Price is great compared to some other name brand items that do the same thing. Build quality is nice and sturdy.

                    my sterei system has 7-8 components having a power conditioner to plug them all into is a must, the PB 4x4 hass 8 sockets. so far no turn on thumps, no extra noise noted. Im sure the surge suppressor will work is the house gets struck by lightning, particularly like the circuit breaker being front mounted, the one it replaced had it on the back. so far so good. good deal for the price

                        Four of the outlets on the back are perfect when having to plug in wall-warts!

We found it to be functional, exceeding all required specifications and extremely affordable which pleased our customer. You can buy a more expensive model, but this one does the job.
