The Alesis PowerTrip8 Power Conditioner & Surge Protector is a low-cost AC power solution for rackmount systems. Install the PowerTrip8 power control unit in the top slot of your 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 line voltage monitor displays incoming voltage, and the two slide-out, swiveling light fixtures provide illumination of your gear, adjustable via the front-panel dimmer control.
The PowerTrip8 features a digital LED voltmeter that displays the incoming line voltage from 60 to 150 VAC. The PowerTrip8 protects your delicate electronic equipment with a high-voltage surge and transient suppressor and a 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.
- A circuit breaker is provided on the rear panel. If the total load on the Power Conditioner (combining all outlets) exceeds the 15A (or 1800W limit), the circuit breaker will trip. It may be easily reset by pushing in a button.
- A convenient master switch for the rear outlets which glows when the power is on. There is a separate "Rack Lights" switch for the lamps, plus a dimmer control knob which regulates the lamps' brightness.
- Standard level filtration from radio frequencies and electromagnetic interference.
