Furman M-8Lx Merit X Series 8 Outlet Power Conditioner & Surge Protector - with Dual Rack Lights

You Pay: $66.45

The Furman M-8Lx Merit X Series 8 Outlet Power Conditioner is a low-cost AC power solution for rack mount systems. Install an M-8Lx 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 M-8Lx also features an additional AC outlet on the front panel, and two pull-out light tubes for rack illumination, with dimmer control.

Merit X Series conditioners protect your delicate electronic equipment by combining high voltage varistor (MOV) surge and transient suppressors. The fast-acting suppression circuit quickly responds, and clamps transient voltages to safe levels. An RFI/EMI interference filter works to prevent noise from fluorescent lights, certain dimmers, radio transmitters, and similar sources of "electronic pollution" from contaminating the AC line, and from there leaking into sensitive audio, video, or computer circuits.

The M-8Lx features two slide out, swiveling light fixtures that provide discreet illumination of your equipment on stages, in studios, and in other dark places. A dimmer knob lets you adjust the lamp brightness to just the right level.

The rear outlets have been spaced to accommodate even the bulkiest of wall warts and adapters.
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.

                What can you say about the old standby in rack power conditioning that hasn't been said before? I've installed mine "backwards" as I don't really ever need to light the front of my rack but it's been really helpful having it backwards to light where all the connections are. May not look as cool, but it works.

                        Using this device for a touring media server rack. Best production and features for the money. Nice arrangement of plugs on the back to accomidate some wall-warts and front outlet is very handy for accessories like local monitor, phone charger, testing equipment. Bright worklights. I miss the lighted power switch from the PL series as the power indicator is small and difficult to see. No markings on the switch to let you know when way is on.

                              Very sturdy and simple. This Power conditioner does just what it should and lights up your rack gear well too.

                              The only thing that I think would improve the design of this power conditioner would be to have led rather than tungsten light bulbs. The bulbs can get a bit warm and are suseptable to breakage.

                                  I installed two of these in an equipment rack. The lights on the front are handy, but somewhat dim. The outlet on the front is great. It'd be nice if the power switch was lit.
