APC J15 overview

  • 1Description

The APC J15 12 Outlet Power Conditioner with Battery Backup offers excellent value protection for home theater systems. Surge protected outlets keep all components safe from damaging surges, spikes and even lightning. Noise filter banks reduce electromagnetic and radio frequency interference that can harm picture and sound quality. Automatic Voltage Regulation (AVR) keeps voltage levels steady to ensure safe operation during low and high voltage conditions. Battery backup power keeps the home theater on, protects expensive TV bulbs and saves recordings stored on a DVR when the power goes out.

The J15 provides battery backup power to maintain uninterrupted power for the home theater in the event of a power blackout. Battery backup power not only prevents interruptions in your entertainment, it also prevents lost pre-sets, lost information stored on a Digital Video Recorder (DVR), damaged hard drives, and premature projector bulb wear and tear.

Sequenced turn-on and off ensures that connected equipment is powered-up/down in the proper order and with the right amount of delay between the stages. It allows you to program a delay into the sequence between 0 and 10 seconds. This feature helps to eliminate any "popping" sounds coming from speakers when turning on the system. This delay feature also eliminates transients that can affect connected components, e.g. digital projectors.

Surge Protection
The J15 provides guaranteed protection against damaging surges, spikes and even lightning. The unit not only provides protection from surges traveling over AC power lines, but also protects against surges traveling over system data lines including COAX, Ethernet and telephone lines.
Automatic Voltage Regulation (AVR)
The J15 provides AVR which is engaged to correct low and high voltage conditions. In doing so, all equipment connected to the unit are protected against these undesired voltage fluctuations, thus, prolonging the life of the equipment. Low voltage conditions can also negatively impact video quality.
Isolated Noise Filter Banks (INFB)
The J150 provides INFB technology to eliminate electromagnetic and RF interference that can negatively impact sound and video quality. Each filter bank is electrically isolated from each other to prevent noise generated by one component from polluting other connected components.

AC-Powered Outlets
The outlets are arranged according to the type of filtering protection provided for a given application. They are split up into the following groups: Digital filter outlets, video filter outlets, analog filter outlets, and high current filter outlets.
DC Trigger Mini-Jack
When connected to a component acting as a DC trigger, that component controls turn on/off of the "delayed" outlet banks. The J15 also allows that DC signal to pass through to another connected component. The maximum input voltage for the DC Trigger is 30VDC.
LCD Display and Unit Customization
Conveys information about unit and power status. It is also used to display information when making settings changes to the unit.
Removable Support Feet
Feet can be unscrewed and removed to save space when rack mounting.

    APC J15 reviews

    J15 Home Theater Power Conditioner & Battery Backup - Black is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 5.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Must Have! Living in Oklahoma, we have constant power bumps that causes problems for electronics. I originally used an expensive voltage stablizer from another company that did okay with the occasional power surge or sag, but did nothing when the power dissappeared for a second or two. I decided to try one of these APC J15 units on my master bedroom system first, and it worked so well, I bought a second for the living room system. The unit looks and feels very well made with plenty of AC outlets. Highly recommend!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from J15AVblk I use the J15 to power my 46 LCD, pioneer elite receiver, xbox, playstation, nintendo wii, HD sat box and a sony blu-ray player. It seems be well built and works well. In my opinion the front panel would look a little better if apc would have used chrome paint instead of silver, but that is just personal preference. I also would have liked to have an amp draw meter along with the volts but i can live without it. All and all it is a pretty nice machine for the money and I would recommend to someone.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Product from APC I was getting several spikes a week causing my home theater system to shut down and then come back on - then the 15 minute wait for DirecTV receiver to reboot. The system was connected to a Monster power center, but had no battery backup. This APC has solved that problem - no more shutdowns with the battery backup. The only downfall is that this thing is a monster in weight and size. Measure your openings carefully, I had to cut out the back of my entertainment center to get the depth I needed.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from APC Man 4 Life For over 5 years, the conditioner and all equipment attached are running beautifully. Nice to know everything connected has a stepped sine wave whether on AC or battery and automatic voltage trim to keep everybody happy. Ample filtered protection for all of your ac needs, with labels to keep it all strategically placed and protected, 3 coax sources, Ethernet (RJ45), telephone/data (RJ11) and DC Trigger. Also has a Data connection to monitor its operation on your computer with PowerChute software. Maintenance and battery replacement are a snap with the easily removable front panel. The front display offers brightness options and makes set-up a breeze, placing system status and control where you need it. Mine runs a high end AV system; Panasonics' former flagship Plasma TV, 2 Panasonic DMP-BDT-500 DVD units, Panasonic PV-8451 VCR (yeah, I still have one), Yamaha Aventage AV control, Definitive Technology Pro Subwoofer, CISCO 4742HDC converter and a CISCO WRVS 4400N router. Everything in my home of importance and all in my office are protected with APC for life.
