APC H15 Home Theater Power Conditioner
Key Features
  • Includes Surge Protector (1.5kVA/15A)
  • 12 Outlets
  • 2 Coax Pairs (1 with Splitter)
  • Phone Line Protection
The APC H15 Power Conditioner will protect your high performance audio and video (A/V) system from damaging power surges, spikes and lightning. Protection is guaranteed. Isolated noise filter banks will eliminate EMI/RFI as a source of audio and video signal degradation. Data-line surge protection jacks will stop surges traveling over phone and modem or DSL lines. Digital Satellite System, Cable Modem, and CATV Coaxial Cable lines are equally protected.

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 12 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 H15 provides a high level of surge protection for the voltage going into the unit, and additionally, surge protected coax/radio frequency (RF) connectors are protected against surges traveling over coaxial lines to protect your digital satellite system (DSS), CATV box, or cable modem. The telephone line surge protection provides a protected splitter to allow output to a telephone, modem, DSL, fax, DVR, DSS system, set-top internet service provider (such as WebTV), or pay-per-view cable TV function.

Automatic Voltage Regulation (AVR)

The H15 is unique in that it provides AVR, which is engaged to correct low and high voltage conditions. In doing so, all equipment connected to the H15 are protected against these undesired voltage fluctuations, thus, prolonging the life of the equipment.

Isolated Noise Filter Banks (INFB)

The H15 provides INFB technology to eliminate electromagnetic and RF interference that can negatively impact sound and video quality.

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 H15 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

The LCD displays important information including voltage in (line voltage) and voltage out, frequency, and load. Additionally, the LCD is used to program features such as the delay or dimmer settings.

Removable Support Feet

Feet can be unscrewed and removed to save space when rack mounting.

I simply love this latest addition to our home theater system. It really lets you know what's going on with current not too mention looks good. We had cheaper surge protectors, but decided to upgrade since our investment is growing. Only one thing I might add is make sure your power amp is compatible with it. We have an Emotiva XPA5 and it didn't like being plugged into it. I think because the amp has its own protection system.

Good Unit

The H15 replaced a J15 that was 11 years old and no longer was working. Replaced with the H15 as did not need a battery backup. Only issue so far with the H15 is the CATV spitter does not work with our cable company. Apparently some cable providers either do not have strong enough of a signal to pass thru the splitter, or prevent users from using a splitter. Using the SAT connection does work. LED's on front panel are bright, but can be dimmed. Power line filtering has three voltage adjustment levels so if your electric provider has line issues you can set the unit for the level you want to protect the attached equipment. Contacted APC support about the CATV connection issue. They understood the problem and recommended the solution. This unit is a good value and would recommend it.

Using this to protect some very sensitive older computer hardware in a neighborhood with a flaky, old power grid, that is, random power outages at any time of day or night. I don't actually need a UPS, just something that will mitigate brown outs, surges, off-on cycling, etc.

Voltage Regulation That works

We have been recommending/using APC H10 and H-15s in our Home Theater installations since 2008. Zero problems and almost new service calls do to stalled Equipment. We have had the same unit in our showroom for over 10 years and it has been fantastic. The main reason people have problems with there AV equipment, Sat boxes, Cable boxes, Routers; is do to voltage problems that cause the CPU to hang requiring a reset / power cycle. The H-10 and H-15 have saved us many service calls im sure. Some integrators would probably like more service calls for extra sales opportunities. We just want satisfied customers.

Glad I bought

A must have for all your A/V Equipment

The is the core backbone device for my A/V rack... and the Model H15 has not failed me. In storms, one can hear a click and watch the lights to see it in action as it protects my equipment from voltage variations. I picked this device up Christmas of 2005. I noticed immediately that my TV was much happier with the clean supply of electricity. Fast forward to 2021, and the display panel is now flickering and a useless... but, the device itself is still doing it's job. I was looking at possibly replacing it... and, taken aback that this device is still sold today... and still has the same exact owners manual (even same copywrite date of 2005) of my device. Mine is silver, like the picture on the manual. But, otherwise, identical. If I could change one thing, it would be to have a battery that would power the A/V devices, if even just for a few minutes. This is because sometimes power goes out for seconds... as the power company auto fails over to backup systems. It'd be nice to not have the Satellite / DVR system not try and hunt for a single and re-setup for such frequent and short outages. BUT - those systems cost a lot more money.

I have a number of these units, one on a living room video system and two on my mhome theater to handle the wattage of the Audio amps. We are in a lightning prone area and these units provide excellent protection and power conditioning . Solid well built units.

question

How can I fix the yellow light situation?
Asked by: Robert B.
I'm assuming you bought this item because you have less than clean power in your house. When the yellow light is on it means your voltage is offspec (high or low depending on which light) and the unit is correcting it. If you want to know why the power in your house is having issues, I think your best bet is to get in touch with a good electrician and have them come out and assess the situation.
