APC PRO8T2 overview

  • 1Description

With a variety of protection features, the SurgeArrest Home/Office Professional Surge Protector from APC is designed to protect your connected appliances against catastrophic events such as lightning strikes and faulty wiring. The surge protector offers an 1120 Joule surge energy rating and RJ-11 modem data line protection. In addition to protection of electrical appliances, this surge protector also protects data devices connected to the RJ-11 ports against "back door" surges. The SurgeArrest also features safety shutters, transformer block spacing on 3 outlets, adjustable cable management, and a 180-degree rotating cord retainer.

The SurgeArrest professional surge protector offers a 120 volt nominal input voltage with a 50/60 Hz input frequency and eight NEMA 5-15R input connections.

Noise Filtering
Attenuates EMI/RFI line noise that can cause data errors and keyboard lockups, ensuring better performance of protected equipment.
Data-Line Protection
Protection of data lines (Ethernet, Coaxial and Phone lines) ensures complete protection of your equipment from surges. It is very important to protect your equipment from "back door" electric surges traveling through data lines, as they can be as damaging to your equipment as surges traveling over power lines.
IEEE Let-Through Ratings
APC surge protectors undergo stringent testing by IEEE, and are awarded "let-through ratings," which indicate the maximum voltage level that can possibly reach your equipment after a surge or voltage spike has passed through a surge protector. Lower IEEE let-through ratings indicate better protection and performance.

The APC Essential SurgeArrest series offers optimal performance with a let-through rating of less than 330V for North American products, and a rating of less than 15% for products sold worldwide. All APC products comply with local agency safety requirements, including UL in North America and CE/Kema/Gost/C-tick/A-Tick/Telepermit in their respective regions.
Lightning and Surge Protection
To prevent damage to your equipment from electric power surges and spikes.
Overload Indicator
Indicator illuminates when connected equipment draws more power than unit's capacity. To remedy the condition, unplug less vital equipment.
Fail Safe Mode
Most other surge suppressors continue to let power through even after their circuits have been damaged, leaving your equipment exposed to future surges. With APC's SurgeArrest fail safe, once the circuit of an APC SurgeArrest has been compromised, the unit disconnects equipment from the power supply ensuring that no damaging surges reach your equipment.
Catastrophic Event Protection
SurgeArrest components such as MOVs and Thermal fuse ensure instantaneous reaction to lightning strikes and wiring faults. If the surge components are damaged due to power spike or over voltage, excess power cannot reach your equipment. Unlike the APC SurgeArrest products, most surge suppressors continue to let power through even after circuits have been damaged, leaving your equipment exposed to other damaging surges.
Replaceable Shock Safety Shutters
Shutters protect users from accidental contact with unused outlets.
Building Wiring Fault Indicator
This LED informs users of potentially dangerous wiring problems in the wall circuit.
Protection Working Indicator
SurgeArrest will warn you if its circuitry has been damaged by heavy strike or power line surge and it is unable to provide 100% protection. If still under warranty, APC will then replace your damaged SurgeArrest free of charge.
Transformer Block Spacing
Connect bulky transformer block plugs without covering up other outlets.
Adjustable Cable Management
Keeps cords and cables neat and organized.
Phone Line Splitter
Allows use of two pieces of equipment at once, such as a modem and phone.
180-Degree Rotating Cord Retainer
A 180-degree rotating cord with strain relief offers flexibility in positioning the SurgeArrest, and in routing the power cord.

    APC PRO8T2 reviews

    SurgeArrest Home/Office Professional Surge Protector (Beige) is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 41.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from A Perfect Surge Arrest Multi-Strip This appears to be a perfect design for a wall or desk mounted computer or stereo multi extension with surge protection. Some of my favourite features are the angled, wide base for 3 transformer chargers, the on/off quick switch with lock and the strong wall mounting provisions- made for a #8 pan head screw of suitable length to hit a beam on your wall. One item i would like to see is a mounting template added to the cardboard cover.this is mentioned in the instructions, but sadly not included. One can make their own template by tracing the mounting slots carefully and then transferring them to cardboard. The unit works quite well.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Product did it's job! Our power was knocked out several days from Hurricane Irma. As the utility company tried to restore power to the neighborhood, the power went on and off several times, lights flickered, and a transformer down the street blew. I heard a big pop from somewhere in the house and soon after detected a burning smell from the computer room. Most of the top of my PRO8T2 SurgeArrest and a 6" or so circumference around it on the bottom shelf of the computer hutch was completely black. A hole had burned through the bottom of it. However, everything that was plugged into this 10+ year old SurgeArrest still works (desktop computer, modem, printer)! I will definitely buy a replacement APC surge protector ASAP!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Protector We had a dramatic, direct lightning strike to a large tree in our back yard. The tree was large, but the bolt of lightning exploded it and threw spears of wood HUNDREDS of feet in every direction. We lost over $3000 worth of electronic equipment that was "protected" by belkin products, but the items that were plugged into our larger APC XS 1300 and the smaller APC Professional SurgeArrest, 8 outlet product were TOTALLY UNHARMED. I'm sold. I'm only purchasing APC products from now on. Thank you APC!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from SurgeProtector for Power Company Surges Works fine and has plenty of outlets. Has very small light on constantly to let you know it is on. And not too big in size, so easy to find a spot for it. It will save your electronics $$$ with all the unexpected power surges or lightning storms...Just recently we had a power blackout and when the power came on it ruined many routers, etc... that the neighbors did not have plugged into a surge protector. We had no damages since we had anything expensive plugged into a surge protector.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very nice, especially for MacBook power supply I like the large power button on this a lot, but what I really like is, the shape allows a MacBook power supply to rest on a solid surface. If you put this power supply on a normal power strip, it droops because of the offset weight of the unit. I also have an ASUS laptop (I need a windows environment too) and the power supply for ASUS laptop has exactly the same problem. This nice, wide surface was perfect to prevent premature arcing of the contacts.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for MAcBook users because of the wide area footprint I really like this surge protector. If you use a MacBook with the large AC adapter, it does not sit well on a typical power strip. This product gives a nice wide area to support the AC adapter. I also have an Asus laptop with a similar style power connector. I use this surge protector for both laptops and separate dual monitors. I feel this is really important because if the AC adapter is not sitting correctly in the socket, over time it will start to arc and could potentially be a fire hazard (worst case, if you never notice arcing buildup on the connector) But as much as AC adapters cost, anything to prolong the life of the adapter is a good investment. The large on/off button is also really nice to use. It's backlit and has a positive feel to it, without being clunky. Great value, I wouldn't hesitate to buy another one (bought two when I made this purchase)

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good number of outlets w/Surge protection + I liked the features, especially the number of outlets. The green light indicates viability without being overly bright. It will fasten to a wall or object via a couple of slots on back,... template provided for mounting. 4 stars only because I thought the place for the green light was larger than it needed to be,... however this area may house the surge protector and other listed features.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from everything you need Needed another Surge Arrest to replace an older APC of similar design that I moved to use for another purpose. This one works well, but I wish that it had a couple of "always on" outlets, but don't really need them for what I am using it for. One other slight complaint is that the indicator that shows the unit is "on" does not light up like the old one does. Hard to tell if it is on or off.
