APC P8VT3 overview

  • 1Description

The black P8VT3 SurgeArrest 8-Outlet Surge Protector from APC allows you to power up to 8 electronic devices using a single wall outlet. The power strip features powerful surge protection, protecting against surges of up to 3020 joules in strength.

The power strip features a phone line splitter, which allows you to use two pieces of equipment at once, such as a modem and a phone. 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" surges traveling through data lines, as they can be as damaging to your equipment as surges traveling over power lines. It thus provides protection that your equipment needs.

Phone Line Splitter
Allows use of two pieces of equipment at once, such as a modem and a phone.
Resettable Circuit Breaker
Easy recovery from overloads; no need to replace a fuse.
Receptacle Shock Safety Shutters
Shutters protect users from accidental contact with unused outlets.
Fail-Safe Mode
Many surge suppressors continue to let power through even after their circuits have been damaged, leaving your equipment exposed to future surges. However, SurgeArrest is fail-safe, which means that once the circuit of an APC SurgeArrest has been compromised, the unit disconnects the equipment from the power supply, ensuring that no damaging surges reach your 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" surges traveling through data lines, since they can be as damaging to your equipment as surges traveling over power lines.
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.
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.
Transformer Block Spacing
Connect bulky transformer block plugs without covering up other outlets.
Noise Filtering
Attenuates EMI/RFI line noise that can cause data errors and keyboard lockups, ensuring better performance of protected equipment.
Right Angle Plug
Right angle plug allows for equipment and furniture to be placed closer to the wall than with a standard power cord. It also reduces cord stress.
180° Rotating Cord Retainer
A 180° rotating cord with strain relief offers flexibility in positioning the SurgeArrest, and in routing the power cord.
Building Wiring Fault Indicator
Informs users of potentially dangerous wiring problems in the wall circuit.
Adjustable Cable Management
Keeps cords and cables neat and organized.
Lightning and Surge Protection
Prevents damage to your equipment from power surges and spikes.
IEEE Let-Through Ratings and Regulatory Agency Compliance
Stringent testing ensures that APC's surge protectors will safeguard your equipment and data from potentially damaging surges and spikes.
Overload Indicator
This indicator illuminates when connected equipment draw more power than the unit's capacity. To remedy the condition, unplug less vital equipment.

    APC P8VT3 reviews

    P8VT3 SurgeArrest 8-Outlet Surge Protector (Black) is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 8.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A trusted name in surge protection One doesn't know how many electrical surges such a device actually intercepts, but I'm still using an APC Back-UPS LS 500 on my computer that was purchased ten years ago, and have had no problems. The P8VT3 offers connectivity for coaxial cable, which is desirable for me. I have two of these in use: one for a TV, soundbar and audio equipment, and the other for a TV and soundbar. It's cheap insurance against costly damage due to an electrical surge.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from whats not to like The brand has built good will with me. They take me back to the 90s. I did find one with more joules protection, but went with this one. This does give me more of an indication of what's wrong with the outlet, reverse polarity, etc. good thing to have if I use it in another person's house. Also, it has a built in child/sneeze guard on the outlets. Love the cable and (I guess some people still use a fax line) telephone line protectors. I don't like that the cord is limited to a 360 flat swivel, but I know that's designed to keep me from bending the cable and weakening the conductivity safety. Sort of disappointed that there wasn't an additional outlet or two, but that would invite drawing in an imprudent amount of electricity to one strip over what most are probably hooking up to non-heavy duty extension chords or adapters. Wish it came in another color (yeah, we techs do like to make a statement). Never know if it works til the lightning strikes. If it doesn't work, at least I know they have equity going back to the 90s to back up their product damage warranty.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product I've purchased several different models of APC's SurgeArrest, and they always make me happy. They look good, they work well, easy to understand, and protect my expensive equipment. Simply the best for the money!
    Date published: 2015-04-26
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from For a basic surge unit this is fully featured! For a basic home Surge Protector this unit is full of features. Protects 8 outlets with 4 of them spaced further apart for larger plugs. Has phone splitter, coax, and a swivel cord. These are great!
