excellent surge protection
I live in a remote rural location with very very very bad power. I have lost thousands of dollars worth ($20 to $25 thousand dollars in 10 years) due to severe surges which are actually called "faults" becaue the duration of the surge is very long. Normal protectors do nothing and can actually ba a fire hazard. One started a fire on my desk that would have burned the house down if I was not there when the power was restored. The panamax M_EX series uses a protection method that can handle these extreme, long duration, high voltage events. It disconnects the supply before damage to the internal transient protection or the connected hardware can occur. I have literally spent years hoping for such a device and it is finally available. I spoke to the engineer who designed the system and was convinced. I tested them myself and they do exactly what they are advertised as doing. As far as I can tell, this is the best surge protection available and is extremely reasonably priced especailly with the pricing available at Buy.com. I am a very happy customer. I bought 11 of them and am going to buy some more. The PM series does not have this protection so choose wisely if you have really severe overvoltage problems. The M_EX series also protects against low voltage which is another problem here in the winter when lines go down and the voltage drops to around 55 to 60 volts. This can cause damage to some devices if there is enough current availabel to run them. Motors can stall and overheat but the Panamax will disconnect the power so no damage can occur.
