Eliminate Phantom Loads
Each power adapter and glowing LED in your home or office represents a potential "phantom load"—power wasted by a device when it isn't being used, even when it appears to be turned off, like speakers and DVD players. ECO-Surge eliminates phantom loads by automatically turning off special energy-saving outlets when you turn off the device connected to the "Master" outlet. The energy-saving outlets disconnect phantom loads from any source of electricity, making it impossible for them to waste energy. Other outlets stay on to support devices that operate 24x7, such as DVRs.
How the Energy-Saving Feature Works
ECO-Surge detects when you turn off the device connected to the "Master" outlet—typically a computer or television—then turns off the "Power Save" outlets. Turning off the Power Save outlets prevents any phantom loads connected to those outlets from wasting electricity, such as DVD players, gaming consoles and speakers. The "Always On" outlets remain powered to support devices like DVRs, cable/satellite boxes, broadband modems and wireless routers. When you turn on the Master device, the Power Save outlets also turn on and your entire system is ready to use. The ECO-Surge wattage switch ensures reliable operation whether you're using a higher-wattage Master device (such as a television, desktop computer or full-size laptop) or a lower-wattage Master device (such as a laptop). Simply flip the switch to match your device.
Remote Control Capability
The AV10IRG features an infrared receiver on the front of the unit that receives signals from any infrared remote, allowing you to power on components that are plugged into the ECO "Power Save" outlets.
Protection on Multiple Connections
In addition to AC line protection, the AV10IRG includes a set of RJ45 jacks to prevent surge damage on phone or network connections (6-ft. network cable included) and three sets of gold Type F coax jacks to prevent surges from damaging your cable/satellite equipment (6-ft. coax cable included).
Ultimate Peace of Mind
The AV10IRG comes with $250,000 Ultimate Lifetime Insurance coverage for connected equipment—guaranteed lifetime protection against damage due to surges, including direct lightning strikes (USA/Canada only). Ultimate Lifetime Insurance coverage begins the moment you purchase your Tripp Lite surge protector—no forms to fill out or send in. Additionally, all Tripp Lite surge protectors are backed by a lifetime product warranty.
