Tripp Lite Intros Its ECO-Surge Line

Surge suppressors feature “Master” and “Power Save” outlets that cut power to peripherals when not in use.

Tripp Lite, maker of power protection equipment, has introduced two new ECO-Surge suppressors with energy-saving outlets designed to conserve energy by eliminatingTripp Lite Intros Its ECO-Surge Line “phantom loads.”

The new 12- and 8-outlet Surge Suppressors feature a green outlet array with “Master” and “Power Save” outlets that cut power to idle peripherals when the primary device is turned off. For example, if a notebook computer is connected to the Master outlet, turning it off will also automatically cut power to peripheral devices connected to the Power Save outlets, such as monitors, printers, scanners, or desk lamps. This feature eliminates wasteful “phantom loads” that continue to consume electricity even when a device appears to be turned off.††

Tripp Lite Senior Product Manager Karenann Brow says the new environmentally friendly surge suppressors represent “an innovative g

reen outlet array” that “saves money, conserves electricity, and reduces carbon footprints” She adds, “And without sacrificing the high level of power protection that home and business users demand for their valuable equipment.”

According to Tripp Lite, features and benefits of the ECO-Surge line include:

  • Savings of up to $40 on an average annual electric bill
  • Green function that can be turned off with manual switch
  • Always-on outlets that provide continuous power
  • Selectable wattage switch for devices to be assigned as master device
  • Dataline surge protection options for computers and A/V components
  • Manufacturing done in accordance with strict RoHS environmental standards
