Advanced PowerStrips reduce the amount of wasted standby power and active power used by TV and desktop PC electronics and provide protection from damaging electrical surges. Plug-load is one of the fastest growing categories of power consumption globally with more and more devices being plugged into power receptacles.
Tier 1 Advanced PowerStrips
A Tier 1 Advanced Powerstrip provides premium quality surge protection and reduces the amount of standby power consumed by electronics. A Tier 1 APS eliminates standby power losses by shutting off power to peripheral devices such as a DVD player or printer when a primary control device such as a TV or Desktop PC is turned off.
A Tier 2 Advanced Powerstrip provides premium quality surge protection and reduces the amount active and standby power wasted by home AV electronics. A Tier 2 APS maximises energy savings by reducing the amount of Active & Standby Power wasted by home AV systems saving energy and money.
A sophisticated sensor monitors user engagement with the AV system, detecting infrared remote control activity and motion. If no activity or motion is detected for a period of time, the Tier 2 APS powers down the TV and electronics plugged into the switched outlets, thereby reducing power waste.
