APC Power-Saving SurgeArrest P7GT Power Strip


APC SurgeArrest P7GT Power Strip


APC, a long time empire of battery backups and surge protection, releases a brand new idea in the realm of power strips - a power strip that knows when your computer is turned off. This allows you to save money on your electric bill since a scanner, printer, or monitor won't be in use. APC was generous enough to send us the Power-Saving SurgeArrest Essential P7GT for testing. Let's check it out!


APC's Take:

"The Power-Saving SurgeArrest not only safeguards your equipment from damaging power transients, it also helps lower your electric bill. "Master/Controlled" outlets are designed to detect when your computer is asleep where it then automatically powers "off" connected peripherals to prevent wasteful power consumption."


Features (from :

Building Wiring Fault Indicator
This LED informs users of potentially dangerous wiring problems in the wall circuit.
Noise Filtering
Surge Protector attenuates EMI/RFI line noise that can cause data errors and keyboard lockups, ensuring better performance of protected equipment.
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.
Resettable circuit breaker
Easy recovery from overloads; no need to replace a fuse.
Right Angle Plug
Plug angle allows for equipment and furniture to be placed closer to the wall than with a standard power cord. Reduces cord stress too.
