SurgeX Defender Series Equips All Size Installations with Power Protection

Knightdale, NC – January 31, 2019 – AMETEK Electronic Systems Protection (ESP), the leader in advanced power protection solutions, today announces additions to the SurgeX Defender Series line. With models suited to provide installations globally with cost-effective, comprehensive power protection and conditioning to increase uptime and ensure connected equipment functions properly.

SurgeX Defender Series includes the SX-DS1011i, a 10 amp / 230 volt plug configuration with 11 IEC outlets, and the SX-DS-1611i with a 16 amp / 230 volt plug configuration with 11 IEC outlets. Designed with patented Multi-Stage surge suppression technology, the Defender Series line protects AV equipment from electrical transients that can cause harmful system disruptions with robust three-stage protection and advanced filtration that virtually eliminates normal and common mode electrical noise interference that can cause frequent reboots and downtime.

A proper power foundation is fundamental for AV system installations of all kinds, and Defender Series was designed to bring SurgeX’s high quality power protection to smaller, cost-conscious projects. Ideal for education, security, or house of worship environments where budgets are limited, the SX-DS-1011i and SX-DS-1611i models provide comprehensive power protection and conditioning in a compact, shallow, and rack mountable form factor, with each model at 8.5-inches/22 centimeters deep taking up only 1U of rack space.

“The Defender Series is a new solution for dealers to protect their installation, no matter the size or budget, and we’ve expanded with these new models that offer the same benefits globally,” said Kent Dunn, manager, business development for AMETEK Electronic Systems Protection. “With both surge protection and power conditioning, Defender Series is easily deployed to safeguard either standalone devices or an entire rack from the harmful effects of surge energy.”

AMETEK ESP’s SurgeX SX-DS-1011i and SX-DS-1611i will ship globally in Q1 of 2019, and will be on display at Integrated Systems Europe from February 5 to 8, 2019 in Stand #1-F50.
