Tripp Lite's New Audio/Video AV550SC Backup Power Block Wins CustomRetailer Magazine's EXC!TE Award


FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Chicago, IL (October 8, 2007) - Tripp Lite, a world -leading manufacturer of power protection equipment, is proud to announce that its new AV550SC Backup Power Block has received CustomRetailer magazine's EXC!TE Award. The custom electronics community, including retailers, installers and integrators, along with the staff at CustomRetailer, selects EXC!TE Award winners, recognizing products for outstanding design, engineering and innovativeness. The winners were honored at a celebration held during the 2007 CEDIA Expo in Denver, Colorado.

"We're thrilled that the AV550SC has received this mark of recognition from CustomRetailer," said John Wills, Tripp Lite's Audio/Video Sales Manager. "Tripp Lite took the initiative to be the first manufacturer to offer a reliable battery backup system for customers of structured wiring enclosures. With reliable battery backup, surge protection and EMI/RFI line noise filtering, the AV550SC provides a complete protection solution for audio/video distribution systems by supporting modems, routers, RF amplifiers, network interfaces and other equipment through all power problems."

The AV550SC provides the highest level of protection for telephone, Internet and coax connections within structured cabling installations found in many new homes. In the event of a power failure, the AV550SC includes an auto -restart feature that eliminates the need to perform an on -site startup. In addition, when a modem or router freeze -up occurs, the AV550SC features a one -touch, automatic recycle/reset button with sequential outlet startup (1 min. delay for router) for proper modem and router rebooting. Installers benefit from four 12V DC outputs that provide the ability to power up optional equipment.
