Panamax's MX5102 Hybrid Power Management System Wins Audioholics Consumer Excellence Award

Panamax today announced that its MX5102 hybrid UPS/power management unit was recognized with a 2009 Audioholics Consumer Excellence (CE) Award.

PETALUMA, Calif. - March 17, 2010 - Panamax today announced that its MX5102 hybrid UPS/power management unit was recognized with a 2009 Audioholics Consumer Excellence (CE) Award. For home theater systems, the MX5102 is Panamax's first hybrid product to combine power management features such as linear filtration and surge protection with battery backup, all in a single unit.


The prestigious Audioholics CE Awards program recognizes the most advanced and forward -thinking products in crucial CE categories submitted for consideration by the industry's leading manufacturers. Awards are given to products that exceed industry norms and deliver consistent, excellent results to consumers, custom installers, and retailers alike.

"The Audioholics CE Awards reward products that advance the consumer electronics industry, so it is a great honor to have the innovation behind our MX5102 recognized," said Dave Keller, senior vice president of sales and marketing for Panamax/Furman. "Not only does the hybrid unit protect sensitive components and optimize their performance for a stunning home theater experience, it reduces replacement costs for equipment with sensitive shut -down sequences, such as costly DLP projector bulbs."

Available as a standalone product or as part of a rackmount solution, the hybrid MX5102's front panel offers an LCD status display that shows the incoming line voltage, as well as battery run time remaining in case of a temporary power failure. The unit provides 600VA UPS functionality via two of its 10 outlets, while still providing common power management features such as high -current outlets and 12V triggering to the switched outlet banks.

The MX5102 is available now at an MSRP of $649.95.
