SnapAV Revolutionizes Power Products Category with WATTBOX Line; Unique 2-Piece Conditioner Separates Power Unit from Display for Unparalleled Mounting Options
The WATTBOX models are designed to simplify the process of mounting electrical outlets in equipment racks, structured wiring cans and behind TVs.
August 20th, 2012
Charlotte, NC - SnapAV's WATTBOX 600 Series Power Conditioner SnapAV, a manufacturer and exclusive source of more than 1,000 A/V solutions for the residential and commercial channels, today announced the launch of its WATTBOX™ rack mount and standalone power surge / conditioners and power strips. Replacing and expanding upon the company's Episode® power line, the WATTBOX models are designed to simplify the process of mounting electrical outlets in equipment racks, structured wiring cans and behind TVs. This is achieved via rugged all-metal chassis designs that are more compact, yet yield greater spacing between outlets, and rack models that can be angled and recessed - some with optional display faceplates. The all-new metal chassis products range from $59.95 to $489.95 MSRP depending on model and features.
600 Series 2-piece Rack-Mountable Power Conditioner
A prime example of SnapAV's design philosophy for the line is the WATTBOX 600 Series 2-piece Rack-Mountable Power Conditioner. Eliminating the common struggle of reaching the electrical outlets within the rack, the 600 Series power unit can be mounted anywhere in the rack including recessed and angled up or down. The 1 RU face plate (displays voltage and current meters and incorporates dual USB charging ports) is simply connected to the outlet bank by an RJ45 cable and separate power cable.
Integrated into the 600 Series is the latest in power conditioning and surge protection technologies including sequenced outlets, isolated filter banks, fireproof MOVs, noise filtration and Safe Voltage protection (for brown-outs).
The 600 Series 12-outlet Sequencing Power Conditioner with optional face plate retails for $489.95.
"Some dealers want the outlet bank at the top of the rack, some want it at the bottom, some want it flush, and some prefer it slightly recessed for wire management," says SnapAV Senior Vice President Adam Levy. "With WATTBOX, dealers can have it any way they want it. With the unique 2-piece design, they can even add a display for the front of the rack without making a compromise. It is the kind of design that can only come from really listening carefully to dealer's needs."
All WATTBOX products are backed by UL Certification and Connected Equipment Warranties.
Later this quarter, SnapAV plans to add IP-addressable products to the WATTBOX line.
