Panamax's M4 -EX Power Management Solution Selected by UV Pure Technologies for Shipment With Hallett® and Upstream® Water Purification Systems

Panamax, a world-leading provider of AC power management solutions, today announced that UV Pure Technologies Inc. has begun shipping a Panamax M4-EX power management unit with each of its Hallett and Upstream water purification systems.

PETALUMA, Calif. - June 3, 2008 - Panamax, a world -leading provider of AC power management solutions, today announced that UV Pure Technologies Inc. has begun shipping a Panamax M4 -EX power management unit with each of its Hallett and Upstream water purification systems for protection against power spikes and brownouts.


UV Pure systems are designed to be effective in the broadest range of water conditions and operate within normal power grid specifications worldwide. However, power spikes and brownouts are a common occurrence in all countries. As a result, line voltages may fluctuate outside the systems' operating specifications, interrupting water treatment.

In an effort to safeguard its water purification systems from power grid fluctuations, UV Pure chose to ship Panamax's M4 -EX with every Hallett and Upstream system. The M4 -EX has been successfully tested with UV Pure's 120 -V North American products. The tests demonstrated that the systems survived brownouts as low as 90 V and transient voltage spikes of up to 6,000 V and 3,000 A.

The M4 -EX provides protection for up to four devices, so that in addition to a UV Pure system, up to three other devices can be protected. It accepts add -on signal line modules to accommodate system expansion, and features Panamax's exclusive Protect or Disconnect™ circuitry, which completely removes the AC power from connected equipment in the event of a catastrophic surge.
"UV Pure is an innovative leader in the water purification industry, and we feel that the technology of our M4 -EX power management solution provides the perfect complement to their advanced systems," said Bill Pollock, president of Panamax and Furman. "With the M4 -EX in place, UV Pure systems are not only protected from surges and brownouts, but they will restart automatically. For customers, this guarantees the safest water at all times, regardless of voltage conditions, and reliable operation that they can depend on."

"Our mission is to provide pure, safe water. Always," said Rick VanSant, president and CEO of UV Pure Technologies. "That is why we have decided to include the M4 -EX in every Hallett and Upstream system we ship. We believe our products have the most advanced UV disinfection technology available. Shipping the leading power management equipment with our systems will enhance that position, add value for our customers, and help ensure robust, reliable operation."

The M4 -EX began shipping with UV Pure's Hallett and Upstream water purification systems May 1, 2008.
