SurgeX XN120 Solution Named CEDIA Manufacturers' Excellence Award Winner

Zebulon, NC - September 29, 2010 - SurgeX, the only manufacturer of AC surge eliminating power conditioning products, is proud to announce that its XN120 has been awarded the prestigious CEDIA Manufacturers' Excellence Award for Best New Product. The XN120 is the perfect protection solution for multi -circuit residential AV systems where space is at a premium. This compact 120 Volt / 80 Amp unit is hardwired as a subpanel at the service panel or the equipment room and is designed to provide failsafe protection required for multiple circuit applications.

Each year the CEDIA Best New Product competition seeks to recognize outstanding excellence in the latest technology; the best of the best in the residential electronic systems industry. On Saturday, September 25th, CEDIA hosted its annual awards banquet to recognize the manufacturers, residential systems contractors, and CEDIA volunteers for their achievements and contributions to the association. The Manufacturers' Excellence Award is presented to the top ten products that embody true technological advancements that have been designed specifically to help systems contractors succeed in their businesses.

"We are honored to receive the CEDIA Manufacturers' Excellence Award for the XN120," stated Rick Komendera, Vice President of Sales for SurgeX. "This year marked our introduction into the CEDIA channel, and to be recognized by the CEDIA community has been major coup for SurgeX. We are very excited to bring the XN120 along with our full surge elimination product line to the residential channel and offer integrators a full solution for their power protection needs."

Engineered with professional grade Advanced Series Mode® Surge Elimination Technology and Impedance Tolerant® EMI/RFI noise filtering, the XN120 is the only NEMA enclosure protection product in the market that eliminates surges and transients that can degrade AV system performance and shorten service life. The XN120 frees up valuable rack space and eliminates the need for individual powerline conditioners. In most installations, there are flat panel TVs located in each room that, until now, have needed to be protected separately. But, with the XN120, there is no need to protect each individual television with a power line conditioner at every site. When the TVs are connected to a single circuit and fed through the XN120, the SurgeX unit will protect each television on that circuit. The XN120 eliminates the need for in wall extension cords, or individual units to install and maintain. Just one XN120 circuit will protect an average of eight TV panels. In addition, every outlet powered by the XN120 is protected even though there is no power conditioner at the rack.

The XN120 was also selected as a recipient of the Residential Systems magazine's Resi award as well as CustomRetailer's Exc!te Award. Residential Systems' Resi Awards honor the most innovative residential electronics products' industrial design. An expert panel of dealers and industrial design professionals judge the entries based on the external aesthetics, ergonomics, and manufacturability. Each year, CustomRetailer invites nominations of products that stand out for being innovative, high -performing and solutions -oriented for the custom installation professional. The winners must stand out as high -impact products that are manufactured specifically to meet the unique challenges custom installers must face every day on the job. These products are honored because they have a significant impact on the industry, felt in the installers' productivity, dealers' profitability and the clients' satisfaction.

SurgeX has recently extended its best in class warranty from ten to now an industry leading eleven year warranty.
