The new Merit-x series provides convenient, rackmountable power conditioning solutions to the value-conscious consumer. Upgrades from the previous Merit models include increased protection with a higher joule rating, increased AC noise filtration for a lower noise floor, and a more robust chassis, with wall-wart outlet spacing on the rear panel to accommodate bulky power transformers.
The series offers three new products. The M-8x provides eight filtered and protected rear-panel outlets with a front-panel convenience outlet and “Protection OK” indicator light. The M-8Lx adds pull-out light tubes (with dimmer knob) for discreet rack illumination, while the M-8Dx provides light tubes as well as a laboratory-grade front-panel digital voltmeter to monitor incoming voltage.
“We are very excited to introduce the new Merit-x series to our discriminating customers,” said Dave Keller, senior vice president of sales and marketing for Furman and Panamax. “For users who have come to rely on the technologies of our Merit series, the new products offer even greater levels of protection and filtration for sensitive components.”
The new Merit-x series will be available in March at an SRP of $70 for the M-8x, $110 for the M-8Lx, and $150 for the M-8Dx.
