Monster Empowered PowerCenter EP 2450 with IR Control and Distribution and Clean Power Stage 2 7 Surge-Protected, Color-Coded Outlets (MP EP IR 2450) (Discontinued by Manufacturer) Description
Product Description The EP IR 2450 Empowered IR PowerCenter is a bold combination of design, advanced engineering, and convenient functionality. This new PowerCenter design delivers the advanced protection and performance that home theater enthusiasts expect while providing the ultimate in remote control convenience.First and foremost, EP IR 2450 provides advanced power conditioning and surge protection for high definition home theaters. It features new HD Clean Power filters specifically engineered to get maximum sound and picture performance from todayÂ¿s high definition digital home theater components. In addition, patented T2 and Tri-Mode surge protection technologies protect connected equipment from power surges, spikes and dips.However, the EPIR 2450 Empowered IR PowerCenter is more than just an ordinary PowerCenter. The ‘Empowered’ IR technology in the EP IR 2450 lets you send remote control commands to all of their home theater components through their PowerCenter via IR emitter cables. This gives you a new level of remote control precision and reliability that not only widens the arc of their remote controls, but also extends remote control reach even behind solid wood or metal AV cabinets where remote signals would typically be blocked.Even better, there’s an included external IR receiver that lets you keep all of your AV components and the PowerCenter completely out of sight for an elegant, clean home theater look that lets the dÃ©cor speak for itself. Now you don’t have to look at distracting AV components and blinking lights when you’re watching a movie or just relaxing.The Empowered IR 2450 PowerCenter wraps all this advanced functionality in an ultra-sleek silver chassis with a new ‘butterfly’ style faceplate design. From the Manufacturer From the Manufacturer Clean Up Your AC Power for Better Picture and Sound It’s a fact: ‘dirty’ AC power can impair your home theater experience. The power coming through AC outlets is full of interference and line disturbances that cause hum, buzz and static, degrading your home theater’s audio and video performance. In addition, electronic appliances, cell phones and even home theater components all generate electronic noise that further affects your home theater sound and picture. The detrimental effects of dirty AC power cannot be removed by ordinary surge protectors. The Monster Power Empowered PowerCenter EP IR 2450 features patented Clean Power Stage 2, T2 automatic disconnect/reconnect circuitry, Tri-Mode protection circuitry, high surge absorption capacity and coaxial, network and phone connections. The IR technology in the EP IR 2450 lets you send remote control commands to all of your home theater components. Even better, there’s an included external IR receiver that lets you keep all of your A/V components and the EP IR 2450 completely out of sight. A bold combination of design, advanced engineering and convenient functionality, the EP IR 2450 delivers the advanced protection and performance that home theater enthusiasts expect while providing the ultimate in remote control convenience. Defend your A/V system on all fronts Elegant Design, Advanced Engineering, Convenient Functionality Clean Power Maintains Optimum Home Theater Performance Monster Clean Power performs two tasks that are vital to maintaining home theater performance: noise filtration and noise isolation. The higher the Clean Power stage number (1-5), the more sophisticated and advanced the filters are that reject noise generated on the AC power line. In addition, the higher the Clean Power stage number, the more isolation that exists between connected equipment for maximum rejection of component-generated noise. Clean Power Stage 2 circuitry filters AC power line noise and reduces noise generated by your connected equipment. Featuring two ultra-advanced, isolated filters, plus an ultra-high current audio filter, the EP IR 2450 delivers high quality sound and picture that are free from performance-damaging interference. Clean power, clean picture High Surge Absorption Capacity for High Safety Sensitive electronics in your home theater components can be easily damaged by the surges, dips and spikes common to today’s AC power. The problem is even worse if you live in an area plagued by lightning or power blackouts. Extremely high voltages can travel through power lines, seriously damaging or even destroying your components. The EP IR 2450 features a high surge absorption capacity of over 6420 joules for excellent power protection. Control all your A/V components through a single device Exclusive T2 Technology The EP IR 2450 features exclusive T2 technology. T2 is an active electronic microprocessor-controlled circuit that sits in front of surge protection circuitry. T2 monitors the line, neutral and ground lines and automatically disconnects the EP IR 2450 from the AC power line when a long duration low-voltage sag or high-voltage swell occurs (continuous voltage below 80Vrms or above 132Vrms). Unlike ordinary power management devices, T2 will shut down your EP IR 2450 before the MOVs (Metal Oxide Varistors) and thermal fuses sense an overload condition and sacrifice themselves to protect your connected components. This will extend the EP IR 2450âs life, while providing the system protection you need. When the voltage sags or swells to these potentially damaging levels, rapid response T2 auto-disconnect protection circuitry shuts down the EP IR 2450 for 15 seconds. When the under-voltage or over-voltage condition returns to normal, T2 reconnects the unit to full operation after 15 seconds. If the fault condition does not clear, the T2 comparator circuit keeps the unit shut down. Tri-Mode Sounds the Alarm Patented Tri-Mode technology protects all three power lines (line, neutral and ground) via relays, MOVs and thermal fuses. During electrical surges and spikes, the relays automatically disconnect both the line and neutral power lines and sound an alarm. Only Tri-Mode disconnects both power lines for a higher level of protection. More Than Just an Ordinary Power Conditioner The EP IR 2450 is more than just an ordinary power conditioner. Its IR technology lets you send remote control commands to all of your home theater components through the EP IR 2450 via IR emitter cables. This gives you a new level of remote control precision and reliability that not only widens the arc of your remote controls, but also extends remote control reach even behind solid wood or metal A/V cabinets where remote signals would typically be blocked. IR receiver lets you keep components hidden Keep Components Hidden The included external IR receiver lets you keep all of your A/V components and the EP IR 2450 completely out of sight for an elegant, clean home theater look that lets the dÃ©cor speak for itself. Now you don’t have to look at distracting A/V components and blinking lights when you’re watching a movie or just relaxing. The EP IR 2450 wraps all this advanced functionality in an ultra-sleek silver chassis with a new butterfly style faceplate design. Convenient Hook Up and More The EP IR 2450 has 7 color-coded outlets that are specially labeled for home theater. Also included are corresponding color-coded stickers for your components’ power cords. If you unplug your DVR when you meant to unplug your TV, you could lose everything you programmed into the DVR. This patent pending system saves you a lot of aggravation by helping you unplug the right component at the right time and gives you easy, no-fault hookup. You’ll also appreciate the heavy-duty, extra-long power cord. Unlike many surge strips with 6-foot power cords, the EP IR 2450’s longer 8-foot cord provides the optimum length to reach most outlets. You get more of everything from the Monster Power Empowered PowerCenter EP IR 2450. Connected Equipment Warranty Monster is so confident about the protection the EP IR 2450 provides that they will replace up to $350,000 worth of your properly-connected A/V equipment if it’s damaged by an abnormal power condition.
