Alesis PowerTrip 8 Power Control Unit
Install the PowerTrip8 in the top of your rack and use the eight switched AC outlets on the rear panel to power all of your equipment, up to a full 15-amp load. The line voltage monitor displays incoming voltage, and the two slide-out, swiveling light fixtures provide illumination of your gear, adjustable via the front-panel dimmer control.
The PowerTrip8 supports 8 grounded AC jacks on its rear panel, activated via a large lit power switch on the front panel. The PowerTrip8 offers superb surge and transient suppression, so all power outputs are clean and noise-free.
The unit features a large front-panel LED display that shows current AC line voltage for informed power management. Also on the front panel, the PowerTrip8 contains two pull-out light bars that have their own separate on/off switch and dimmer-control knob.
VOLTAGE METER & POWER CONDITIONER
The PowerTrip8 protects your delicate electronic equipment with a highvoltage surge and transient suppressor and an RFI/EMI interference filter. The fast-acting suppression circuit responds in less than a nanosecond, clamping transient voltages to safe levels. The filter works to prevent noise from fluorescent lights, certain dimmers, radio transmitters, and similar sources of “electronic pollution” from entering the AC line, and, from there, leaking into sensitive audio, video, or computer circuits.
The PowerTrip8 has eight AC outlets located on its rear panel, controlled by a front panel master switch which glows when the power is on. The circuit breaker-protected outlets are rated at 15 amps, which is equivalent to 1800 watts at 120 volts.
PULL-OUT RACK LIGHTS
The PowerTrip8's lamps are easy to pull out and aim. A switch on the left side of the front panel turns them on and off, and the brightness is adjusted by the nearby dimmer control.
