For more than 20 years, America's leading companies have trusted Tripp Lite's Isobar Premium surge and noise suppressors to protect sensitive computer, networking and telecom equipment. With more than 18 million satisfied customers, the Isobar remains the world's #1 selling premium surge suppressor. Loaded with a generous combination of high quality components, near indestructible all-metal case and unique noise filtration system, the isobar offers the highest level of protection attainable in a multi-outlet strip. Robust surge suppression circuits with sine-wave tracking offer extreme levels of protection against the heaviest surge conditions exceeding IEEE 587 category A & B specifications and reducing 6,000V test surges to harmless levels under 35 volts. Isobar's unique protection system combines large toroidal chokes, ferrite rod-core inductors, HF/VHF capacitors and multiple layers of metal oxide varistors into exclusive isolated filter banks that remove EMI/RFI interference, even noise generated by other pieces of connected equipment. IBAR4 offers 4 outlets arranged in two filter banks to prevent system crashes, reboots and performance problems common as noisy system peripherals are powered off and on. Surge suppression rated at 3330 joules / 85,000 amps offers network-grade protection. Widely spaced NEMA5-15 outlets accommodate up to 2 large transformer plugs without blocking outlets. Includes 6 foot AC line cord with space-saving angled input plug and keyhole mounting tabs.

Surge Protection For Mobile Stage Lighting Music Entertainment.
I use two Tripplite ISOBAR's to surge protect my mobile stage lighting system.
As my lighting system is transported to multiple venues, power surge conditions are always a concern.
Worry free ISOBAR operation allows focus on lighting performance.
Nice long six foot cord allows ISOBAR's to be located away from walls and placed exactly where needed.
Excellent quality heavy duty metal housing box take the regular transportation demands of a mobile lighting system.

ISOBAR is a premium surge protection product. I have tried many UPS's and surge protection products. UPS units are good to use, especially if you work/live in an area where power fluctuations or outages occur frequently. However, UPS units have batteries that eventually need to replaced. UPS's are a tad more expensive and do not over the same joule/surge rating.
The metal housing on the ISOBAR is indestructible, fire-safe, and features multiple isolated filter banks with quality surge absorbing components. The Ultra 4 has a rating of 3330 Joules (the greater the number, the better it is) and costs less than comparable Belkin, APC, and/or brands.
TRIPPLITE makes other solid products; ISOBAR is the pinnacle in surge protection.

I received the IBAR4 today and immediately discovered two problems. First, the serial number on the unit did not match anything on the web site tutorial for locating the serial number. Second, I expected a heavy duty ground lug, but the only ground connection is an unlabeled small silver screw on the end of the unit where the power cord enters. Furthermore, there is no mention of this screw in the owner's manual. I had to call support to get answers to both issues.

Relax with IBAR4 on the job
I have been using IBAR4 and related Tripp-Lite products for more than 8 years. Tripp-Lite stands behind this very well designed and manufactured product line, and my experience with the products has taught me to relax knowing IBAR is on the job. It is the no nonsense solution to AC power line issues.

This surge protector will work for any electronic device that uses a standard household outlet. If your washer is rated at 220v the outlet connection would be different than a standard outlet.
I would not recommend getting the surge protector wet, or any electrical device that has exposed power outlets.
Mouting the surge protector off the floor and on awall should help keep Tripplite dry.
