For more than 20 years, America's leading companies have trusted Tripp Lite's Isobar Premium surge and noise protectors 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 protector. 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. ISOBAR8ULTRA offers 8 outlets arranged in four filter banks to prevent system crashes, reboots and performance problems common as noisy system peripherals are powered off and on. Surge suppression rated at 3840 joules/97,000 amps offers network-grade protection. Widely spaced NEMA 5-15 outlets accommodate up to 4 large transformer plugs without blocking outlets. Diagnostic LEDs confirm power availability, line fault and protection status. Includes 12 foot AC line cord with space-saving angled input plug, keyhole mounting tabs and a set of 4 child safety covers.

ISOBAR8ULTRA Perfect for Amateur Radio

By 

from Undisclosed

Comments about Tripp Lite Isobar 8-Outlet Surge Protector 12-ft. Cord 3840 Joules:

I have a ham shack and work from home office with radios and computer equipment. Transceivers and computers typically don't get along very well on the same isolated ground circuit. Both have sensitive circuit boards in them and are susceptible to stray RF (radio frequencies), power line noise and surges, and static electricity. This surge protector has been excellent in keeping all my expensive equipment safe from the above mentioned hazards that can destroy integrated circuits. I have the 4 outlet model for my mobile operations and it works great as well. I Highly Recommend!

Wish I'd bought it before the Lightning Strike!.

Comments about Tripp Lite Isobar 8-Outlet Surge Protector 12-ft. Cord 3840 Joules:

People be warned, even with a new home, state of art plugs and a well grounded electrical system, I still suffered disaster from lightening striking, not my home, but, just my front yard!
3 weeks ago lightening struck my front yard. Besides scaring the peewaddy diddly out of me and my old dogs, it fried my old surge protector along with these items plugged into it, including my new Lenova Desktop, my HP all-in-one multi-function laser printer, my 10-key adding machine, my land phone, and my Passport external harddrive, and all the other 7 USB products plugged into my USB Hub. I Couldn't find proof of purchase for my old surge protector, so I'm stuck with replacing all these items on my own, except the desktop that still had a warranty.
My ISOBAR8ULTRA has a protection plan large enough to cover everything that is plugged into it. I plan on purchasing more from Tripplite for all my large home appliances. MY only complaint is the appearance. I Would like it to look more attractive in my office & home, opposed to looking like something I would place in my garage.
Hope I win the free trip, I'm several years past due for a visit with my sister in California and I hope it's good for Hawaii. We both want to go there before we die. But Heaven's problem a nicer place to go anyway. At the ripe ages of 68 & 74 thats closer rather than further.
Oh well, thanks for a great product that you believe in enough to provide such a great protection plan. Just pray I never need to use it.

WELL MADE BUT POOR RECEPTICLE LAYOUT

By 

from Undisclosed

Comments about Tripp Lite Isobar 8-Outlet Surge Protector 12-ft. Cord 3840 Joules:

Tripplite has always been my number one choice for surge protectors because of the high quality of workmanship and materials used in these products.

The same is true f0r this surge protector.

Nevertheless, I do not recommend this particular product because both rows of outlets face the same direction which prevents the upper row from being used for large plugs if the corresponding area in the lower row has plugs in it.

Great Surge Protector

By 

from Undisclosed

Comments about Tripp Lite Isobar 8-Outlet Surge Protector 12-ft. Cord 3840 Joules:

I like the 8 outlets, and the fact it is not all plastic. I purchased this for my bedroom for my sleep number bed. I live in central Florida, and we have many lightning storms. I needed my bed protected. With the high joules I know I am safe.

VERY BORING PRODUCT. JUST DOES ITS JOB.

By

Comments about Tripp Lite Isobar 8-Outlet Surge Protector 12-ft. Cord 3840 Joules:

My ISOBAR8ULTRA just sits under my desk, tacked onto the wall. No noise, no drama, no entertainment.
Oh, it has three lights. Yippee. They don't even flash.
We've had some power outages here with their accompanying return surges. ISOBAR didn't toot, buzz or whistle, and nothing smoked or smelled funny.
Can you please outfit the next version with a video screen?

Great product from a well respected company!

Comments about Tripp Lite Isobar 8-Outlet Surge Protector 12-ft. Cord 3840 Joules:

I have been using Tripp-Lite brand isobars and surge protectors for decades. This company is the best to do business with. The only time I ever had a problem with one of my isobars was when a power light was flickering and, after speaking with a rep. from Tripp-Lite, decided to send it back for a safety check. They sent me a completely new strip (and this was one I had had for quite a while, already). The Osobar8Ultra is one I purchased for use with my keyboards and other sound equipment that I use in a band. I love it! 8 protected circuits, lights to let me know if there is a fault and a 12' cord that can reach any outlet I need to get hooked up quickly. In my opinion (from years of trying various brands) Tripp-Lite is THE best company to purchase from and sells only high-end equipment. Buy it, you won't regret it!
