This thing is a tank

By Craig C

from Undisclosed

Comments about Tripp Lite Isobar 4-Outlet Surge Protector 6-ft. Cord 3330 Joules Space-Saving Plug:

In 2000 I was working for a IT company, who deployed only these to their clients. The others I worked with swore by them. I purchased one, and, today, 15 years later, the only thing wrong with it is that the light in the lighted switch burned out. However it continues to protect and provide power without a hum or any problems at all. It really is a tank.

Excellent Product & Warranty

By DH in Rural WI

from Undisclosed

Comments about Tripp Lite Isobar 4-Outlet Surge Protector 6-ft. Cord 3330 Joules Space-Saving Plug:

I bought my first IBAR4 in the 1980's when I got my first computer while working at a software company. This is the one they recommended and I have never regretted it. When the original one from the 80's died, it was only a phone call and it was replaced under the lifetime warranty - I was ecstatic. We now live in a rural area with less than stellar electric service with many surges. Nothing has gotten through this surge protector. Highly recommend.

Protecting My Electronic Equipment for Decades

By MusicianBear

from Undisclosed

Comments about Tripp Lite Isobar 4-Outlet Surge Protector 6-ft. Cord 3330 Joules Space-Saving Plug:

I learned about Tripp-Lite surge protectors when I worked as a Computer Systems Field Service Engineer over 15 years ago. I visited customer sites where major power-line disturbances had occurred. Some Isobar surge protectors had failed - when they stopped lightning strikes (!), but whatever had been plugged into them remained unscathed.
When it came time to specify power protection for my workshop and studio I selected Tripp-Lite Isobar Surge Protectors. I have had no reason to doubt my selection, and it has been over a decade.

Comments about Tripp Lite Isobar 4-Outlet Surge Protector 6-ft. Cord 3330 Joules Space-Saving Plug:

The product has been kicked, dropped, pulled, and etc. I have had the product for about a year and few power outs. The equipment that is plugged into it is still running. This is the one thing my internet company did right. They recommended this product.

Surge Protection For Mobile Stage Lighting Music Entertainment.

By DJ Lumpia

from Undisclosed

Comments about Tripp Lite Isobar 4-Outlet Surge Protector 6-ft. Cord 3330 Joules Space-Saving Plug:

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.

Highly recommended.

Best protection!

By NIKOMAN

from Undisclosed

Comments about Tripp Lite Isobar 4-Outlet Surge Protector 6-ft. Cord 3330 Joules Space-Saving Plug:

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.

Two Problems

By dmcminds

from Undisclosed

Comments about Tripp Lite Isobar 4-Outlet Surge Protector 6-ft. Cord 3330 Joules Space-Saving Plug:

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.

A rare product with a solid warranty

By jichen

from Undisclosed

Comments about Tripp Lite Isobar 4-Outlet Surge Protector 6-ft. Cord 3330 Joules Space-Saving Plug:

Here is my very simple and solid experience with the ISOBAR-4 product. I bought the product more than 12 years, never had any equipment failure due to power during that time, 10 years into the ownership, the switch on the product no longer work properly due to the many on/off cycle this product has been experiencing on a daily basis (connected to my primary PC that is turned off and on on a daily basis via the switch). I submitted a request to TRIPP-LITE for replacement, all I needed to provide was the product model and serial number and ship back the defect product, a new replacement was in my hands a few days later. Such excellent replacement policy after more than 1 decade owning the product, there is simply no comparison.
Since then, I have purchased one additional 6 outlet ISObar product without reservation to protect my home theater system, because I know I can count on the product to always be there when I need it, just solid solid product support. Couldn't ask for more.

Relax with IBAR4 on the job

By werodda

from Undisclosed

Comments about Tripp Lite Isobar 4-Outlet Surge Protector 6-ft. Cord 3330 Joules Space-Saving Plug:

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.

Frequently Asked Questions

A surge protector will protect your electronics by acting as an “electrical sponge” by clamping down on spikes, “soaking them up” and converting the excess energy into heat, thus preventing the spikes from passing through the surge protector into the sensitive electronic devices and damaging them. As with any “sponge” a surge protector has a limited absorption capacity. Once that capacity is reached, the unit is no longer able to protect and must be replaced.
All outlets on a Tripp Lite surge protector are designed to pass power continuously, as controlled by the master or individual power switches, to connected equipment.

Follow these instructions in an attempt to restore normal operation:
1. Remove any equipment still connected to the unit.
2. Be sure that the master switch is in the Off position.
3. Unplug the unit from the AC power source.
4. Check the circuit breaker on the unit to make sure that it is reset.
5. Find an outlet that provides computer-grade 120V AC power. Check the outlet by plugging in a device, such as an alarm clock or radio, to verify that the outlet is passing power.
6. Plug the unit into the outlet.
7. Toggle the master switch and all other power switches to the On position.
8. One by one, connect a small device, such as an alarm clock or radio, to each outlet at the rear of the unit. Test the device to make sure that it is working properly at each outlet.

If the unit is not passing power from all outlets after these steps have been followed, the unit requires replacement.
Isobar surge protectors have the ability to minimize EMI (electromagnetic interference) and RFI (radio frequency interference) on the input AC line. However, a piece of equipment attached to the Isobar may still receive interference from other devices nearby.

Here are some common reasons why a device plugged into an Isobar may be receiving interference:
    -A second device that is plugged into the same filter bank as the device receiving interference may be causing the problem.
    -Another device in use nearby can cause interference through the air, not through the AC line.
    -The surge protector may have taken a surge hit and requires replacement.


Follow these steps to identify the problem:
1. Unplug the device that is receiving interference and plug it directly into a wall outlet. Test to make sure that the device is working properly.
2. If the device operates correctly, proceed to the next step. If it does not operate correctly, contact the manufacturer of the device to determine the problem. There may also be another device close by that is causing interference.
3. Remove any other devices connected to the Isobar where the first device was plugged in.
4. Plug the device that is receiving interference back in into the same outlet where it was previously connected to the Isobar. Test to make sure your connected device is working properly.

If you have followed these steps and the device still does not work properly, the Isobar requires replacement.
