Overview

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, unique noise filtration system and built-in single line phone suppression for modems, the Isobar/Isotel series 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. ISOTEL8ULTRA 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/92,000 amps offers network-grade protection. Widely spaced NEMA 5-15 outlets accommodate up to 4 large transformer plugs without blocking outlets. Pair of RJ11 jacks offer single phone line surge suppression for modems, fax machines and cordless phones. 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.

Comments about Tripp Lite Isobar 8-Outlet Surge Protector 12-ft. Cord 3840 Joules Tel/Fax/Modem Protection:

Used this unit in my high-end stereo system. Plugged all key components into the unit. Actually think that the stereo system sounds better - mostly clearer than before putting the unit into place.

Comments about Tripp Lite Isobar 8-Outlet Surge Protector 12-ft. Cord 3840 Joules Tel/Fax/Modem Protection:

Tripp Lite Isobar saved the day, when an electrical storm hit my house. The Isobar took the hit and save my big TV, and stereo system. Best of all Tripp Lite replaced the Isobar, with a simple phone call. Now I use Tripp Lite Isobar units on all my electronics.

Comments about Tripp Lite Isobar 8-Outlet Surge Protector 12-ft. Cord 3840 Joules Tel/Fax/Modem Protection:

Was impressed by the sturdy, all metal construction. The outlets have enough spacing that plug-in transformers do not render adjacent outlets unusable.

Comments about Tripp Lite Isobar 8-Outlet Surge Protector 12-ft. Cord 3840 Joules Tel/Fax/Modem Protection:

The ISOTEL8ULTRA has enough outlets for most household and office computer stations and offers FAX and phone protection. It's so convenient to have enough outlets and even a few spares when you need them. This product is a winner with excellent quality, features, and performance.

The on/off switch breaks down continually

By ralphac

from Undisclosed

Comments about Tripp Lite Isobar 8-Outlet Surge Protector 12-ft. Cord 3840 Joules Tel/Fax/Modem Protection:

I am not the only one that has experienced your cheap faulty on/off switch.
It's causing you unnecessary expense and your customer unnecessary spent time getting a replacement.
I have your unit connected to a new 6 socket electric bar in the ON position so I don't use your switch to turn it on. What a waist of the extra bar.
What could it possibly cost to replace the on/off switch with one that doesn't break down almost every 1 to 2 years?

I've owned and used their products over the past 50 years. Their products are well made, and they stand behind them even after years of use. Do yourself a favor and treat yourself to one or more.

Isobar's just work

By Bob

from Undisclosed

Comments about Tripp Lite Isobar 8-Outlet Surge Protector 12-ft. Cord 3840 Joules Tel/Fax/Modem Protection:

The library has used Isobar's for 15+ years and they just work. Earlier units were best to just leave on, as switch seemed to fail after 6 or 7 years.
Case is nice heavy duty metal.
Great warranty.
A few have absolutely protected some PC's saving a lot of $$$ for us.
You need surge protection !!

failed switch again on isotel8ultra->replacement?

By swong

from Undisclosed

Comments about Tripp Lite Isobar 8-Outlet Surge Protector 12-ft. Cord 3840 Joules Tel/Fax/Modem Protection:

Having been a faithful tripp-lite user for over 20 years I have always championed/recommended isotel8ultras to friends and family. Design and features are top notch however the weakest link once again appears to be the power on/off switch which fails with regularity. The last replacement appeared to have a black colored switch which replaced the trouble prone white colored switch. As luck would have it the updated isotel8ultra with updated switch has failed me once again. I am hoping Tripp-lite will honor their warranty with a replacement unit which I just applied for. My suggestion is to stock replacement switches with fast-on connectors which would not only remedy a quick repair but limit costly returns due to weight shipping units to and from repair center. I try and limit the times I power up and down the unit however kids and wife use the switch constantly as they are "green" conscious

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.
