ISOBAR8ULTRA Isobar Surge Protector

Overview

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.

An Excellent Surge Protector

By Hank

from Charleston, SC

Verified Reviewer

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

After many hours of research, Tripp Lite's Isobar, 8 outlet, metal, model is my top pick.

Its most salient characteristics are:

a clamping voltage of 140;
a let-through rating of a 330 volts;
and a "ring wave let-through" of less than 35 volts.

. . . and, it has a 3840 Joule suppression rating.

All of these figures are excellent.

Many manufacturers promote surge protectors that accommodate cables. You don't need or even want this. A protector will distort the signal that the cables provide and also slow it down. Furthermore, those cables are already grounded to the outside.

Ryan, in Tripp Lite's Support Center, is great: very informative and otherwise helpful.

Tripp-Lite Products are Great

By Jerry7013

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

I have purchased several Tripp-Lite Surge Suppressors over the years. The only problem(s) I have had with them are the on/off switches. In both cases, Tripp-Lite replaced the units with new ones with no hassle. Just providing new switches would have satisfied me. They really stand behind their products. Great company.

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

I am currently using the Tripp Lite device to protect the various components in my home theatre set up.I also have 2 other surge protection devices from other manufacturers and they do the job they were designed for.However this time after doing a fair amount of online research i decided to go with Tripp Lite because of their reputation in the industry and the cost was also a deciding factor.Excellent value for the money.

Best. Surge Protector. Ever.

By AMZ

from Flagstaff, AZ

Verified Reviewer

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

My dad actually purchased an Isobar back in the 80's and it is still working to keep home theater equipment safe from surges to this day.

When I was getting ready to head off to college, I determined that i needed to buy a surge protector for my laptop and other sensitive gear, the Isobar was the only choice. Now that i have used it more, i have noticed less hang-ups in my computer system, and less noise when i plug in a large PA speaker.

The Isobar is built like a tank! Sturdy, metal construction definitely proves to me that this one will last me many years, just like the one my dad bought all those years ago.

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.
