With this 7 outlet Smart Strip Power Strip, the outlets work together, auto-switching your devices on and off automatically, saving you money on your electric bills. Two of the outlets always have power, allowing you to plug-in devices that should never turn off (one of those is transformer-spaced). The other four are "controlled", meaning they will automatically turn off whenever a 10%+ drop in current to the main outlet is detected, and automatically turn on when an increase of 7 watts or more in power to the main outlet is sensed. In other words, plug your computer into the main outlet, and its peripherals into the others. When you shut down your computer, all of the peripherals on the controlled outlets will also turn off. When you turn on your computer, the peripherals will all turn on.
It has a lighted power switch, and is wall mountable. The Smart Strip has two RC filters to help prevent false switching. The 6 foot long power cord is a heavy-duty power cord. It uses 1 watt of electricity when fully energized, and 0 watts when the switched outlets are off. Its surge suppression and power quality-related electrical specifications include:
Note: This BITs power strip requires a 10% drop in current or more. It may not operate properly with already energy efficient low power devices, such as Apple iMacs, Mac Mini G4s, and laptop computers.
