For industrial facilities, warehouses, back rooms, rack enclosures and similarly demanding environments, you need a surge suppressor that's as rugged and versatile as it is powerful.

It provides 3840J of surge protection for connected equipment—more joules mean more protection. The IBAR12-20T also features unique isolated filter banks that block disruptive EMI/RFI line noise interference and prevent mutual interference between connected components. Detachable mounting hardware makes the IBAR12-20T easily adaptable for a wide range of installations. With more than 19 million satisfied customers worldwide, Tripp Lite's Isobar® is the world's number-one selling premium surge suppressor. That's a track record you can trust!

Powerful Surge Protection and Performance Enhancement

More joules mean more protection! The IBAR12-20T's 3840-joule surge suppression rating and Isobar surge protection technology shield connected equipment from even the strongest surges. Robust surge suppression circuits with sine-wave tracking offer extreme levels of protection against the heaviest surge conditions exceeding IEEE 587 category A and B specifications and reducing 6,000V test surges to harmless levels under 35V. The IBAR12-20T provides 12 outlets (two front NEMA 5-15R and 10 rear NEMA 5-20R) in a rugged, all-metal 1U housing with a locking L5-20P plug that prevents accidental unplugging. EMI/RFI line noise filtering helps components perform at their peak by eliminating performance problems that can be caused by radio transmissions, fluorescent lighting and appliances, while promoting longer component life spans.

Exclusive Isolated Filter Banks

Devices connected to the same surge suppressor can interfere with one another's performance—for instance, when household appliances (blenders, refrigerators, fans) degrade TV picture and sound quality. The Isobar is the only surge suppressor with internal barriers (called isolated filter banks) that prevent disruptive line noise from causing A/V distortion, computer lock-ups, data errors and similar problems. Isolated filter banks ensure that peripheral devices and appliances don't degrade the performance of computers and sensitive telecom components.

Built-In Diagnostic LEDs

Three diagnostic LEDs (LINE OK, LINE FAULT and PROTECTION PRESENT) show power and protection status at a glance, enabling you to recognize power problems before they affect your valuable equipment. The green LINE OK verifies that the IBAR12-20T is connected to a properly grounded wall outlet, while the red LINE FAULT LED indicates a grounding problem. The green PROTECTION PRESENT LED indicates that surge protection is available. If this green LED ever goes out, simply return the IBAR12-20T to Tripp Lite for a free replacement. An illuminated master switch provides one-touch power control over all components, and a 20A circuit breaker provides overload protection. The switch is protected by a locking, transparent plastic cover to prevent accidental shutoff of power to connected equipment.

Versatile Installation with Extra-Long Cord

The IBAR12-20T is optimized for 1U rackmount installation with included mounting hardware. It is also suitable for 0U vertical installation in compatible rack enclosures, as well as wall-mount, workbench and under-counter mounting. An extra-long, 15ft cord with a locking L5-20P plug enables the IBAR12-20T to be connected securely to a distant wall outlet. Its rugged, all-metal case is built to stand up to harsh environments such as warehouses, garages and factory floors.

Lifetime Product Warranty

The IBAR12-20T comes with $25,000 of Ultimate Lifetime Insurance coverage for connected equipment—guaranteed lifetime protection against damage due to surges, including direct lightning strikes. For peace of mind, it comes backed by a lifetime warranty and green, RoHS-compliant design.

5 out of 5 eggsKiller Protection

Pros: 3840 joule. If you are already behind minor protection (ex: office/dorm), and you put this in. Your equipment will be protected from almost all surges.

Cons: Expensive for a surge protector.

Other Thoughts: Nothing is too expensive for my gaming PC. Think about it, you pay hundreds, even thousands of dollars, and just $130 more will protect the computer from what most dread, a power surge that can fry components instantaneously.
