IBAR12-20ULTRA Applications
Isolated Filter Banks
IBAR12-20ULTRA Feature Focus

Powerful Surge Protection and Performance Enhancement

More joules mean more protection! The IBAR12-20ULTRA'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 & B specifications and reducing 6,000V test surges to harmless levels under 35 volts. The IBAR12-20ULTRA provides 12 outlets (2 front NEMA 5-15R and 10 rear NEMA 5-20R) in a rugged all-metal 1U housing. 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 protector can interfere with one another's performance. The Isobar is the only surge protector with internal barriers, called isolated filter banks, that prevent disruptive line noise from causing 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 A/V 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 IBAR12-20ULTRA 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 IBAR12-20ULTRA to Tripp Lite for a free replacement. An illuminated master switch provides one-touch power control over all components and a 20-amp circuit breaker provides overload protection. The switch is protected by a locking, transparent plastic cover to prevent accidental shut-off of power to connected equipment.

Versatile Installation Options

The IBAR12-20ULTRA 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. A long 15-ft. cord with space-saving right-angle plug enables the IBAR12-20ULTRA to be connected 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.

Ultimate Peace of Mind

The IBAR12-20ULTRA comes with $25,000 Ultimate Lifetime Insurance coverage for connected equipment—guaranteed lifetime protection against damage due to surges, including direct lightning strikes. Ultimate Lifetime Insurance coverage begins the moment you purchase your Tripp Lite surge protector—no forms to fill out or send in! Additionally, all Tripp Lite surge protectors are backed by a lifetime product warranty and a rapid-response, no-questions-asked replacement policy. The IBAR12-20ULTRA also has a green, RoHS-compliant design.

4 out of 5 eggsLove the unit, small defects though

Pros: I use these in our lab's racks to run low-current power supplies and a host of miscellaneous instruments. I like the 20 amp fuse and the really long power cord that can reach anywhere you need to go, plus it only takes up 1U of rack space and it has outlets in front and in back.

The cutoff switch on the front is convenient when you need to work on the rack and don't want to unplug everything.

Cons: I have probably 6 of these in my lab, and most are fine, but the latest one from NewEgg was really annoying -- the holes were just off to fit in a 19-inch rack, so I had to file the holes bigger by maybe 1/16" on each side to fit.

The other thing that was annoying was that the plastic casing on the power switch arrived broken, so now the power switch is loose. I needed to use the item in the rack the very day I got it so I didn't have time to RMA, but those little annoyances cost this one an egg.
