It provides a total of eight AC outlets, arranged to accommodate up to two bulky transformers without blocking remaining outlets. Outlets are color-coded to identify component connections. The AVBAR8 also features a durable all-metal case, an eight-foot cord enabling connection to a distant wall outlet, and a space-saving right-angle plug that allows furniture to be placed flush against the wall. The case is equipped with keyhole mounting tabs to facilitate permanent installation on or under shelves, on walls, etc. Included outlet covers (set of four) can be used to safeguard unused outlets.

AVBAR8 Applications
AVBAR8 Feature Focus
Isolated Filter Banks

Improved Component Performance

Various electrical and radio sources can cause disruptive interference on the AC line. This line noise is a common cause of incremental hardware damage, data corruption and audio/video performance problems. The AVBAR8 incorporates exclusive Isobar technology, including isolated filter banks, to eliminate interference between connected components, plus full EMI/RFI line noise filtering, to ensure peak audio and video performance.

Powerful AC Line Surge Suppression

A single power surge has the potential to seriously damage or destroy sensitive A/V components. Even a minor surge can cause incremental damage that degrades performance and shortens component lifespans. The AVBAR8 features the highest surge protection rating in its class—3134 joules of surge suppression to prevent even the strongest surges from damaging your valuable electronics.

Protection on Every Connection

In addition to AC line protection, the AVBAR8 includes built-in RJ11 jacks to prevent surges from damaging your modem/fax/phone equipment (six-foot telephone cord included), built-in RJ45 jacks to prevent surges from damaging 10BT equipment on Ethernet and other network connections (six-foot network cable included) and built-in gold Type F coax jacks to prevent surges from damaging your cable/satellite equipment (digital broadband quality accommodates 2.2GHz bandwidth; six-foot coax cable included).

Built-In Diagnostic Capabilities

Three diagnostic LEDs (GROUNDED, PROTECTED & POWER) show power and protection status. An illuminated master switch provides one-touch power control over all components.

Ultimate Peace of Mind

The AVBAR8 comes with a lifetime product warranty plus $500,000 Ultimate Lifetime Insurance (USA/Canada only) covering connected components against surge damage—for life.
