Panamax is the #1 Name in Power Protection and Performance
Our power management products give your audio/video systems the pure, noise-free power they need for superlative performance, providing longevity to the components connected while protecting them from damage caused by power surges and lightning.
Key technologies that make us the ongoing favorite among home technology integrators include:
Automatic Voltage Monitoring (AVM)
As electricity demands change all throughout the day or night, voltage swells (Increases) or sags (Decreases) have adverse effects on appliance or component performance, as well as stress internal components of your devices. In addition, when power supplies or internal components sustained over/under-voltage, the lifespan of your electronics is significantly diminished.
By monitoring input voltage from the wall or circuit, Panamax Power Management Products, with AVM, protect equipment from damage or major component degradation by disconnecting the power and reconnecting it when safe power returns. The circuit will disconnect if the voltage sags below 92 volts (±) or swells above 138 volts (±), product dependent.
Natural disasters and catastrophic events are both very serious for any household or business. Protecting devices during such electrical nightmares is mandatory with surge protectors.
Using thermal fuses and high capacity MOVs all Panamax Power Management protection products have this catastrophic protection circuit as a fundamental layer of defense. Protect-or-Disconnect is a Panamax trademarked technology which places the Panamax device last in the line of defense, doing simply what the name suggests. Using this technology, your device(s) are protected from the most disastrous of electrical events.
Premium Noise Filtration
Digital components are becoming more and more sophisticated. As components evolve, their power supplies become more efficient (switching vs. linear) and they engage more actions (processes) when running. These additions contribute to severe electrical feedback and noise. In addition, common household appliances such as refrigerators or AC compressors use large motors, which back feeds electrical noise down the AC line to your valuable equipment.
Panamax Power Management devices filter out such unwanted noise using proprietary filtration circuits such as our Balanced Double "L" circuit. Certain Panamax products use a combination of specific filtration circuits and balanced power combining isolation transformers with proprietary technology, offering Power Management devices for every need.
LiFT™ - Linear Filtration Technology
Most "line conditioners" or filtration devices use generic circuits (capacitors and inductors) to filter AC line noise. Although these basic internal components do their job dutifully, improperly tuned filter sets (or generic circuits) leave behind unwanted harmonic noise which is detrimental to system performance and is unacceptable in a Power Management product. Most high performance Home Theater devices (Blu-ray Disc Players, Pre/Pros, Digital projectors) benefit greatly from high quality noise filtration. The more the resolution (1080p and 4K) the greater the results with quality noise filtration.
LiFT (Linear Filtration Technology) uses finely tuned application specific internal components to filter noise evenly across the entire frequency band. This insures best in class noise filtration without expensive transformers or added weight. This feature is found in select Panamax Power Management products. Panamax’s PM Components offer LiFT technology.
As electricity demands change in your Audio/Video system and throughout your house, voltage delivery can be constantly varying. When current demand changes (ex. dynamic passage in movie sound track or large flat panel display with varying content), current draw changes dramatically. When your AV system or household draws more amperage, the voltage can drop, compromising AV performance. Although agency certified appliances and equipment operate normally under minor voltage variations (5% over/under), optimum equipment performance can only be obtained with stable power.
Panamax offers voltage regulation (or stabilization) in a few products. Although there are many different ways of stabilizing voltage, our approach isn’t through a battery or servo-controlled magnetically manipulated transformer. Using a solid state design, Panamax offers both a highly precise regulation topology with and a value oriented regulation option for an assortment of applications, both with silent operation with zero moving parts.
Isolated Outlet Banks
Noise throughout a household or Audio/Video system is a legitimate performance robbing issue. Adding an AC line conditioner reduces or practically eliminates AC line noise, however connected AV products are sources of noise themselves. Whether it’s a DVD player, audio receiver, HTPC (or media center), these are sources of noise themselves.
With outlets in pairs, isolated outlet banks offer additional filtration by outfitting particular banks with independent filtration circuits. Noise generated by associated devices in an AV system is isolated from other devices connected to adjacent banks, thereby further reducing the AC line noise effecting precious components.
For mobile phones, tablets and other small gadgets that take their power charge through USB, Panamax PM components, the MR4300 and MR5100 feature a USB charging port on the front panel, plus a front panel gaming outlet.
