Specially designed to pair with our Strong VersaBox™ Pro 14”, VersaBox™ Pro 8”, or VersaMount™, the WattBox® 200 Series Compact Power Conditioner with Coax and Ethernet – 6 Outlets “drops in” to any of these boxes, utilizing the in-wall space beneath the box to save precious real estate inside the box for other equipment. But whether you place it in a structured wiring can, under a table, in a podium, or on the wall – this compact power conditioner provides premium surge protection and noise filtration to six outlets, as well as coax and Telephone/Ethernet protection. And don't let its size fool you. It's outside is just as rugged as the protection it offers, with an 18 gauge steel chassis.
To make sure that all of this WattBox’s connections are accessible when it’s dropped into a VersaBox Pro or VersaMount, we placed them all on one side – a smart, simple solution to make your life easier.
Need to use a bulky power adapter or “wall wart”? Not a problem – just use one of our handy pigtails and plug away.
Can You Ear Me Now?
Each unit comes with two metal ear brackets to attach inside a VersaBox Pro or VersaMount.
The brackets hold the WattBox in place so there’s no f-ear of it dropping through.
This unit also includes a second set of right-angle brackets for mounting on the wall, under a table, or under a podium.
Sensitive A/V equipment is negatively impacted by noisy appliances and other electronics that create interference on the AC line.
All WattBox power conditioners feature noise filtration that cleans up this "dirty power" to deliver the purest A/V experience possible.
By lowering the audio noise floor and reducing hum, you hear exactly what was intended.
Video performance can see an improvement too - with reduced power-related artifacts on HD displays.
Surges can come from a variety of sources - from fluctuations at the power company to catastrophic events such as lightning.
This excess energy can damage your connected equipment if not properly protected.
The Joule rating is a measure of a surge protector's ability to "clamp" this excess energy down to a safe level - the higher the rating, the more protection your equipment has.
MOVs, or Metal Oxide Varistors, are surge protection components that dissipate excess energy in the form of heat.
Under extreme conditions, lower quality MOVs can get so hot they catch on fire.
WattBox power conditioners feature ceramic-encased MOVs to protect not only your system but your home as well.
As an added precaution, in the event of a catastrophic spike, a thermal fuse completely disconnects AC power from your system to stop the surge in its tracks before it can get to your connected equipment.
All three "legs" of the power (hot, neutral and ground) will disconnect for unsurpassed equipment protection.
Coax, Telephone/Ethernet Protection
Not only can surges creep in on the power, but also telephone, coax and network cables.
Jacks for RJ11 or RJ45 connections are provided with full protection on all 8 pins for telephone and Ethernet applications.
Today's sophisticated HD cable and satellite systems have higher bandwidth requirements than they did even a few years ago.
3 GHz coax connections not only protect you against surge, but they deliver premium signal quality with less than 1 dB of attenuation. Pass-through voltage is supported for satellite systems.
Perfect for critical components like extenders or IR blocks, one of this power conditioner’s six outlets is always on to ensure it’s ready whenever you need it.
Flexible Power Cables
Bulky power cables can cause all sorts of frustration when installing in a cabinet or rack.
This WattBox 200-series power conditioner includes a 4 ft., detachable IEC cord that is super-flexible for easy wire management.
It also includes a shorter 6 in. cable for VersaBox Pro or VersaMount installation.
Both feature connectors that are gold plated to resist corrosion and minimize loss. For custom lengths, replacement cords are available from 6 inches long up to 15 feet.
Pick a card, any card. Sometimes it can feel like a guessing game when you're servicing equipment and trying to figure out which outlet goes to what piece of gear.
To prevent this, apply the supplied labels to each cord and know exactly what's what.
