Coleman Cable Launches Smart Strip Surge Protector
Energy-saving power surge strip.
Waukegan, IL — Coleman Cable Inc. has introduced the Eco-Logical
, a surge protector that not only protects electronics from damaging power surges, but will lower electric bills, too. When devices, such as computers, are plugged into the Control Outlet and then go into "sleep" mode, the Smart Strip automatically cuts power to peripherals such as monitors, printers and speakers.
The Smart Strip will quickly pay for itself in energy savings and then continue to save electricity and money. Its rationale: all electronics draw power even when they are in a "sleep mode" or turned off. A printer can use up to 30 watts in sleep mode, which can add up to about $27.00 a year in energy costs. Other computer peripherals and home entertainment equipment can draw over 50 watts while standing idle. The energy being consumed by all of these "sleeping" electronics can be significant.
The unit is a high-performance surge protector available in either 7- or 10-outlet models and comes with two or three "Always-On" outlets for use with equipment that should not be turned off such as fax machines, cordless phones or cable and satellite receivers. It is especially suitable for both computer and entertainment equipment.
