Chicago, IL (October 25, 2007) Tripp Lite, a world-leading manufacturer of power protection equipment, is proud to announce that its new AV550SC Backup Power Block has qualified as a Finalist for the EHX 2007 Multi-Room Awards. The official winners will be announced on November 7 at this year's EHX Fall Trade Show in Long Beach, California.
"We are pleased our new AV550SC is being considered for the prestigious EHX 2007 Multi-Room Awards," stated Dennis Mariasis, Tripp Lite Audio/Video Business Development/Brand Manager. "Tripp Lite took the initiative to be the first manufacturer to offer a reliable battery backup system for customers of structured wiring enclosures, and our new AV550SC Backup Power Block has proven to be a huge success throughout the A/V community."
The AV550SC Backup Power Block also provides the highest level of protection for telephone, Internet and coax connections within structured cabling installations found in many new and existing homes. In the event of a power failure, the AV550SC includes an auto-restart feature that eliminates the need to perform an on-site startup. In addition, when a modem or router freeze-up occurs, the AV550SC features a one-touch, automatic recycle/reset button with sequential outlet startup (1 min. delay for router) for proper modem and router rebooting. Installers benefit from four 12V DC outputs that provide the ability to power optional equipment.
Tripp Lite will be showcasing the AV550SC Backup Power Block during the EHX Fall Trade Show at booth #1659, November 7-9 in Long Beach, California.
