The Panamax M5300-PM 11-Outlet Home Theater Power Conditioner provides surge and over- and under-voltage protection and 12-volt trigger input for delayed outlets . It has front-panel digital voltmeter and ampmeter and 11 AC outlets with five isolated filter banks, 3 coaxial RF and 2 pairs of Ethernet inputs and outputs plus additional phone line, front-panel USB charger and Ethernet jack.
Level 4 Power Cleaning and Linear Filtration eliminates common symptoms of contaminated power (including loss of detail, pops, hisses, hums and visual artifacts) and allows your A/V equipment to perform up to its full capability. Panamax’s patent pending AVM circuitry continuously monitors the incoming power as displayed on the digital voltmeter. In case of an undervoltage or an overvoltage, a flashing lightning bolt will be displayed in red in the voltmeter, and power to the connected equipment is automatically turned off if either of these conditions is detected. When voltage returns to a safe level, power to the equipment is automatically reconnected.
The M5300-PM is designed to provide noise isolation between 5 isolated outlet banks including 2 high current outlets so that any noise created by an A/V component can not contaminate the power going to equipment plugged into another outlet bank.
Improve Your Picture and Sound Quality While Protecting Your Home Theater Investment
All the features you need to keep your system running clean and safe
Linear Filtering Technology (LiFT)
For improving picture and sound quality nothing filters AC noise better. LiFT evenly eliminates noise across the entire bandwidth, ensuring peak audio and video performance by reducing harmonic distortion and improving the signal-to-noise ratio. With LiFT, you are assured consistent performance and the highest resolution from any audio or video playback system. Your audio/video components are constantly being bombarded by electromagnetic interference (EMI) and radio frequency interference (RFI) through their AC power source. This contaminated power can affect audio/video equipment and will degrade the overall performance of your entire system. Common symptoms of contaminated power include loss of picture detail, dull colors, pops, hisses, hums and visual artifacts.
Automatic Over and Under Voltage Protection (AVM)
Panamax’s patent pending power monitoring circuitry constantly monitors the AC line voltage for unsafe voltage conditions such as momentary spikes or prolonged over-voltages and under-voltages (brownouts). These unsafe conditions pose a very dangerous threat to all electronic equipment within the home. If the M5300-PM senses an unsafe power condition, it will automatically disconnect your equipment from the power to protect equipment from damage.Once the voltage returns to a safe level, the M5300-PM will automatically reconnect the power. When subjected to a 6,000V (open circuit voltage) / 500A (short circuit current) surge, the M5300-PM limits its voltage output to less than 330V peak, UL’s best rating. If the magnitude of the surge is greater than the capacity of the surge protection components, the M5300-PM’s Protect or Disconnect Circuitry will disconnect your equipment in order to protect it. The M5300-PM will need to be repaired or replaced by Panamax if this occurs within the product’s 3 year warranty.
Five Isolated Outlet Banks
The M5300-PM is designed to provide noise isolation between the outlet banks so that any noise created by A/V components plugged into the M5300-PM cannot contaminate the power going to equipment plugged into the other outlet banks of the M5300-PM.
Complex audio/video systems may be susceptible to voltage transients generated internally at start-up/shutdown if all of the equipment is powered on or off at the same time. This can cause speaker “thumps” which are not only annoying but can also damage the speakers and/or trip product circuit breakers. The M5300-PM is designed to eliminate these transients by providing a “start-up” delay for the High-Current outlets and a “shutdown” delay for the Switched Outlet Banks. This minimizes in-rush current issues by allowing the components plugged into the Switched Outlet Banks to power-up and stabilize before any amplifiers and powered sub-woofers are turned on. This sequence is reversed during shutdown. The amplifiers and powered subwoofers turn off, their power supplies drain, and then the equipment plugged into the Switched Outlet Banks are turned off.
USB Charger and LAN
The M5300-PM features a front panel convenience charger for mp3 players, cell phones, video game controllers, and other small electronics. (NOTE: Some devices may not be compatible with this USB charger.) There’s also an easy-to-access LAN port pass-thru from the rear panel to the front panel for online gaming as well as a convenience outlet located on the front panel for gaming systems and other electronics.
Voltage Sense Trigger
The M5300-PM voltage sense trigger input uses a standard 3.5mm (1/8″) mini-mono plug. This feature provides an ON/OFF trigger for the M5300-PM using a Direct Current voltage signal. Many components such as pre-amplifiers and receivers have a DC trigger built in, and will transmit a constant power signal when turned on and in use. The presence of this power signal will turn on the M5300- PM’s switched outlets. When the source component is turned off, the voltage trigger signal is also turned off and the M5300-PM’s shutdown sequence is initiated. An AC Adapter of the appropriate voltage plugged into a switched outlet may also be used if a DC trigger is not built in.
Protection for Cable/Satellite/Antenna, LAN, and Telephone
Coaxial protection circuits achieve optimum signal quality from our new coaxial protectors that have the smallest signal loss on the market – less than 0.5 db of attenuation from 0 MHz to 2.2 GHz. Our upgraded coaxial protection has been specifically designed to virtually eliminate signal loss. The clamping level of 75V will meet the demands of both cable and satellite voltage while minimizing exposure to damaging spikes and surges.
Digital video recorders and satellite TV receivers require a telephone line connection for TV show scheduling and/or Pay-Per-View services. The M5300-PM provides surge protection for this utilizing one pair of RJ-11 telephone jacks is provided for this. The circuitry utilizes auto-resetting PTCRs and solidstate SIDACtors for reliability and unsurpassed protection. The clamping level of the M5300- PM’s telephone protector is 260 volts. This will allow typical ring voltage (90-130VAC) and operating battery voltage (-48DC) to pass through the circuit and still protect the modem in your satellite receiver from damage.
Protection circuits for 10/100 baseT Ethernet lines. Incoming LAN line MUST be plugged into the LINE jack. Patch cord to the equipment MUST be plugged into the EQUIP jacks. 1 LAN jack goes to the front panel gaming port. 8 wire protection, 52V clamping.
