Islatrol SP-6TVN


The Islatrol SP-6TVN plug-in unit is an Active Tracking Filter which plugs into a standard duplex receptacle. It features uniquely designed repositionable outlets for easy installation behind desks and other furniture. It protects sensitive home or office equipment from damaging power disturbances traveling through wiring to electrical outlets.

Special Circuitry: The Islatrol® SP-6TVN/SP-6TN multi-stage suppressor contains specialized circuitry to eliminate damage from surges. Part of the circuitry is an internal fuse that will open in the rare event the Islatrol® SP-6TVN/SP-6TN is overloaded or exposed to a high-energy surge beyond its capacity.

Indication: There is an indicator on the Islatrol® SP-6TVN/SP-6TN to show if the suppressor is functioning.

Load size: You may plug up to a 15 amp device into the SP-6TVN/SP-6TN without over-loading.

Video: The Islatrol® SP-6TVN/SP-6TN video protection consists of two modules. Both are suitable for satellite dish protection, cable TV, cable modems, and any other video device.

Telephone: The Islatrol® SP-6TVN/SP-6TN telephone protection is designed for any telephone application such as modems, fax machines, pay-per-view, DSL and other phone use.
