Product Research

Features

Overview: The MIW-SURGE Max In-Wall Surge Protection System provides safe, protected AC power to flat panel TVs, ceiling-mounted projectors, and powered subwoofers without the bulky power strips or hanging power wires. The plug hides discreetly behind the component for a neat, professional installation.

Design: The MIW-SURGE provides a single, surge-protected AC outlet for your equipment, plus a low-voltage signal bay for connecting or passing through audio and video cables. The port can accommodate optional installation solutions by using the supplied Decora adapter, pass-through insert, or Keystone 2-port adapter. Optional MIW Signal Line Modules (sold separately) can also be used.

AC Power Adapter: The included 11" flat power plug adapter goes between the component's AC plug and the wall outlet so you can install the equipment as close as 1" from the wall.

Note: Because the width of the plug adapter, the MIW-SURGE is not recommended for use with the Samsung TV Ultra Slim Wall Mount (305WMN1000). The wall mount reduces the gap between the TV and the wall to 5/8".

Low Voltage Signal Bay: You can use the low-voltage signal bay to pass through the component's video and audio cables. You can use the MIW Pass-Through insert, which comes installed on the mounting bracket, and cut a hole in the rubber grommet so that it fits tightly around the cable. If you want terminals at the wall plate, you can use the supplied Decora adapter or Keystone module insert, along with the appropriate terminal modules (sold separately). Another option is to use a Panamax MIW signal-line module (sold separately), such as the MIW-5RCA, MIW-DATA, MIW-SVIDEO, or MIW-VGA.

Surge Suppression Specifications: The AC outlet has the following specs:

  • Line Voltage: 120V, 50/60Hz
  • Protection Modes: L-N, L-G, N-G
  • Energy Dissipation: 1350 Joules
  • Peak Impulse Current: 60,000A
  • Catastrophic Surge Circuit: Yes
  • Thermal Fusing: Yes
  • Total Current Capacity:
    • UL 1449 2nd Ed. Suppressed Voltage Rating: 330V (@500A)
