A Merit “M” Series Power Conditioner is the perfect low-cost AC power solution for any rack mount system. Install an M-8x, M-8Dx, or M-8Lx in the top slot of your rack, and the eight switched AC outlets in the rear panel will power up and protect all your equipment up to a 15-amp load. The M-8Lx and M-8Dx feature two slide out, swiveling light fixtures to provide discreet illumination of your equipment on stages, in studios, and in other dark places. A dimmer knob lets you adjust the lamp brightness to just the right level. The M-8Dx adds a bright red, three-digit LED meter that displays incoming voltage. The M-8x is designed for applications where lights are not required.
Mx-Series conditioners protect your delicate electronic equipment by combining high voltage varistor (MOV) surge and transient suppressors. The fast-acting supression circuit quickly responds and clamps transient voltages to safe levels. An RFI/EMI interference filter works to prevent noise from fluorescent lights, certain dimmers, radio transmitters, and similar sources of “electronic pollution” from contaminating the AC line and from there, leaking into sensitive audio, video, or computer circuits. The M-8x and M-8Lx are NRTL/TUV listed.
For safety, a circuit breaker is provided on the rear panel. If the total load on the Power Conditioner (combining all outlets) exceeds the 15A (or 1800 watt limit), the circuit breaker will trip. If this happens, it may be easily reset by pushing in the button. There is no need to replace fuses.
For convenience in traveling, the lamps (not available on the M-8x) may be pushed in, safely out of the way. When the rack is again ready to use, they pull out easily (up to 2.75 inches, or 7 cm) and may be adjusted to provide optimum illumination for your equipment. The units come supplied with 5 watt night-light bulbs. Cooler-running 4 watt bulbs or even colored Christmas tree bulbs may be substituted, if desired. Replacements are readily available at most hardware stores or almost anywhere household light bulbs are sold, and can be ordered from Furman. Bulbs are easily replaced without removing the unit from the rack by unscrewing the cap on the end of each light tube.
All models have a convenient master switch for the rear outlets which glows when the power is on. In models with lighting, there is a separate “Rack Lights” switch for the lamps, plus a dimmer control knob which increases the lamps’ brightness.
