Guide Review - Innovolt Plug-In Protector & Power Doctor Diagnostic Tool
While the HEM-X1000 is Innovolt's no-holds-barred product for protecting multiple components, the Innovolt Plug In Protector is a more affordable accessory for protecting single components, such as a computer, audio/video player and other sensitive devices against current surge. The Plug-In Protector is a single outlet device with three LED lights that indicate normal status and identify if a voltage or current surge or other electrical disturbance has occurred. Two green LEDs indicate that the AC voltage and the ground connection are operating within normal limits. The third red LED flashes when a voltage or current surge has occurred and illuminates steadily to indicate a faulty ground connection. The Plug In Protector stores disturbance data, which can be downloaded to a PC with the Innovolt Power Doctor.
The Plug-in Protector has a suggested retail price of $49.95.
Innovolt Power DoctorThe Plug-in Protector can be used with the optional Power Doctor, a diagnostic tool that identifies the type of disturbances that have occurred since the Plug-in Protector was first connected. Power Doctor is used mostly by technicians and installation contractors to identify electrical disturbances and is compatible with any of the Innovolt power protection devices. The Power Doctor reads collected data from the Plug-In Protector via an optical reader and downloads data to a PC via a USB cable. The data acquired includes the type, quantity and time of each power grid disturbance event.
The Power Doctor has a suggested retail price of $199.95
