APC H15 Home Theater Power Conditioner!
At 17" wide by 3.5" high by 9.5" deep, the
APC H15 looks like a DVD player without a disc drawer and fits into an
equipment rack as easily as any source component. Its body is light gray, its
faceplate silver. The acceptable input-voltage range of operation is 92-144V
with a nominal voltage of 120V AC. The allowable input frequency for operation
is between 47 and 63Hz.
On the rear of the H15 are two rows of six outlets each. The
top row is marked "Digital Filter." Any component can be plugged into
one of these outlets, but the top bank is optimized to protect your most
sensitive digital devices: source components, cable or satellite box, and
monitor. The bottom row is divided into three zones: a video filter for a TV
and VCR, an analog filter for a tuner and preamp or receiver, and a high-current
filter for power amplifiers and subwoofers.
The second half of the rear panel has inputs and outputs for
various other types of surge protection. The first section is a bank of coax/RF
connectors: three for cable, two for satellite. The cable connectors allow you
to go into the H15 with one coax cable; the H15 then splits this feed in two,
one each for your cable box and cable modem. A phone-line surge protector and
splitter are also provided.
Other features on the rear of the H15 include a central grounding
terminal. This connection helps eliminate the ground-loop problems commonly
found in home-theater systems. APC also includes a manual circuit breaker. A
surge coming through the power line will trip this breaker and thus protect
your valuable equipment. Finally, there are two DC triggers, an input and an
output; this allows one component to power up before another.
On the front, eight LEDs indicate the statuses of the H15’s
various functions. Wiring OK warns that there’s a problem with the wiring of
the outlet and that the H15 should be unplugged. Above that is Line OK, which
indicates when the AC line’s input voltage is within an acceptable range. If
Line OK is dark, then the H15 is required to boost or trim the power it
releases to your system, at which point the Filtering and Line Boost LEDs light
up. When the Overload LED is lit, unplug one piece of equipment at a time until
the light goes off. In this case, you may need more than one H15 for your
system. There are also a power button and two setup buttons.
The main feature on the H15’s face is its digital display,
which provides detailed information about the current power situation. When the
Line Boost LED was lit, the display showed the amount of power coming in vs.
the amount of power called for by my system. I could read these LEDs from my
listening seat and confirm the time of day my AC power was most strained.
