The MT-6PLUS’s 2 USB charging ports supply a total 2.1 amps of power—enough to charge the most power-hungry devices, including smartphones, tablets and MP3 players. Phone connections represent a potential back door through which a damaging surge could reach your equipment. The MT-6PLUS includes one set of built-in tel/DSL (RJ11) jacks to prevent surges from damaging your computer, fax or modem (one 6-ft. RJ11 phone cord included).
More joules mean more protection, and the MT-6PLUS delivers with a high 3150-joule surge protection rating. When compared with other surge protectors, the MT-6PLUS’s substantially larger and more robust component array provides an effective, multi-layered defense against damaging power surges. Various electromagnetic and radio sources can cause disruptive interference on the AC line. This line noise is a common cause of incremental hardware damage, data corruption and performance problems. The MT-6PLUS uses exclusive isolated filter banks that prevent line noise and interference between components from causing computer lock-ups, data errors and similar problems. Isolated filter banks ensure that peripheral devices and appliances don’t degrade the performance of computers and other sensitive equipment.
The MT-6PLUS has a total of 6 AC outlets—ample capacity for a desktop computer setup. Four outlets are individually controllable with their own On/Off switches; a Master On/Off switch controls these outlets plus one additional outlet; and the sixth outlet is “always on”—ideal for components that need to remain powered at all times (e. g., network modems and fax machines). This highly controllable outlet array gives you maximum flexibility in determining which components receive power.
The MT-6PLUS uses a space-saving, low-profile design that makes it easy to integrate into your home or office computer setup. It installs neatly under the monitor, so that power switches are readily accessible and diagnostic LEDs are easily visible. Four diagnostic LEDs (LINE OK, GROUNDED, PROTECTED and MASTER On/Off) show power and protection status at a glance. If the green PROTECTION PRESENT LED ever goes out, simply return the MT-6PLUS to Tripp Lite for a free replacement.
