The PST-8 features transient voltage surge suppression for both standard telephone lines, as well as cable and satellite lines utilizing standard coaxial connectors. As these surge suppressors are inline, they will require an additional cable (supplied with the PST-8) to connect from their output to the control device requiring protection.
All in-line surge suppressors feature our exclusive ground contamination free technology. This aids in eliminating audio buzzing, and the video hum-bars that can result from typical in-line suppressors. Further, our cable and satellite suppressors are TIVO friendly as well as HD-Digital Television ready. Both DC carrier signals as well as high bandwidth signals can pass through our circuit. In fact the bandwidth is less than 0.1dB loss at 1GHz!
It is not possible to make an in-line cable / satellite protector "maintenance-free" as we have accomplished with the 120 VAC line. This would necessitate limited signal bandwidth that would not allow the signal to pass. Under extreme conditions, it is possible that the surge suppression in one of these devices could sacrifice itself after a catastrophic event.
If the telephone, cable or satellite signal will no longer pass through our protector, please send your Power Station to Furman for servicing. To test this, simply disconnect the incoming and out going cable from the PST-8. Connect the incoming connector to the component that formerly received the out going connector, thus by-passing the in-line protection. If the signal is present (but not when used with the PST-8) then the protection circuit is damaged (assuming it worked properly before the storm or catastrophic event).
If the Power Station needs to be mounted to the inside panel of a rack or hung from a wall, a convenient crossed oval cutout is provided on the unit's bottom panel. A standard No. 6 pan head screw can be used in the same way a picture is hung from a wall. Simply measure the centers on the bottom of your Power Station. This will be the distance from the two mounting holes drilled into your wall, rack or cabinet surface. Once the screw is fastened flush with the surface, back it out approximately 1/4".
