    CHICAGO, Nov. 11 /PRNewswire/ -- Tripp Lite, a world leader in the
 manufacture of power protection equipment, today announced the addition of
 three new Super 10 Surge Suppressors to its Super Series line.  The
 award-winning Super Series line is noted for reliable surge protection
 available in numerous configurations across a broad range of price points.
 The new Super 10 models address the demand in PC and consumer electronic
 markets for affordable, feature-rich surge suppressors with plentiful outlets
 and built-in phone/fax and coaxial line protection capabilities.
     Super 10 models feature 10 outlets with convenient, built-in safety covers
 keeping children safe from electric shocks and preventing dust and debris from
 entering the protector.  Two of the 10 outlets are designed to remain on even
 when the master power switch is off, providing uninterrupted power to clocks,
 fax and answering machines, etc.  All Super 10 models include an extra-long 10
 ft. cord to reach distant outlets and a space-saving right angle plug that
 allows furniture to remain flush against the wall.  Colored cord stickers
 conveniently identify each connected device's cord, preventing accidental
     All Super 10 models also feature a unique beveled design allowing
 transformers to be plugged in without covering adjacent outlets.  Three
 diagnostic LEDs indicate incoming power problems, including faulty receptacle
 wiring.  This feature allows users to address problem situations before
 equipment is affected.  The Super 10 Deluxe Model includes a fourth LED to
 alert users to dangerous low voltage conditions that can damage connected
 equipment and corrupt data.
     Super 10 Surge Suppressors feature 2-line Internet/phone line protection
 to stop surges on two lines simultaneously.  This feature enables users to
 protect both Internet and phone/fax connections at the same time, eliminating
 their need to buy additional phone line surge suppressors.
     The Super 10 DBS features premium AC protection and gold-plated coaxial
 "F" connectors to protect all home theater equipment such as TVs, satellite
 receivers, VCRs, CD and DVD players and stereo receivers.  PC users may also
 use these coaxial jacks to protect broadband cable modems and PC TV cards.
 Gold-plated coaxial connectors provide premium signal quality.  The Super 10
 DBS features built-in RJ11 jacks to prevent surges traveling on your modem,
 fax, phone, web TV or pay-per-view lines from affecting connected equipment.

 protection ratings, and their exceptional reliability is backed by $50,000
