PB4x4 PRO - Power Distribution System,
Presenting the 4x4 PRO SERIES Power Distribution Systems from ART.
Built on the foundation of the popular 4x4s, the PRO SERIES are durably
constructed, reliable power conditioners for use in many applications.
Wherever power management system is required, the 4x4 PRO SERIES
provide the surge protection you need to keep your rack safe from
All PRO SERIES models have an additional internal discrete module
called APF(Advanced Power Filtering) which filters out digital and
dimmer hash as well as any high frequency noise that is above the audio
range. Some off-the-shelf add-on modules saturate and lose their
filtering effectiveness as the load increases, but by using a high
power discrete design we were able to create a filter that stays
effective over the full operating range.
By using both Common Mode and Differential Mode topologies in series
for the filter design we are able to block virtually all of the
unwanted noise that is between the AC line and ground, and also the two
sides of the AC line. This has the additional benefit of reducing
ground loop problems in your system. High frequency noise currents in
particular are highly attenuated in both directions so that any line
noise that could be generated by one of your components is not allowed
to get back into your main A.C. wiring so if you use a number of PRO
SERIES Power Conditioners in your setup, you can distribute and isolate
the noisy components from the sensitive components in your system.
Additionally, any signals above 10kHz are filtered from the line with
over 40dB of attenuation above 100kHz and beyond.
Every PRO SERIES power conditioner is designed with a power capacity
of 1800 Watts, surge/spike protection, APF with EMI & RFI
filtering, front-mounted unswitched power outlet and an adjustable
rear-mounted gooseneck light source for bright illumination behind the
rack. The spacing and alignment of the rear outlets to accommodate
various size power plugs and AC adapters.

Power Distribution Series Overview
studio and install, ART power distribution systems are the rugged and
affordable choice of audio professionals everywhere.
ART power distribution systems feature a "4x4" distribution on the
back of the unit -- four of the eight rear outputs are 1.25 inches
apart. This allows the user to plug in wide power cables and multiple
wall wart devices, and still have eight total power outlets to choose
Each model also features a surge and spike protection system,
designed to protect powered equipment from harmful electric surges and
spikes. The units also have RFI and EMI filtering, a 15 amp breaker,
and a total power capacity of 1800 watts. The rugged, all-steel chassis
occupies 1U-rack space, and are intended for installation into standard
19" equipment racks.
