Digital Signage SurgeX Power Solutions Now Available
Posted on Thursday, September 22, 2016

Chief® is now offering three new SurgeX® solutions designed to safeguard digital displays.

SurgeX FlatPak™ and MultiPak™ solutions are the premier power protection choice to safeguard digital displays and projectors from the dangers associated with electrical transients. Their multi-stage technology is superior to the single-stage MOV circuitry found in conventional surge protectors and is instrumental in reducing downtime. This technology ensures the highest level of protection and is now available to order through Chief alongside your favorite digital signage mounting solutions.


These digital signage products are an expansion of the current SurgeX offerings available from Chief, including a line of co-developed infrastructure products that combine innovative storage options with premium, non-sacrificial surge protection and noise filtration. One-SKU ordering simplifies specification. Chief also has Revit models for all powered solutions for ceiling and in-wall storage. Find them and on Autodesk SEEK.

The exclusive line of products was developed by Chief in collaboration with AMETEK® Electronic Systems Protection, the owner of SurgeX.

Products now powered with non-sacrificial surge protection:

  • Stand-Alone Wall Outlet
  • In-Wall Storage Boxes with up to six receptacles
  • Plenum Ceiling Storage Boxes
  • Suspended Ceiling Kits
  • Suspended Ceiling Projector Mount System

  • Patented non-sacrificial, multi-stage protection with industrial-grade surge protection and EMI/RFI noise filtration
  • Improved reliability and functionality of connected equipment by safeguarding equipment from high energy transients, lightning strikes and electronic noise events that can cause gear degradation and downtime
  • Non-volatile spike protection with LED power indicator
