  • What's Included
  • Turn any AC outlet on and off with a DC control voltage. The Controlled AC Outlet is capable of switching up to 15 amps of continuous current to a single device or power strip. This control voltage switched outlet provides a convenient means to manage the power ON/OFF status of A/V components in a multi-zone system that can remember their "on" condition when their power cords are unplugged. The Controlled AC Outlet can also be used to switch components that draw more power than is available from the switched AC outlet on the rear of A/V receivers or preamps. Flanges and supplied screws permit easy mounting to flat surfaces.

    I bought this for a last ditch effort to switch on/off a rack mount sub amp. The amp has a standby power consumption of 23 watts. My first attempt was using my monster power HTS 3500 mk2. Granted it's over 10 years old and I had never used this feature, it worked at first but began to have trouble, its internal relay started rapid clicking when triggered. This made the sub amp rapidly turn on and off.

    Here is where the Xantech AC1 saves the day. I have had this for more then a month without a single hiccup. I highly recommend

    Works very well. Just hook up two DC wires and plug it in and it's ready to go.

    Product works as expected. Cannot ship to China as there is no China Compliance Certificate available.

    Review of 81301

    My Samsung receiver came without a built-in switched AC receptacle which I need to automatically power up another AV component whenever the receiver is turned on. The Xantech controlled AC outlet was a perfect substitute. I connected the Xantech's control input to my receiver's 12v 100ma trigger output. I used a mini-audio plug on the receiver side and stripped wire ends to the Xantech screw-clamp terminals. Whenever the receiver is on, the receiver's 12v trigger output causes the Xantech to switch 120VAC 15A wall power to whatever is plugged into it. The Xantech switch is housed in a metal box and overall looks to be well made. It's been working fine for a couple of months now. The price was a little steep, but I would recommend it to a friend.
