TrickleStar PC Advanced PowerStrip+

The TrickleStar PC Advanced PowerStrip+ (PC APS+) is a Tier 2 APS that provides surge protection while reducing active and standby power wasted by computers and related electronics. The PC APS+ uses an activity detection sensor with an adjustable countdown timer that connects to the computer via USB. Each time the sensor detects movement near the computer – typing on the keyboard or using the mouse – the countdown timer resets. If no movement is detected by the sensor during the countdown, which can be set to 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, or 30 minutes, a sleep command is sent to the computer putting the computer and monitor to sleep, and the devices plugged into the switched outlets will be automatically turned off. The PC APS+ supports all operating systems and requires only a simple setup of the activity detection sensor without special software or additional programming.
