Product Overview

The CyberPower 1090 Essential Surge Protector provides computer/audio/video-grade surge suppression with 3000 joules of protection. The 1090 has 10 surge-protected outlets (6 standard and 4 widely spaced) with full data line protection.

The RJ11 ports protect phone/fax/modem/DSL equipment and the RJ45 ports protect network connected equipment, such as computers, hubs, and routers. Two (2) gold-plated RG6 coaxial ports guard cable modems, cable TV lines, and DSS equipment. Four (4) widely spaced outlets allow for the connection of bulky DC transformers that are found on many popular electronic devices. Electro-magnetic and radio frequency interference (EMI/RFI) filtering blocks EMI/RFI from entering your equipment. Metal oxide varistor (MOV) technology ensures the protection of all connected electronics and the surge suppressor itself.

CyberPower fully stands behind its products with a lifetime product warranty and Connected Equipment Guarantee of $200,000.

Product Features
  • Metal Oxide Varistor (MOV)
    MOV technology allows normal current to pass through the device, while diverting any surge/spikes through the ground circuit. This safely protects all connected electronics along with the surge suppressor itself.
  • Built-In Automatic Shutdown
    In the event that the surge/spike exceeds the model’s ability to suppress the signal, the CyberPower 1090 surge suppressor will safely shut itself down to protect all connected electronics.
  • Transformer-spaced Outlets
    Widely spaced outlets allow you to conveniently add transformer-based plugs without compromising the utility of other outlets.
  • EMI/RFI Shielding
    Provides shielding against electromagnetic interference and radio frequency signals. Most commonly, this is used to prevent line noise that occurs over telephone lines and stereo electronics.
  • ISO and Safety Certifications
    All CyberPower manufacturing facilities are ISO-9001 Quality Tested. Our products are also UL Listed and CSA Certified.
  • Child-Safe Outlets
    Outlets on the surge suppressor that are not used can be closed off so accidental charging of objects cannot occur.
  • Keyhole Mounting Slots
    Convenient mounting slots are located on the back on the surge suppressor.
  • Sturdy ABS Case
    Constructed of impact-resistant composite material for maximum durability.
  • Limited Lifetime Warranty
    Covers defects in materials and workmanship in the product under normal use and conditions. See warranty for details.

Why Do I Need A Surge Protector?

Utility power supplied to electrical outlets is sometimes inconsistent. The short-duration voltage surges or spikes that occasionally happen can damage components in electronic devices such as computers and workstations. In addition to equipment damage, irretrievable data loss may occur. In the U.S., the nominal or standard voltage supplied to household and office wiring is 120 volts. A voltage surge or spike can cause electronic components to overheat, either immediately destroying them or causing permanent damage that can lead to premature failure.

A surge protector or surge suppressor provides protection against power surges. This device is located in the power circuit between the utility power outlet and the connected electronic equipment. Surge protectors work by diverting excess voltage to the ground, allowing only the nominal voltage to travel through the wiring to connected devices. This is accomplished using a variable resistance component in the surge protector called a metal oxide varistor (MOV). Under normal voltage conditions, the resistance of the MOV is such that it remains closed. As utility voltage increases beyond nominal, the MOV resistance decreases accordingly which forces the unwanted overvoltage to ground, maintaining a constant flow of nominal voltage to sensitive electronic equipment.
