The Tripp Lite IBAR12-20ULTRA surge protector is designed for installation in standard EIA 19-in. (42.8cm) server racks. A 15-ft (4.5m) cord provides access to hard-to-reach electrical outlets. Additional protections provide the security you need to safeguard servers and other sensitive electrical equipment.

Tripp Lite Surge Protector Provides Industrial-Grade Protection

The 2 NEMA 5-15R and 10 NEMA 5-20R outlets on this surge protector accept professional-grade networking telecom and data server equipment. They protect motherboards, power supplies and sensitive electronic components from surges and spikes due to electrical storms or unexpected irregularities from the power grid. Outlets are arranged in two separate banks to prevent potential distortion or interference from different pieces of equipment. The Tripp Lite surge protector has an automatic shutoff and a 20-amp circuit breaker that immediately cuts off the power supply to your equipment, keeping it powered down until you can diagnose the situation.

Rack-Mount Surge Protector Reduces Line Noise

This Tripp Lite surge protector features filters that reduce line interference from electromagnetic and radio wave frequencies for improved conductivity. It also has a 3840 professional-grade joule rating, ideal for data centers and server rooms. LED lights clearly display the current status of the 12-outlet surge protector, including line fault.


For industrial facilities, warehouses, server rooms and similarly demanding environments, you need a surge protector that's as rugged and versatile as it is powerful. Tripp Lite's IBAR12-20ULTRA Rackmount Surge Protector delivers on every count. Featuring exclusive Isobar® surge suppression technology in a 1U rackmount, all-metal housing that's practically indestructible, the IBAR12-20ULTRA is the smart surge protection solution for a wide range of IT, industrial and commercial applications. It provides 3840 joules of surge protection for connected equipment—more joules mean more protection. The IBAR12-20ULTRA also features unique isolated filter banks that block disruptive EMI/RFI line noise interference and prevent mutual interference between connected components.

IBAR12-20ULTRA Feature Focus

Powerful Surge Protection and Performance Enhancement

More joules mean more protection! The IBAR12-20ULTRA's 3840-joule surge suppression rating and Isobar surge protection technology shield connected equipment from even the strongest surges. Robust surge suppression circuits with sine-wave tracking offer extreme levels of protection against the heaviest surge conditions exceeding IEEE 587 category A & B specifications and reducing 6,000V test surges to harmless levels under 35 volts. The IBAR12-20ULTRA provides 12 outlets (2 front NEMA 5-15R and 10 rear NEMA 5-20R) in a rugged all-metal 1U housing. EMI/RFI line noise filtering helps components perform at their peak by eliminating performance problems that can be caused by radio transmissions, fluorescent lighting and appliances, while promoting longer component life spans.

Exclusive Isolated Filter Banks

Devices connected to the same surge protector can interfere with one another's performance. The Isobar is the only surge protector with internal barriers, called isolated filter banks, that prevent disruptive line noise from causing computer lock-ups, data errors and similar problems. Isolated filter banks ensure that peripheral devices and appliances don't degrade the performance of computers and sensitive A/V components.

Built-In Diagnostic LEDs

Three diagnostic LEDs (LINE OK, LINE FAULT and PROTECTION PRESENT) show power and protection status at a glance, enabling you to recognize power problems before they affect your valuable equipment. The green LINE OK verifies that the IBAR12-20ULTRA is connected to a properly grounded wall outlet, while the red LINE FAULT LED indicates a grounding problem. The green PROTECTION PRESENT LED indicates that surge protection is available. If this green LED ever goes out, simply return the IBAR12-20ULTRA to Tripp Lite for a free replacement. An illuminated master switch provides one-touch power control over all components and a 20-amp circuit breaker provides overload protection. The switch is protected by a locking, transparent plastic cover to prevent accidental shut-off of power to connected equipment.

Versatile Installation Options

The IBAR12-20ULTRA is optimized for 1U rackmount installation with included mounting hardware. It is also suitable for 0U vertical installation in compatible rack enclosures, as well as wall-mount, workbench and under-counter mounting. A long 15-ft. cord with space-saving right-angle plug enables the IBAR12-20ULTRA to be connected to a distant wall outlet. Its rugged all-metal case is built to stand up to harsh environments such as warehouses, garages and factory floors.

Ultimate Peace of Mind

The IBAR12-20ULTRA comes with $25,000 Ultimate Lifetime Insurance coverage for connected equipment—guaranteed lifetime protection against damage due to surges, including direct lightning strikes. Ultimate Lifetime Insurance coverage begins the moment you purchase your Tripp Lite surge protector—no forms to fill out or send in! Additionally, all Tripp Lite surge protectors are backed by a lifetime product warranty and a rapid-response, no-questions-asked replacement policy. The IBAR12-20ULTRA also has a green, RoHS-compliant design.
