The PS-415-HGULTRA power strip from Tripp Lite, Chicago, features a patented fault-protection circuit that prevents power from reaching its outlets if a missing ground, reversed polarities, or an open line is detected in the wall outlet. Power is automatically restored when it verifies that no line faults exist. Additionally, the PS-415-HGULTRA does not require the user to reset the unit to restore power. The power strip also features outlet safety covers, a rugged, all-metal case, a 15-foot AC power cord with a NEMA 5-15P-HG hospital-grade plug, a resettable circuit breaker, and a switchless design to prevent accidental shutoff.
