TRENDnet today announces the availability of the 200Mbps Powerline AV Adapter with Bonus Outlet, model TPL-304E, and the 200Mbps Powerline AV Adapter with Bonus Outlet Kit. Each device features a built in electrical outlet and embedded power saving technology, which reduces power consumption by up to 70% in standby mode.
The 200Mbps Powerline AV Adapter with Bonus Outlet creates a secure high speed building-wide network from any electrical outlet. When the TPL-304E is plugged in, consumers don't lose the use of an outlet-an additional electrical socket is built into the front of the adapter. Connect one adapter to your network, and plug another adapter into any outlet on your electrical system for instant high speed network access. Connect adapters quickly using the convenient one-touch connect button. Install up to eight Powerline adapters in different rooms for building wide networking.
Products such as coffee makers, washing machines, microwaves, vacuums, and other household appliances create electrical power spikes. An advanced electrical noise filter maintains high performance signal strength, thereby significantly boosting performance. LED displays convey device status for easy power management and troubleshooting. Advanced AES encryption secures your network.
The 200Mbps Powerline AV Adapter with Bonus Outlet comes with a three year limited warranty and will be available from TRENDnet's online and retail partners later this month.
The 200Mbps Powerline AV Adapter Kit with Bonus Outlet comes with two TPL-304E units and a three year limited warranty. The TPL-304E2K is currently shipping to TRENDnet's online and retail partners.
"When you plug in a TPL-304E into the wall you don't lose an electrical outlet, since it has a bonus outlet built right in," stated Sonny Su, Technology Director for TRENDnet. "Power saving technology reduces electrical consumption in standby mode by up to 70%. Since Powerline networking products are always plugged in and turned on, the embedded power saving technology greatly reduces power consumption."
