WARNING – Rooftop Antennas and Satellite Dishes

If you use rooftop antennas, satellite dishes, or any other rooftop hardware that connects to your AVU1500, make sure that all the wires leading from these components are properly grounded. This will protect against voltage surges from lightning strikes or static charges.

WARNING – Lightning Storm Protection

3

Important Safety Instructions

Although your AVU1500 is built to withstand large power surges, we cannot guarantee that it will protect all of your equipment in the

event of a large lightning storm. In the event of a lightning storm, it is best to unplug your AVU1500 from the wall. Once you have done this, there is no need to unplug any of the equipment that is connected to

the AVU1500.

WARNING – Water and other Liquids: Shock Hazard

Do not use this product with aquariums or other water-relatedproducts. Use indoors and in dry locations only. Do not operate the AVU1500 if any liquid is spilled on or in the unit. Failure to follow these guidelines could result in serious bodily injury or death.

WARNING – Cleaning

Always turn the AVU1500 main power off and unplug the AVU1500 before cleaning. It is only necessary to clean the AVU1500 with a clean dry cloth or duster. Do not use any cleaning solutions, sprays, or water.

WARNING – No User-ServiceableParts Inside

If for any reason your AVU1500 is malfunctioning, do not attempt to repair or dismantle the unit in any way. Unplug the unit and consult this User Manual for warranty and service contact information.

WARNING – Power Cord Safety

Do not route the AVU1500’s AC power cord near heat sources. This could damage the power cord and cause it to malfunction, creating a shock hazard.

Do not route the AVU1500’s AC power cord in heavy foot-trafficareas where it could create a trip hazard (hallways, doorways, across room).

If the power cord is frayed, ripped, cut, or damaged in any way, please discontinue use immediately and refer to the warranty section of this User Manual for instructions.

CAUTION - Proper Ventilation Required

The AVU1500 produces heat and you should allow at least a one-inchspace on all sides to ensure proper ventilation. Do not block the exhaust fan on the rear of the unit.

Features

The AVU1500 has the right combination of innovative features to provide you with the best home theater experience.

Easy Power On and Off

Some of your home theater equipment should always receive power in order to maintain settings (e.g., clock) or to stay in standby mode in order to behave properly (e.g., record TV shows). Alternatively, some of

your home theater equipment can and should be turned off when not in use (e.g., amplifiers and subwoofers). However, turning these devices on and off one-by-oneday in and day out can not only be inconvenient, but potentially damaging if not turned on in the correct order or with the right timing.

Your AVU1500 enables you to control which power outlets will always receive power (“always on”) and which can be switched on and off

Features

(“switched”). Switched outlets can be powered on and off locally via the front-panel“Switched” button, or remotely via another home theater component. For example, you can use your preamplifier (preamp) as

a “remote trigger” so that when you turn it on, your AVU1500 will automatically power on all the switched outlets; when you turn your preamp off, the AVU1500 will power off all the switched outlets. It’s much easier to turn your preamp on and automatically trigger your amplifier and subwoofer to power on (as well as any other device plugged into a switched outlet), instead of having to turn on (and off) each and every device one by one.

Pure Performance

Frequent electrical disturbances, both natural and man-made,degrade the quality of power supplied to your home theater system. Ordinary household AC power that is delivered to your home is also polluted with “noise” from many sources within your home, including digital components and household appliances. Also, noise can be created by components and contaminate other connected equipment. All this degraded power quality and noise can deteriorate the performance of your home theater system.

Your AVU1500’s advanced Phase 4 PureFilter Circuitry is optimized to remove electrical noise and provide clean and clear power to all of your valuable digital, audio, video, and high-currentequipment.

The multiphase PureFilter Circuitry also provides true isolation between audio, video, digital, and high-currentcomponents. This isolation prevents noise created by components that are already connected to your AVU1500 from contaminating other connected equipment.

Pure Protection

Your AVU1500 provides outstanding surge protection and power conditioning. This protection not only saves your equipment, but also helps extend the life of your equipment.

Most people don’t realize that their components are subject to many power disturbances everyday. Even small electrical surges and spikes can damage your sensitive equipment over time. The AVU1500 has a

substantial 8000 joules of surge protection to protect your valuable home theater system from these dangerous conditions.

As you may know, your AC power source is not the only threat to the safety of your equipment. This is why the Belkin PureAV AVU1500 has four sets of coaxial connections to protect your coaxial-cablelines, as well as telephone jacks to protectPay-Per-Viewlines and broadband Ethernet jacks to protect data lines that stream digital content to your home theater system.

The AVU1500’s unique Automatic Voltage Regulation (AVR) technology automatically provides clean, stable power by increasing low or decreasing high voltage without the aid of the battery, keeping it within a safe range of 110 to 120 volts. However, in the event input voltages reach dangerous

Features

levels, your AVU1500 has Advanced Overvoltage Protection, which automatically disconnects power from your equipment and restores power automatically when the voltage returns to a safe level.

Pure Enjoyment

One part of enjoyment involves spending more time using your system instead of setting it up! However, brownouts and blackouts can cause your system to lose complex settings, and ultimately damage your valuable equipment along with the overall quality of your home

theater experience.

Your AVU1500 is equipped with a battery to provide backup power in the event of power loss or an outage. The battery-backupfeature enables you to continue enjoying your movies and music without interruption caused by brownouts or momentary blackouts. For longer blackouts, you may have limited time to continue watching and listening to your system, but the goal in this scenario is to preserve your system settings and to allow your recording equipment to continue recording so you don’t miss your favorite shows (e.g., your DVR can keep recording).

Pure Intelligence

Your AVU1500 has been designed with the right combination of SmartStage solutions, enabling you to better see and control the shutdown of your home theater equipment during a power outage.

Stage Shutdown

In the event of a power outage, your AVU1500’s battery will automatically supply backup power to all the equipment connected to its rear-panelpower outlets. However, like any battery there is a limited supply of power. So, the AVU1500 shuts down your equipment in stages. Each time a stage is shut down, battery power consumption is reduced, thereby prolonging the remaining supply of battery power to your most critical devices:

If you prefer to avoid the staged shutdown procedure, then you have the ability to override it and supply power to all the rear power outlets until the usable battery power is depleted or the power comes back on (whichever comes first).

Stage Time

You have the ability to see how much approximate battery-backuptime each stage has. You can check these times before and during a power outage. The “Stage Time” button on the front control panel enables you to cycle through the estimatedbattery-backuptimes.

Of course, the estimated times are based on which components are on at that moment and how much power each is consuming. Changes in your home theater system’s power consumption will affect battery-backuptime. Your AVU1500 intelligently estimates these times knowing and taking planned changes into account: It knows how much power is being consumed by each stage of itsthree-stageshutdown sequence. Unplanned changes (e.g., if you manually turn things on or off) are handled as they happen: Changes can be detected and your AVU1500 will recalculate estimated remaining battery time.
