SurgeX Adds the XN120 to the Eliminator Series

Saturday, May 22nd, 2010

The XN120 NEMA solution frees up valuable rack space, eliminates unsightly wires, and protects the most demanding AV system.

Zebulon, NC – May 19, 2010 – SurgeX, the only manufacturer of AC surge elimination and power conditioning products, announces the XN120, the perfect protection solution for multi-circuit residential AV systems where space is at a premium. This compact 120 Volt / 80 Amp unit is hardwired as a subpanel at the service panel or the equipment room and is designed to provide failsafe protection required for multiple circuits

Engineered with professional grade Advanced Series Mode® Surge Elimination Technology and Impedance Tolerant® EMI/RFI noise filtering, the XN120 is the only NEMA enclosure protection product in the market that eliminates surges and transients that can degrade AV system performance and shorten service life. The XN120 frees up valuable rack space and eliminates the need for individual powerline conditioners. In most installations, there are panels located in each room that, until now, have needed to be protected separately. But, with the XN120, there is no need to protect each individual panel with a powerline conditioner at every site. When the panels are connected to a single circuit and fed through the XN120, the SurgeX unit will protect each panel on that circuit. There’s no in wall extension cords, nor individual units to install and maintain. One XN120 circuit will protect an average of 8 panels. In addition, every outlet powered by the XN120 is protected even though there is no PLC at the rack.  (more…)

Audience Now Shipping Upgraded Adept Response Power Conditioners With Improved Components and Performance

Monday, May 17th, 2010

San Marcos, CA, May 3, 2010 – Audience, a company dedicated to designing and manufacturing ultimate-performance audio/video equipment, is currently shipping its upgraded Adept Response aR2-TS, aR6-TS and aR12-TS high-resolution power conditioners. The three models now incorporate Teflon capacitors with mono crystal copper wire leads, and a large ground plane with all wiring secured by heavy-duty welded connectors in a star-ground configuration.

John McDonald, president of Audience pointed out: “The quality of the AC power going into an A/V system is critical. All audio/video electronics, in essence, are simply modulators of the AC power they receive. This means that the performance the components deliver can only be as good as the quality of the AC power.”

The AC coming out of a wall outlet may contain a significant amount of RF noise – which can then make its way into an A/V system and cause problems such as reduced resolution and sonic purity, an audible “haze” in the sound, and degradation of the video image. The Audience Adept Response power conditioners overcome the liabilities of poor AC power through the use of sophisticated filtering circuitry, premium-quality components and optimized component layout.
