Interferences, or voltage peaks, arise on the network when switching an electrical device on or off. However, the interferences can also be induced by industry in the neighbourhood or elevators in the building, etc. Computers, refrigerators, washing machines, dryers, power drills, and several other devices connected to the power grid can cause interferences.
Large interferences are of course audible but several smaller disturbances also interfere with the equipment. These smaller interferences cannot be heard. They can sometimes create bugs on some digital devices (CD player, DVD, etc.).
ESSENTIAL AUDIO TOOLS PULSE PROTECTOR: CHARACTERISTICS
The Essential Audio Tools Pulse Protector is a robust assembled plug with components that convert each pulse above 250V into thermal energy. In addition, it protects your equipment by monitoring the phase and neutral, phase and earth, and neutral and earth circuits.
However, the Essential Audio Tools Pulse Protector is not a true filter since all signals under 250V are not restricted. It does not even restrict the dynamics nor the bandwidth of the system.
ESSENTIAL AUDIO TOOLS PULSE PROTECTOR: USE
It is quite simple to use this Essential Audio Tools Pulse Protector. There are two possibilities:
- You know the origin of the interference: in this case, place the Pulse Protector as close as possible to the device that produces the pulses, preferably in the same (wall) socket. Every centimetre away from the source will make this Essential Audio Tools Pulse Protector less efficient.
- If you do not know the origin of the interferences, you can only prevent them from reaching your audio system by placing the Pulse Protector as close as possible to the devices you want to protect.
It is possible to place several Pulse Protectors in the same area. They cannot harm your Hi-Fi system and do not consume energy. Wherever you place a Pulse Protector, you will reduce or even completely eliminate pulses!
ESSENTIAL AUDIO TOOLS PULSE PROTECTOR: TESTING AND LISTENING
The Essential Audio Tools Pulse Protector eliminates peaks and spikes on the mains supply and protects your equipment from surges.
It is also important to take into account an improvement of the nuance, a better precision, and a lower noise level. Franck
