Torus Power Showcasing its AVR2 Power Conditioner Series at CES

Offering Full-Featured, Versatile Power Conditioning and Surge Suppression for Large-Scale Audio Video Installations

TORONTO, ON, CANADA and LAS VEGAS, NEVADA, USA (2014 International CES - Venetian Towers, Suite #34-210) - Jan. 6, 2014 - Torus Power, a subsidiary of Plitron Manufacturing, will be showing several models within its AVR2 Custom Series toroidal isolation power conditioning and surge suppression lineup designed for large-scale custom installations such as studios, consumer home theater and audio system installations, and other mission-critical applications.


Torus' AVR2 Custom Series includes the AVR2 20 BAL, the AVR2 45 BAL, the AVR2 60 BAL, the AVR2 75 BAL, and the AVR2 90 BAL. Wall-mounted versions are also available in 45A, 60A, 75A and 90A configurations. All are full-featured state-of-the-art power conditioners and voltage stabilizers that protect connected components against voltage sags, brownouts and surges. They also continuously monitor incoming electrical service mains to detect high and low line conditions, and then seamlessly and instantaneously trigger compensating voltage stabilization circuitry to ensure the voltages powering equipment are kept within the optimal operating range.

A highly versatile solution, the AVR2 Custom Series is designed for 240V input, but can also be configured with 208V inputs for 3-phase systems. International models featuring a variety of voltages and frequencies can also be supplied. All models feature automatic voltage regulation, surge suppression, noise filtration, isolation from the main electrical grid, remote monitoring and control, and high levels of dynamic current that will satisfy even the most demanding, power-hungry AV systems. All of the four AVR2 Custom Series models feature individually addressable outlet zones - up to five individual zones in 15 amp and 20 amp models and up to eight in the 60 amp and 100 amp models. For superior protection, a robust, redundant surge suppression topology is offered across all models.

The scheduling feature on the AVR2 Custom Series models allows automatic control of any outlet zone according to a user-defined schedule. Scheduling parameters allow for a one-week repeating schedule with up to six events per day for each controlled zone. Each zone can also be operated in real time via a web browser, and the schedule is maintained even when the Internet connection is lost, so long as system power is maintained. An auto-reboot outlet is dedicated to cycling routers and modems anytime the Internet connection is lost. Remote monitoring and control and fault email notification are also included.
