ISE 2015: SurgeX Stamps Out Surges at ISE 2015

Advanced Series Mode surge elimination technology offers significant advantages over traditional MOV-based surge suppressors and is primed for distribution to systems integrators in the global market.

Amsterdam RAI, NL - Integrated Systems Europe 2015 - February 10-12 - Stand 7-T180 -

At ISE 2015, ESP/SurgeX, the only manufacturer with surge elimination technology, will showcase a variety of mains protection products to the European market at ISE. The SurgeX portfolio features patented Advanced Series Mode surge elimination technology implemented across a range of form factors, including: rack mount, space saver, standalone, low-profile and branch circuits.

The SurgeX philosophy originated from the idea that simply suppressing a surge is not enough. To fully protect valuable equipment, surges must be eliminated. Traditional surge suppression units, such as the conventional MOV-based technologies, pass through some of the surge energy to the equipment. This let-through produces harmful side effects such as earth contamination or common-mode disturbances. To deal with this, SurgeX developed its patented Advanced Series Mode® Surge Elimination Technology to properly protect A/V equipment from AC surges and electrical transients that can disrupt sound quality and digital performance. This, along with other proprietary technologies such as Impedance Tolerant® EMI/RFI filtering, SurgeX ICE® inrush current elimination, and COVUS® Catastrophic Over/Under Voltage Shutdown, differentiate SurgeX products from all other power conditioning products.

While many believe surges come from events like lightening or blown fuses, more commonly they originate from inside a building from HVAC units, office equipment or other electronics cycling on. The surges happen repeatedly over the course of a day and often flow unchecked because traditional power suppression products suppress and then shunt surges to the neutral or ground using an MOV derivative. The voltage they allow to pass on to the connected equipment-known as let-through voltage-can be in excess of 600 volts, and causes the attached diode to fail dramatically when hit with a surge. While those levels may not be catastrophic, they will produce heat in the equipment. Heat buildup accelerates wear, degrades performance and shortens the lifespan of electronics.

"We've built a product portfolio that gives integrators a logical solution to properly protect audio video equipment," said Shannon Townley, president of SurgeX. "We understand that dealers, installers, and business owners need a product that's going to provide non-sacrificial protection and flexible compatibility to offer the confidence that they're always protected, and that's what they receive with SurgeX products."

Dealers who want to experience SurgeX's surge elimination technology can visit ISE 2015 Stand 7-T180. SurgeX will also be conducting interviews for potential distributors at the show.
