HDTV Supply, Inc. announces the fourth product in a new line of Surge Protectors and AC Conditioners designed principally for HDTV applications. If you have a rear projection, DLP, plasma, or LCD TVs you should seriously consider buying our Surge Protectors to protect your HDTV from power surges and filter parasite TV frequencies from impacting your TV image.
TV Surge Wall Tap Features:
Q: Why do I need a surge wall tap designed for HDTV applications?
- Listed and approved by Underwriter's Laboratories.
- Protection Indicator Lamp.
- HDTV / EMI / RFI / Noise Filtering.
- Rugged housing.
- One Year Warranty.
A: The frequencies inherent in HDTV applications are far higher than regular TV signals. 1080p and 720p are frequencies well above 140 MHz (140,000,000 cycles/sec) and poor cables, connectors and equipment can cause that to leak into your AC power wiring and impact your TV picture. These surge protectors low-pass filter completely eliminates all signals that shouldn't be there other than the 60 Hz AC signal to operate your equipment.
Q: What is a low-pass filter in a Surge Wall Tap?
A: An electronic filter that allows only the frequencies lower than a given point to be passed, eliminating all frequencies above it. The exact filter point in this HDTV-focused surge protector only allow the AC frequency of 60 Hz to pass and stop any garbage on the line above that frequency, including those
above 1080i frequencies that may have leaked in.
Q: What makes this surge wall tap different than what I can get elsewhere?
A: We have 3-MOV's (Metal Oxide Varistors) in our Surge Protectors which protect your expensive HDTV equipment. Other surge protectors either don't have a MOV or have only one. Your equipment is triple-protected!
Q: What is a MOV?
A: A MOV is a small electronic component which is used for voltage protection. The role of the MOV is to divert surge current. The MOV is put in place to clamp transient voltages thus diverting a potentially high surge current from entering
the main circuit causing component failure. This is done by applying the device across the circuit to be protected. At low voltages the MOV has a very high resistance, passing very little current. At high clamping voltages the MOV has very low resistance, causing the voltage surge to travel into the MOV
suppressing the applied voltage.
Q: Will I be able to see a difference in my HDTV
A: Maybe, maybe not, as it depends upon how good your equipment and cables are...now and in the future. We guess that 30% of the installed HD TV's need this Surge Wall Tap
for an improved picture quality and all need it to protect the equipment from power surges.
Protect your expensive home theater with this TV Surge Wall Tap designed especially for high definition equipment. Why not buy one today?
