The ETA-PD8 features noise filtering for unwanted Radio Frequency Interference (RFI) that is commonly introduced into AC lines by nearby radio transmitters or wireless products. EMI filters are also incorporated to reduce noise from Electromagnetic Interference (EMI) generated by items such as electric motors and switching power supplies.
Unstable AC Mains voltage is one of the main reasons for equipment failure. The amount of energy that can be injected into the power system can be immense with voltages reaching 6kV or amperage peaks of 3000A. These spikes are very fast and usually only last for a very short period of time. The ETA-PD8's circuitry is very fast and can suppress unwanted energy within a nanosecond response and sustain the suppression up to 2 milliseconds.
The ETA-PD8 was designed to be flexible with features that allow it to be used in a variety of applications. The ETA-PD8 can be used solely for protection against voltage surges or for AC distribution. If fuzzy video or frequent static pops occur, the AC power conditioning may eliminate or reduce those inconveniences.
