Get complete protection for sensitive devices and prevent power disruption with Tripp Lite’s Isolator IS1000 Isolation Transformer. Featuring an internal isolation transformer with Faraday Shield, the IS1000 completely isolates equipment from line noise that can cause incremental but devastating equipment damage. Its 680-joule surge suppression rating protects equipment from surges and spikes caused by utility power disruptions and the operation of nearby equipment on the same circuit. Its 6-ft. power cord allows for flexibility during installation, while its built-in circuit breaker prevents dangerous circuit overloads. Its 1000-watt capacity allows it to be used with a variety of sensitive equipment. Its 4 widely spaced NEMA 5-15R outlets accommodate bulky transformers, and its lighted power switch offers convenient, one-touch power control. For peace of mind, the IS1000 features a rugged, all-metal housing and comes with a 2-year warranty.
Isolation Transformers explained!
Adequate isolation between a power source and the user of electronic equipment ensures the safety of that equipment. Given the high voltages that exist in modern electronic equipment, proper isolation protects an operator from contact with excessive electrical energy should a short circuit occur in the equipment. Isolation transformers have represented a traditional solution for providing high isolation in electronic circuitry. Isolation Transformers are also one of the best solutions for structures or areas that have electrically noisy grounds or where isolation is required.
