Isolation transformer-based power components maker Torus Power has developed the TOT AVR Series of toroidal isolation power transformers, with models also available for use in Continental Europe (TOT AVR CE) and the United Kingdom (TOT AVR UK).
The TOT AVR Series builds upon Torus Power’s compact and competitively priced TOT Series of Toroidal Isolation Transformer products, but adds Automatic Voltage Regulation (AVR) to the feature set with a new, lower price point.
Voltage sags, power line surges, and brownouts can stress and shorten equipment life. Torus Power TOT AVR isolation transformers address this with Automatic Voltage Regulation technology that provides stable voltage to keep equipment running in the optimal range of +/- 10V for international voltages, and 115V AC to 125V AC for North America. To accomplish this, TOT AVR continuously monitors incoming voltage to detect high- and low-voltage conditions, and then instantaneously triggers compensating circuitry to ensure the voltage powering equipment is always operating at optimal levels.
“The all-new TOT AVR is a real breakthrough for audio/video enthusiasts,” said Kevin Main, VP of sales and marketing at Torus Power. “With the new lower price point, we’ve made our isolation transformers with automatic voltage regulation an affordable solution for anyone looking to improve the overall performance of their AV system.”
The TOT AVR features Plitron’s NBT noise-filtering technology to restore incoming power to its clean original state, delivering a supply of high-quality audio and video regardless of powerline conditions. The TOT AVR series also provides low source impedance to connected components and devices, enabling high instantaneous current delivery.
The Torus Power TOT AVR series will make its U.S. debut at booth 7024 during CEDIA Expo 2015, held October 14–17 at the Kay Bailey Hutchinson Convention Center in Dallas, TX.
Torus Power is a Crestron Integrated Partner, a member of Savant's Partner in Excellence Program, and is now also integrated with the Ihiji Invision network management platform, which gives integrators the ability to power cycle, reboot, and control settings on Torus Power products remotely.
