High-Def Broadcast Electronics Require High-Performance Surge Protection

Zero Surge takes surge protection to a new level with new TSC™ technology.

The need for high-performance surge protection has never been greater, especially as more and more local network affiliate stations make the transition to HD. Currently, there are approximately 30 local stations for all networks across the country, producing and broadcasting their newscasts in high-definition. For a local station, the transition to an HD newscast is an expensive and complex proposition. As local stations move forward with the transition to HD, it's imperative that they consider how best to protect the expensive and mission critical equipment upon which they will rely, especially from power surges. To take power surges out of the equation and to provide 100% protection for interconnected equipment, broadcast engineers can turn to Zero Surge and its revolutionary surge cancellation technology called WVR-TSC™.

"With the introduction of TSC™ we've virtually eliminated the risk of surge-related damage that could be devastating to broadcasters," noted Rudy Harford, Chief Engineer of Zero Surge. "The cost and the downtime associated with losing newly installed HD electronics because of irreparable damage caused by a power surge can be overwhelming. When compared to surge protection devices available on the market today, TSC™ is the only technology that totally cancels damaging surge energy," concluded Mr. Harford.

Offering unsurpassed power line protection that totally cancels damaging surge energy, TSC™ is set to reshape the surge protection industry by establishing never before seen levels of performance and endurance. Because TSC™ cancels damaging surge voltage at the output, terms like response time, clamping voltage, suppressed voltage, let-through voltage, Joule rating, maximum current rating, etc., are not relevant. Also, unlike common surge suppressors which utilize fixed clamping voltage components, WVR-TSC™ is fully dynamic, as it can operate over the entire 85 to 265 volt range. Fixed clamping voltage components, such as sacrificial metal oxide varistors (MOVs), limit the functionality of surge suppressors, only allowing them to operate over a very narrow voltage range, typically +/- 10%. In addition, Zero Surge's non-MOV filters preserve ground wire integrity, which when used with sensitive equipment, can help eliminate unwanted and annoying interference and damage.

For over 17 years, Zero Surge's patented products have been providing unequalled, unfailing powerline surge protection for numerous industries. Ranging from the convenient and economical 2R-Series, featuring two outlet units, to the more fully-featured 8R-Series, with eight outlets and a built-in circuit breaker to prevent overloading, Zero Surge power filters are rugged and built to withstand the most demanding electrical environments. 15 and 20 amp rack mounts are also available. Ensuring an added level of confidence, Zero Surge units are not sacrificial, will not wear out, and each one comes with a 10-year limited warranty and a Lifetime Service Agreement.

Zero Surge's WVR-TSC™ technology is protected under United States Patents #7,068,487 and #7,184,252 and is available for purchase by calling 1-800-996-6696. For more information on Zero Surge Inc., please visit http://www.ZeroSurge.com.

Zero Surge Inc. manufactures non-degrading power quality filters, certified by UL for safety, endurance and performance. In business since 1989, the company's patented filters eliminate the surge damage and equipment loss often experienced with sacrificial MOV (metal oxide varistor) type surge suppressors. Zero Surge Inc. has over 50 models accommodating a wide range of applications. Corporations, medical operations, universities, ocean vessels, the U.S. military and government, manufacturing plants, banks, utilities, and homeowners are just some of the customers relying on Zero Surge filters. The products do not contain sacrificial MOVs which wear out with use, can fail, and have caused fires.
