Frenchtown, NJ (PRWEB) June 26, 2008
Zero Surge, a leading U.S.A. manufacturer of surge protection solutions, including its award-winning TSC surge cancellation technology, is proud to announce that the company has been named an official hardware sponsor of the 2008 Dust-Off Championships - a Counter Strike 1.6 tournament to be held at the X3O Gaming Center in Rockville, M.D. As an official hardware sponsor, Zero Surge will provide its TSC surge cancelling power filters as prizes for the first-place teams in the remaining two qualifiers of the tournament as well as the finals.
"Today's array of gaming PCs are highly advanced machines and carry quite the price-tag," noted Rudy Harford, Chief Engineer of Zero Surge. "For the PC gamer who invests in one of these systems, it's important to understand that choosing a sub-standard surge suppressor to safeguard their equipment from the plug is like playing a game of Russian Roulette. Zero Surge's TSC surge cancellation technology gives gamers the protection necessary from power surges, which can happen thousands of times per year. Thanks to TSC's ability to provide 100 percent protection from power surges, gamers can focus on elevating their skills rather than worrying about whether or not their system will crash due to unreliable power."
TSC has totally reshaped the surge protection industry by establishing never before seen levels of performance and endurance. Offering unsurpassed power line protection that totally cancels damaging surge energy, TSC offers the protection that today's advanced gaming PCs require.
"We are very excited that Zero Surge has decided to become more involved in the gaming industry," said Nick Fitzsimmons, Vice President of Operations, X3O Emerging Technologies. "They have an excellent product that's a must-have for any gamer and which should be a key component to any PC or console setup. It's not uncommon for gamers to spend thousands of dollars on their equipment, and rightfully so, they need top of the line protection - that's where Zero Surge comes in."
Because Zero Surge's TSC technology 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, 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), used by the other manufacturers, limit the functionality of surge suppressors, only allowing them to operate over a very narrow voltage range. 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.
Zero Surge's 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.
