Torus Power Isolation Transformers Provide Optimal Power and Protection for Residential AV Systems


Torus Power will be exhibiting its full line of products at this year’s CEDIA Expo, September 6-8 in San Diego. There, Torus Power will showcase the benefits of using isolation transformers like the bestselling AVR and Wall Mount (WM) series of toroidal isolation transformers, as well as the smaller-sized TOT AVR, and the all-new POWERBLOCK (PB) series.

Isolation Transformers are critical in residential AV systems. These specialized units—not to be confused with power conditioners or surge protectors — de-couple and isolate electronic components from the power source to eliminate transients and deliver robust audio and a far more compelling image in home theaters, media rooms and other AV environments.

Custom-specified for each project, Torus Power’s products improve audio quality by dramatically lowering the noise floor while adding better dynamics, imaging, and bass. Video is noticeably crisper with brighter colors, deeper blacks, better contrast, and a more captivating overall image. Connected components are protected from surges, spikes, and brownouts, ensuring systems continue to perform as intended.

New for 2018: Torus Power POWERBLOCK Series Perfect for Smaller Systems

The POWERBLOCK (PB) Series is Torus Power’s new midrange line of isolation transformers that delivers clean, uninterrupted power to smaller AV systems or single components. Compact and affordable, POWERBLOCK provides unparalleled performance at a competitive price point.

Two models are available: The new POWERBLOCK PB 10 isolates outlet pairs to separate source components from power components for a cleaner signal, resulting in an exceptional audio-video experience. The compact POWERBLOCK PB 5 offers four total outlets for applications where it’s only necessary to protect a few components, such as a source, speakers, monitor, or projector.

The Torus Power AVR2 Series boasts the most feature-rich models in the Torus Power lineup of toroidal isolation transformers. AVR2 features enhanced Ethernet control and monitoring, Automatic Voltage Regulation technology that protects equipment from surges, spikes, brownouts, and other events caused by a variable grid. It also delivers a stable source of power regardless of outside line conditions—connected equipment is kept within the optimal operating range of 115–125 VAC. Balanced Inputs are available.

Torus Power’s award-winning TOT AVR packs all the features of the bestselling AVR series into a 2U chassis. Robust and powerful, the TOT AVR is rated at 4 amps and available at an affordable price for budget-conscious installations. Like the AVR2, the TOT AVR also features Torus Power’s proprietary Automatic Voltage Regulation technology.

Ideal for luxury estates, home cinemas, media rooms, recording studios, or anywhere rack space is not available or at a premium, the Wall Mount (WM) series packs the power and protection of Torus Power’s shelf and rack-mount units into a standalone unit. Wall Mount models do not need to be in the rack or even adjacent to the rest of the gear to provide connected systems a source of clean, stable, uninterrupted power.

To better understand the difference clean, uninterrupted power can make in AV systems and to learn why so many integration firms and consultants rely on Torus Power to power and protect their installations, visit us at CEDIA Expo in booth #1427.
