Bryston BIT15 Transformer power isolation transformer with Series Mode Surge Protection.
The Bryston BIT15 Power Conditioner has been designed as a complete power isolation unit which is ideal for protecting your equipment while smoothing out the current running through your home theatre and home audio system. The BIT15 provides true isolation, along with low source impedance, and large enough instantaneous current for today’s most sophisticated and powerful audio amplifiers. Protect your system against diminished resolution and dimensionality in audio playback and video display.
Bryston PIUs (Power Isolation Units) combine the best surge suppression with unique toroidal transformer technologies from PLITRON to provide the ultimate in AC power conditioning and protection for sensitive audio and video equipment applications. PIUs use ZeroSurge® patented series-mode surge removal filters to absorb dangerous voltage surges and safely dissipate them without using failure-prone MOVs (metal oxide varistors). Also, unlike MOV-based protection, voltage surges are not shunted to ground.
Isolation is combined with proven proprietary technologies from PLITRON in the over-sized toroidal transformer. NBT works as a low pass filter using the controlled leakage inductance and capacitances within the transformer to cancel common mode and differential mode noise. LoNo technology has been used for years by high-end audio companies who demand silent transformers. Imin technology reduces inrush currents. UST provides additional common mode filtering using a highly efficient faraday screen.
Low-impedance output with balanced high-power primary input provides the most unconstrained, yet protected, energy source available to your equipment.
