FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
There is no question that good quality power filtration will allow your equipment to perform closer to its maximum potential by only allowing clean power to its operating circuits. There have also been many reports that quality power filtration improves sound quality, and screen technology images are crisper and color definition is articulated. Our Dynamic Active Tracking filters have had improvements as high as 70% more when compared to Australian Industry Standards into other like Brands. Have a look at our Smart Power Station combination if you are after the ‘Rolls Royce” power conditioning solution.
A surprising number of the damaging and degrading spikes and surges occur without our knowledge. Many of them are even caused by other appliances and events in our home or office … such as (switches turning off and on, motors starting and stopping, etc). These events are taken care of 24/7 by your THOR product, the only possible loss being some of the joules of energy absorption available.
When the available number of joules have been used up, it will simply stop letting power through to your equipment. Should this happen simply contact us and we will advise from there.
The closer your home or office is to a direct lightning strike the greater the risk of equipment damage. As lightning travels at around 300,000 kms per second, nothing designed by man will stop a direct hit., however the odds of direct hit are quite rare and Thor products can certainly minimize the risk of damage. The degree of risk reduction is usually measured by the specifications., e.g. the faster the unit reacts combined with the amount of energy it can absorb. The unit of measurement is usually stated in Joules.
Thor will honor its warranty even if there is direct hit of lightning.
It can’t hurt but transformers convert AC incoming power to DC outgoing power and are considered low risk from most forms of power disturbances, so if you have spare outlets on your board by all means use your filter protection … but it is certainly not a priority.
Note: Thor products discharge antenna and data/network borne spikes directly to earth not through the common earth on the power board as is the practice with most other manufacturers.
A surge diverter does exactly that, it diverts surges and transients direct to earth as they enter the building. It will not prevent noise pollution and it will not stop surges and transients which occur after it.
There are two areas that most transients originate from: 1. The power grid network of supply, prior to reaching your building and your earth diverter is good for these and 2. Electrical shorts, faults, and noise pollution from within your building. This is very common and is the major source of dirty or polluted power, something today’s IC chip and motherboard incorporated equipment hates.
THOR models’ filter banks isolate groups of valuable equipment from the rest of the dwellings supply and go even further on the ‘A’ and ‘B’ series isolating individual appliances from each other at filter level. Of course there is the added advantage to property renter when they move, as they can take their protection with them.
