Islatrol BC Series


Islatrol BC Series

Surge, Transient, and Noise Protection on Incoming AC Power Line

Ideal protection against surges, transients and noise on the incoming AC power line.
Three-phase and Single-phase Active Tracking Filter

On-air transmission and studio production depend on CLEAN power. Yet in a nanosecond, power surges, spikes and transients can compromise the quality of  broadcasts, or worse, take them off the air altogether. That’s why broadcast operation sneed total power protection solutions from Emerson Network Power Surge Protection. Our Islatrol® BC Series Active Tracking Filters are designed to protect broadcast equipment from component degradation, malfunction and shortened life associated with AC power line spikes, transients, and noise.
