Hybrid Surge and Noise Suppressors

Brooks Power Hybrid Surge and Noise Suppressors are US Navy approved and comply with CID #A-A-50622, MIL-STD-1399, MIL-STD-16400 and MIL-STD-454. They are also ETL listed to UL Standard 1449 (Transient Voltage Surge Suppressors). Our 3-stage protection eliminates electrical disturbances like power surges, spikes, line noise – transmitted via wall outlets and power strips – to ensure reliable working equipment and accurate data.

Hybrid Surge and Noise Suppressors

A Surge Suppressor, also known as a Surge Protector, is a device that is designed to protect computers and other electronic devices from damaging power surges and line noise common on AC, telephone/modem, network and coax lines. A Surge Suppressor usually includes multiple outlets and a power cord, allowing you to connect multiple components to a single power outlet.

Power Surges Definition: A brief increase in the voltage on an AC, telephone/modem, network or coax line. Line Noise Definition: Distortion of AC, telephone/modem, network or coax line voltage caused by Electromagnetic Interference (EMI) and/or Radio Frequency Interference (RFI).

What Causes Damaging Power Surges and Line Noise?

In this power-hungry computer age, utility power systems are often pushed beyond their capacity, resulting in unstable, unreliable power for consumers. Overburdened power grids can generate powerful surges as they switch between sources, or generate “rolling surges” when power is momentarily disrupted. Local sources can also generate surges. For example, if your neighbor starts up an electrical motor or the office on the floor below you blows a fuse, a surge could result. In addition, lightning strikes, wind, freezing rain, wildlife and other environmental causes can send a large surge along power lines, damaging equipment that is plugged into nearby AC and phone outlets. Line noise is typically generated by turning on other power-drawing devices connected to the same electrical system. Turning on florescent lights, laser printers or appliances, working near a radio station, using a power generator or simply working during a lightning storm can all introduce line noise into connected equipment. Ever notice the “snow” on your TV when you use a blender or a hair dryer? That’s line noise being sent back into your electrical system and into your TV.
