The SHOKKED Absorber is a three in one device. Using multiple components in a synergistic flow. Each component actively protecting and extending the life of the other technologies. The SHOKKED Absorber has three functions: Whole House Surge Protection- 10 MOV’s creating a 6 way protection. L1-L2, L1-N, L2-N, L1-G, L2-G, N-G Harmonic EMI / RFI Noise Filtering reduction – reducing the harmonic wave noise in the electrical system. Reducing heat, extending life and a small energy savings. Power Factor Correction – 40uf capacitor to correct the distance between the voltage and current curve. Reducing heat, extending the life of electronics and a small energy savings. Creating cleaner, more usable power for all your electronics in the home.
WHY USE AN EMI/RFI FILTER? In the broadest terms, EMI and RFI amount to interferences of an electrical or magnetic nature that can degrade how well a piece of electronic equipment performs or the quality of the signal it receives — which is responsible for its nickname “noise.” From narrowband man-made EMI, such as the hum often heard from power lines, to natural broadband interference like solar flares and lightning strikes, our world is filled with electromagnetic interferences that can range from random and sporadic to continuous and constant. In addition to external forms of EMI, there are a number of ways electronic devices can produce their own EMI through activities such as generating impedance, or an opposition to the current flowing through a given device. Besides the electronic noise present on signal and power lines, a good deal of high-frequency noise is produced by devices such as electronic appliances, controls, motors, inverters, power supplies and microprocessors. Sensitive devices, such as computers, medical equipment and military equipment, need to function free of interference for purposes that are often of a mission-critical nature.
