A 20 Amp rated Neutrik latching input connector allows the 16A total capacity to be exploited with a suitable mains connection. The inlet is centrally positioned to minimise electrical and magnetic interaction between the two filter groups, which are individually protected by high quality magnetic circuit breakers.
The Substation Integra has two individual filter sections. There are four low to medium current outlets optimised for source components, and two high current outlets optimised for power hungry components such as amplifiers. All are served by a high capacity ISOL-8 Axis circuit which blocks any performance degrading DC present on the mains. All outputs are surge and spike protected. A custom wound choke also filters any noise present on the safety earth wiring.
The four outlets optimised for source components each have their own dedicated Transmodal filter. This prevents noise generated from each component within the system degrading the performance of another, reducing noise cross contamination between components. This phenomenon is potentially as damaging to sound and picture quality as noise attack from outside the system.
The two high current outlets are optimised for current hungry loads such as power amplifiers. The very low series resistance Transmodal topology means that high peak currents are passed effortlessly without dynamic compression, whilst still being effectively filtered.
