Isolation Transformer-Based Power Conditioner - Superior line noise reduction and spike suppression

Model Number: IS500


  • Complete line isolation, noise filtering and surge suppression is ideal for sensitive equipment
  • 500 watts, 4 outlets, 6-ft. power cord
  • Compliant with the Federal Trade Agreements Act (TAA) for GSA Schedule purchases

Tripp Lite Isolator series isolation transformer-based power conditioners offer complete line isolation, continuous noise filtering and enhanced normal and common mode surge suppression. Internal low-impedance isolation transformer component with Faraday Shield offers 100% isolation from the input AC line. Secondary neutral to ground bonding eliminates common mode noise, providing an isolated ground reference for sensitive equipment and an inexpensive alternative to the installation of dedicated circuits and site electrical upgrades. Removes EMI/RFI noise, utility switching transients, background spikes generated by other on-site loads and utility or lightning related surge conditions. Additional surge suppression components placed at both the line input and transformer output combined with full line isolation offers continuous line filtering of a full range of power line noise in all modes. Continuous transformer filtering with no wearable parts uniquely reduces surges in the worst of power environments to harmless levels. Reduces 6000V IEEE C62.41 Cat A&B ring wave and combination wave test surges to only 0.5V common mode. Model IS500 offers 500 watts capacity with 4 widely spaced output receptacles, a 6-ft power cord, circuit breaker overload protection and lighted power switch. Rugged all-metal unit housing ships ready for upright tower or wallmount placement in industrial, medical, office or network environment.

Heat, Operating Temperature Range

I've noticed this unit tends to run pretty warm, regardless of load (even with no load at all). Is that normal?

Does the unit have a maximum operating temperature?

Answers

Answer: 
As the internals of the IS500 are going to work constantly the unit will produce some heat.

The maximum operating tmperature would be along the lines of what our UPS systems can support which is +32 to +104 degrees Fahrenheit / 0 to +40 degrees Celsius.

Voltage Step-Up

I've noticed that the output voltage from my unit is a few percent higher than the input voltage. For example, right now the voltage at the wall outlet is 122, and the output from the transformer is 127. Is that normal?

Answer: 
The IS500 provides a nominal 120 vac output but will let through a voltage upwards of 130 vac.

Transformer with UPS

When using an isolation transformer with a UPS, is it recommended to connect the UPS to the transformer, or the transformer to the UPS? Does the topology of the UPS affect this?
