Richard Gray’s Power Company (RGPC) continues its quest to protect A/V equipment and enhance the performance of consumers’ home theaters by debuting its RGPC TV Guard.
The RGPC TV Guard is an in-line device that plugs into the Coax cable line to protect sensitive video gear from surges, spikes and electromagnetic or radio frequency interference that can cause damage or negatively affect performance. With a response time of less than 100 nanoseconds, the TV guard provides lightning quick response time when harmful anomalies or lightning strikes pass through the Coax line.
An extremely low insertion (signal) loss means that more of the signal actually makes it to the TV and more signal strength means a better picture, the company says. The TV Guard is ideally suited to shield costly HDTV receivers, CATV set-top converters, cable modems, and any other device that has a coax connection from potentially damaging surges and interference.
The small, sturdy plastic box and hand-crafted internals can absorb over 600 catastrophic surges of over 500 Amps before a replacement is needed, says RGPC. The TV Guard provides the strongest available protection for narrow-band RF signals, much better than gas discharge cells typically used in the universal/broadband coax surge arrestors.
RGPC TV Guard has an MSRP of $89 and is shipping now. For more information, visit www.richardgrayspowercompany.com.
