New Torus POWERBLOCK Isolation Transformers Target Midrange Market at InfoComm 2018

Versatile, lightweight POWERBLOCK lineup showcases significant benefits of a stable, clean power foundation for small and mid-sized commercial AV systems

Torus Power, maker of uncompromising, clean, isolation transformer-based power components for AV systems, will unveil a its new POWERBLOCK (PB) Series of toroidal isolation transformers at InfoComm 2018, June 6–8 at the Las Vegas Convention Center, booth N2834. With the introduction of the versatile, compact, yet rugged POWERBLOCK transformers, Torus Power brings a unique midrange product line that improves AV system performance and provides protection for small yet sophisticated commercial installations.

“We are thrilled to be back at InfoComm. It means that with the proliferation of higher performance technology like hi-res audio and 4K+ video, clients are demanding perfection from their equipment investment,” says Kevin Main, COO and President of Torus Power. “That perfection is attainable if you have a solid power foundation that is completely isolated from the power supply. The difference is something you can see and hear in everything from recording studios to small conference rooms to large venues.”

Isolated Components Deliver Superior Audio and Video Quality and Protection POWERBLOCK delivers clean, uninterrupted power to commercial AV systems that don’t require the brawn of full-size Torus AVR or WM units. However, the PB Series still includes some of the very best of Torus tech. Time-tested technology such as surge suppression and noise filtering through proprietary narrow bandwidth technology (NBT) allow sophisticated audio-visual components to deliver superior performance. Audio comes alive with a lower noise floor, better dynamics, imaging and bass, and video is notably crisper with brighter colors, deeper blacks, and a more compelling overall image.

The new POWERBLOCK PB 10 isolates outlet pairs to separate source components from power components for a cleaner signal, resulting in an enhanced audio video experience. PB 10 models are designed for 60 Hz markets using 120V and boast a small footprint weighing just 35 lbs, making them easy to fit in any system.

For smaller applications where it’s only necessary to protect a few source components, speakers, a TV, or a projector, the POWERBLOCK PB 5 offers enough outlets to plug in the most expensive AV equipment in a system, protecting these components and improving the audio video quality within a limited budget. Like its slightly larger counterpart, the PB 5 operates at 60 Hz with an input voltage of 120V, and weighs just 25 lbs.

Protecting AV Investments
High-end projects demand the ultimate in power protection. Integrators can’t afford to leave equipment unprotected and vulnerable to harmful power conditions. But smaller systems also represent a significant investment. That’s why even POWERBLOCK uses a toroidal isolation transformer to physically decouple the equipment from the power supply, delivering safer, cleaner power for sophisticated AV systems with a substantially lower noise floor. Resulting performance benefits are noticeable, compelling, and appealing.

“We’ve taken a virtual ‘shrink ray’ to our big and heavy toroidal transformer, enabling us to offer a lightweight, compact unit that powers and protects AV components in applications where our full-size power products aren’t necessary,” says Main. “The benefits to isolating power for a clean signal to dramatically improve audio and video performance are well-documented. Now even smaller home theater systems and two-channel audio applications can enjoy enhanced performance and superior protection.”

InfoComm 2018: Torus Power Isolation Transformers Provide Significant Performance Benefits for Commercial AV Systems

Torus Power’s InfoComm exhibit will showcase the dramatic improvement a stable power foundation can make in AV systems of all sizes

Toronto, ON, Canada (May 2018) Torus Power will showcase the performance benefits toroidal isolation brings to commercial applications during InfoComm 2018, taking place June 6–8 at the Las Vegas Convention Center in booth #N2834. By exhibiting at InfoComm, Torus confirms its commitment to the commercial market with proven toroidal technology for commercial applications of any size. There, Torus will showcase its full line of toroidal isolation transformers, from the powerful and robust Wall Mount (WM) line to the versatile, lightweight, and compact POWERBLOCK (PB) units.

Today’s Commercial AV Systems Need Clean, Consistent Power to Perform
In commercial applications, an effective power foundation is key to leveling the playing field and making sure that any equipment in your system is performing at its optimal level.

“Having isolated, clean power is like building a good foundation for a property. If you don’t start with power and build upon that, then your system will never perform to its maximum capabilities. It’s just that simple,” says Kevin Main, President and COO of Torus Power. “Whether it’s a mission critical environment like a recording studio,a large-scale integration like digital signage, and something as simple as a conference room, integrators should make sure they are giving the equipment they install the best possible chance to perform to itorus-power-infocomm 2018ts best capability.”

Built in a variety of configurations to accommodate the needs of commercial AV applications of virtually any size, Torus Power delivers clean, uninterrupted power for today’s most demanding projects.Time-tested technology such as Series Mode Surge Suppression and noise filtering through proprietary Narrow Bandwidth Technology (NBT) allow sophisticated audio-visual components to deliver superior performance. Audio comes alive with a lower noise floor, better dynamics, imaging and bass, and video is notably crisper with brighter colors, deeper blacks, and a more compelling overall image.

Additionally, when installing expansive and expensive systems as typically found in commercial spaces, integrators can’t afford to leave equipment unprotected and vulnerable to harmful power conditions. That’s why Torus Power uses a toroidal isolation transformer to physically decouple the equipment from the power supply, delivering safer, cleaner power for sophisticated AV systems with a substantially low noise floor. Resulting performance benefits are noticeable, compelling, and appealing.

For instance, John Mayfield, owner of renowned Nashville studio Mayfield Mastering, recently installed a Torus Power unit and noticed significant improvements in the audio quality of his $80,000 powered speaker system. “I built the room in 2003, and it has never sounded better. I don’t know of any system that’s better at this point,” says Mayfield.

At InfoComm 2018, Torus will demonstrate a wide variety of toroidal isolation transformers for applications across vertical commercial markets including education, house of worship, corporate, government, entertainment, retail, broadcast studios, healthcare and more. These lines include:

POWERBLOCK (PB) Series – The new Torus POWERBLOCK (PB) Series of isolation transformers brings enhanced performance and protection to even the smallest AV systems. The PB series takes all of the best Torus tech and ports it into compact and lightweight units. The new PB 4 isolates outlet pairs to separate source components from power components for a cleaner signal and exceptional audio-visual experience. The smaller PB 2 is perfect for applications where only a few critical components need superior protection and power isolation.

Wall Mount (WM) Series – Designed for larger projects with 240V input, the Wall-Mount series packs all the features of Torus Power’s rack mount units into a system that provides a source of clean, uninterrupted power for large installations or applications with no rack space to spare. At InfoComm, Torus Power will display its WM 60 BAL AVR2 TVSS, a toroidal isolation transformer that feeds up to eight racks with 60V output and features cloud-based monitoring, automatic voltage regulation, and transient voltage surge suppression. The TVSS device responds in under five nanoseconds to manage surges up to 80,000 amps, while offering additional noise filtration of EMI and RFI.

Automatic Voltage Regulation (AVR) Series – Fluctuating voltage conditions can adversely affect sound and image quality and shorten the life of AV equipment. Torus Power AVR units, including the AVR, AVR 2, and TOT AVR, employ automatic voltage regulation to provide superior protection from voltage sags, surges, and brownouts. Stacked with features including Ethernet control and IP addressability for remote monitoring and management, the AVR2 20 RK isolation transformers enhance the performance of any commercial AV system, while protecting equipment from surges, spikes, and brownouts that can be caused by a variable grid.

Mayfield Mastering Chooses Torus to Power and Protect High-End Monitor System in  World-Famous Studio

Mayfield Mastering Chooses Torus to Power and Protect High-End Monitor System in World-Famous Studio

Torus Power RM 45 BAL isolation transformer helps mastering facility deliver pristine, consistent sound to top recording artists while protecting the studio’s investment in high-end equipment.

When John Mayfield, owner and founder of Nashville-based Mayfield Mastering, became one of the first studio engineers in the world to install the MB3-XBD-A 3-way active main monitor system from PMC, he knew he had to protect his investment. On the recommendation of PMC USA’s President of Sales and Marketing Maurice Patist, Mayfield turned to Torus Power to deliver the pristine sound quality these best-in-class speakers are capable of, as well as protect the system from the effects of harmful power events, including power spikes, surges, and lightning. 

“The PMC MB3 system retails for about $80,000 and is designed to deliver clear and transparent sound, so you want to make sure that every component involved in the system is perfect,” says Mayfield. “Just as you wouldn’t buy a house without homeowners’ insurance, you can’t put this system in without some kind of protection—and it’s got to be the best protection you can buy.”

Patist connected Mayfield with legendary technical engineer Arthur Kelm—CEO of Ground One AV consulting group and VP of Engineering for Capitol Studios—who spent some time listening to the finely tuned room before helping Mayfield select the right Torus Power unit for the application.

Kelm suggested the Torus Power RM 45 BAL to power and protect the integrated Class-D amplifiers that are part of the MB3 active system. Working closely with the studio’s electrician, Kelm recommended running a fresh 240-volt feed off the breaker box, through the RM 45 BAL, and feeding that directly into the amplifiers for clean, uninterrupted power.

Mayfield, a first-time Torus Power user, says he’s been impressed with the consistent performance the RM 45 delivers. “I put an analog voltmeter on the unit, and it has been sitting at 125 volts. It hasn’t moved one iota since the day we put it in.”

Just In Case Lightning Strikes Twice

The RM 45 features Torus Power’s proprietary Narrow Bandwidth Technology (NBT) for noise filtering, high instantaneous current capability, and toroidal isolation to deliver pure, isolated power regardless of line conditions. It also provides superior protection against power surges and lightning. This last feature was critical in Mayfield’s selection of a Torus Power unit as the building that houses the studio experienced a devastating lightning strike 10 years ago. The resulting power surge destroyed two amplifiers and several other electronic components. “I don’t ever want to be involved in that kind of experience again,” Mayfield says.

Although the studio’s equipment is protected, monetarily, by an insurance policy, building the custom PMC units for replacement and having them shipped from England could take months, potentially sending Mayfield’s business to its knees. With a constant flow of big-name recording artists relying on the technology and talent within the Mayfield Mastering studio, the facility simply could not be out of service for any period of time.

“If lightning were to strike and take the system out, again, it would be devastating,” says Mayfield. “The Torus Power unit ensures that’s never going to happen to me again. I can sleep at night now.”

Clean, Consistent Mastering Every Time

While the initial impetus for the upgrade revolved around protecting Mayfield’s significant investment in the PMC system, he also sought to preserve the integrity of the masters created in his highly respected studio.

Mayfield Mastering works with hundreds of hours of recordings on a given day. Any system inconsistencies could affect the final product, coloring the master mix in a way that diminishes the original recording. “The Torus Power RM 45 BAL unit ensures that the PMC amplifiers are fed with the purest power money can buy. Thus ensuring their optimum performance day after day. That’s the consistency I need,” says Mayfield. “I built the room in 2003, and it has never sounded better. I don’t know of any system that’s better at this point.”

With a room that already sounded “incredible,” as Mayfield described it, he wasn’t sure that any improvement was possible, let alone expecting to hear a tangible improvement in the sound quality. When the Torus Power RM 45 BAL was installed, Mayfield was surprised and pleased to hear the difference, particularly a tighter bottom end. “When you get to this level, you can only make improvements in small and expensive steps,” he says. “I’ve finally got the perfect studio.”

The Right Components Make Work More Fun
John Mayfield has been in the audio industry since 1974 as a recording and mix engineer. He started Mayfield Mastering in 1996, thinking that focusing on the mastering end of the business would allow him to work fewer hours.

While that hasn’t been the case, he’s not complaining about the long days. In fact, he seems to be having more fun than ever with his state-of-the-art monitoring system protected and perfected by Torus Power.

The industry veteran has almost childlike joy in his voice when he concludes, “I’ve got the best system that technology and the industry can provide—and it’s just so much fun to work!”

The Road to ISE: Torus Powers Ahead with POWERBLOCK

Logo for Torus PowerFirst published on AVNetwork

ISE 2018 brings together global AV integrators, influencers, and stakeholders for an exciting four-day tradeshow and conference. This year, more than 75,000 visitors are expected in Amsterdam and everyone is looking for new solutions that solve problems and deliver value. In this Q&A with Torus Power COO and president, Kevin Main, we learn what Torus Power has on deck for the residential and commercial sectors.

Q&A with Kevin Main, president & Chief Operating Office, Torus Power Inc.

Q: Why ISE?
ISE has become a key part of the international sales strategy for Torus Power for several reasons. As a combined show for residential and commercial integrators and distributors, ISE provides a great opportunity for us to meet with our customers and prospects from both market segments in one location. Amsterdam is also a popular location for the show, and many international distributors attend ISE. It used to be that CES in Las Vegas was the key show for us to conduct international sales meetings every year, but that has changed. ISE has replaced CES for Torus Power as our annual meeting place for international customers. Since the show speaks to both the residential and commercial segments, it allows us to display a wider variety of products. This year, for example, we will be showing products ranging from our new POWERBLOCK series designed for small high-performance systems all the way up to our large wall mount power isolation solutions that are designed for larger residential and commercial projects.

Q: What will you focus on at the show?
We are focused on two key objectives at ISE…

1.  launching our new POWERBLOCK product series. The PB series is a smaller version of our toroidal isolation technology that will be used in small hi-fi and audio/video systems, and these products will also be used to isolate audio and video components to deliver the ultimate listening and viewing experience. We will be introducing four new models in this series at ISE

2.  For the first time at an international show, we will be showing our Torus Power Wall Mount series. The Wall Mount series is a large isolation transformer that is designed to be used as an electrical sub-panel to power large audio/video systems and studios that require isolated power to multiple locations for equipment. This is a very popular product series for us in North America, and we are looking forward to a similar response to this product line from our international customers.

Q: What about your solutions is notable for technology managers?  
Our technology has taken more than a decade of engineering and development work. Every product that Torus Power makes uses a custom designed toroidal isolation transformer to provide the ultimate power foundation for audio, video, and control systems. Our products provide three significant benefits…

1. Performance: Torus Power units isolate the audio video components for the environment and provide a clean power foundation. This means a lower noise floor and more dynamic capabilities for the connected system.

2. Protection: Rather than using a single point of protection, Torus Power uses multiple layers of protection for sensitive electronic equipment. We start with a magnetically isolated power delivery system and then add Series Mode Surge Suppression and options like Automatic Voltage Regulation and commercial grade Transient Voltage Surge Suppression modules.

3. Reliability: Sensitive electronic components and microprocessors need the right power foundation to operate reliably over a long period of time. Bad power can cause systems to respond slowly, freeze, or even fail. Torus Power isolation transformers make Audio/Video and control systems more reliable.

Q: Any advice for first-time ISE attendees?
ISE is a large show that includes training and development programs, and the latest technology from leading manufacturers in the commercial and custom audio video space. Be sure to take enough time to see the show and take advantage of the learning opportunities that are available. And don’t forget to enjoy Amsterdam…It is a great city!
