Ameritron Inrush Current Protectors

1 Customer Reviews

Ameritron Inrush Current Protectors are designed to resist high current draw on startup (inrush current). By starting your linear amplifier through a high power current-limiting resistor and then shorting the resistor with a relay, you get a startup sequence that's easy on your tube and power supply components.

When you first turn on your amplifier a massive inrush current floods its power supply. Your house lights may flicker as you hear a loud thump from your amplifier's power transformer. This inrush current stresses all of your power supply components to their limits, and your cold tube filament suffers abusive thermal shock, eventually damaging your amplifier.

You may add one of these Ameritron inrush current protectors to your amplifier without complicated wiring… you don't even have to take the cover off. Simply plug your amplifier's power cord into the protector. By limiting heavy inrush current at a safe, low level, you'll get a longer lasting amplifier.

Momentary high voltage spikes in the AC line can also cause damage to your amplifier. The Ameritron inrush current protectors have built-in Varistors to absorb these spikes before they can cause damage.

These protectors come available in your choice of 120 V or 240 V configurations. The 120 V version limits current to 12 amps during heavy draw inrush periods and 20 amps continuous operating current and the 240 V version limits current to 6 amps during heavy draw inrush periods and 10 amps continuous operating current.

Remove inrush shock from your expensive amplifier. Order Ameritron Inrush Current Protectors from DX Engineering!
