For years engineers have tried to put inductors on the ground line to eliminate ground transients, but suitable-rated inductors had too high dcR and were unable to cover a wide enough frequency range to be effective. By combining newly-developed core properties in this filter, we have solved these issues. The GTT works by opposing changes in electron flow on the ground wire. This slows the damaging rise and fall time of a transient voltage wave form rather than clipping it off, controlling frequency rather than amplitude. The filter is designed to achieve sufficient attenuation in the frequency ban which covers interference, and minimal attenuation at 50/60Hz, thus eliminating transient surges on the ground wire.
The Ground Transient Terminator (GTT) technology developed by ECM Electronics and distributed by 9 Corporation sets a new standard for power protection and provides end-users and manufacturers with a new dimension of product reliability. The GTT can be used in an infinite number of applications, including Process Controls, Fire and Security Alarm Panels, Telecommunications systems, Audio/Visual systems, Broadcasting Systems, Data Storage systems, Mission Critical devices and Medical Equipment.
The GTT is available today in the hard-wired block version and can be custom-designed to fit any application. The line cord version is currently in development and scheduled for production sometime this summer. Also under development is a lightning barrier device which integrates the GTT technology for use in cable television/satellite and security monitoring systems.
