Balanced Power (BP) systems have been a staple of professional recording and motion picture agencies for decades. They help address power-related issues and provide a clean power supply for sensitive audio and video equipment. With the new second-generation BP system, Goertz has made BP technology available for home systems.

Read on to delve into the features of our Goertz BP Systems and understand their benefits.

What Is a Balanced Power System?

A Balanced Power (BP) system is an electrical tool that eliminates common mode noise, voltage spikes, and other forms of electrical interference that can degrade the performance of AV equipment. These systems use transformers and advanced filtering techniques to isolate sensitive AV components from potential disturbances from the power grid or other external sources. In addition to providing a cleaner and more stable power supply, BP systems also help improve the quality of AV signals.

Features of Goertz BP Systems

The Goertz BP Systems bring the benefits of balanced power, widely used in the entertainment industry, to home entertainment applications. Let’s delve into some of the more notable features:

1. Multiple Size Options

The Goertz BP Systems are available in three sizes: 300VA, 600VA, and 1000VA, providing options to suit different power requirements. The housing diameter also varies depending on the model, with the following dimensions:

  • 5 1/8 inches for the 300VA
  • 6 5/8 inches for the 600VA
  • 8 ¼ inches for the 1000VA

The weight of the systems varies according to the model, with weights of 8 lbs, 13 lbs, and 20 lbs for the 300VA, 600VA, and 1000VA models, respectively.

2. Elimination of Electronic Noise

The Balanced Power system uses premium transformers to eliminate electronic noise and hum caused by unbalanced power lines.

3. Enhanced Durability

Our systems feature a transformer encapsulated in an epoxy compound, ensuring durability and protection against external elements. Since the transformer is in a circular steel enclosure finished in scratch-resistant, off-white powder-coated enamel, it has a sleek and robust appearance.

4. Convenience and Compatibility

Our BP system has North American-style three-prong plugs and outlet connectors attached to two-foot lengths of wire for easy installation. You also have more flexibility in configuring the power connections because you can use the power strip at the receptacle end.

5. Easy Installation

You can use the simple single-screw option to wall mount the system or use the threaded insert to install it directly on a component or a rack-mount base. This allows you to place it conveniently in any home theater or room.

Balanced Power systems provide an enhanced entertainment experience, ensuring optimal performance and longevity for AV equipment.
