IsoTek V5 Titan Benefits From Redesign
IsoTek has wholly redesigned its Titan power optimiser to create the V5 Titan that features an entirely new PCB topology and improved Direct Current Resistance.
IsoTek's V5 Titan follows the recently announced V5 Aquarius and is a dedicated high-current power cleaning system. The V5 Titan offers three independent power-cleaning networks in a single chassis: two outputs for high-current amplification and a third for an active subwoofer. These use multiple independent power cleaning networks that dramatically reduce Differential Mode mains noise cross-contamination between output sockets, states the company.
The EVO3 Titan was launched at the Munich HIGH END Show in May 2014 and quickly became the benchmark to which other high-current power designs were compared due to its ability to improve large power amplifiers by no short measure.
The V5 Titan retains the 16 A RCBO circuit-breaking system which offers an increased contact area at least 1,000 times greater than a standard fuse from its predecessor. In addition, however, IsoTek says that the PCB topology has been vastly upgraded.
We are told that PCB copper-loading has increased by over fifty percent to improve amperage and decrease resistance. Also, the new circuit offers twice the inductance with an eighty percent increase in current.
Furthermore, improved DCR (Direct Current Resistance) has been applied throughout the design; part of the IsoTek goal is to reduce DCR, bringing performance closer to the zero ohms ideal.
The upgrades are said to result in the V5 Titan delivering absolute power and unrestricted current delivery within the confines of energy company and regulatory limits. Additionally, the sequential protection circuit of the V5 Titan has been increased to now offer 153,000 A of instantaneous protection and 75,000 A of continuous protection, leading IsoTek to state that the V5 Titan is the most robust surge-protection system it currently offers at the price point.
A new 'System Link' feature at the rear of the chassis allows multiple IsoTek devices to be connected for better performance as everything references back to a single wall socket.
The V5 Titan will arrive in Australia in January 2022, and will sell for AUD $7,299 / NZD $7,999 RRP in black or silver.
