PC1 is the basic conditioner in the GigaWatt line of products, designed as an element of effective protection, filtering and power distribution for audio and video systems. Despite the fact, that the PC1 EVO is the cheapest power conditioner offered by the company GigaWatt, it proves itself as a device powering reference music and video gear. This conditioner not only effectively protects from any kind of interference and overvoltage in the power grid, but most of all warrants visible improvement of the sound and picture quality in the powered devices. The unit excels with a solid construction, usage of selected components and high quality and aesthetics of workmanship. In the modular construction of the PC1 EVO we resigned from using separation transformers and applied a worked out, multistage, parallel filtration instead. The conditioner is equipped with two independent filtering branches, separate for each pair of output sockets. Due to this solution the filtration of each of the branches was adapted to the character of the load, that will be used on those sockets, different for each kind of devices – digital, analog or high current draw units. The autonomous passive filters allow for isolation from interference generated by devices connected to a common power line. The PC2 EVO conditioner is made from high quality elements. Due to the increased efficiency of the new filtering circuits they were mounted using silver solder on massive PCBs with doublefold content of copper compared to standard PCB. The one layered PCBs have very wide conductive traces made from 70 micrometer thick copper. Damping of the interference is made in RLC type filtering blocks, built using, among other things, metallized polyester capacitors with low inductance and IP (Iron Powder) core filters. In this conditioner we also resigned from using traditional protective elements, like wire or thermal fuses, which throttle the free flow of current to the protected circuits and by this have a negative influence on the sound. The overvoltage protection of the conditioner is guaranteed by the start block, which contains plasma spark gaps, nextgenerations of UltraMOV varistors and an initial filter. Those elements, working together with a well designed, modern power grid, warrant a complex protection against overcurrent and overvoltage. Optionally, the power conditioner can be equipped with the circuit, which eliminates unwanted DC component from the mains (DC Offset Blocker). The Direct Current component (DC Offset) is a very unfavorable phenomenon, which exists in almost every electrical grid. It results in the Alternating Current (AC) sine wave become asymmetrical, what negatively influences any device using transformers. Their cores get magnetized, what translates in higher operating noise (hum), diminished efficiency of the power supply and finally in degraded sound. The DC blocker effectively eliminates this phenomenon without causing any compression or having any other negative influence on the sound. Power Line Conditioner GigaWatt PC1 EVO 20/6/2016 GigaWatt Power Conditioning and Distribution Products Proper operation of the unit is signaled by a blue LED mounted in the front panel. The conditioner is also equipped with an additional circuit, signaling problems with its connection to the power grid. A red LED mounted on the back signals improper polarization of the power fed to the conditioner or bad connection of the grounding. The PC1 EVO uses an innovative, two stage current distribution system, being a proprietary development of the company. It is based on massive power distribution bars of 2nd generation, made from polished, high purity, cathode copper slabs (CuETP). The first stage allows for lossless and equal distribution of power to the individual filtering branches. The second stage supplies power directly to each pair of output sockets, using crimped and screwtightened connections and cabling made from electrolytic copper with a crosssection of 2.5 QMM. The use of the star wiring topology and the high conductance and massive crosssection of about 30 QMM of each of the bars warrants an equal and stable power distribution regardless of the load on any of the conditioner’s outputs The PC1 EVO conditioner is equipped with four high quality power sockets GigaWatt G040 Schuko, designed and manufactured by the company. The brass connectors of those sockets were silver plated at the factory, without the usage of intermediary metals, like copper or nickel, which could introduce unfavorable series resistance and voltage loss. The increased area of contact and the thick layer of silver guarantee sure contact with the plug pins. The sockets were additionally subdued to cryogenic modification and a demagnetizing process. In order to effectively protect children, the G040 sockets were equipped with integrated antisurge shutters (increased protection against touching, conform with VDE 0620). The PC2 EVO is also available with outlets of type NEMA 520R, used in North America and some Asian countries, and with Australian outlets of type AS/NZS 3112. All internal elements of the conditioner were enclosed in a rigid, steelaluminum chassis, which is supported on antivibration feet. The front of the unit is made from a plate of solid, milled aviation aluminum. This panel, with brushed and anodized surface is available in two colors – silver and black. The PC1 EVO is, by standard, equipped with the power cable LC1 MK3 with 1.5m length. To fully utilize the maximum potential of the PC2 EVO we recommend the usage of the LC3 MK3 or LC2 MK3 power cable.
