Environmental Potentials patented waveform correction technology has revolutionized power quality for the past 10 years. Previously, power quality devices focused on protecting equipment from extreme events. Extreme events were defined as more than 20% above or below the peaks of the sine wave. These extreme events are created by events such as lightning, utility switching, transformer failure, and large faults.
However, the proliferation of electronics, computers and digital equipment is creating pollution on the waveform which rarely, if ever, exceeds the 20% "envelope". The processes of rectifying AC to DC, and inverting DC to AC, are responsible for generating 85% of power pollution.
As seen in the illustration below, these signal manipulations leave the waveform full of pollution. This pollution equals losses, unreliable performance, decreased asset lifespans, malfunctions, increased maintenance, and downtime.
