Design

The V5 Polaris is a compact power cleaning and distribution bar measuring just 510mm in length, 80mm wide and 50mm in height. It features six individual outlets; these reference back to the central internal PCB. Most power filters of this style join outlet sockets together, running each in series connection. This is an error of judgement as Differential Mode Noise, created by the connected load (your audio components) will cross-contaminate between the outlet sockets. The electrical architecture and design of the V5 Polaris prevents this and is therefore superior.

The V5 Polaris features a unique delta filter topology, ten times greater than the recommended standard, this offers more than 20dB power cleaning at 1kHz (reference 600Ohms), this is then improved to 42dB at 10kHz. Most leading experts agree that 10kHz is where radio frequency interference (RFI) starts to influence performance. This is also linked to an amplifiers ability to reject power supply noise. This electrical engineering ensures class- leading power cleaning performance for both Common Mode (RFI) and Differential Mode mains noise. The printed circuit board (PCB) itself also has twice the standard copper loading and is silver-plated.

This unique circuit delivers clean power to its six outlet sockets – each one independently isolated to prevent cross-contamination of Differential Mode mains noise. This is combined with IsoTek’s KERP © (Kirchhoff’s Equal Resistance Path) to ensure equal resistance and equal power delivery to all outlets. The internal wiring is of the highest standard, a unique 2sqmm design featuring pure 6n oxygen free copper conductor strands each silver-plated, these offer low resistance and high amperage. An aerospace grade Fluorinated Ethylene Propylene (FEP) dielectric, with very low dielectric resistance is used to protect the conductors as well as giving an ideal conductor contact dielectric for the internal power delivery system.

Furthermore, in the new V5 version instantaneous protection is increased to 45’000A, this not only protects the circuit but also safeguards your valuable connected equipment via IsoTek’s unique sequential and repeatable protection system.

V5 Polaris also contains a System Link outlet, this is designed to connect multiple units together, whilst maintaining a star earth reference, and preserving the need for multiple wall outlet sockets.

A wall hanging bracket system is also included, this allows easy mounting of the product behind your audio equipment rack, if desired.

The internal wiring of IsoTek products synergises with the range of IsoTek power cables. One critical but overlooked area within audio is maintaining commonality of design and material properties through an audio wiring loom, be it a signal carrying cable or a power cable network. IsoTek’s award winning Initium power cable is also included.

EVO3 Optimum

A high quality FEP provides a very low dielectric constant over a wide frequency range. The three conductors are given a slight rotational twist to aid RFI and EMI rejection, and are then surrounded by a cotton filler which give internal strength and reduce microphony.
