The P3 is the smallest of our personal power generating stations, but don’t let that distinction fool you. The P3 produces pure and perfect AC and is the power source of choice for almost any size system. Smaller than the P5, this workhorse can be the foundation on which you build your system when a P5 isn’t in the cards.
The P3 takes in the old AC and outputs new, rebuilt power with 3 separate regenerated zones and a 4th, high current filtered zone, the P3 can handle any size system you want to power. From the biggest power amplifiers to the smallest pieces of source equipment, this combination of regenerated AC coupled with a high current unrestricted filtered zone will work magic on your system’s performance.
With your system powered directly from the output of the P3, dynamics and openness are unquestioned. A Power Plant is clearly one of the most important pieces of audio equipment you can own â€“ building a firm and reliable foundation for your system that will serve you for years to come.
Complete protection from any power line event
Owners who have invested in a Power Plant can rest assured their connected equipment will be safe from any power line event such as over voltage, under voltage, surges, spikes and potentially threatening problems.
The input voltage to the Power Plant is fully protected by state-of-the-art clamping devices and the output of the Power Plant is fully regulated so even large voltage swings that would normally damage connected equipment are made safe by either clamping or regulating. In most cases, connected equipment enjoys the protection and performance benefits of fully regulated power, even under extreme circumstances.
In the event of a major surge or spike, the Power Plant will automatically remove power from all connected equipment and shut itself down. When power is restored to normal, the Power Plant will safely turn all connected equipment back on in the sequence owners have set up for it.
Control from anywhere in the world
Using any web browser or mobile device from anywhere in the world, Power Plant owners can monitor their power, schedule equipment to turn on and off days, weeks or even months in advance. Once connected to the internet the Power Plant communicates and reports its status to our servers automatically.
Owners can then go online and schedule events, check the status of the power line, the voltages and even receive email notifications if so desired. Owners can also manage all the parameters available through the web interface, including switching zones on and off, setting up auto reboot area that will ping our servers to make sure internet connectivity is maintained and rebooting the device if not, plus a host of other interactive features and events.
IR and trigger controls
In the back of the P3 there are two mini jacks that can be assigned as either an IR input or output or a DC trigger transmitter or receiver. For the IR capabilities, the P3 can be assigned up to 15 separate IR commands for any zone and these IR broadcasts can be triggered by any number of assignable events. This helps P3 owners maintain complete control over not only the AC power, but by directly controlling that same equipment through a remote control.
If you have equipment that needs a DC trigger to turn it on or off remotely, you can assign one of the mini jacks to be either the sending or receiving unit for these commands and remotely turnon/off equipment or have that equipment remotely turn on/off the P3.
Input naming and customization
With 4 zones available on the P3 it is important to know which piece of equipment is being powered by which zone so you can access from the web interface. On a P3 it’s easy. You can name each zone anything you wish via the online interface.
Once the outlets are named then it’s quite easy to schedule when they turn on/off or the sequence that they are powered on. For example, you may wish for all your sources to turn on first, warm up and then when you decide it’s long enough, your power amps will turn on.
Monitor your system’s heartbeat
You can monitor your power quality of your home and the P3 with its real time distortion analyzer and power measurement features. Measure everything that’s going on affecting your system’s performance over the internet from anywhere in the world.
The P3 will monitor your power line quality and report any problems to you through the web page, text alerts or emails sent anywhere you wish. It’s up to you. The P3’s real-time and on-line measurement system includes surges, voltage levels, power usage and power quality as measured by THD (Total Harmonic Distortion) on the line.
The data is stored on our servers and available via the web interface for the P3. Customers can look at power quality over time, or drill down to specific times of day to find out if there’s a problem involving the home’s power.
