The Silencer is a harmonic reducing and surge suppression device based on a configuration of three power filters all designed to use little or no power when no noise energy is present. The Harmonic Silencer, like other Applied Energy LLC products, uses noise energy to cancel itself. The larger the noise the more the Silencer will react and apply a correction. The response time is not like other types of surge suppression.
The Silencer reacts instantaneously limited only by the inductive charging rate. Solid state components are not used in the design. The Silencer differs from other types of suppression in other ways. There are no circuits converting high voltage spike to high current surges and the Silencer does not increase the magnitude of ground current in any machinery or facility circuit.
