From the Manufacturer
Utility power problems like EMI/RFI line noise, surges and background spikes can destroy equipment, damage crucial data and lead to critical system failures. Protect your sensitive devices and prevent power disruption with Tripp Lite's Isolator IS250 Power Conditioner. Featuring an internal isolation transformer with a Faraday Shield, the IS250 completely isolates equipment from line noise that can cause incremental, but devastating, equipment damage. Its 680-joule surge suppression rating protects equipment from surges and spikes caused by utility power disruptions and the operation of nearby equipment on the same circuit. With 100% isolation, the IS250 eliminates the need for dedicated circuits and costly site electrical upgrades. Its six-foot power cord allows for flexibility when installing, while the built-in circuit breaker prevents dangerous circuit overloads. 250 watts of capacity allow for use with a variety of sensitive electronics like point-of-sale equipment, diagnostic testing devices, telecom systems and more. The widely spaced NEMA 5-15R output receptacles fit any standard input plug and the lighted power switch offers convenient, one-touch power control. For peace of mind, the IS250 features a rugged, all-metal housing and comes with a two-year warranty.
Completely Isolate and Protect Valuable Equipment for Less
By isolating equipment from unpredictable and disruptive utility power, the IS250 eliminates the need for dedicated circuits or costly upgrades to your site's electrical systems. The internal isolation transformer with Faraday Shield provides 100% isolation from the AC power line for equipment plugged into the IS250 Power Conditioner. The IS250 is perfect for protecting sensitive point-of-sale, telecom and diagnostic equipment that can be affected by EMI/RFI line noise, utility switching transients, background spikes and other unpredictable power conditions.
High-Capacity with Robust Features
The IS250's 250-watt capacity can handle a variety of devices, while features like a 680-joule surge suppression rating, integrated circuit breaker and powerful line noise filtering provide ultimate protection and safety in even the most dangerous conditions. With its continuous transformer filtering and no wearable parts, the IS250 reduces surges in the worst power environments to harmless levels.
Convenient, User-Friendly Operation
A 6-ft. cord allows for flexible installation, while two NEMA 5-15R output receptacles let you plug your standard equipment into the IS250 without any adapters or custom power cords. Operation is easy; simply plug the IS250 into a grounded three-prong utility outlet, plug your equipment into the IS250 and turn the power on. The lighted power switch allows for simple one-touch power control of all connected equipment.
Peace of Mind
The IS250 is compliant with RoHS and TAA standards and also comes with a two year warranty.

After decades of research, trials, errors, marketing hype and outright advertising lies, I have found the answer to 60-cycle hum. This isolation transformer works perfectly.
As a professional guitarist, I have LONG known the grief and hassle caused by bad wiring in nightclubs, studios and my homes. I have tried EVERY CONCEIVABLE method for reducing hum and noise from my equipment: shielding, "noiseless" pickups, expensive amps, mixers, power-conditioners and egregiously-overpriced cables. NONE of those things worked.
Luckily, My wife is an electronic engineer. She suggested that the little "hum-x" I got from Ebtech was simply too small to do any meaningful isolation. I looked high and low, then found this Trip-Lite brand here on Amazon. The price was right so I ordered it, knowing Amazon's return policy is fair in case it didn't work.
It arrived today. I plugged in it to the wall, then plugged my noisiest, cheapest guitar amp into the back of the transformer.
At first, I though I must have hooked it up wrong, because there was absolutely ZERO hum. I checked the cables. Nope. Everything was right. I plugged in a guitar. Nothing. No noise. No hum.
Then I turned the guitar up full. Still no noise. When I strummed a chord, it startled the daylights out of me. The guitar was up full, the amp was up full. Still ABSOLUTELY ZERO HUM.
I have been searching for an answer to this pernicious ubiquitous problem for over 40 years.
This thing is worth it's weight in gold to me now. I lost two expensive pieces of gear just last month: one Kurzweil keyboard and a Mackie mixer, when the poor wiring in a local nightclub fried them.Read more ›
There are You Tube videos describing how to change the internal wiring on this particular unit and it's not hard to do at all if you are electrically inclined. If not knowledgeable or comfortable with household type high voltage AC electricity, probably best not to attempt it. However if you buy this, it doesn't solve your problem, and you don't feel confident in modifying it Amazon will let you return it for a refund (I think within 30 days...) even if there is nothing actually wrong with the product itself. So it can't hurt to try!
Eventually I sold the plasma and purchased a 46" LCD TV to replace it. I had an understanding that all plasmas are inherently prone to buzzing, so I thought that I'd be able to escape this problem with an LCD. But after setting up my brand new LCD and plugging it in for the first time, I was horrified to discover that it emitted the same buzz!
After doing some research on isolation transformers, I decided to try this out to see if it would solve the problem. I'm happy to report that it does. The rear panel of the TV is totally silent when it's plugged into the IS250. If I switch the TV back to the wall outlet, the buzzing returns. The isolation transformer does its job.
The device itself is very heavy and well-built. Everything about it screams quality. It seems that these are being made in a dark gray color now, so while the one I received doesn't match the picture on Amazon, I think it looks better anyway.
Needless to say, I'm really happy I discovered this thing!
Note: There's a big difference in power consumption between Plasma TVs and LCD TVs. My 42" plasma could consume up to 400 watts, so a bigger isolation transformer would have been necessary for that. My LCD consumes around 120 watts, so the IS250 can handle it.
