Identifying how, where, when and to what extent you mitigate un-wanted noise in a whole system context is the key. To consider these aspects and arrive at a balanced solution, we have undertaken a comprehensive ‘top down’ analysis of Audio and Visual systems in the operational, quiescent and shutdown modes. This included:
- Establishment of a set of events to an appropriate level
- Assessment of the events for the three modes of operation, and
- The derivation of specific system requirements for each mode.
The BR.Black Hole products are designed to address a representative operational scope and offer a flexible, structured and effective solution at system level.
The modules do mirror some features of grounding boxes, however, they address much more than an alternative signal ground path and are designed to perform in a more discreet and sensitive way, to address a whole range of events that apply to system level operation per se.
The module designs apply diversity using separation and segregation to ensure that first, they do not introduce a single point of failure, which could potentially damage your system. Secondly, to mitigate the potential for feedback into your system. Feedback has a detrimental effect on both your system and the process to remove the un-wanted energy by presenting resistance. In the extreme it could stop the process all together by cancelling the flow.
In respect of the above, the BR.Black Hole system is quite different to systems that have one large common dissipation volume, or active components. It is better considered as a System Energy Drain, which has been engineered to address defined requirements.
