Elite Series Model 3 AC Power Conditioner:
note: The Model 3 is world compatible with both single sided AC power,
Hot-Neutral-Ground, and balanced power, Hot-Ground Hot.
The Model 3 is for AC power of 100
to 130 volts and is convertible to 240 VAC just by switching out the
This AC supplied power can be
single sided such as the USA standard of Hot-Neutral-Ground, or balanced
such as Hot-Ground-Hot.
All world standard systems are
accounted for in this design.
in some unusual locations in other countries reversed.
And we now offer the 32 amp IEC high current plug at
the output for Boulder Amps if desired by special order.
The stock input connection is the Neutrik PowerCon 32 amp rated locking
plug & the stock JENA 1116 Royal power cordage input and output
wires are an equivalent 9 Gauge, yet remains very flexible.
The Model 3 will handle the power needs of any Stereo or Mono Amplifier
and note... the Magnetic Hydraulic Dual
Circuit Breaker is designed to handle the inrush current needs
of high power amplifiers.
The conversion of any Model 3 from one voltage range to the other can be
accomplished in the field by simply exchanging the BIFROST module.
With the exchange of this one simple module, the Model 3 becomes
compliant with any grounded household AC power system in the world.
The Model 3
based on the evolution of our sequoia sapling board and its variations,
continues to evolve with many new features.
These are The Model 3's features:
No more fuses
they were slightly noisy and required replacement when blown.
- A Magnetic
Hydraulic Dual Circuit Breaker (Same design as the
Sequoia) rated to the 20 Amp national standard.
- Its main feature is to absorb a high inrush current safely, breaks and resets on both the
hot and neutral rails and has a quieter electrical operation.
- Certified Vishay Capacitors. These
capacitors are multinational certified and are designated for either
X or Y use depending on the place in the circuit.
- The Gas Tube spike and lightning
protection circuit combines with Metal Oxide Varistors of truly
modern design. It is out of the circuit so it is dead silent
in the circuit until protection from lightning needed, very fast
- Mosorb technology integrated into
the active circuit to give general surge protection to both
over-volt and surge current. Super protection.
- We invented the arrangement into
a new kind of replaceable package. (
Our name "BIFROST" ) Is a
module. It is very quiet under normal operation and super
fast acting in the circuit when needed to clamp to ground.
As a sacrificial component it takes the potential damage from bad
line events which will happen in the real world. It is
designed to be completely replaceable in the field so shipping
back to us is no longer necessary when bad things happen in the
world of AC power.
- Vishay precision bleed down
resistors - non inductive.
JENA modified Cardas NEMA and
32 amp Powercon & JENA modified Cardas IEC plugs,
custom modified design for use by JENA Technologies.
- These are great, rhodium plated
parts and these replace the great parts we used.
Better parts and are very good looking.
- On the production versions...
Stainless end plates of heavy build and a distinctive appearance on
the production models. The laser cut .115 thick 11 GA SS T304
Stainless Steel is edge sanded for smoothing and then bead blasted
in house to give a finish that is easy to clean and will last many
years looking great. And the main housing parts are an anodized
aluminum extrusion we modify and line with Cascade Audio Engineering
- Incorporating 11 wires of 16
gauge wires into the weave of the cords, so it will handle the
heaviest loads of big amplifiers. Up to 20 amps before the breaker
trips. The unit itself is far more capable in handling high current.
- The assembly hardware, 6-32
button socket cap in 18-8 stainless steel of very high grade.
- Actual physical standard length
is about 8 plus ft long
The use of a dual Breaker and BIFROST is superior and
will give superior performance to the sound of this fabulous solution.
(BIFROST means: Bi-directional Integrated Field
Replaceable Over-voltage System Technology )
The BIFROST device itself is hand made by JENA
Labs directly in the United States.
The Sockets are a high grade Bakelite base with
high grade machined copper and gold plated receptacles.
With the need for high-performance
AC power conditioning, and with an eye toward reasonable costs, we
set out to create AC power-conditioning products that are
affordable yet give a range of AC power conditioning that will
satisfy almost any set of needs. All of these products are
award winning designs, built to last, with dependable and
predictable results that have made them famous.
The Model 3 will be incorporated in some new Amplifiers Products
Not made by JENA as the standard power cord options that are
available as standard equipment...
That speaks Volumes as to how good these are.
We set the bar very high and with this series of AC power
Conditioners just set it higher with the new Model 3.
Comes with an new version of our Power Cord as well:
The PC Card has a built in buss bars that will handle over
20 amp loads with ease.
This is a Sequoia Board - used in the Model 3 from JENA
Various inductors are selected for frequency filtering over a broad
bandwidth of noise.
Cardas® quad eutectic solder is used always with all of our power
conditioners. Never any shortcuts to using the best of all
components and materials.
We hand select all of our parts and carefully choosing only the finest
and toughest for the purpose intended.
None of our conditioners are made by a machine, all are built by hand
by a NASA certified hand solder expert.
After we produced several hundred Model Ones... all are still out in
the field doing their work, none ever failed to do what it
does... we just decided to better our own product.
Why not, we learn, we grow. we design the best of the best. The
Model 3 is the standard by which others must compete with.
The Model 3 price is $5000.00 for the
Updated July 8th,
The Revolution in our power
conditioners is being advanced by the technical evolution of
all of our models.
second of our new generation of AC power conditioning
products is the Model 3. A potent AC conditioner.
This is an Elite Series conditioner, more info very soon
