I have a question for all of you wizards out there. (I didn't see a more appropriate area of the forum for A/C power discussion, so I am posting here.) I have suspicion that voltage drops / brownouts have caused some havoc on our home-automation control system (Crestron). I am currently researching power conditioners, regenerators, UPS, etc. Even within the confusing, subjective world of audio, this area seems like a particularly dark black hole. Question: Does anyone know of a device or tool which can be used to monitor a home’s electrical system? I am envisioning a connected device that can be plugged into an A/C outlet and it measures/monitors/logs spikes, surges, dips, noise on the home's wiring. Real time monitoring would be OK, but the real value would be to see the results over a period of time (a week or so). Any help appreciated. Thanks, Bart
The Hubbell outlet did a couple of things on my system. First the bass response on the system improved there is more extension and there is more precision. It also improved the sound stage making it a bit larger! The original outlet was a standard contractor grade home outlet. Note that in these pictures there is no separate ground wire the EMT in the home acts as the ground. In the second phase of my testing I changed to a different wiring scheme That I will discuss in another post. Also note that the original wiring is a pass through to the next outlet in the chain of outlets in the room. Here is a link the the catalog so you can pick the model and style you like from their catalog: Bob Here are some "poor" pictures of the install.
