The Gigawatt PowerControl conditioner is an extension of the concept used in PowerPrime. This model also uses the solutions known from the higher PC series power conditioners. The device is equipped with 12 outlets, making it comparable in functionality to the flagship PC-4 EVO+. The standard equipment includes voltage display with switch, and DC Blocker. Like all GigaWatt power conditioners, the PowerControl is available with front panels in black and silver.

All elements of the device are mounted in a new, rigid, steel/aluminum chassis, with a modular structure, which allows the outlets assembly  in various standards. The housing is based on anti-vibration feet, which isolate the device of undesirable interference, coming from the ground.

The new design front panel, is made of a thick piece of aviation aluminum, the surface of which, after precise milling, is anodized in two color variants – black or silver. In the central part of the front there is a filter enable indicator.

The GigaWatt PowerControl mains conditioner has a front display which indicates the input mains voltage. This precision voltmeter is highly resistant to distortion and measurement errors caused by higher harmonics, but does not generate any interference, which would affect the quality of the power filtered by the conditioner. The conditioner is also equipped with an additional circuit signaling a poor connection to the electrical network. Its action is indicated by a red LED which signals incorrect polarity of the device or faulty grounding.

The GigaWatt PowerControl is equipped with twelve power outlets G—040.  Brass connectors are silver-plated, without the use of intermediate metals such as a copper or nickel layer, which could cause detrimental serial resistance and thus lower the voltage. Strong, stable connection, bigger connection surface and a thick layer of silver guarantee perfect contact with the plug pins. Additionally, the sockets are cryogenically processed and de-magnetized.

The GigaWatt PowerControl mains conditioner effectively protects against interference and surges existing in the home electrical network. It also guarantees a significant improvement in the sound and image quality of the devices connected to it. Thanks to its 12 electrical outlets, you can easily connect all the elements of your hi-fi and home cinema installation. 

The GigaWatt PowerControl is based on the new architecture of the RLC filtering branch. The device does not have traditional protection elements, such as thermal or blow fuses, which throttled the free flow of the current, have a negative influence on the sound.

Surge protection is provided by a protection block integrated with the filter, equiped with plasma spark gaps and a new generation of UltraMOV varistors. These elements, in combination with a properly executed, modern electrical installation guarantee comprehensive protection against overvoltages and overcurrents.

The surge protection is provided by the overvoltage block integrated with a filter that contains plasma spark gaps, a new generation of UltraMOV varistors and a pre-filter. These elements, in conjunction with a properly made, modern electrical installation, guarantee comprehensive protection against overvoltages and overcurrents. Interference suppression is ensured by a filtering system that was built, among others, on Premium class interference suppression capacitors and IP filter cores (Iron Powder). The filter system is activated by an internal high-in-rush relay with silver contacts with a large surface area and a switching capacity of 4000VA.

All electronic components of the filter are mounted with silver solder on PCB’s with extremely wide conductive traces made of copper (total thickness of conductive layers is as much as 70 micrometers). Short connections and a very large cross-section of paths reduce the transition resistance and significantly increase the current carrying capacity of the entire filter.

The device uses a buffering system with a GigaWatt Audio Grade compensation battery, which increases the current efficiency at non-linear loads which are, for example, power amplifiers and reduces the difference between the power at the input and output of the conditioner. This allows for almost unlimited impulse possibilities, unheard of in other similar passive conditioners and unattainable for active power conditioners.

The GigaWatt PowerControl adopts an innovative and exclusive power distribution system. It is based on massive distribution rails made from polished plates of OFHC 10100 oxygen-free copper with a purity of 99.995%. This allows uniform distribution without loss of voltage on each of the filter branches. Power is supplied directly to each pair of output sockets via bolted and tightened connections and wiring with 4mm² oxygen-free copper conductors. The star connection topology and high conductance combined with the 30 mm² cross section of each of the rails enable uniform and stable power distribution regardless of the load on the individual outputs of the mains conditioner.

The internal wiring is based on GigaWatt Powerlink cables from OHFC copper with a cross-section of 4 QMM. The connection system in the star topology leads the current to the output sockets through a current distribution system based on massive third generation distribution bars made of polished, high-conductive copper (OHFC 10100 with a purity of 99.995%). The large cross-section of each rail (30QMM), high wiring conductivity and star star connection guarantee an even and stable distribution of power at each output socket – regardless of the load of the other outputs of the conditioner.
