How long will they last?
The T.R.A.P.™ and T.R.A.P.™-B devices are designed to withstand any normal vehicle transient as well as a nuclear-generated EMP without damage.
Are these devices good quality?
The T.R.A.P.™ and T.R.A.P.™-B devices are hand assembled in the US and constructed from the highest quality materials (see below).
T.R.A.P.™- The plug is made with bronze, nickel-plated negative contacts, gold-plated center contact, and Bakelite body. It is rated for 25 Amps continuous, much more than is needed for voltage transients. The transient voltage suppression component is ultra high reliability (AEC Q101 qualified), has a turn-on time of < 1 picosecond, and can suppress up to 5,000 Watts!
T.R.A.P.™-B– The weatherproof module is IP68 rated with integrated rubber o-rings, automotive-grade wire, copper terminals, and marine-grade heatshrink. It contains the same AEC Q101 qualified transient suppression device as the T.R.A.P.™ but in a more convenient form factor for use across the battery.
What are high-saturation ferrites?
Ferrites are devices that clamp around power wires to reduce high-frequency current transients. Most ferrites will saturate and stop providing protection when more than a couple of amps flow through the wires. The custom-made, high-saturation, auto ferrites sold here are modified to allow significantly more current through the part before saturating. Watch the video below to better understand their function and installation.
