BIT 15 Surge Suppression Question
« on: 20 Jan 2018, 09:53 pm »
Does the 2016 BIT 15 that weighs 46 pounds use moving mode surge suppression or does it simply rely on the circuit breaker or something else? Not sure if this would be a an IS BIT 15 which from the literature apparently does not have moving mode surge suppression.

The BIT IS conditioners use sacrificial surge protection. They are $3 pieces that can be field  replaced.
The BIT conditioners that are not IS use moving mode surge protection.

My confusion came from the Bryston website where the BIT 15 page says moving mode surge protection but when you open the brochure you discover there is a line of BIT conditioners that don't use moving mode surge protection.

The good news is the unit I purchased is a moving mode surge protection BIT 15 and not a sacrificial BIT IS 15.
