HDMI ESD protection
Whilst ESD is a normal everyday occurrence, it can be extremely damaging to electronic equipment, especially our expensive HDMI high definition products. ESD will lower the service life of these products, or worse still, damage them beyond repair. ESD damage is usually invisible to the human eye, but the damage to inner chipsets is random and complicated.
HDMI Power supply protection
Pin 18 of the HDMI protocol is the designated +5V power supply for many HDMI devices, including switchers and splitters. Their power is often derived from a set top box or a TV via the HDMI cable.
If for any reason this power is weakened or corrupted this will cause an equipment failure or malfunction. The AZSPHDMI protector supplies the correct +5V power supply level.
