  • Provides rapid power off discharge of storage capacitors (under 5 seconds) for additional user safety
  • Utilizes multiple filter capacitors in order to better handle ripple current heating effects
  • Utilizes heavy duty bridge rectifier mounted to a large heatsink
  • Indicators furnished for "DC Output ON" and back EMF "DUMP"
