DE2 Filter (an improved DE1 filter)

Our DE2 filters now have a larger capacitor (more effective at reducing DE) and, uniquely, have an internal electric field screen which greatly reduces the electric field around the outside of the filter. They also have an internal safety fuse and other components.

Fitting a few DE2 "Dirty Electricity Filters" in your house helps reduce the DE by lowering high-frequency noise on your house wiring. They plug in (and occupy) a standard 13A mains power socket. We suggest a maximum of one-per-room and, in the first instance, probably just starting with two for the whole house. Please note that they reduce problematic high-frequency noise between the 230 volts phase and the neutral and don't lower the normal electric fields created by house wiring. For more details, please see "How to deal with Dirty Electricity".

Buy multiples and save money (3 pack saves you 10%, 6 pack saves you 20%)

Technical detail: The unit contains a 15 microfarad a.c. mains-voltage rated capacitor, discharging resistor and fuse. Unlike some DE filters on the market ours contain an electric-field screen inside the case which is connected to the Earth pin. Some filters on the market are not even internally fused. Our DE2 units are fully approved to European safety standards.

These are either supplied as standard UK 3 pin plug or with a Euro plug adaptor (Type F - Schuko) in the pack - just select which type you want.

This unit contains a powerful mains conditioning filter which will greatly reduce radio-frequency noise and interference on your house mains electricity supply coming from your computers, TVs, videos, modern switched-mode mains adapters and chargers, etc. The filters are designed to dramatically reduce both "asymmetrical" as well as "symmetrical" interference. It uses high frequency capacitors and an inductor/choke as well as an earth line choke to stop interference through the mains earth line. It uses a screened mains cable to eliminate the effects of radiated noise interference.

  • Space for six UK plugs

  • Includes surge protection

  • Stops "dirty mains" and RF signals being sent into your house wiring by computers, TVs, videos, etc.

  • Greatly reduces interference from external sources at frequencies above 300 kHz. The DE meter picks up DE from a few kHz upwards, so it may pick up emissions from external sources from a few kHz to 150 kHz let through by the mains filter strip.
    We recommend using DE2 capacitor filters to absorb lower frequency noise (1 kHz - 300 kHz) in conjunction with these multi-way conditioning filter strips used for your TV/Hi-Fi and computer equipment.

  • Often improves picture and sound quality with AV equipment
