Hydra Model-6 incorporates all of the innovative design and technical elements -- save Shunyata’s FeSi-1000 compounds -- that have earned the Hydra-8 its unprecedented array of critical awards and professional endorsements. Shunyata’s six cryogenically treated Venom silver-plated outlets are connected to the Hydra-6’s massive silver/rhodium plated CDA 101 copper buss bars, eliminating all point-to-point wiring.
The Hydra Model-6 Trident Defense System provides noise-reduction with Shunyata’s best five-element Venom filter array, isolating and protecting each duplex outlet as independent power-sources.
Statement-making surge and spike protection is passively implemented and totals a line-popping 40,000-amps of peak current protection. Rounding out the Hydra-6 package is enormous over-current protection in the form of Carling’s best hydraulic electromagnetic breaker. Common to all Hydra models, is the Model-6’s 20-amp inlet connector, allowing each system and budget to dictate which of the five PowerSnakes PaceSetter power cords will be ideal in a given application.
The Hydra Model-6 delivers virtually unlimited user flexibility by combining high-current capability with Shunyata’s passive form of noise reduction and system protection. Because the three silver-plated duplex outlets are isolated with their own buss structure and filtered, they can be interchangeably utilized for either high-current electronics or noise-sensitive digital equipment.
What remains constant throughout the Hydra series is the extreme customization and attention to detail paid to each part and innovative process. Even casual comparisons to the Hydra's silver-plated outlets, massive system protection, current-handling capacity and custom-designed noise filtration will leave no question unanswered.
