A power conditioner is a device used to protect sensitive loads by smoothing out voltage fluctuations such as spikes, transients and electrical noise. It can be electronic or transformer-based.
Also known as a line conditioner, it protects equipment from power surges, helps to correct voltage and waveform distortions, and removes external electrical noise (i.e. frequency and electromagnetic interference) caused by devices such as radios and motors.
