Adding this capacitor (or two) in parallel to the input of any EMI filter will improve suppression of the differential noise and power waveform disturbances. Its positive impact will also propagate down the power line, hence other equipment will benefit from a cleaner power.
Use with caution after transformers. Adding a substantial capacitance to the secondary may result in elevated voltage. In case a high-energy storage is deployed at the transformer’s secondary a thorough checking of the resulting voltage is highly recommended.
Note 1: A filtered IEC inlet and the Elite 2A EMI filter are displayed for the illustration purposes only.
Note 2: For allowing the positive filtering impact of the capacitor to propagate down the power line the use of an unfiltered power inlet is recommended.

This is a long life quality capacitor to connect on your power strip line how suggested by vendor.
It reduce noise from power line in easy and effective way.
Be careful to use a capacitor because it store a lot of energy , i suggest to connect in parallel a 110k 2w resistor to discharge it when disconnect.
My rcl meter report a very close capacity value of 19,39mF and a superb 0.001 ESR value.
Tool to fix it in a safe and strong way are provided.
I’m degree in electronic and I’m working for very high quality power conditioner.
I live in Milan, Italy.
