How ERPS Works
To understand how the ERPS system works you first need to understand two underlying concepts:
So What Does ERPS Do?
Basically, the ERPS system interferes with the electrical charge between iron and oxygen so it becomes hard for them to combine to form rust. ERPS uses a proprietary electronic "capacitive coupler" system to continuously replace lost electrons from the iron in vehicles and metal structures to prevent or reduce the rusting process.
The process goes like this:

Power Supply To The Couplers
The ERPS system operates a unique "closed loop" electrical circuit. This means that all couplers are connected to a common rail supply line. Although in the diagram they may appear to be wired in "series", this is not the case. All couplers are connected in a "parallel" plane ie: all couplers receive an equal amount of voltage or charge from the electron generator. This can easily be checked with a multimeter anywhere in the circuit.
The "closed loop" coupler circuit allows for complete monitoring of the coupler supply line, any fault in the circuit is immediately shown up and the LED light on the generator will go out indicating a fault. Once the fault is rectified the system will immediately "reset" and the operation returns to normal.
