Protect critical equipment from transient voltages
Surge Protection refers to defense of valuable equipment and/or services from damaging transient voltages i.e. a lightening strike.
What is a Transient Voltage?
Transient voltages are short duration, high-voltage peaks that are induced on a power grid.

What Damage can a Transient Voltage Cause?
Equipment failure typically resulting from the damage in the depletion zone of solid state devices.
What devices are susceptible?
Variable Frequency Drives (VFD), Uninterrupted Power Supplies (UPS) and Programmable Logic Controllers (PLCs) are all susceptible to transient voltage damage. These devices include diodes and capacitors which are venerable to transients.
Surge Protection Devices (SPD’s) are designed to ‘absorb’ or ‘transfer’ the transient voltage before damage occurs to the solid-state components. SPDs are designed to change from a high impedance device to a very low impedance device within 1 ns or 1 billionth of a second.
