With technology making tremendous strides over the last few decades, industries have seen a proliferation of important and expensive electrical devices and electronic products.
The need for lightning surge protection devices can depend on numerous factors. In today’s electronic world, electrical systems in every industry aren’t complete unless they incorporate surge protection devices.
A sudden increase in voltage occurs from a lightning strike or damage to a power line causes excess current to pass through. In just nanoseconds, the same energy that powers a device or machine can stop it from working. Just a slight electrical disruption can have devastating consequences, varying from disruption to repair to complete ruin.
Surge protection devices are intended to afford protection from electrical surges and spikes, including those caused directly and indirectly by lightning, successfully without impairing the operation of the system or causing excessive in-line resistance.
Deployed with the latest state-of-the-art technology all our devices are specially designed with a high surge capacity to suit even the most lightning prone regions of the world.
It is used as both a complete device or as an integral part of a lightning protection system.
How they work
Under excessive surge conditions or when a transient surge occurs, our SPDs will switch to a fully conductive state diverting high current. They will then reset automatically to a non-conductive state when the current falls below the holding current.
With our patented SPD, you can
It is interesting to note that industries require multi-layered protection:
Type 1 – Installed between the power lines in the street and your meter
Type 2 – Installed between the meter and breaker box
Type 3 – Small protectors at wall outlets where all devices are plugged in
A special mention to the service entrance Surge protection device; commonly installed in the commercial and industrial environment, it provides a more comprehensive approach to surge protection. It ensures the protection of the entire electrical system by reducing the voltage before it reaches the small wall SPD connected to various sensitive devices.
Going without surge protection devices is an expensive and dangerous gamble. Lightning Eliminators & Consultant Inc., suggest our manufactured and patented surge protection devices to safeguard your facility.
