A typical lightning flash contains about 300 million volts of electricity. Even if your facility does not receive a direct hit, through the process of mutual induction, a conductive circuit located within just a few miles of a lightning strike can cause a several thousand volt transients that will leave electrical service panels vulnerable to power surges.
Going without a surge protection is an expensive and frequent dangerous gamble.
A surge protector is a device to protect electrical equipment from voltage spikes that may occur from lightning, power outage, short circuits, and many other natural occurrences. Power surges cause a great amount of heat to run along electrical wiring and cause the wire to burn because more voltage than the wire was designed to hold is being forced into it.
The replacement of mechanical subsystems in industrial applications with electronics has greatly increased the demand for surge protection engineered to this specific environment. Not only is the potential for damage from a surge event increased, but the value of sensitive electronics deployed in the industrial application means that surge protection should be a key priority.
A surge protection device functions in three ways:
LEC Surge protection comes in many forms and can vary depending on the application. It meets every industry requirement, regardless of the exposure risk. Reduce costly downtime and protect sensitive electronic equipment against the damaging effects of lightning.
Our facility guard, transient limiters, Power DIN, Pro-line, Data line protectors, Coaxial line protectors, etc; each product solves every challenge faced by different industries.
Regardless of the type of electrical disturbances, our manufactured and patented surge protection devices can protect your company’s power supply, minimize downtime and safeguard your investment. Our patents and standards differentiate us from others and help protect your investment in electronic systems.
