With technology making tremendous strides over the last few decades, industries have seen a proliferation of important and expensive electrical devices and electronic products.
In today’s electronic world, electrical systems in every industry aren’t complete unless they incorporate surge protection devices.
A sudden increase in voltage that can occur from a lightning strike or damage to a power line can cause excess current to pass through the earth to these sensitive circuits. 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.
