Over the last 30 years, electrical distribution systems have changed and grown substantially. Electronic equipment uses sensitive microprocessors while industrial facilities are powering energy-efficient solid-state lightning, telecommunications, air handling, security systems, HVAC systems and more.
In all modern power systems, computers, laser printers, copiers, variable speed drives, electronic power supplies, and sensitive silicon-based microchips share the same electrical systems with traditional equipment. And these sensitive modern electronics and processors cannot tolerate the high-frequency transients and surge.
Utilizing a power strip to protect valuable appliances is at best a feel-good measure. At worst it invites the critical failure that sees these devices rendered inoperable and often damaged beyond repair.
Properly networked surge protection devices solve many of the electrical problems experienced by commercial and industrial facilities. It dramatically improves the total operating efficiency and reliability of the electrical system.
Our patented surge protection devices allow only a normal and safe amount of electricity to pass through the devices.
How does a surge protection device work?
Electrical charges generated in a thunderstorm discharge to the ground with a current of approximately 150 kA. Lightning-induced surge occurs in the cable and instantly applies high energy to the equipment connected to both ends of the cable. These are also called spikes or transients. The duration of these transients is typically measured in microseconds.
Without adequate surge protection, the greatest consequence is the risk to human life. Secondly there is the potential downtime in production and lastly, there is the inconvenience of replacing valuable and sensitive equipment, insurance claims and increased insurance premiums.
Incorporating the latest technology, our manufactured surge protection devices divert the surge current directly to the ground and limit the overvoltage to values compatible with the connected equipment.
Each of our products solves a particular challenge:
Our AC power surge protectors such as facility guard, transient limiters, power DIN, Pro-line are designed for industrial and commercial purposes. While our single line and DC power protection such as coaxial line protectors, transient eliminators, transient limiters interface between network equipment and data/signal/telephone lines.
We also have patented gas tube protection.
