One of the devastating and secondary effect of lightning strikes is destroying sensitive equipment and electronics, causing expensive repairs and downtime for business enterprises. Therefore, It is vital for the companies to use Surge Protection Devices (SPD) for all the critical appliances. The Surge Protection Device (SPD) is a part of the electrical installation protection system. These devices are connected in parallel to the electrical supply circuit of the power surges that it has to protect.
Main Job of The Surge Protection Devices (SPD)
The main purpose of the Surge Protection Devices (SPD) is to protect the electrical appliances from sudden 'power surges'. You must be wondering, what do we mean by a power surge? A power surge, or transient voltage, is an increase in a significant increase in the voltage above the designated level in a flow of electricity. A high surge can cause considerable damage to electronic devices. Too much electrical pressure due to high surge can burn the wires and ruins the devices connected to them. Even if increased power doesn't immediately destroy your electronics, it may put extra strain on the parts of the devices, wearing them down over time.
How a Surge Protection Device Works?
A surge protector device is put next to the electricity supply circuit of the device, it has to protect from power surges. The surge protection device passes the electrical current from the circuit to a number of electrical and electronic devices plugged into the power outlet. If the voltage from the power board surges or rises above the normal level, the surge protector diverts the extra electric current into the power outlet grounding wire.
The Lightning Eliminators have complete range of surge protection devices for the critical applications backed by expert consulting support. For AC surge protection they have devices like facility guard, transient limiters, Power-DIN, Pro-line etc. These devices provide protecting ranging from 40,000 amps to 400,000 amps per phase. For Signal line and DC power protection their firm offers data line protectors, coaxial line protectors, transient eliminators and DC Surge protectors.
