Exploring Perfection In Surge Protection Offering

Provision against direct and indirect power surges Electrical installations should be carefully designed, in which the protection system plays a major role. Protection measures are added to safeguard the exposed parts of the equipments from electrical hazards. The voltage and current level are an importance aspect to be considered because every device or electrical systems are characterized by different range of voltage or current. If a higher level of voltage or current is forced into the device – there can be a chance of equipment damage or it may even lead to electrocution.

When we consider outdoor devices like surveillance camera, lightning fixtures, or telecom lines, television receptors, network lines, etc are some of those devices highly subjected to direct lightning surges. Equipments indoor are indirectly affected by these lightning surges. Switching activities can also lead to generation of over voltages. The


Exploring Perfection In Surge Protection Offering electrical/electronic gadgets used these days are terribly sophisticated, compact and sensitive – which seeks protection. Surge protection devices limit the excess voltage appearing across these sensitive devices. A circuit breaker or fuse connected to make or break the connection does not always detect this minute voltage hike which stays and leaves within 3nanoseconds.

Surge protection devices are categorized as Class B/Type 1: Class B type devices installed at the service entrance to protection from direct lightning events in 10/350µs.  Class C/Type 2: The switching on and off of devices plenty of times a day is another cause of high voltage spike that can gradually reduce the life of your appliances. Install class C SPD to tackle switching surges in 8/20µs.  Class B+C/type 3: An advanced protection unit that integrates the characteristics of both lightning and switching overvoltage arrestors.


Exploring Perfection In Surge Protection Offering  Telephone SPDs: They are used and placed on the grid to protected telephone lines and the accessories in conjunction.  Signal SPD: For legitimate signal transmission signal SPD are employed at communication system, satellites, antennas, etc.  Security and surveillance surge arrestors: Prevent huge electric current circulating in the devices and preserves the sensitive data.  Data line surge protectors: fitted to protect the data line and hence ensuring safe networking.  Oil and Gas Pipeline SPD: Provided to establish safety particularly for oil and gas pipelines.  RS 232, RS 485: Serial port line protectors.  Solar SPD: To prevent the surges from entering the solar panels.  LED SPD: To upsurge the life of LED fixtures.

Surge protection devices are protector segments that must be robust and rugged enough not only to limit the over voltage to a permissible level but it should also sustain the extreme atmospheric conditions.
