Surge Protection

The surge protection solution is a collection of ways to select application of AC surge protectors are defined by standards. Coordinating them together according to the specificity, scale of each electrical and electronic equipment system need to be protected. Selection the proper surge protection solution will minimize property damage caused by the impact of lightning strikes and industrial overvoltages.

The Surge Protection Solution: The main advantage of surge protection devices (SPD), connected upstream the equipment, is that they work almost independently of the surge level: they will limit drastically the surge voltage under the voltage withstand of the equipment, avoiding by this way the failures. Selection of the SPDs: Important for the selection is the surge discharge capability. Therefore, when selecting surge protection, attention should be paid to the SPD Type and to its installation situation. 

Why do surge protection for CCTV systems: Digital or analog CCTV system consists of electronic devices such as cameras, recorders, controllers, monitors, network equipment, etc. linked to each other via wired or wireless transmission cables. Data collected from the cameras is sent to a control unit to be monitored by operators through the transmission system. Surges can damage or even completely destroy these devices so there is definitely a need of surge protection solutions for cameras..

The truck load weighing system in factories, construction sites, roads and industrial parks is often damaged in the thunderstorm season. In order to ensure the safety of assets as well as maintain the correct and stable operation of the vehicle weighing system using Load Cell, we need a complete and comprehensive surge protection solution for  truck weigh stations.

Surge Protection Solution for Intelligent Transportation Systems. Surge Protective Devices are specifically engineered to protect ITS systems from these harmful surges so that the system can continue to operate, even after lightning surges. The SPD’s are designed to react to any overvoltage that is experienced in the system, such as one that would be caused by lightning or switching events. The instant a surge is detected, the SPD is activated and goes to work. By catching, absorbing and safely redirecting the electrical surge, a SPD prevents damage or destruction of your equipment. In addition the SPD stops the surge from propagating throughout the system.

All the safety devices used in your facilities are very sensitive and vulnerable to lightning and switching surges. If these systems are damaged by transient voltages, then the entire protection strategy could be compromise : surge protection is highly recommended. The cost of fully surge protecting an industrial or commercial facilitie is limited and provides peace of mind that your system will be operational when you need it most.
