Electrical Surge Protection and Power Conditioning
What is an electrical surge? Electrical surges are overvoltage spikes or disturbances on a power waveform. Surges can cause significant damage to industrial systems, costing businesses millions of dollars in repairs and renovations, as well as resulting in the dysfunction of critical communications or power systems that these functions rely on. Why is surge protection necessary? In commercial buildings, surge protection devices (SPDs) are used to protect emergency lighting, emergency circuits ensuring proper elevator and escalator operations, computer systems, lighting, data centres and electronic equipment. In industrial applications, surge protection devices are used to protect machinery with safety interlock circuits, control systems and vital telecommunications links that keep the plants protected.
