Surge and Lightning Protection

A surge is a transient electrical fluctuation that happens in a fraction of a second and can cause serious damage to electronic and electro mechanical equipment.

They can be caused by lightning strikes and local supply authority “spikes” which can enter your business or home through the electrical system ie. cable television, telephone wiring etc and attack any electrical equipment attached to them.

Many people believe the most important issue is power loss or blackouts, yet the truth is that the majority of power faults are caused by power surges or noise transients.

Power surges and noise transients are caused by:

  • Lightning strikes
  • Substation switching
  • Variable speed drives
  • Electric motors
