Electrical surges and spikes can take multiple paths of entry into a building either through the main electric service, telephone lines, cable TV lines, satellite antennas, or even a lightning strike which in most cases does not need to be a direct hit to your building. With minimal investment surge protection will provide peace of mind knowing your equipment is safe from damage.
"Surge protection is commonly overlooked as an essential part of an electrical system until it is too late."
Businesses rely heavily on computer systems to support their normal daily operations, financial transactions and storage of sensitive data. A partial or complete shutdown of any business can create excessive cost in down time, loss of revenue, permanent loss of sensitive data and the replacement of damaged equipment. When a computer system is damaged due to an electrical surge, typically most business activities come to an abrupt stop. However equally to suffer damage from electrical surges and spikes are for example communication equipment, lighting controls, energy efficient LED Lighting, electronic ballasts for florescent lighting, production equipment, and building support systems such as HVAC equipment, commercial fire alarms, access control, surveillance cameras and security systems.
Electrical surges and spikes are more prevalent than one would expect and lightning is actually the least likely event to cause an electrical surge. The most common cause of electrical surges and spikes is from devices that are commonly found within all buildings. These electrical devices require high amounts of power to switch equipment on and off such as motors and compressors. This switching creates sudden, brief demands for power, which upset the steady voltage flow in a building’s electrical system. While these surges are nowhere near the intensity of a lightning surge, they can be severe enough to damage components, immediately or gradually, and they occur regularly in all commercial and residential electrical systems.
The demand for professionally installed reliable surge protection devices has increased significantly for virtually all electrical equipment. Power irregularities, such as surges and spikes, cause irreversible damage to electrical equipment, can impede the overall performance of motors, compressors and sensitive electronics. Electrical surges and spikes can take multiple paths of entry into a building either through the main electric service, telephone lines, cable lines, satellite antennas, or even a lightning strike which in most cases does not need to be a direct hit to the building.
A partial or complete shutdown of any business can create excessive cost in down time, loss of revenue, permanent loss of sensitive data and the added cost to replace damaged equipment.
