Surge Protection Devices (SPD's) assist in the protection of valuable electrical and electronic equipment against transient overvoltages originating from lightning and/or switching sources. These transients can cause damage ranging from the premature ageing of equipment to the complete destruction of equipment within the entire electrical installation. Equipment effected can be items such as computers, LED lighting and digital TV's. Protecting this equipment may now be a necessity.
TYPES OF SPD's
A coordinated system of SPD's is the best approach, meaning that a Type 1 or 2 and 3 will be installed, as required, working together, rather than just having a Type 3 at the equipment.
