Surge protection devices come in a wide variety of shapes, sizes, and capacities. They can range from small units designed to protect computers, notebooks, and other electronic devices, to whole-house or whole-building protection devices. Even larger units are available for commercial, industrial, and high-availability facilities. Data centers are key users of these larger surge protection devices, which can provide up to 150 kA or more of protection and surge suppression to prevent the loss of valuable data.
Semiconductor devices are extremely sensitive to, and can easily be irreparably damaged by, even small voltage spikes of short duration. Smaller spikes will normally not affect household heating or lighting appliances, although electronic control panels could be affected. Large spikes, such as those that might be experienced during an electrical storm, could however cause damage to electrical fixtures or appliances in households or office buildings.
Whether you are a homeowner, a small business, or a large corporation, Power Analysis & System Services will normally have in stock a surge protection device or system that will provide the degree of protection you need. We carry Innovative Technology, Citel, Ditec, and other major brands.
