Voltage surges can damage equipment and lead to unexpected downtime. While GFCIs, fuses and breakers, and consumer UPSs help meet your facility’s safety requirements, only surge protective devices (SPD) can prevent the three D’s of power surges: destruction, disruptions, and degradation.

A power surge can happen so fast that a typical circuit breaker cannot detect one when it occurs.  

It’s important to be aware of the causes of power surges and take steps to protect your electrical devices and electronic equipment from potential damage and misoperation. A good way to do that is to invest in surge protective devices.

Be smart and stay safe.
