Power surges can happen anywhere. But 60 to 80% of them originate from equipment inside our buildings and facilities.

However, external sources are also known to cause havoc. Indirect lightning events, power grid switching, and damage to power lines or transformers are all capable of causing power surges in your facility.

It’s important to be aware of external causes and take steps to protect your electrical devices and equipment. A good way to do that is to invest in surge protective devices (SPD).

Be smart and stay safe.
