A Way to Protect Your Equipment You will face a real problem when your high tech and sensitive equipment would encounter power surges. Some instances like lightning and car crashing into a power pole could cause power surges. Among these events, a lightning can be the most devastating because of the surge it can deliver thereby blowing your equipment to pieces. Lightning can give a surges ranging from over 300,000 Amps that will lead to two conditions. When a lightning directly strikes a structure, there is a direct effect wherein its resulting energy would find its way to the ground through the structure. On the other hand, the effects of an indirect lightning strike are considered to be more devastating since it is not as obvious as when it is hitting directly on the structure.
What Has Changed Recently With Tools?
Industrial switching is said to account 60% of all surges and transients and these are mostly caused by man. On the other hand, lightning accounts for around 20% of power surges and by far considered as the most spectacular.
What Has Changed Recently With Tools?
Be informed some of manmade events creating power surges, and these are substation faults, internal failure in a plant that would extend to all areas in the factory, and inductive loads when motors, generators and compressors are switched on. Also, if you are located at the end of the grid thereby exposing you to a large voltage variance, whether over or under voltage conditions and general interference. Weather related situations like earthquakes, tremors and so on are natural conditions that will cause also power surges. Power surges can also happen due to events with no real known reason why it happened. Know that all surges and transients can link to your equipment through power lines, data/signal lines, telecommunication lines, and poor earthing. In order to protect our equipment, the common advice we receive in the past was to disconnect our equipment from the power point every time we hear the sound of thunder. If you are at home, this advice still works in protecting your equipment from the 20% of the power surges. It is good to know that we have now today very effective solutions that will provide surge protection for all equipment without detaching it from their power source, and these protection are surge diverters and surge filters. Surge diverters, also known as shunt or parallel connected protector, is the basic form of protection that is designed to divert to the ground the large portion of energy from the incoming surge. The surge filters or also termed as series connected protector, is the method in which the incoming cable is cut and wired through the filter and thus having the filter reflect the load rating of the equipment. The use of surge filters is recommended on sensitive electronics to protect them.
