Necessity of surge protector

- Apr 26, 2019-

In recent years, with the gradual popularization of IT equipment, electronic information has become indispensable in this new era. However, today's devices are more susceptible to surge voltages than previous devices. Because the voltage level of electronic equipment is usually low and the voltage is so low that the surge voltage poses a huge threat to electronic equipment. Therefore, it is imperative to install lightning protection surge protectors in low-voltage distribution systems.

So what is a surge? ! According to the literal understanding, a surge refers to an overvoltage in which the voltage instantaneously exceeds the normal operating voltage range. Usually, short circuits or power switching can cause surges. Although the surge occurs only a millionth of a second, this moment can produce a sharp pulse that can seriously damage the corresponding equipment.

Of course, in addition to this reason, the natural environment will also cause a surge phenomenon, that is, lightning. This natural disaster not only poses a threat to humans, but also causes great damage to electronic equipment. Lightning is a natural phenomenon that we can't avoid, so we can use lightning protection surge protectors to protect equipment from lightning damage.
