Industries that use electronic machines or components are well aware that fluctuations in the power flow can potentially bring down their entire operations, especially if they do not have adequate surge protection. Whether it is lightning strikes, electrostatic discharges, or switching operations, there are many reasons why a surge may occur. The cause of the surge determines the duration and amplitude of the surge voltage. This is where surge protection equipment comes in. Essentially, it cuts off or diverts the overflow of electricity to prevent the excess voltage surge from passing through or coming in contact with sensitive electronic components.
Without surge protection, a sudden spike could have devastating effects on your machinery, operations and business. Read on to know more about surge protection equipment, and its criticality for certain industries.
Even a momentary variation in the electrical current, voltage or frequency can damage the circuity, or cause malfunctions and data loss in the computers or data processors attached to your machinery and equipment. Although often overlooked or underestimated, surge protection equipment could be the invisible lifeline of any business. It is even more critical in an industrial setup, as compared to residential or small businesses, due to a number of reasons:
Installing surge protection equipment into primary or adjacent systems is critical for most industries. Instead of being an afterthought, surge protection plans should be an integral part of system functionality across the board. However, certain industries may benefit from it a lot more than others. For example, companies that are into power generation and distribution, transportation and transportation infrastructure, chemical and petrochemical, and communications and telecom are responsible for keeping the connected world moving. Which means, any damage to their core or ancillary equipment could take entire businesses or services offline. Hence, whether it is limiting the downtime and expenses, or minimizing disturbances in critical processes, surge protection devices and equipment are absolutely non-expendable for all such industries.
