Surge Protection Devices

To save the system from different magnitudes of surge voltages, the capacity or magnitude of the arrestor varies. The amplitude can range from a few millivolts to some ten thousand volts. Schneider Electric India comes with a series of surge protection devices that can be installed in the system to ensure protection from over or under voltage. To use this, install a plug-in, point-of-use electrical surge protector. The device can be plugged into a grounded electrical outlet or can be directly connected into the appliance. Lightning protective devices are developed, tested, and classified according to their international series of product standards, and they have defined surge protection functions and performance parameters to make them suitable for use with similar protection concepts.

Hence, it is imperative to have a surge protection device to safeguard your house, family, colleagues and friends from any harm. Every year, many electronic devices get damaged due to transient voltages. This major mishap is protected by surge protection devices. Surge protectors are also used in electrical installation systems for protecting them.

Schneider offers a wide variety of surge protectors that help in keeping your loved ones safe. Their Acti 9 range of surge protectors have been in demand since its inception and is preferred by almost every household and construction projects. You can know more about this product here.

What is a SPD ?

A surge protective device (SPD) is designed to protect electrical systems and equipment from surge events by limiting transient voltages and diverting surge currents. Surges can originate externally, most intensely by lightning, or internally by the switching of electrical loads.
