While it is important to have your equipment protected in the event of a power outage, you also need to be protected in the event of other power anomalies.
Power issues can cause problems even when the power does not completely fail. Anomalies such as spikes, sags and surges are only a few of the power problems that can degrade equipment and cause software corruption.
A surge is a sudden jump in electrical voltage caused by irregularities in the power lines. When the surge comes through the power lines, into a business and through the outlet, the sudden spike in current can cause damage.
A surge suppression device can provide the protection you need.
Surge Protection devices come in many shapes and sizes. The basic job is the same, though. A surge protection unit is a device meant to regulate power anomalies and protect your equipment from them. Power anomalies such as a surge or spike can occur to one degree or another in any type of utility power.
Every business needs surge protection in place to prevent costly damage to electrical devices and expensive downtime. Protect your investment!
