Surge Suppression

Our Expertise

If your mission-critical facility does not already have surge protection equipment installed we highly recommend it. If you are not sure if your system has them installed we can inspect your installation to ascertain this. It is a small price for additional peace of mind.

 

Corporate Electric is the authorized dealer for Liebert and Eaton, who offer wide range of Surge Protection Devices (SPDs).

 

IEEE recommended practice is to achieve tiered protection by installing SPD equipment on the service entrance equipment; distribution panels; load centers and end-user equipment.

 

The power line that supplies your computer with electricity also carries the seeds of your computer’s destruction. In an instant, voltage surges originating from the power utility supply can destroy the circuits inside your computer system. Surges can also come from external sources and the most destructive can be a lightning strike. A direct hit can deliver thousands of volts and amps. But lightning does not have to strike your facility to do significant damage. Via mutual induction, any conductive circuit within a few miles of a lightning strike can still experience a several-thousand-volt transient, leaving electrical circuit panels and everything connected to them vulnerable to power surges. The surge from a lightning strike can induce high voltages that enter your building via utility lines, buried electrical conductors or water pipes.
