Microtek's Lightning Surge Protector 6 Amps protects the facility and structure from direct strikes. This device diverts excess voltage and current from transient and surges into grounding wire, preventing it from flowing through the electrical and electronic equipment while at the same time allowing the normal voltage to continue along its path. Best Solution For Your Home, Residential or Building Use.
What is a surge?
A surge is a sudden increase in the voltage (or a spike) above the operating voltage of either the telecommunication system or the power system. This increase in voltage can be to hundreds or thousands of volts but will only last a few millionths of one second (less than a blink of an eye).
How do surges occur?
The main source of surges is lightning which naturally occurs, but they may also be caused by faults or switching on high voltage power systems, etc. Surges due to lightning may affect either the telecommunication and power systems simultaneously or separately. Surges due to faults or switching on the power system may affect the power system only or may also induce surges onto telecommunication cables. One or more of the following mechanisms may cause lightning surges:
a strike to the structure
a strike to the telecommunication or power line
a cloud to cloud strike or a strike to ground in the vicinity of the cable or the house
UPS/INVERTER upto 1000VA.
