Your facility is full of expensive, important equipment that you rely on daily. Not only do down machines cost you time, they are expensive and frustrating for your team and customers. That’s why surge protection is a hot topic that you NEED to make sure is addressed.
What types of damage can a surge cause to a facility? The three main types are disruptive, dissipative and destructive.
- Disruptive is when a surge enters an electronic component which interprets the valid logic command. This causes the system to lock-up and machines to malfunction, which leads to faulty output or corrupted files.
- Dissipative damage is caused by a repetitive, pulsing of short duration energy, causing long-term machine or system degradation, leading to system replacement sooner.
- Destructive damage is a high-level energy surge that immediately results in equipment at earlier intervals.
With a minimal investment, you can protect your sensitive equipment or entire facility from surge events. Mersen’s Surge-Trap product line offers a world-class suite of surge protection products designed to keep your facility protected and save you from costly, unscheduled downtime.
