Commercial & Industrial Surge Suppression Systems

Surges Damage, Degrade & Destroy Equipment.

Most equipment is designed to handle minor variations in their standard nominal operating voltage however, surges can be very damaging to nearly all equipment.

Surges damage, degrade and destroy electronic equipment and machinery.

Billions in Damage and Lost Time.

Damage from electrical transients or surges is one of the leading causes of electronic & commercial equipment failure, causing billions of dollars in damage and lost time for businesses.

Surge, the Invisible Destroyer

We facilitate the manufacturing and supply of high quality Transient Voltage Surge Suppression systems for commercial, industrial and military customers. These customers understand and appreciate the value of surge protection for mission-critical equipment.

HOW SURGES & TRANSIENTS DAMAGE, DEGRADE AND DESTROY EQUIPMENT.

Beyond external surges that cause catastrophic destruction like lightning strikes, there are many simple operational activities that can harm electrical equipment or machinery – degrading expensive equipment until it fails. Common causes of internal surges include:
• Contactor, relay and breaker operations
• Switching of capacitor banks and loads (such as power factor correction)
• Discharge of inductive devices (motors, transformers, etc.)
• Starting and stopping of loads (simply starting or stopping your equipment)
• Fault or arc initiation
• Arcing (ground) faults
• Fault clearing or interruption
• Power system recovery (from outage)
• Loose connections

All electrical equipment and machinery has a life span and are designed to handle minor fluctuations in their operating voltage however, surges degrade electronics and compromise that lifespan. Effects of degraded equipment:
• Not operating at peak
• Less reliable
• Degrading faster than financially depreciating
• Equipment failure

Unfortunately, catastrophic electrical surges are becoming more and more common. Studies at the University of California Berkley are showing climate change will cause ever increasing lighting strikes – up to 50% more. As well the interconnection between power grids mean we are exposed to massive electrical surges caused on the other side of the continent. Electrical surges that destroys equipment means:
• Instant loss of productivity
• Unplanned major capital outlay

If It's Electronic,

It's at Risk.

Transients are brief but powerful over voltages and currents lasting up to 100 microseconds that can lead to everything from degradation to instant destruction of the component they reach. Your Southwest Energy Surge Protectors are designed to absorb power surges and save from catastrophic loss. No matter what business you are in, if you rely on anything electronic, you are at risk.
