Electric power surges can be a nuisance for your daily working operations. According to the US Energy Information Association (EIA), power interruptions averaging about six hours were experienced by the customers in 2018. Power surges can affect your electrical equipment and systems’ delicate infrastructure and render them completely or partially useless. A survey by NEMA states that about 41% of the people who experienced electric power surges reported loss or failure of electrical equipment. So, it is clear that electric power surges can be devastating for your operations.
But what can we do about it? The answer lies in installing surge protective devices.
