Overvoltage protection devices, and the systems built upon them, provide a second line of defense against current and voltage variations in high and low voltage systems, thus reducing the risk of damage to those devices that are plugged into them.
Multi-leveled surge protection (a surge protection system) is only effective if it is built into both the high and low voltage grids and the protection devices can function in a coordinated manner.
In industrial environments, particularly in those areas where there is a risk of explosion, in addition to considering the surge protection systems’ central controlling and gauging devices, consideration must be given to the surge protection capabilities of the field devices, as well.
Our company has a great deal of experience in the design and professional inspection of lightning protection and surge protection systems.
In accordance with statute 54/2014, MSZ EN 62305 became the lightning protection standard, which deals with surge protection solutions much more thoroughly than its predecessor.
