What is Surge Protection Device

Surge Protection Device
Surge protective devices (SPDs) are primarily designed to safeguard electrical and mechanical equipment against temporary excess voltage and/or current.

The potential disruption and cost to a business or organisation not protected against surge protection is often difficult to quantify, but in the modern world where so many rely on uninterrupted functioning of IT systems it doesn’t take too much imagination to project the effect to a business that without warning suddenly looses all access and dependency of it’s IT systems.

The modern world has long taken for granted the need to protect the fabric and contents of buildings and structures against the effects of lightning but it only recently that a greater appreciation has been established for the need to protect IT infrastructure following a notable increase in insurance claims related to damage and loss caused by surge related damage.
