Can you sleep easy knowing that your home or business is safe from a power surge?
A power surge is a fast, unpredictable rise in voltage that makes its way round your home or office electrical system. This can occur when the power supply in a 230V line suddenly goes above 253 volts for a half cycle. Surges can be harmful as the internal circuits of your electrical devices are not capable of absorbing the high energy rush.
As the trusted commercial and residential emergency electricians in Adelaide, Star Plus Group offers a range of power surge protector services which will protect your devices from sudden surges.
Frequent voltage spikes not only irritate the employees of any organizations, but curb the profit graph from rising high. System downtime, important data loss, damage of costly devices or hardware etc. are few of the inevitable consequences of such power surges.
So if you are eager to ensure a smooth running of your workforce, your home or anywhere else, then surge protection is the ultimate solution for you. Surge protection, like power protection, is considered as a pivotal part of risk management across globe.
Salient features of the power surge protector services offered by Star Plus Group:
- Transient voltage surge suppression
- Available in both single and multiple power outlets
- Easy installation and minimum maintenance
- Automatic power shut down whenever the device reaches its maximum capacity of protection
- Bright indicators to inform you about the status of power supply as well as to alarm you when the voltage is out-of-control
Protecting your electrical items from power surges is often done by way of a simple surge protector that you plug into your electrical outlet. If the power levels spike about a level deemed acceptable, the surge protector diverts the excess energy into its grounding wire. This is your best minimum protection for individual or groups of items.
But the better way to protect your electrical items is to have a surge arrestor installed to protect all of the circuits in your entire building. The surge arrestor installation is done at the switchboard, and protects you against surges in power, usually up to around 6000 volts. Higher rated systems are also available if required e.g. commercial situations.
Unplug items if applicable
Of course the alternative way to protect against power surges is to unplug your appliances whenever they are not in use!
No power surge can damage an appliance that isn’t plugged in, and it is also a smart move for conserving energy as well as staying safe. This is not always practical of course – but it is an option.
Why we are so vulnerable?
Most modern equipment (computers etc), and appliances – rely on electronics to function, and they need a steady rate of power to be able to operate effectively – which makes them extremely vulnerable to damage from power surges.
So please take surge protection installation into consideration – for the sake of your existing electrical items, and before you start using that new computer, appliance, or equipment item.
