After returning to 80, we built a 4,200-plus square-Walk home for our cousin.It has a variety of imaginable features and convenience: Multiple furnaces, one 400-Amp main electrical service, built-in-Built-in intercom systemEverything in the ice machine, indoor barbecue, upscale.You name the house.Lightning struck about five years ago, and everything in this magnificent house was cooked: television, radio, computers and appliances ---even the built-Intercom system.There are things you can do to prevent the same from happening to you.Lightning is not the only form of electricity that can damage electrical and electronic equipment.Power outages, power cuts and surges are equally disruptive.Even small surges or spikes will eventually disrupt or affect the performance of expensive electronic devices such as computers, telephones, faxes, televisions, video recorders, sound and microwave ovens.Damage may occur instantly or over time;The smaller surge led to a gradual deterioration of the sensitive circuit.The widespread use of microprocessor chips increases the need for surge protection, as these chips are often very vulnerable to voltage fluctuations.Surge and spikes are the result of an increase in the voltage of "normal" wires.This is usually caused by sudden changes or demand for more power, such as turning on large appliances, garbage disposal, air conditioning, washing machines/dryers, etc.The surge usually measures less than 500 volts and lasts less than two seconds.On the other hand, the duration of the spike is much shorter ---less than one-1‰ seconds--But thousands of volts can be measured.Any one event can damage an electronic device that cannot be repaired.In addition to changes in power demand, daily power company switching and maintenance can generate disruptive surges on your wires.Lightning, power outages and power outages are only part of the problem.The surge protector is like a sponge that absorbs dangerous excess voltage and prevents most of the voltage from reaching sensitive equipment.However, like a sponge, the capacity of the surge protector is limited.Once capacity is reached, the device will no longer protect your device and should be replaced.The insurer's Laboratory (UL) ratings surge protectors based on the number of voltage protection.The lower the rating, the better the protection.The lowest UL rating for this voltage known as "clamping voltage" is 330 V.A few things to find-And pay attention--When buying surge protector :--THREE-Line Protection.Surge may occur between hot, neutral and ground lines.Select a unit protected along three lines.--Fuse or circuit breaker.Stop the current when the circuit is overloaded and has nothing to do with the surge or spike.--Cheaper surge protectorThese are not designed to handle spikes at higher voltages.--RESPONSE TIME.Understand the reaction speed of the surge suppression device.The faster the better.--Cable line protection.Coaxial cable lines can carry surges and spikes.To fully protect the TV/VCR, you should protect the cable and the power cord.To protect this device, select the surge protector with coaxial cable protection.--Digital satellite line protection.Digital satellite lines can also carry waves and spikes.However, these lines cannot be connected to the standard coaxial cable jack.Select the surge protector with a specially designed digital satellite Jack.--Telephone line protection.There may be a surge on the telephone line.Phones, answering machines, fax machines and modems may be damaged due to a surge in telephone lines.To protect this device, select the surge protector with the phone-Line Protection.--JOULE.Joules are a measure of energy.The Joules rating on the surge protector indicates the energy or "over voltage" that the device can handle ".The higher the Joules rating, the better the unit, the longer the duration.The Joules rating is determined by the total number of MOVs (Metal Oxide rheostat.MOV is a component in the surge protector that absorbs excess electrical energy and keeps the voltage at a safe level.The more vehicles the better.As computers become smaller and smaller, electronics are becoming more common in our homes, and demand for spikes and surge protection is growing exponentially.Whether it's a lightning bolt or a power plant fault, you don't want external forces to destroy your property.
