Surge voltages often destroy electronic equipment and systems to a large extent. Damage is not just restricted to industrial and commercial systems. Building automation and everyday household appliances are also affected. Without effective protective measures against surge voltages, one must expect high costs for repairing or replacing the facilities affected. Listed below are devices with sensitive electronic circuits that are therefore often destroyed by surge voltages.
Building automation and industry
Hobby and leisure
Apart from the costs for replacement or repairs, further costs are caused as a result of downtime of the system parts or even due to the loss of software and data. In general, the damage is manifested in destroyed conductors, PCBs or switchgear and even obvious mechanical damage to the building installation. This damage can be avoided with TRABTECH, the comprehensive concept for surge protection from Phoenix Contact.
