Power Surges / Transient Over-voltages
Power surges or transient over-voltages can be caused in two ways: either as the secondary effect of a lightning strike (up to a kilometre away), or by the electrical switching of large inductive loads (such as motors and transformers). They may last less than a fraction of a second, but they are powerful and potentially highly destructive causing:
- Disruption to system operations
- Degradation of equipment components
- Destroying components and circuit boards
- Causing costly and unnecessary downtime
Nimbus LP can supply and install effective protection from lightning surges and over-voltages using components supplied by leading surge protection manufacturers designed specifically for:
- Mains power supplies
- Data and telecoms equipment
- Computer networks
- RF, CCTV, rail and CATV systems
We at Nimbus can provide a ‘free of charge’ site survey for our customers together with a supply only service which offers significant discounts from the UK’s main transient/surge suppliers.
Additionally, we offer an installation service which can include ‘out of hours’ working to meet our customers’ requirements during those all too infrequent ‘shut-down’ maintenance periods.
