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

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.
