Reliable Surge Protection—For All Types of Events

Surge protection comes in many forms. So do the threats faced in today’s applications. In all cases, partnering with PolyPhaser provides you with industry-leading solutions for all types of surge events—ranging from lightning to EMP and more.
 
Lightning Protection
The sudden and destructive impact of a lightning strike can cause devastating damage to networks and the sensitive equipment required for profitable operation. The effects can be overwhelming—in the power industry, for example, the National Lightning Safety Institutes that 30% of all power outages annually are lightning-related, with total costs up to $1 billion.
 
While network engineers can’t actually prevent lightning, users can take simple steps to minimize the potential for damage and downtime due to a strike. Surge protection from PolyPhaser provides dependable security against lightning strikes, with minimal degradation and long-term reliability.
 
Transient Protection
Whether it’s caused by faulty load switching, EMP, or other power anomalies, when voltage exceeds the maximum specification of mission-critical equipment, the result is trouble. Transients, or power spikes, can stem from network issues, equipment malfunctions, or any number of anomalies. Although a transient is a quick, temporary surge, damage can be permanent. The right surge protection solutions can protect your mission-critical equipment from these issues, ensuring reliable network performance and minimal downtime.
 
Choose the industry leader in surge protection and you’ll gain innovative protection technologies, system-wide expertise, and built-in reliability to minimize the risk of overvoltage damage and help ensure seamless network integrity and performance without costly downtime.
 
Surge protection from PolyPhaser features industry-leading technology to address the risk of these momentary energy bursts. By integrating physical lightning protection, a high-integrity single-point grounding system, and appropriate surge protection—all through PolyPhaser —users can build reliability and safety into any application.
