Today’s industrial applications include a broad range of sensitive, valuable and critical electronic equipment, from automation and control systems to instrumentation and LED lighting.
Protecting this equipment from surges, transients and other power anomalies is critical to maintaining performance and minimizing revenue loss from downtime. Transtector Systems and PolyPhaser provide a broad range of surge protection solutions for industrial applications. What strategies are best for this application?
Improper grounding accounts for a large percentage of damage and misoperation of sensitive electronic equipment. Multi-grounding renders equipment susceptible to lightning induced transient over-voltages as well as steady-state noise caused by ground loop currents. These problems can be avoided by implementing a single-point grounding system and following the National Electrical Code.
