©2003 Types of Surges Lightning Power Line Cross Excess current on the Communications line High Risk of Fire Injury to personnel Damage to equipment
©2003 Types of Surges Lightning Power Line Crosses Induction Current flow creates a magnetic field Two conductors run parallel and close to one another Field of one conductor can transfer energy to the other conductor Example: Power is first restored following a blackout Current Field
©2003 Types of Surges Lightning Power Line Crosses Induction Electrostatic Discharge Transfer of electrical energy from one material to another Usually found in dry climates Produces high voltage with low current Feel sensation at 4kv Maximum Voltage = 30kV Enough energy to damage integrated circuits (~35V)

©2003 Technologies Voltage Limiting Gas Tube Discharge gap between two metal electrodes Poor control of peak voltage Clamping voltages are too high Discharge times are too slow Deposits build on the discharge plates with each activating surge OK for electromagnetic switches, but not for todays electronics
©2003 Technologies Voltage Limiting Gas Tube Solid State Provides fast, precise, and long lasting protection Premium alternative to gas tube protectors Fast clamping at low voltages Performance can significantly reduce failure rates for both protector units and surge sensitive equipment Improved reliability makes it ideal for critical service lines
