7 The 3 Main Power Problems Brownouts – Inadequate power supply at the point of use which overheats your motors and entire electrical system that destroys your equipment and wastes KWH’s!Blackouts – Momentary or extended interruptions of the power supply, such as “Rolling Blackouts” which often overheat and gradually destroy your equipmentElectrical Pollution – Caused by external storm and lightning related surges or glitches, other nearby equipment, utility company induced sags and surges. Also includes power surges, spikes, glitches or ‘dirty power’ caused internally by switching, inrush currents, load cycling, and faulty in-house equipment.NOTE: Brownouts and Blackouts cause most Electrical Pollution that causes the most damage in in today’s ‘rolling brownout and blackout environments.Electrical Pollution Is the Most Costly To Ignore and the Least Costly To Eliminate!
8 Main Hazards of Electrical Pollution 1) High energy surgesShort-phasingHeavy ‘start-up’ in-rush currents in motorsTypical lighting which gradually deteriorates your equipment and often causes instant, catastrophic damage2) Long-term gradual deterioration of your entire investmentSensitive electronicsComputer driven systemsAutomationInstrumentationLighting3) All Inductive Equipment is prone to overheating, pitting, arcing, corroding which causes early failures, malfunctions and longer running cycles of A/C and refrigeration equipment. This leads to costly repairs, poor performance, frequent replacements, downtime and constant USER FRUSTRATION.Any overheating is a DIRECT LOSS of Electricity!

15 3 Main Levels of Lightning Damage Level IHeat Lightning- CausesGradual DeteriorationSee Only at Night6000 Amp SpikesMan Fights Lightning! …and Ike& MitchLevel IINearby Strikes WhereMost Damage OccursHear & See (Dramatic)6,000 – 35,000 AmpsIEEE 587 Standard three levels of lightningHeat lightning: Flashes too far away for observer to hear the thunder. Like sheet lightning, these flashes are created by lightning bolts, but are in thunderstorms more than 10 miles away. Trees, buildings and urban noise can cut this distance to less than five miles. It's called heat lightning because it is seen more frequently on hot summer nights when the sky overhead is clear. Often, air molecules and dust particles in the atmosphere refract the light coming from distant lightning, making the bolts or flashes appear orange.Here ComesLevel IIIDirect Strikes CauseCatastrophic DamageDeafening Flash> 35,000 AmpsStop Voltage Spikes & Surges before they Stop You!
