The Principle of Surge Protector Lightning Protection

The energy of lightning is huge, and lightning strikes can lead to casualties and property damage. With the development of technology, mankind has developed many lightning protection products to protect buildings and equipment from lightning strikes. Surge protector is one of the lightning protection devices, mainly for electronic devices to do lightning protection. So how does the surge protector work?

1. The definition of surge protector

Surge protector, also known as lightning protection, is a variety of electronic devices, instruments, and communication lines to provide safety protection of electronic devices. When the electrical circuit or communication lines because of external interference suddenly produce spikes in current or voltage, surge protectors can be shunted in a very short period of time to avoid damage to other equipment in the circuit. Surge protector, suitable for AC 50/60HZ, rated voltage 220V/380V power supply system. It provides protection to the impact of indirect lightning and direct lightning or other transient overvoltage surge protection. It is applicable to family homes, tertiary industries and industrial surge protection requirements.

2. The working principle of the surge protector

Surge protector is an indispensable device in the lightning protection of electronic equipment, often referred to as "lightning arrester" or "overvoltage protector" abbreviated as SPD. Surge protector plays the role of the fleeing power lines, signal transmission lines of transient overvoltage limit. In the equipment or system, it can withstand the voltage range, or will make a strong lightning current discharge go into the ground and protect the protected equipment or system from damage by the impact.

Surge protector types and structures vary according to different applications. But the surge protector can protect all kinds of electronic systems in the state of lightning strikes. It can reduce the risk of lightning strikes and is a very important part of the lightning protection system.
