Surge protectors are protective devices that safeguard electrical equipment against sudden spikes in voltage. Surge protectors are available as standalone devices and can also come built into the equipment.
What Do Surge Protection Devices Do?
Surge protectors kick in when the voltage goes beyond safe limits, blocking or diverting any excess to the ground. This protects devices from damage caused by surges. Voltage spikes can happen due to electrical faults or lightning strikes. Surge protection devices are often fitted with a warning light and can come built into various power distribution units. They’re sometimes called SPD electrical devices.
