Backup Generator Surge Protection

High Quality High Performance 3-Phase SPDs Designed for Standby or Backup Generator Systems. Get the Right Results. Get the Right Gear!High Quality High Performance 3-Phase SPDs

Surge Protective Device (SPD) applications for Backup Generator equipment provide critical protection from the ever increasing dangers of surge related activity.

Transient Voltage is responsible for billions of dollars of equipment damage and downtime annually. Backup or Standby Generators are no exception.

Note: National Electrical Code 2014, Article 700.8 "... a listed SPD shall be installed in or on all emergency systems switchboards and panelboards."

Reduce equipment damage, replacement, risk and liability. Improve standby system efficiency and reliability with the proper application of Surge Protective Devices.

However, they need to be the Right SPDs placed in the Right Locations to deliver the Right Results.

Surge Protective Device Designs Differ

Quality, performance and effectiveness of commercial grade backup generator surge protectors differ by manufacturers. At times, these differences can by quite pronounced.

For industrial, commercial and military environments, there are multiple surge protector designs available. SPDs that effectively protect against multiple types of transient voltage in all modes of the system provide the highest level of protection.

Many SPD manufacturers focus on Reduced-Mode Designs and Impulse Surge protection schemes. However, in terms of overall durability, effectiveness and reliability, true Discrete All-Mode Protection with Full Spectrum Protection designs are superior.

RingWaves Damage Backup System Electronics

In commercial and industrial environments, there are multiple surge types found in all phases of the electrical system. SPDs that effectively protect against both Impulse and RingWave transients in all modes, provide the highest level of protection.

SPDs primarily focusing on reduced mode, impulse surge protection limit SPD effectiveness. In today's commercial environments, RingWave surges are much more prevalent than impulse surges.

Important NoteNot many surge protectors address RingWave surges effectively. This includes protectors with EMI/RFI Filtration Technology. Critical Backup Generator systems need surge protectors that fully protect them from both Impulse and RingWave type surges.

Our unique SPD designs are specifically built to perform against both Impulse and RingWave Transients. Protection against multiple surge types with individual protection in all-modes is Full Spectrum Protection. These are superior SPD designs for Backup Generators as well as other standby system equipment including:

Backup Generator Communication Circuits

SPDs for Communication and Control Circuits can be overlooked in Backup Generator Systems. Circuits can be either powered or data/communication lines. Data Line circuits with external exposure create the greatest risk. Impulse Surge events can be mitigated with the proper application of SPDs in these scenarios as well.

However, they need to be the Right Data Line SPDs installed in the Right Locations to deliver the Right Results.
