Fire alarm systems are critical life-safety equipment that protect industry, small business, schools and residential buildings.
If facilities currently have systems in place or are considering implementing a new system, the NEC requires SPDs to protect these circuits and equipment for continued, reliable functionality.
Fire Alarm and other life-safety equipment are susceptible to multiple types of transient voltage. For best protection, install the the Right SPDs that will deliver the Right Results.
Transient voltage causes damage to electronics and electrical equipment. This damage is responsible for billions of dollars in losses to business and residential locations each year. This includes damages to alarm systems.
One External Surge event can cause thousands of dollars of damage. These large, sudden events can leave a facility without security system capability in an instant.
Additionally, unprotected systems can be damaged by smaller, more frequent Internal Surges. Internal Surges can deteriorate the system's functionality over time. These types of surges are called RingWaves. RingWave damage can lead to unexplained system disrupts and glitches which result in components experiencing premature failure.
Note: Alarm systems that contain "built-in" surge protection should be closely evaluated. These types of "included" protection designs are often times not the best protection options:
Reduce alarm system exposure. Improve system reliability. Install SPDs that deliver Full Spectrum Protection. Protecting life-safety equipment properly requires the Right SPDs installed in the Right Locations.
Example: View High Performance SPDs protecting Fire Alarm Control Panels. Protection grid installed using the best surge protector options.
Damage to security equipment and circuits caused by transient voltage is preventable. However, the Right SPD needs to placed in the Right Location to provide the Right Results.
Our line of SPDs are specifically designed for applications and protection needs of the security and alarm industry.
Top of the line Advantage® Series are High Quality, High Performance devices. These devices employ Discrete All-Mode Protection. SPDs also include encapsulation technology and use a multi-stage, hybrid network design to provide best protection options.
Industry leading Frequency Responsive Circuitry™ option is available with this product line. Including the FRCTM option provides Full Spectrum Protection for critical electronics and sensitive electrical systems.
Not many Fire Alarm System SPDs provide High Quality RingWave protection designs. Ours Do.
Our gear is... often imitated ...but rarely duplicated...
