SCADA Systems Surge Protection

APS LLC | SCADA Systems Surge Protectors

For proper SCADA Systems surge protection, install high quality, high performance surge protectors. These unique SPDs deliver Full Spectrum ProtectionTM for critical and sensitive process control systems that competitors can't.

Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) Systems are critical in today's automated environments. However, these systems are loaded with sensitive electronic equipment.

SCADA systems are increasingly susceptible to damaging transient voltage found in today's commercial and industrial environments.

SCADA SPDs Should Defend Against Two Distinct
Types of Surge Damage. Many Don't. Ours Do.

In commercial and industrial settings, there are multiple surge types present. SPDs that effectively protect against both Impulse and RingWave type transients in all-modes provide the highest level of protection

Many SPD designs primarily focus on Impulse type protection. SCADA systems can be severely damaged by Impulse Surges. External, remote connected devices increase the exposure of these systems to lightning activity. However, SCADA electronics are increasingly at risk from repetitive RingWave transients.

Important Note: Few surge protectors address RingWave surges effectively. This includes protectors with EMI/RFI Technology. Our SPDs do.

Critical SCADA equipment, especially PLCs and RTUs need surge protectors that defend against both Impulse and RingWave type surges. Our SPDs are specifically built to perform in all modes against Impulse and RingWave Transients. This is Full Spectrum ProtectionTM.

RingWave Surges Cause Damage To SCADA Systems

RTUs, PLCs and other SCADA systems equipment are being disrupted and damaged by RingWave surges. Most RingWaves go past a standard surge protectors impulse or fixed clamping protection technology. Fixed clamping is not designed to mitigate RingWave transients. EMI/RFI circuitry is not designed for RingWave transient protection either.

A SPD with both Fixed-Clamping and EMI/RFI Technology only amounts to Partial Protection. System disrupts and damage can still occur.

20% of surge related damage is caused by External sources. 80% of surge related electrical damage is caused by Internal sources. Most Internal surge activity are RingWaves.

Don't settle for partial or 20% protection. Reduce disrupts and damage with Full Spectrum ProtectionTM applications!

Susceptible Data Collection and Communication Circuits

SPDs for Data Line and Communication Circuits can be overlooked in Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition Systems. Data Line or circuits with external exposure create the greatest risk. Large external surge events and subsequent unexpected costs can be prevented with the proper application of SPDs in these locations as well.

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