Surges represent the main cause of electrical devices failure and loss of productivity. The most dangerous surges are caused by lightning strikes, electrical operations on the distribution network and industrial parasitic interference.

Today, electronic equipment, IT systems and automation and control systems are used in all applications (residential, commercial and industrial).

A fault in one of these systems originating from a surge can have catastrophic consequences.

Loss of operational capacity, services, data and productivity generally result in enormous costs, many times greater than the costs of surge protective devices.
