Surge protection design has evolved extensively over the past 30 years. ? Our speaker will provide an update on the surge protection industry and will expand on the safety standard, UL1449.? UL 1449 mentions field application issues arising from the use of traditional surge protection components, and explores the impact of temporary overvoltages on surge protection components. ? He will review published recommendations from IEEE Std 1100-2005 (Emerald Book) that cautions the integration of surge protection within switchboards.? He will summarize the forthcoming changes to the surge protection performance standards, NEMA LS-1. ? As an extra bonus, the presentation will include a live demonstration showing the potential effect of temporary overvoltages on todayâ??s surge protection components.
