Expanded use of electronics has placed microchips in everything from coffee makers to industrial systems.  While usage continues to broaden, the basic characteristics of electronics remain unchanged as does the fundamental threat: transient surges.  The consequences are premature product failure, loss or corruption of data, and time-consuming troubleshooting.  In a study by Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, the cumulative cost exceeds $80 billion per year nationally.
A misconception is that most surges come from outside the facility.  In fact, most originate from within your location.  Your surge protective device at the service entrance switchboard will not protect your equipment from internal surges.  The solution is not complex or expensive: a cascaded approach with appropriately sized and located surge protective devices.
