Choose Best Cooper Bussmann BSPM4208WYNGR SPD Fuse with Remote, 120/208 Wye, 4 Pole
What is the best way to protect your equipment? It’s risky to connect your audio and video equipment to unprotected power outlets. Lightning is the obvious danger. However, small outbreaks, spikes and falls occur every day. They can also damage your equipment. In this guide I will help you choose the best surge protector for your configuration or situation.recommend Cooper Bussmann BSPM4208WYNGR SPD Fuse with Remote, 120/208 Wye, 4 Pole
Overvoltage protection or uninterruptible power supply (UPS)?
Surge protectors protect your equipment by ensuring that only a certain amount of power gets to your connected equipment. You can purchase them as single issue units or as multiple issue power boards.
An inverter will do the same, but will provide an emergency power supply in the event of a power failure for a limited time. This means that in the event of a failure, the power supply has little time to save its work on the computer and shut it off normally. Some UPS units also reduce fluctuations in your power supply, which protects your equipment in the long run.
What is a Surge Protector?
A surge-protector is designed to protect any device with a standard AC plug from damaging power surges and disruptive line noise transferred through the electrical wall outlet. A surge protector may have a long power cord or it may plug directly into the wall, and it usually has multiple outlets for connecting equipment. Some surge protectors also include protection for phone/modem lines, network (Ethernet) connections, and coaxial connections for cable, antenna, or satellite TV reception.
Be careful not to confuse a surge-protector with a power strip. They look very similar, but a power strip provides only an extension cord and additional outlets, with no protection against surges and line noise.
You have options to protect against outbreaks. They include over-voltage protection, protective strips, a backup battery or surge protection on the wall. Most surge protectors use MOVs, a type of variable resistor. MOVs are low voltage resistant, so they do not conduct electricity during normal operation and allow the current to flow directly to the connected equipment. When subjected to a higher voltage, the resistance of the MOV decreases and begins to move the current away from the connected equipment. Overvoltages cause the MOV to wear, causing over-voltage protection to lose its protective function over time.Cooper Bussmann BSPM4208WYNGR Fuse Remote You can check price Cooper Bussmann BSPM4208WYNGR SPD Fuse with Remote, 120/208 Wye, 4 Pole
