Power strip protects your end devices


Haven't you already wondered whether your electronic devices such as TV, video and stereo system or computer are adequately protected against thunderstorms?

Where are the dangers?

Overvoltages can occur during thunderstorms, but also when consumers such as washing machines or heaters are switched off. Overvoltages are neither foreseeable nor avoidable. Even if the building is equipped with lightning conductors and the electrical installation has standard-compliant fuses or Has miniature circuit breakers, electronic devices can be destroyed by transient overvoltages. The very brief overvoltage can, in addition to total functional failure, also cause temporary malfunctions,

cause failure of individual circuits or loss of data.

To counteract these dangers and avoid damage, only effective device protection and thus an overvoltage protection device can help. The necessity is regulated in the standard DIN VDE 0100-443:2016-10.
