How to protect electronics during a storm?


Lightning damage is not limited to just that to direct lightning strikes, but is largely due to the electromagnetic pulse (LEMP). The electromagnetic wave generated during the discharge is induced in the cabling of security systems and industrial automation, even if they are several hundred meters from the lightning strike, which leads to damaged end devices.

The elements that we must protect with surge protectors in such cases include: control and measurement devices in industrial automation (surge protectors for automation), elements of alarm system installations, such as: external sensors, barriers, signaling devices (SSWiN surge protectors), cameras in monitoring systems (VSS surge protectors), as well as devices in our home LAN (Gigabit Ethernet surge protectors).
