Surge protection is an important component of electrical safety in both residential and commercial settings. A power surge is a sudden, brief increase in voltage that can occur in an electrical circuit, and it can damage or destroy electronic devices such as computers, televisions, and other appliances. These power surges can occur for a variety of reasons, including lightning strikes, utility company equipment malfunctions, or even turning on large appliances in your home or office.

Surge protection is designed to prevent the damage caused by power surges by diverting excess voltage away from your sensitive electronics and into a grounding wire. Without surge protection, power surges can cause costly damage to your valuable equipment and interrupt your daily life.

How Do Surge Protectors Work

Surge protectors are designed to divert excess voltage away from your electronic devices and into a grounding wire. Inside a surge protector, there is a component called a metal oxide varistor (MOV) that works by absorbing the excess voltage caused by a power surge. When a power surge occurs, the MOV component of the surge protector quickly reacts by diverting the excess voltage to a grounding wire. The grounding wire then safely discharges the excess voltage, preventing it from reaching your electronic devices.

Additionally, surge protectors typically have a fuse or a circuit breaker that cuts off power to the protected devices if the voltage exceeds a certain level, which further protects your devices from damage. Overall, surge protectors work by detecting, diverting, and eliminating excess voltage caused by power surges, making them an essential component of electrical safety in both residential and commercial settings.
