Voltage Surge Suppression System for Dedham, MA Residents

Boston Lightning Rod Co., Inc. has been protecting our area from lightning strikes for nearly 150 years. One way that we do this is through our Transient Voltage Surge Suppression (TVSS) systems. Transient surges, also called impulses or spikes, are temporary rises in voltage and electrical currents that can occur from a lightning strike. These bursts can send thousands of volts of electricity into your home over a period of 1-10 microseconds, disrupting, damaging, and destroying your valuable electrical systems and equipment.

What Is a TVSS System?

Surge suppression systems are devices that are designed to do two things: provide a place for transient current and voltage to go where it can be equalized, and to absorb or divert any excess energy to anywhere but the protected load. TVSS Systems are designed to be reliable, effective, and durable to a point where they can repeat this process hundreds of thousands of times without fail.

Why Are TVSS Systems Beneficial?

These days, our lives are entirely dependent on electricity. Our phones, computers, appliances, air conditioners, and other devices need some kind of surge suppression to keep things running smoothly. Our TVSS systems supply these devices with a steady stream of the necessary amount of energy and divert any excess energy into the ground.

Our TVSS System

Our TVSS units for AC panel applications are UL 1449 2nd Edition Listed, UL 1283 Listed, and CE Certified. They are listed as TVSS and Secondary Surge Arresters. All units are designed and built in the USA in a modern ISO 9001 manufacturing facility. These units have both component-level thermal fusing and patent-pending internal circuit board mounted over-current fusing.

The multi-stage hybrid network, all mode design, and circuit encapsulation offer the lowest “Let through Voltage” in the industry, and Boston Lightning Rod can offer both internal and external designs in many styles and options. The voltage range is 1 to 4160V with peak surge ratings of 90 to 900KA per phase. Our TVSS Supplier, Surge Suppression Incorporated, warranties all these units for a period of 25 years from the date of installation.
