TVSS System for Homes and Businesses
Although electrical surges can be caused by a variety of issues, such as faulty wiring and downed power lines, lightning strikes are known to cause the most significant damage to electrical equipment. Fortunately, Boston Lightning Rod Co., Inc. offers a Transient Voltage Surge Suppression (TVSS) system that can help combat the damages caused by these unexpected occurrences.
Voltage Surge Suppression System for Residents in Dedham, MA
Our company has been helping to protect the Dedham, MA area from the effects of lightning strikes since 1873. Whether you need protection for your home or business, our TVSS system is specially designed to handle transient surges. 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. This can cause significant disruption, damage, and destruction to your valuable electrical systems and equipment.
What Is a TVSS System?
Surge suppression systems are special devices that are designed with two main functions. They provide a place for transient current and voltage to go where it can be equalized. They also absorb or divert any excess energy away from the protected loan. Our TVSS systems are made with such levels of reliability, effectiveness, and durability that they are able to repeat the equalization and diversion process thousands of times.
A transient voltage surge suppressor is a device that is installed on an AC or DC power line to act as a cutoff if there is a momentary surge of electrical power, also known as a “transient.” TVSS devices are considered crucial to the protection of sensitive equipment, which would result in circuitry damage or data loss if power overloads were allowed to pass through to them.
Why Are TVSS Systems Beneficial?
These days, our lives are almost entirely dependent on electricity. Our phones, computers, appliances, air conditioners, and other devices need some level of surge suppression in order to keep things running smoothly. Our TVSS systems can 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, UL1283 Listed, and CE Certified. They are also listed as TVSS and Secondary Surge Arresters. All units are designed and built in the U.S. in a modern ISO 9001 manufacturing facility. They feature both component-level thermal fusing and a 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. We 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.
