Let-through voltage is the key to determining the impact of your power protection. The more voltage spikes and surges pass through to your equipment processor, the more problems your equipment is going to have. Typical surge suppressors, and most high-end filters, do nothing to address 90% of all power problems, which happen below 200 Volts. If your power protection passes 300 Volts or more, it’s useless to your business and the cause for costly service calls and premature board replacement.
DISRUPTS: Voltage above 2 volts (Interferes with systems logic)
Symptoms: Systems lockups, lost data, error codes or communication errors, “No problem found” service calls
Causes: Noise and spikes caused by laser printers, A/C units, refrigerators, appliances in the building
DEGRADES: Voltage above 10 volts (Weakens system components)
Symptoms: High unexpected PCB failures, premature component failures
Causes: Noise and spikes caused by compressors’ starts, commercial refrigerators, elevators
DESTROYS: Voltage above 200 volts (Catastrophic system failure)
Symptoms: Blown power supply and PC board, tripped circuit breaker, destroyed components
SOLUTION: Avoid these let-through voltage problems all together. Protect your business technology with Smart Power Systems Electronic Power Conditioners with TBF™ technology which clamps voltage all the way to 0.5 volts — a very safe level for all electronics.
