Surge Protectors Guard Against Security System Downtime

As in any communications-based application, in security system topologies a simple surge protection device can be the difference between replacing expensive electronic equipment and maintaining operations when a lightning strike or other surge event occurs.
 
Often, security system equipment does not include integrated surge protection. Engineering protection into the application is key to the long-term functionality of the system. Put simply, some type of surge will occur at some point during the life of the installation; whether reliable surge protection is part of the system is a critical choice to make.
 
For security applications (like all surge protection installations), follow a few key guidelines:
 

  • Make sure the surge protection is properly sized, rated and grounded.
  • Install protection for power and data lines.
  • Address surge protection at the service entrance/main disconnect, distribution sub-panel, and at individual equipment—think comprehensively.
