UL 1449 SPD Testing Terminology Explained
UL 1449 is the Underwriters Laboratories Safety Standard for Surge Protective Devices (SPD). Surges are rapid increases in voltage and current that can occur on AC or DC power circuits that can damage equipment attached to these circuits. An example of a surge would be a lightning strike on or near exposed power lines. The strike can induce voltages on the power line that can exceed a million volt.

The SC-MM08 Line of Cabinets Make it Easy to Comply

One of the main issues confronting a small cell deployment is getting permits for the build and having them approved once the build is completed. Once a site has been identified, the permitting process begins. One of the main hurdles for approval of a permit is approval of the BOM that will be used at a small cell site. Electrical safety is a major concern of municipalities. Having a cabinet that is UL 67 Listed will address these safety concerns. This will facilitate in the approval of site permits as well as having them signed off during final site inspection.

Can a UPS Effectively Do a SPD’s Job?
Some time ago while presenting a grounding and protection symposium and explaining the differences between an uninterruptible power supply (UPS) system and a surge protector, an engineer in the back of the room yelled, ”A UPS is not a surge suppressor.”  While I gladly accept help from the audience and generally agree with his statement, some types of UPS systems provide isolation from harsh AC or grounding. However, how effective are they really?... Read more
Lab Test Confirms the Impact of High-Quality Surge Protection
Transtector SPD Protects Wireless Radio Equipment from Multiple Surges
 
Sometimes the effectiveness of surge protection is simple to demonstrate. So is its value.
 
Transtector Systems recently partnered with FluidMesh, a manufacturer of outdoor wireless Ethernet radio equipment, to surge-test radios, underscoring the importance of high-quality surge protection.
