Protecting Electronic Systems Fitted in Lighting Columns
Electrical and electronic systems are susceptible to damage from the indirect effects of lightning strikes and switching events. Transient overvoltages (also known as ‘surges’) degrade, damage and destroy sensitive circuitry.
Surge Protection Devices (SPDs) provide effective protection against these effects.
This section briefly explains what transient surges are, how they affect lighting columns and how you can specify and fit Kingsmill SPDs.
