Surge Protection – How to find out if your SPD is working

Why You Should Attend

SPD (surge protection devices) are almost a prerequisite for every electrical and lightning protection system. Knowing when these devices are working or not can be a real pain. Usually, we’re forced to physically open up live panels to check if the plethora of SPDs is still functioning; very often, this task is made even more complicated on the data side of things, because there is no visual indication at all!

So, knowing electronic equipment is getting ever more critical to our ‘smart’ lives at home and in the workplace, it makes sense to have the peace of mind that comes with having all your bases covered.

Webinar Outcomes

After watching this 20-minute webinar you will learn about an innovative way that you (or your maintenance team) can chime into installed SPD remotely without having to open up live panels and check on their status.

This webinar is brought to you by our guest speaker, Sean Passant.
