Comprehensive surge protection is a requirement for railways but not all surge protection devices (SPD) can protect against rare or complex electrical events that can be especially damaging. While surge protection is required, not all devices meet key industry standards that promote proper functionality in a diverse range of operating conditions.
An SPD that doesn’t perform adequately can be very expensive for railways, and can lead to having to replace expensive equipment, meaning costs associated with downtime and maintenance. nVent ERICO Surge Protection Devices deliver maximum protection while minimizing the cost to railways to protect those critical assets without the unwanted costs of inadequate protection.
