Surges can be caused, for example,by lightning striking near your premises. Lightning induces voltage surges in conductors and cables that can damage any connected equipment. Also switching in households, for example with fluorescent lamps and conventional ballast, can cause surges in the bulding‘s wiring system. The steadily growing number of electronic household appliances and entertainment units over the last few years has also increased the extent of damage. A single power surge can quickly lead to costly damages amounting to thousands of Euros, as smaller components often have close tolerance limits for the power supplied. If they are damaged, the entire unit has to be repaired. This is often complicated and costly. AEG surge solutions provide effective protection.
