GRE’s SEL-20kA Answers the Threat of Power Surges

GRE’s SEL-20kA Answers the Threat of Power Surges LED lighting investments can cost thousands of dollars - ignoring the possibility of unchecked power line transient voltage surge can be devastating. GRE Alpha’s surge protection device acts as a flood wall that guards against transient voltage surges, enabling the lighting system to stay intact, and saves the costs associated with replacement. The risk of surge-related damage is even greater today, due to LEDs being more complex than in the past. Dimming and other functionality have resulted in more parts and circuits that can be damaged or destroyed by a lightning or power surge. So, how can you protect your investment, while still utilizing state-of-the-art lighting technology? Read more »
