In the modern age world of industrial business, the equipment being used is almost exclusively dependent upon microprocessors and electronic devices, creating critical need for far higher levels of protection against electrical surges than ever before. Because of the extensive use of computers, microprocessors, programmable logic controllers and various other electronic components that are utilized in the automation aspects of machine programming, motor speed and tool changes, these systems are now especially vulnerable. Power surges are now one of the leading causes of breakdown, catastrophic failure, process interruption or premature aging and failure of equipment. Only through the effective deployment of industrial surge protection can manufacturers keep equipment safe and processes running reliably, ultimately mitigating disruptions and outages as well as damage due to surge related occurrences. Surges are typically generated externally through incidents like grid switching and lightning strikes. This is not to say that there are not also internal events that cause power fluctuations and overvoltage problems. Grid side surges outside of the plant can also produce power fluctuations that are seen facility wide. Regardless of the source, power surges and fluctuations have a negative and adverse effect on machinery and productivity across the board. Only through the integration of facility wide surge protection devices, applied  throughout the electrical distribution system all the way from the electrical service entrance to the single-phase loads, is damage mitigated.

Industrial grade surge protection devices are the only acceptable solutions to provide stable environments and mitigate losses as a result of power surge and overvoltage events. The patented technologies involved in the most advanced surge protection devices now can nearly completely eliminate damage to the sophisticated electrical equipment that in the past has been rendered inoperable or completely destroyed by lightning surges, large load switching events or other overvoltages in facilities operating with less effective surge protection devices. In today’s high stakes competitive environments, both business disruption and equipment damage must be avoided in order to remain competitive. The more difficult surges are caused by lightning strikes that happen within the general vicinity of the plant. Direct lightning strikes are going to cause damage at the strike point that is almost unavoidable, but the surge that follows can be mitigated downstream by industrial surge protection which prevents the lightning surge from having impact on connected equipment. Through the integration of affective surge protection devices, industrial businesses can run at peak efficiency. Raycap has the products and the technology to provide the highest functioning surge protection devices on the industrial level, assisting businesses and industries globally to mitigate costs and approve efficiency.
