Surge Protection for Precision Cooling Systems

The number of data centers is growing throughout the world. With the increasing amount of information processed using the Internet, this trend is expected to continue. According to a recent Cisco study, global IT traffic will increase nearly threefold between 2017 and 2022.


To fully protect precision cooling equipment in data centers, surge protective devices should be installed on all critical branch panels and computer room air conditioners within a facility. Without these devices, transient overvoltages could damage or disable precision cooling equipment, leading to downtime, productivity and revenue losses. The losses can be easily, and cost effectively be minimized with a proper and thorough application of quality surge protective devices.
