How Do Surge Protectors Work
- Jul 28, 2018 -

The role of the surge protector is to limit the instantaneous overvoltage of the incoming power line and signal transmission line to the voltage range that the equipment or system can withstand, or to discharge a powerful lightning current into the ground to protect the protected equipment or system from the protected equipment or system. Damaged and damaged.

The type and structure of the surge protector varies from application to application, but it should contain at least one non-linear voltage limiting component. The basic components used in surge protectors are: discharge gap, gas-filled discharge tube, varistor, suppression diode and choke coil.
