The National Electrical Manufacturers Association’s (NEMA) Low Voltage Surge Protective Devices Section has launched an updated version of its website, nemasurge.org. The website, home to the NEMA Surge Protection Institute, provides information and resources to residential, commercial, and industrial consumers related to surge protection.
Citing a recent survey conducted by the section in which 71% of respondents indicated that they purchased surge protection after surge damage occurred, the section’s Industry Development Committee launched a campaign to inform property owners about protecting their electronic devices from lightning or voltage surges.
According to Committee Chairman Tom Colcombe, the mission behind the nemasurge.org website is to raise awareness of the benefits of surge protection to all users of low voltage electrical systems in North America. Educating users about proper application and usage is paramount to protecting these electrical systems.
The NEMA Low Voltage Surge Protective Devices Section encourages homeowners, building owners, business owners to use nemasurge.org, and to share with others information learned about surge protection.
