Power is created, distributed and delivered to the facility.
Power is distributed inside the facility at the circuit breaker panels.
Power is sent to the facility and consumption is measured for billing
Electricity enters the facility, is metered and sent to the panel. The panel distributes the power to the device for usage. Power flows through the device, is used and then seeks the end of the circuit…Ground.
Electricity wants to complete the “circuit”...
Electricity “wants” to flow at 120v. “Clean” power will be at it’s peak efficiency with un-interrupted flow. “An object in motion tends to stay in motion.”
In this panel. The panel distributes the power to the device for usage. Power flows through the device, is used and then seeks the end of the circuit…Ground.simple illustration: Power to the light is turned off.
What happens when the circuit is stopped inside the facility?
Much like water in a garden hose, electricity will create pressure on the system as it seeks a way out to complete the circuit or exit the hose.
The electricity “backs-up” into the panel as it tries to find the easiest way to get to ground, completing the circuit.
This “surge” of power is now sent through the facility’s wiring system seeking a way to ground. The extra power is delivered throughout the facility causing the electrical devices to run hotter, expel the extra energy in some form (electrical erosion), run inefficiently and damages the internal components, reducing the life of the equipment.
Remember, electronic devices are designed to run at a specific voltage be it 120v or 240v. They run cooler and more efficiently with properly delivered power.
A typical McDonald’s will experience 50,000 to 100,000 surges in 1 hour! Consider the surge impact of air conditioning units, furnace units, parking lot lighting, freezers, coolers, gaming machines, machine tools…..
Has this happened to you?? find the easiest way to get to ground, completing the circuit.
What happens when I turn the light back on?
Just as you open the garden hose, the power rushes to get out and complete the circuit. This surge also has a negative impact on the life of all electrical devices. The surge of the electricity back into the circuit deteriorates all electrical devices, reducing the life of the equipment.
UtiliGuard, total system surge protection will eliminate the wear and tear, increase the life of electrical devices, and encourages efficiency in electrical usage.
This improves the bottom line in reduced maintenance costs, replacement costs, downtime and a reduction in energy consumption
