Solutions to Transient Surges & Poor Power Quality
Every facility has its own unique configuration and surge challenges. System incompatibility has become an overwhelming issue in today’s high-tech world of computers, printers, electronic power supplies, and sensitive silicon-based microchips. Mix this modern equipment with traditional electrical systems wrought with high frequency noise, transients, and surges – and you have a recipe for disaster and liability.
Electrical disturbances cost North American companies more than $26 billion each year. For large businesses, even a few minutes in operational disruption can cause millions of dollars in lost information and revenue. The price tag of downtime is often ten times the cost of repair alone.
A TPD System is designed to safeguard your power, data and grounds going to mission-critical components. A properly designed TPD system will solve many of the electrical failures experienced by residential, commercial, and industrial buildings. A TPD Total Protection Design will ensure a dramatic reduction in facility downtime, as well as protect you from annoying equipment lock-ups and glitches on a continual basis.
Transient Protection Design offers the most experienced power quality professionals to assess your power quality risk and design a solution based upon your individual needs.
Transient Protection Design will provide custom solutions for all industries including government, municipal, residential, commercial, industrial & manufacturing, houses of worship, and universities.

A TPD power system will protect your equipment investment from costly repairs due to high frequency electrical noise & transients. If a protection system is not adequately designed or neglected, the systems integrator may incur the potential liability of having a design flaw to insurance companies. Whether its lightning damage or small internal spikes eroding electronic circuit connections and making them unstable, it is the designer’s job to protect against this. When sensitive electronics prematurely fail, the chance of it happening again is double.
Because of transient surges, computers, satellite receivers, Ethernet switches, servers, flight simulators and all things with a circuit board in it can glitch and hang up at times, and must be reset. Whether it’s serious damage or just a nuisance lockup, there is a reason for it. In the microscopic setting of a circuit board any sized transient surge that is introduced into the system can and will eventually cause a problem – if a hand shake is lost or if a single digit is misinterpreted, electronic systems will lock up. Overtime blisters are formed and one day that one circuit trace does not work correctly, and costs add up for a system that did not work to its peak performance.
Transient Protection Design products will suppress and neutralize any potentially damaging spikes or surges in power. High frequency noise is filtered and reduced to harmless levels, preventing the long-term degradation of your equipment by transient disruption, far extending its useful life.
