April 24, 2014


 

Mersen (formerly Ferraz Shawmut) is pleased to announce the availability of a new video entitled, “Indirect Lightning Strikes and Mersen’s Surge-Trap® SPDs.” 

 

Mersen, an industry pioneer in surge protection technology, developed this video to show the physical and monetary impact of indirect lightning strikes. While many people are familiar with the damage that a lightning strike can inflict, fewer people are knowledgeable about the dangers of indirect lightning strikes. The video shows how Mersen employee Kent Walker, who is also a local volunteer fire department lieutenant and EMT, was affected when his neighbor’s house was damaged by an indirect lightning strike.

 

Mersen’s world-class suite of surge protective devices was developed to protect both commercial and industrial facilities as well as residential properties from overvoltage, transient spikes, and surge events. Surge-Trap SPDs meet UL1449 3rd Edition standards and feature Mersen's industry leading patented TPMOV® technology inside. Mersen's Surge-Trap SPDs provide advanced overvoltage protection to meet today's toughest requirements for proven and safe facility-wide protection.
