Leviton - Type 2 modular surge protective devices

"Transient voltage surges are short-term deviations from a desired voltage level or signal that can occur at any time. Such changes can result in an electronic device malfunction, or cause extensive damage. Also termed "spikes", these occurrences take place as a result of magnetic field/inductive coupling or whenever the line current is interrupted. They can originate from either inside a facility, or derive from outside utility lines. Sources within a facility involve loads that are switched, such as electric motors that are turned ON and OFF. Outside transient influences involve utility grid switching."

Leviton's Type 2 modular surge protective devices

Leviton’s Surge Protection Devices can be used individually or as part of a coordinated application strategy, to protect sensitive electronic equipment, in industrial, commercial and residential locations, from the stress and degradation inflicted by voltage transients.
