Lightning Protection for Servers, Data Centres

The server room can be considered the central data and backup memory of the company. This is where all your crutial data files and backups are stored, driven and powered by computers

Server rooms & equipment: Lightning Surge Protectors

Typically, a server room is air-conditioned and should be static and dust free. The importance of keeping this room in this state is crucial, and for good reason. There is a lot at stake here and during 'lightning season' - here is sunny South Africa this can vary between October to March - circuit boards and CPUs can be reached easily causing damage and hence downtime.

Lightning 'damage' does not always mean that it is large and visible. "Dirty power" or fluctuating power, or even load-shedding can negatively affect these computers. This can be minute, often invisible to the eye, but the operation of the electronics can still be affected, showing errors or malfunctions to a larger or lesser degree up the line. Circuit boards are sensitive parts of electronics. They do need protecting.

Installing the right SPDs Lightning Surge Protector here, that includes voltage stabilizing circuitry, is a smart decision. This is very important.

Lightning Surge Protection Devices (SPDs) that are specifically designed to protect this type of high-end computing equipment should be used. There can be no compromise in this area. The cost of downtime and the effect on the company's bottom line are at stake here. Invest in the right lightning surge protection.
