NEW MERSEN VIDEO ILLUSTRATES THE DANGER OF INDIRECT LIGHTNING STRIKES
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.

- Surge-Trap Type 1 SPDs: no-fuse surge suppressors for indoor and outdoor, commercial, industrial or residential applications
- Surge-Trap Type 4 Modular and Pluggable DIN-rail style SPDs: no-fuse, fail-safe surge suppressors
