The majority of all surge-induced damage is caused by surges and spikes traveling along unprotected video, data and power lines. These surges originate from a wide variety of sources, including static charge buildup and lightning strikes. Left unprotected, video and data lines expose cameras, digital video recorders, network video storage devices, monitors, A/V components, and other network equipment to damaging electrical transients.
The Nitek range of surge protection equipment provides protection for both IP Networks and Analog Systems; including individual video, data lines, and power lines including network lines, coax cables, and more. Inserting surge protection in your video system and connecting it to earth ground prevents back-door surges from ruining your system and prevents downtime.
