DID YOU KNOW that nobody knows what percentage of installed surge protection devices provide really good protection?

SAFEGROUND® is the first protection device on the market that, in addition to indicating that it is properly wired, guarantees that there is an adequate path to ground, which is essential if the protection device is to shunt the energy peaks to ground efficiently.

1. CONFIRMATION OF PROPER INSTALLATION

Almost 25 years of experience in the sector confirm that it is relatively common for wiring errors to occur during the installation of surge protection devices. These errors result in the loss of protection or risks to the installation itself.

When the SAFEGROUND® LED is green, it means that the protection device is properly wired and powered up. Green for Go.

2. EFFICIENT SURGE PROTECTION

Even when equipped with surge protection devices, the electrical installation may still be subject to the effects of overvoltage if the ground connection is inadequate or in poor condition.

When the SAFEGROUND® LED is green, it indicates that the ground path is good enough to shunt the energy peaks to ground efficiently. Green for Go.

3. SAFETY INFORMATION IN THE EVENT OF INDIRECT CONTACT

Just as happens with surge protection devices, the safety of the electrical installation in the event of indirect contact is based on there being a grounding connection.

When SAFEGROUND®  can not detect any ground connection, it is advisable to check the installation status.

SAFEGROUND® THE PREMIUM SOLUTION FOR THE MOST DEMANDING INSTALLATIONS

  • SAFEGROUND®’s simple information makes it the ideal ally for both unskilled personnel and maintenance professionals specialised in ground connections.
  • Helps avoid situations that might cause power cuts, repair costs, with the resultant damage to your brand image.
  • Provides additional information about the grounding system, with potential synergies for protection and safety in general, not just for surge protection.
