Outdoor Infrastructure Surge Protection

Outdoor Infrastructure surge protection is crucial for maintaining the reliability and efficiency of outdoor lighting systems, irrigation systems, digital signage, parking lot lighting, and mass notification systems. These systems are particularly susceptible to damage from electrical surges due to their exposure to environmental elements. By implementing robust surge protection, businesses can ensure uninterrupted operation of these essential outdoor systems, enhancing safety, functionality, and aesthetic appeal of their external environments.


How to Surge Protect Outdoor Infrastructure

Surge Protect Digital Signage and Disconnects: TPX-3Y208-F-100

Install surge protection at breaker panel powering signage and or right at the sign inside or at the disconnect powering the sign. Confirm voltage.

Surge Protect Pole Lights: TPX-3Y480-CN

Install surge protection at the base of your pole light. Confirm voltage.

Surge Protect Outdoor Lighting Lines 120V: TPD-LT120-20A
Install inside the facility on individual circuits powering landscape lighting.

Surge Protect Outdoor Lighting 24V: TPD-24V3W

Install on 24V circuit power landscape lighting. This unit can be installed at the transformer location and the base of trees.

Surge Protect Irrigation Power: TPX-3Y208-F-100

Install surge protection on breaker panels power irrigation equipment.

Surge Protect Irrigation Low Voltage: TPD-24SLP4

Surge Protect Outdoor Speaker Pathways: TPD-AmpPro-1000
Install at amplifier to protect against lightning and other surges coming in on mass notification and outdoor speaker systems.


The Importance of Outdoor Infrastructure Surge Protection

Protection Against Voltage Spikes
Outdoor infrastructures are often exposed to the elements, making them susceptible to lightning strikes and power surges. Surge protectors can prevent these voltage spikes from damaging the equipment.

Increased Longevity and Reliability
By mitigating the risk of damage from power surges, surge protectors can extend the lifespan of outdoor equipment. This ensures that systems like outdoor lighting and digital signage operate reliably over a longer period.

Surges can cause outdoor lighting or signage to malfunction, potentially leading to hazardous situations. Surge protection ensures that these systems function safely, reducing the risk of accidents, especially in areas like parking lots.

The cost of repairing or replacing damaged outdoor infrastructure can be high. Surge protectors are a relatively small investment that can save money in the long run by preventing damage.

Maintaining Functionality in Critical Systems
Systems like mass notification and irrigation are often crucial for safety and maintenance. Surge protection ensures that these systems remain operational, especially in times of emergency or essential operations.

Compliance with Standards
Many outdoor infrastructures are required to meet certain safety and operational standards. Surge protection helps in complying with these regulations, avoiding potential legal and financial repercussions.
