EV Charger Surge Protection

The numbers of electric vehicles on the road are climbing, and every electric vehicle needs an EV charger. It’s important to make sure the EV charger works so that you have the ability to go where you need to go, when you need to go. Having an EV charger is kind of like owning your own personal gas station: wouldn’t you want to protect it?  


However, EV chargers may negatively affect the performance or life span of other electronics. Just like HVAC and refrigeration equipment turning on and off, EV Chargers create surges that travel back to the breaker panel, potentially damaging other equipment in the building. Protecting your home from the surges generated by EV charging stations helps prevent damage to other equipment in the home.


As a systems integrator, it is important to protect equipment the best you can. EV chargers need to be protected to create better overall power quality in a building. It’s important to note that equipment manufacturers and systems integrators cannot take responsibility for any damage or failure caused by power surges if the end user opts out of surge protection. Once power gets into the home, it’s the homeowner’s responsibility to maintain it. TPD surge protection is field proven to eliminate 85 to 95% of all issues related to power quality.
