The priority you give to overvoltage protection depends on your willingness to take risks! Perhaps you think "it’ll never happen to me". Then you won’t have lost anything, but will have gained only very little. However, the subject of overvoltage is then a daily worry for you. But if you wish to be on the safe side, you should include overvoltage protection in your corporate strategy. You will profit from such an investment in operational safety and can prevent a disaster with Weidmuller's surge protection for power, signal and data. In addition, electrical systems are considerably more sensitive to the indirect electrical discharge a lightning bolt can produce. Lightning strikes can generate secondary voltages in anything that conducts and can therefore seriously endanger the insulation of electrical equipment.
