Re: StediWatt Lightning Protection
As you know, Water District 17 is located in the hill country,
an area with an extremely high rate of lightning strikes and
power outages. Our equipment has been plagued by power surges
and disabled by lightning strikes to such an extent that we
had thousands of dollars of damage to modems, CPU boards,
and network cards, as well as pressure transmitters.
To protect our
408/208 volt 3-phase, and our 120/240 volt single phase lines,
we installed the StediWatt Models S-1480-4; S-1208-4; and
the S-1120-3 series units. On the phone lines, we used the
StediWatt Power'Safe 622T and 625T, TeleMate series, and on
each computer we used a Power'Safe 626 strip.
Since we installed
the StediWatt equipment a year ago, we have had no further
problems even though we have had many thunderstorms an lightning
strikes. WE intend to install this equipment at all of our
other remote sites , and in our upcoming new water plant expansion
to protect the programmable logic controllers, motors, and
Thank you for your
assistance in obtaining this fine equipment, and we look forward
to working with you in the future." _Deborah S. Gernes,
A good word from one of our long-time StediWatt User's:
installing your StediWatt TVSS at the Highway Department's
multiple facilities, thousands of dollars of equipment was
being destroyed by lightning storms annually. The cost of
the StediWatt System amounted to less than one-third the total
amount of the actual ruined equipment we've had in the previous
Since the StediWatt
TVSS have eliminated any further loss of our equipment, you
could say that our savings would be much greater if you included
all of the related downtime and replacement costs. Ironically,
after the installation of one of our StediWatt TVSS last year,
it suffered a direct lightning strike and had to be replaced
under warranty, but it was the only component destroyed.
I can't imagine greater reliability and dependability!"
As soon as we have further need, we will be placing your StediWatt
equipment on any new equipment.
As always, it's
been my pleasure working with you over these years, and if
you have any questions, please don't hesitate to call.
