With lightning you only get one chance. so get the best!.

The SPD is offered in four different voltages to maximize the required protection level. Protection is achieved by reducing the clamping voltage to a safe level that your system can sustain without damaging any electronics in the system. The MidNite SPD are designed to clamp a 115,000 amp surge! Blue LEDís provide visual indication of operation from a distance.
