Just like how we should not compromise our health and safety by staying home, we shouldn’t compromise the safety of our electronic equipment, either. I’m sure, like me, you have extension plugs and multi-point adapters around your home for your various devices. What if I told you that there is an extension plug that also protects your devices at the same time? You see, the SurgeArrest from APC by Schneider Electric is not your average extension plug.
Taking care of our beloved devices is a no brainer, right? You buy them, unbox them, read the manual (OK, not everyone does), plug them in and voila!—it’s ready to go. On the surface, that’s seemingly all there is, but…have you ever wondered about what happens deep inside the wires of our plugs and how it jives with our devices? Like our day-to-day interactions with our friends and colleagues, there can be factors beyond our control that may impact our relationships for better or for worse.
Did you know that there are so many factors that can cause disruption to your power supply? I recently learned that shared circuits overloading, motor loads shutting down, operator errors, and natural causes such as lightning are all factors that can lead to your power abruptly shutting off and causing irreversible damage to your equipment!
Tell me if this resonates with you. You’re about to score that goal; you’re in the thick of World War II action; you’re two turns away from the chequered flag…and then, boom. Your internet connection goes bust. Or worse still you have a power outage. I feel you too, gamers.
People often take their power supply for granted. Until equipment failure from a power outage or surge hits. I know I’m guilty of this. Perhaps it’s a good time to invest in a power surge protector or UPS (Uninterrupted Power Supply) to protect your PC, network equipment, and other electrical devices at home.
