Lightning can wreak havoc with unprotected closed circuit TV systems, affecting cameras, recorder, amplifiers and monitors, nearby lightning activity can cause massive transient overvoltages on CCTV video lines which are routed out of doors threatening the whole system with:
- Picture loss and disruption
- Degradation of circuitry, shortening equipment lifetime
- Unnecessary and costly system downtime
All CCTV video cables which run outside or between buildings are susceptible to transient overvoltages caused by lightning, exposing the entire system to lightning damage.
The range of equipotential bonding and transient overvoltage SPDs provide fully coordinated protection against transient overvoltages for a wide range of electronic systems including rail trackside, CCTV monitoring and security systems.
