All Leviton SPDs incorporate large MOVs as opposed to lower cost small MOVs in parallel. Large MOVs offer an improved surge current rating and greater reliability, which ensures that the product will perform for many years. Finally, Leviton’s world-class service team will provide on-site application support on an as-needed basis
As part of Leviton’s smart grid initiative, Leviton has identified surge protective devices as a smart grid component capable of improving the reliability of the North American power distribution system by providing a level of protection for electronic circuits that include, e.g., smart meters, communication networks, wind turbines and solar systems. Leviton believes that surge protective devices may also improve the environment by enabling sensitive electronic equipment, including computer systems and data center equipment, to endure for their intended life cycle.
