Surge Protection for LED Lighting Tech Tip #1 from ABLE Power Products   Selection Criteria SAFETY – an important consideration in the selection of an LED Surge Protector The Problem – metal-oxide varistors (MOVs) are the primary component for protecting sensitive electronics from damaging overvoltage transients or surges. For normal operating conditions, the MOV absorbs random short duration transient currents, transforming the energy into heat. Over time the MOV breaks down and can no longer effectively dissipate the heat forcing the component to rupture and initiate a short circuit conditionRead More
