Electricity powers our lives. From turning on the lights and charging our phones in our homes to powering major businesses, we all use electricity. All
of our electrical systems use power panels to distribute the electricity around to where it is needed. This is where the problem starts. All of our
electrical instruments share the power and interact with one another creating dirty power. Cleanvolt technology has the ability to greatly reduce the
interaction and the dirty power from your electrical system making it more efficient overall. An electrical environment without dirty power gives your
electrical instruments a chance at lasting their intended lifes
SOLUTIONS FOR EVERY LINE OF BUSINESS
How does it work?
The fundamental purpose of a surge protection device (varistor technology) is to attract energy surges and dissipate them so that no harm is done to
the connected equipment that is associated with that varistor protection device. The issue with most surge protection technology is the limitations of
the MOV’s that are primarily used in their design, which does not reduce energy surges to an acceptable level that the equipment manufacturers
require for optimal equipment lifespan and reliable operation (+/- 10% of RMS).
is installed in the same scenario, it becomes a more effective path of least resistance for energy surging events. CLEAN-
patented varistor technology has the ability to react within the fundamental waveform and attract the damaging energy surges within the
Most varistors have a certain threshold and when they meet that threshold they degrade, making them less efficient over time to the point that they no
longer have the capacity to protect your system properly.
patented varistor has the ability to withstand years of surge abuse, and still operate as an effective catastrophic surge protection
device while keeping daily surge events to within acceptable levels of equipment specifications.
WHAT MAKES CLEAN~VOLT™ DIFFERENT?
CLEAN~VOLT™ uses a unique varistor technology that gives it the ability to handle large volumes of energy combined with industry leading
connection speeds. In recent times this reaction level was called clamping, but now the term more commonly used is VPR (voltage
protection rating). Tests for reaction time are represented by a half cycle waveform of 120v RMS. The “peak voltage” would be 169v representing one
full half waveform, not to be confused with the Full waveform (peak to peak 338v). Best performance levels found with other surge protection devices
pre-fusing mandate was clamping of 330v on the half cycle 120v RMS waveform. Since fusing to keep the end user safe from fires, these clamping
levels are now referred to as VPR and range from 600v – 900v on a 120v RMS half cycle wave form. NEMA has determined that 80% of the surge
dynamics in your electrical system are created within the “peak voltage”. In addition, equipment manufactures state within their owners manuals
“Connected equipment has a 10% +/- tolerance of RMS voltage”. These are 2 main reasons you require an SPD that has the ability and robust nature
to be able to participate within these levels without degradation.
The difference between CLEAN~VOLT™ and other surge protection devices begin with the varistor. CLEAN~VOLT™ uses a patented varistor
technology atypical of ‘MOV’s’. In the event of a surge above 132v on a 120v (RMS), CLEAN~VOLT™ acts as a path of least resistance for the
surge dynamics that try to enter the system or are generated within the system. This affords your system an acceptable environment for your
electronics & electrical devices to operate.
CLEAN~VOLT™ attracts surge dynamics with no degradation from day to day operation, unless the discharge threshold is exceeded within an 8 x 20
micro pulse waveform during a large catastrophic event (determined by CSA original C62.1 lightning arrester standards). In the event of a
catastrophic surge, CLEAN~VOLTs™ patented varistor is designed to pass enormous amounts of surge energy as a lightning arrester.
As an added benefit to our extremely fast acting technology that was built in originally to keep tolerance levels of 10% +/- RMS during a catastrophic
event, this same speed has shown to improve power quality. With the amount of electronics we rely on for our efficiency and automation strategies,
energy surging has been and continues to be a compounding problem.
The electrical community has been led to believe that surge protection technology has no effect on power quality. That is a correct statement. How
can you impact power quality if your SPD does not participate within the fundamental waveform.
is designed to dissipate an over-voltage event. Our technology neither contains nor uses internal fusing, and can actually provide the
critical seconds needed for your system to shut down and prevent further damage. This way, you have an electrical system that can be re-initialized
and operational with minimal or no damage at all.
