A device that shields computer and other electronic devices from surges in electrical power, or transient voltage that can flow from the power supply. Standard American voltage for home and office buildings is 120 volts. Anything over this amount is considered transient and can damage electronic devices that are plugged into an outlet. Even though power surges are so brief that they are measured in nanoseconds, they can cause considerable damage to electronic equipment.
This power protection device automatically steps up low voltage and steps down high voltage to levels that are suitable for your equipment. It can prevent damage to your equipment from power surges and spikes.
