Commercial and industrial surge-protected power strips are portable blocks of electrical sockets that supply power to multiple devices from one outlet while suppressing any excess voltage or line noise. Also known as surge suppressors, they have a durable metal housing, making them a good choice for areas with high traffic or dirty conditions, such as stores, factories, and warehouses. They have a flexible cord at one end that plugs into a wall outlet, and they can be unplugged and moved as needed. Surge-protected power strips are portable blocks of electrical sockets that supply power to multiple devices from one outlet and protect the connected devices from damage due to unexpected voltage increases.
Also called a surge suppressor, the surge protector absorbs the excess voltage and diverts it to the ground wire, preventing it from reaching the connected equipment. A surge protector's joule rating determines how much energy it can absorb before it fails. A higher number indicates greater protection. These outlet strips are typically used to provide additional outlets in areas that don't have enough wall receptacles for the number of devices. They are portable and can be unplugged and moved to another location as needed. They are suitable for homes, offices, medical facilities, and industrial environments where protection from power spikes is a priority.
