Protect Your Electronics
Today’s sophisticated electronic homes are more vulnerable than ever to fluctuations in the electric power supply. Although PPCS provides clean, quality power, surges can happen. Damaging surges can enter your home through phone lines, cable or satellite TV hardware, and through the power lines. Surges can also occur when large appliances such as refrigerators, air conditioners and microwave ovens cycle on and off. To protect your valuable electronics and appliances, PPCS has access to a full line of surge suppression products.
A UPS (Uninterruptible Power Supply) system may be necessary to provide temporary backup power to such things as cash registers or computer systems. A UPS also provides protection against power spikes, surges, sags and other subtle conditions that may not be noticeable.
Wiring & Metering Requirements
PPCS has specific wiring and metering requirements. Please refer to the PPCS Metering Requirements (PDF) for information on meter installation and the wiring diagram which illustrates the correct installation of the current transformer (CT) sub-metering of off-peak electric.
