SurgeCalc - Siemens TPS3 SPD selection guide
This guide identifies a facilities surge susceptibility profile from the results of our succinct questionnaire. These results generate a surge index, which is used to aid in the selection of properly sized SPDs for each IEEE facility location (C, B, and A).
- Answer each question by selection the appropriate answer from the corresponding pull down menu.
- At the end of the questionnaire is an IEEE category selection pull down menu. It is defaulted to category C, which is for service entrance locations. Click on submit to see the TPS3 service entrance recommendations.
- For category B and A locations, click on category pull down menu, and select the appropriate category.
Once the new category is selected, click on submit, and new recommendation will be shown.
Most consultants will print out the results and include them with their project file.
With the help of SurgeCalc’s susceptibility profiling, consultants can quickly find a calculated recommendation instead of just guessing or relying on a manufacturer’s representative’s recommendation.
