MAXIVOLT – SERIOUS SURGE PROTECTION
WHY SO SERIOUS? – A SERIES OF BLOG ARTICLES EXPLAINING WHAT SEPARATES MAXIVOLT SURGE PROTECTION FROM OTHER SURGE PROTECTORS AVAILABLE TODAY
WHAT MAKES MAXIVOLT THE BEST SURGE PROTECTOR?
REASON 1 – SAFETY FUSING
Every surge protective device MVC builds incorporates safety fusing. ¬†The reason is simple.
Non-fused or improperly fused surge protectors cause fires and endanger their surroundings.
Just type “surge protector caused fires” into your google search bar and see for yourself.
Its scary to think about how many unsafe surge protection devices are out there.
This goes for plug-in surge protectors, hard-wired devices, and surge protection components built into electronics.

Non-fused Surge Protection is Dangerous
Mounted on the side of this cabinet is a non-fused surge protective device. ¬†The violent failure of this surge protector was so extreme it actually welded the door of the cabinet shut. ¬†Thankfully nobody was around when this occurred or the outcome could have been much worse.
Simply fusing a surge protective device will not necessarily prevent scenarios like this from happening. ¬†Fusing must be properly engineered into the surge suppression circuit at precise levels. ¬†Some methods of fusing such as thermal fusing can provide inconsistent results depending on certain factors such as temperature.
Maxivolt surge protection devices incorporate the most dependable type of fusing available. ¬†Safety is MVC’s first priority. This is why we say Maxivolt surge protectors are designed to be safe without compromising performance.
