March 12, 2018 — The National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA) has published a new white paper that provides an overview of electrical and electronic equipment surge susceptibility: NEMA VSP 1-2017 “Susceptibility of Electrical and Electronic Components to Surge Damage.”

“The white paper helps the electrical community — engineers, consumers and technicians — understand the various transient conditions to which electrical and electronic equipment may be subjected. The intent is to create awareness and offer guidance based on real-world testing on protection that will be helpful to preventing problems with products,” said James Moellmann, director of standards/application engineering at MVC-Maxivolt, and chair of the NEMA 05VS “Low Voltage Surge Protective Devices” technical committee.

NEMA VSP 1-2017 is available at an electronic download for free on the NEMA website.
