Binghamton, NY (PRWEB) October 13, 2011
Emerson Network Power Surge Protection, a business unit of Emerson Network Power, has announced the winners of its recent What Do You Want Zapped Next? contest.
As part of the ongoing Surge and Destroy video series, geeky-yet-cool host Surgeo has already zapped common household items like a laptop, alarm clock, coffee maker, light bulb and more.
Viewers were asked to submit suggestions for items theyd like to see get zapped with significant amps in Emersons state-of-the-art testing lab and high-tech facilities.
Two winners were selected – both suggested surging up a PLC network interface. They both won a Kill A Watt Power Monitor, which allows them to assess their energy use at home and make smarter decisions on what to turn on or turn off to reduce consumption and lower bills.
In addition to these winners, the first 50 people who submitted zappable ideas online received Keep At It Til It Hertz T-shirts.
Stay tuned in the coming months for a NEW Surge and Destroy video featuring the PLC network interface being blown up. It will be filmed at the Binghamton lab, which is one of only a few in the world capable of producing up to 250,000 amps of surge, with impulse durations of 20 to 350 microseconds. That is equivalent to the energy of a lightning strike.
These videos are intended to show the true power of an electrical surge and the damage it can do to reinforce the need for surge protection.
