Binghamton, NY (PRWEB) March 24, 2011

Emerson Network Power, a business of Emerson, and the global leader in enabling Business-Critical Continuity is promoting its recently opened, best-in-class test lab with an entertaining series of Surge and Destroy YouTube videos demonstrating many of its capabilities. Starring Surgeo a fun-loving engineer with a penchant for blowing things up. Surgeo shows viewers the real power behind electricity and the potential consequences of power surges by blowing up household items such as a coffee maker, laptop, alarm clock, and more.


The Emerson Network Power test lab is one of only a few in the world capable of producing up to 250,000 amps of surge and impulse durations of 20 to 350 microseconds. Thats meant to simulate a high-energy power surge, which could be similar to a lightning strike and as viewers see, that can do a tremendous amount of damage to everyday household items.


While the lab is designed to enhance product performance and safety for surge protection devices, the company had a little fun showing off the capabilities. The goal for the series is to educate customers about the importance of surge protective devices, in an entertaining way. Certainly, results like those demonstrated in the videos are highly unlikely, with proper surge protection in place.
