Lightning and surge protection for AC/DC charging stations

More and more charging stations are currently being set up in private, semi-public and public areas. Therefore, the need for comprehensive protection concepts is also increasing. This applies both to AC and DC charging facilities. In case of a thunderstorm, the sensitive electronics for the controller, meter and communication system are particularly at risk. Depending on the location and characteristics of the threat, a customised lightning and surge protection concept is required in order to safeguard investments and prevent damage.
