Surge protection quiz
The Protection I.Q. Quiz from Mersen challenges customers to test their knowledge of surge protection.
Mersen announced its online Protection I.Q. (PIQ) Quiz, which challenges customers to test their knowledge of surge protection. Surge-related downtime on machines can cost time, money, and resources to bring back on-line. With the educational PIQ program, design engineers, specifiers, electrical professionals, and equipment manufacturers discover how much they know about the hazards that can hurt people, equipment, and investments. Archived versions of earlier PIQ quizzes, along with downloadable PIQ quiz notes on topics such as arc flash hazard protection, solar power circuit protection, selective coordination, and overvoltage protection are also available.
