HOW it works
The Novaris unit works as a example to protect sensitive electrical equipment by controlling the maximum voltage potential across the positive and Negative terminals of the switch board in a local area or the appliances, this unit protects against EMP voltages produced because of the lighting and also surges from the lighting.
as a example on a normal 24 volt system if the voltage rises to 34 volts then a short is placed across the wires to reduce the voltage and hold it at 30v and dumps this to the earth /ground system on the boat, once the voltage drops below 30v then the short is releases, This short can only be held for a few Nano seconds 8/20us with amperage’s upto 12,000 amps but its enough to protect the equipment in Most cases. after this hit the unit may have to be replaced but there is a fault display included.
This How it works is a basic overview of the devices operation, in Laymans terms that non electrical people will understand.
