Transtector Systems provides clients with industry-leading solutions for all types of surge events—from lightning to EMP and more. An INFINITE brand, Transtector Systems specializes in the protection of highly sensitive, low voltage equipment through its patented, non-degrading silicon diode technology and custom filters.

Transtector Systems provides its clients with solutions for lightning and transient protection. 

According to the National Lightning Safety Institute, 30 percent of all power outages annually are lightning-related with total costs of up to $1 billion. “Before Mother Nature strikes, we want to ensure our clients have taken the simple steps needed to minimize the potential for damage and costly downtime of a lightning hit,” said Dan Rebeck, Global Product Line Manager.

Additionally, transients, or power strikes, can stem from network issues, equipment malfunctions, or any number of anomalies and can cause permanent damage. Transtector Systems works with clients to provide the right surge protection solutions to protect mission-critical equipment from these issues, ensuring reliable network performance and minimal downtime.

How does this translate into risk aversion? “If lightning strikes a non-protected network, the damage can be destructive and travel an average of six miles,” said Rebeck. “However, installing a secondary surge protector on sensitive equipment downstream of the entry path can downgrade the damage level and greatly decrease the event length.”

Transtector Systems’ power quality expertise translates into a diverse product offering including AC, DC, and signal applications as well as integrated cabinets, power distribution panels, and EMP hardened devices. Additionally, power and signal integrity have a role in critical asset protection, especially for the telecommunications industry.

Transtector Systems offers solutions for critical electronic equipment and communication links for strategic business functions, growth, and stability. The company provides reliable and efficient solutions engineered to protect communications networks for the following applications:

  • Data Center
  • Military
  • Security
  • Telecommunications
  • Energy
  • Medical
  • Rail
  • First Responders

Transtector Systems is also experienced in preventing HEMP (High Altitude Electromagnetic Pulse) threats. “Especially with civil infrastructure networks, there’s no substitute for experience, technology, and reliability when determining HEMP surge protection requirements,” added Rebeck. “Our company has an entire product portfolio called ‘HEMP Tested’ to bring solutions to mission-critical communications.”

Transtector Systems, a subsidiary of Infinite Electronics, is headquartered in Hayden, Idaho with a mission to provide a competitive advantage in the design and production of the highest quality power and signal protection products.
