Power Quality, Monitoring & Surge Protection


Guest Speaker: Kevin Turner

Many of us work in or are responsible for the operation of very high reliability facilities such as radio or TV studios, production facilities, or transmitter sites. Among the necessary ingredients for high reliability are clean electrical power, grounding, and surge protection.

Our Wednesday, August 12th guest speaker will be Kevin Turner, the Northeast Regional Manager for Smiths Power, manufacturer of such brands as Transtector, PolyPhaser, LEA, Onyx and RO Associates. Smiths Power manufactures products for power quality, power distribution, and power monitoring through surge and EMP protection, transformers, and integrated solutions such as rugged outdoor cabinets for power Protection. They also offer classes and site audits for issues related to grounding, bonding and surge protection. Kevin will discuss these classes, general services, and specific products that have commonly been used in the broadcast market for decades.

A bite to eat, kindly provided by Smiths Power, will be served at 6:30 PM. We'll discuss some Chapter 37 business about 6:45 PM and begin our presentation about 7:00 PM. Please RSVP by Noon on Tuesday, August 11th by dropping an e-mail to meet@sbe37.org and let us know if we should expect you for dinner!
