Lightning Eliminators Has Sandwich

Lightning Eliminators & Consultants is out with a concept in surge protection called the “sandwich block,” a registered trade name for a protection device that can withstand higher surges in power.
“It doesn’t contain a wire, which is the weakest link in ordinary systems,” said Joseph Lanzoni, vice president of operations. “It can withstand up to 1.3 million amps, and no station is ever going to have a lightning strike of anywhere near that magnitude.”
The term “sandwich” refers to the way Metal Oxide Varistors are sandwiched between two highly conductive plates. Because the entire face of the MOV is used, it provides longer life and highly reduced heat buildup, which are the chief causes of failure in other products, according to Lanzoni. Info:
