DIY Spike protector

Hi All,

Anyone got any thoughts for/against this component and/or its installation? TIA.

Hi Ken,
Thanks for the link, I will instal one, firstly it is inexpensive  and secondly it might help. However I believe that our busses are really pre serious electronics and as such are unlikely to be effected by spikes, however we lost a Fish & Payk dishwasher and an Asko washing machine to ,
presumably , spikes in the net. Our supply is very un clean resulting in all sorts of computer problems. I am changing that via batterie / inverter or just a simple spike protector.

Modern relays, stereos, electronics already have them.

You only need one of them to protect the complete car

It protects against a reverse current spike as when a coil (eg relay) is de-energised and the magnetic field collapses and sends the electrons the opposite way.

Hart,

That's a different type of spike.

Hartmut,

There is a world of difference between a spike on mains power and any hypothetical spike on our humble chariots.  A mains spike can fry just about anything.  I don’t think that it is a problem on the Syncro or we would have heard about it a long time ago.

Hart I recommend a surge protector.

Hi Phill,
re: "Modern relays, stereos, electronics already have them"

Does that statement include our 24yo syncro van electronics & relays plus usual aftermarket equipment installed?

Any harm installing one either way?

Cheers.

Yes it's been around for a long time.

I don't like unfused live cables. (fire hazard)

They are just a normal diode that you can get from Jaycar.

Just get a diode and run it from your cigarette lighter/interior light fuse to the earth connection near the fuse box.

Don't forget that it is connected + to earth and - to the red.

Actually these are not simple diode to protect against reverse voltage spikes - they protect against overvoltage spikes in either direction i.e it limits voltage to below 20V

Silicon transient voltage suppressors (TVSs) are clamping devices that limit voltage spikes by low impedance avalanche breakdown of a rugged silicon pn junction. ( from the website)

I wouldn't trust anything from that place.

Looks like a diode to me.
