Lightning and Your Credit Card Processing Equipment

LightningWith the recent thunderstorms that have been happening we have been getting calls from customers about their equipment not working anymore. Please plug your equipment into a surge protector and not directly into the wall. Almost every time we troubleshoot equipment after a lightning storm, the mother board is blown out from an electrical surge and the hardware was plugged directly into the outlet. You can get great surge protectors at various hardware and retail stores and they are relatively inexpensive and can save your hardware from lightning strikes.
