supresor de picos de tensión

En Barcelona trabajé durante 3 años en una empresa de distribución de maquinaria industrial y una de las divisiones se hallaba íntegramente dedicada a "surge protectors", que en español es "supresor de picos de tensión".

Te adjunto un par de vínculos donde aparece el término.

Un saludo.
