Surge Protective Device (See TVSS)
Surge Protective Device. A device that is designed to limit instantaneous high voltages. Also known as a surge suppressor, surge arrestor and transient voltage surge suppressor (TVSS). These units are satisfactory for reducing the amplitude of catastrophic events. However, they function by diverting excess voltage to the safety ground of the electrical system. In the process they create a common mode disturbance which can disrupt the function of microprocessor based electronic systems.
SURGE PROTECTION DEVICE. A device designed to protect electrical apparatus from high transient voltage and to limit the duration and the amplitude of follow-current. Device that is intended to limit transient overvoltages and divert or absorb surge currents. Replaces TVSS terminology
The Sp ee format is used for storing vector fonts. It originated on the X-Windows system and is a creation of the Bitstream, Inc. company.

SPECTRAL POWER DISTRIBUTION. A graph of the radiant power emitted by a light source as a function of wavelength. SPD's provide a visual profile or "finger print" of the color characteristics of the source throughout the visible part of the spectrum.
Spectral Power Distribution. A curve illustrating the distribution of power produced by the lamp, at each wavelength across the spectrum.
An illustration of how the power output of a given bulb changes in each different wavelength across the spectrum.

SRM Parallel Depot; an integration of the Storage Resource Manager (SRM) with a new technology for wide area data management, Logistical Networking (LN), which is now being used by several important OSG application communities (see Logistical Networking). The strategy of combining SRM with IBP-based depots is designed to provide an interoperable foundation for wide area storage infrastructure that can address the problems of in-transit data management through a familiar interface, but with maximum flexibility and performance.
