New surge protection technology offers performance gains
26 July 2015
Higher performing lightning and surge protection for power supply units is now on offer with new Safe Energy Control (SEC) technology with its non-reactive spark gap from Phoenix Contact.
All protective devices in the new product line have been completely redesigned and are now based on SEC technology. The heart of the type 1 lightning current arrester is a spark gap that safely impedes secondary currents. Blown system fuses are a thing of the past with SEC technology.
The devices are extremely durable and operate inconspicuously without impairing the protected system. The type 2 and type 3 surge protection devices are also designed for high performance and functional reliability.
The type 2 surge protection devices measure only 12mm per channel. The new type 3 device protection now combines surge protection with integrated arrester back-up fuses in a compact housing. An arrester testing device (the Checkmaster 2) is available to check all devices for correct operation.
The new product family is particularly easy to install. The base unit and plug can be rotated 180° so that the labelling on each can be easily read at any time and the connecting cables remain short. The Bi-connect terminals allow two connections per channel, allowing installation with V-shaped feed-through wiring.
