Power supplies are used in many different applications and therefore have differing requirements for lightning and surge protection. For example, the protection of a power supply in a critical industrial process is different from the requirements to protect supplies in residential buildings.
Phoenix Contact says its surge protection concept provides a convenient and ready-to-install system for all applications. The extensive range provides device protection (type 3) for termination devices and surge protection (type 2) in sub-distributions. High-performance lightning arresters (type 1) and combined lightning/surge arresters (type 1 + type 2) are available in the form of modules allowing for system protection for lightning strikes of up to 200,000A.
A new free brochure describes the different protection levels and provides a selection guide for the protection of power supplies.
