Surge arresters with pluggable 40 kA protection

8 May 2002 Circuit & System Protection

Surge Technology's locally-manufactured DEHNguard-T lightning surge arresters are DIN-rail mounted and can withstand surge currents of up to 40 kA. The pluggable units consist of a base section which, when installed, does not have to be removed. The pluggable top section houses the protection components and is easy to install or remove as no tools are required.

The DEHNguard-T are equipped with both dynamic and thermal visual disconnection mechanisms and provide a fast response. Faults are indicated by a green flag changing to a red flag on the front panel and their multifunctional terminal allows connection to conductors and busbars.

Typical applications include industrial and commercial installations in all types of 75 V to 600 V AC/DC distribution panels and boards.
