Compact transient protection range delivers high density option
WEIDMULLER 80 VSSC models have been added to firm’s Varitector range, providing high-density options for lightning and other transient protection for control equipment. Recently awarded UL (497B) approvals, these products provide 4- or 6-pole rugged, compact terminal-sized housings for Din-rail mounting. Products complement existing SPD II range aimed at low voltage power distribution applications, to complete an extensive Din-rail mounted surge protection offering for industrial installations. Both ranges provide a combination of wire-to-ground and wire-to-wire protection, include high quality terminations for field connections, and also make a ground path via the (grounded) Din-rail. A combination of gas discharge tubes, varistors and suppression diodes, in single- or multi-stage configuration are used to protect nominal voltages between 5Vdc and 230Vac.
