Space-saving Surge Protection From Phoenix Contact
- Published: Tuesday, 04 July 2017 10:15
With the Termitrab complete product range, Phoenix Contact now offers the narrowest surge protective devices on the market. They are suitable for measurement and control applications starting from an overall width of just 3.5 mm.
This means that the protective devices can protect up to 572 signals against surge voltages on just one meter of DIN rail.
The integrated disconnect device ensures safe behaviour in the event of overload. It signals the status on each individual protective device mechanically without auxiliary power. Optional remote signalling modules monitor the status of up to 40 neighbouring surge protective devices by means of a photoelectric barrier. Installation is simplified as a result: no additional wiring or programming is required for the protection modules.
Protective devices in a narrow design, products with protective plugs that can be tested, signalling, and optional remote signalling modules can be selected according to your specific requirements thanks to the tailor-made product range. The surge protective devices are available with Push-in connection technology as well as screw connection. Versions are also available with innovative knife disconnection and for Ex applications.
