Surge Protection Devices (SPDs) for process control, computer, telephone and wireless communications applications.
Electronic equipment is prone to dangerous and damaging transients and surges which can be induced onto signal lines as a result of lightning and power switching. These surges and transients can cause erroneous equipment operation or corruption of process controllers resulting in system failure. Uncontrolled surges and transients create danger in terms of occupational health and safety and can lead to expensive equipment repairs, considerable production downtime, loss of revenue and loss of profits.
Telephone lines, industrial process control lines, coaxial feeders, and computer networks are all vulnerable to surges, which can be up to 20kA.
ECO offer multi-stage hybrid topologies to ensure an adequate surge handling capability together with a very low residual voltage.
ECO has available on CD the CRITEC® Surge Selection Calculator to help you choose the correct surge protection device for your application. Please contact us if you would like a copy sent to you.
