Practical lightning and surge voltage protection set for building installations

March 06, 2012 // By Julien Happich
The “surge voltage protection set” from Phoenix Contact offers safety and protection for the entire electrical installation. It provides powerful basic protection for residential properties, offices, medical practices, and workshops. The protective devices increase the availability of sensitive electrical and electronic equipment such as computers, telephone systems, and entertainment electronics.

The set comprises a collection of protective devices that are harmonized and coordinated with one another. The new type 1 lightning current arrester is the basic component, which also fulfills the requirements placed on type 2 surge arresters. Three device protection connectors protect the power connectors of end devices. Two of these connectors have an additional signal cable connection, which allows a TV/SAT and a telecommunication terminal device to be protected.
