Transtector, an Infinite Electronics brand, has released a new line of outdoor AC panel surge protectors with high-capacity metal oxide varistor (MOV) technology. They effectively protect AC power networks and local AC equipment from transient surges and EMI interference.
The new line of outdoor MOV AC panel surge protectors was designed to especially meet the needs of the telecommunications industry, industrial facilities, and IT and data centers.
Transtector’s new AC panel surge protectors include models for all common AC services. These include 120 Vac single-phase, 120/240 Vac split-phase, 208/120 Vac three-phase wye, 277/480 Vac three-phase wye, 240 Vac three-phase delta and 480 Vac three-phase wye.
They are available with 100 kA, 200 kA or 300 kA surge capacity per phase.
The new outdoor devices are dual listed to meet two sets of Underwriter Laboratories’ safety and performance standards. They satisfy UL 1449 requirements as Type 2 SPDs and UL 1283 certification as EMI filters.
The new AC panel surge protectors are rugged enough for outdoor use. They are housed in watertight, corrosion-proof NEMA 4X enclosures that mount to a wall. Their operating temperature range is -40 degrees to +167 degrees Fahrenheit. “Our new line of outdoor AC panel SPDs with MOV technology do double duty in protecting AC power networks and local AC equipment from harmful transient surges as well as EMI interference,” said Transtector Product Line Manager Dan Rebeck.
