Review of the latest Lightning Protection news
New Enhanced Compact Surge Protection up to 32A from Furse
- Published: Wednesday, 21 January 2015 13:39
The new ESP D/DS Series now offers industry leading low let through voltage combined with the mains test Type 1, 2 & 3 (to BS EN 61643). Designed for use on low current single phase systems (up to 10A or 32A) to protect against transient overvoltages on the mains supply, as well as offering increased exposure level covering lightning protection zones (LPZ) 0 - 3.
It also features a three way visual indication of protector status and advanced pre-failure warning, as well as remote indication facilities to a BMS via a Volt-Free contact, so you need never be unprotected.
Features & benefits:
Combined type 1, 2 & 3 tested protector (to BS EN 61643)
For use on low current (up to 10A or 32A) single phase systems, to protect against transient overvoltages on the mains supply.
Very low let through voltages
Protecting essential equipment by restricting transient overvoltages to a safe level.
Industry leading, enhanced protection to BS EN 62305
Minimising the risk of dangerous sparking (leading to flash over and electrical shock hazards) as well as equipment damage compared to standard protection.
Compact DIN housing
Mounts to standard 35mm top hat DIN utilising DIN foot with locking feature.
Three way indication facility (DS Version)
A flashing warning of potentially fatal neutral to earth supply faults as well as a Volt-Free contact to show pre failure warnings and potential phase loss. (Due to incorrect earthing, wiring errors or unbalanced conditions.)
Remote indication facility
Protectors linked to building management systems (BMS) for clear remote failure warning via an active change over Volt-Free contact.
Repeat protection in lightning intense environments
Protectors offer repeated protection against transient overvoltages, with a 5 year warranty
