Surge Protection Made Simple™ by Cooper Bussmann

Untitled - 29.jpgCooper Bussmann is taking an innovative approach to the launch of its new range of surge protection devices. As part of its Surge Protection Made Simple™ offering, the company has introduced a number of measures designed to make choosing, installing and maintaining SPDs a far simpler process.

Intended to combat damaging surges and over-voltages, the new SPD line-up features colour coding to match its designated application, has a modular plug-in and DIN-rail mounted design with voltage rejection feature, and incorporates the Cooper Bussmann easyID™ visual indication for status monitoring. Where green is shown in the status window the device is performing to its optimum, while a red window indicates that the unit needs replacing. Remote contact signalling is an option across the whole range.

The company has initially introduced two ranges for the protection of photovoltaic (PV) and industrial (IEC) applications with subsequent launches for the wind power, telecom and UL markets.

In particular, the SPD range for PV applications is designed with built-in, fast-acting short-circuit interruption (SCI) technology for 600Vdc, 1000Vdc and 1200Vdc systems that ensures that harmful surges and over-voltages are safely dealt with and shunted to ground. This high performance capability, which has been patented, removes the need for additional fuses or overcurrent protection so saving space in the associated panel or combiner box.

“We are very excited to introduce our new high performance surge protection offering, which wholly complements our over-current protection capabilities,” announced Ivo Jurek, President, Cooper Bussmann.

The launch of the new SPD range will be supported with a full suite of literature including product profile, product data and installation sheets. More information is also available from www.cooperbussmann.com/surge.
