Building Surge Protection - Type 1, 2 Class I, II

Type 1 / Class I

The Type 1 SPD is recommended in the specific case of service-sector and industrial buildings, protected by a lightning protection system or a meshed cage.

It protects electrical installations against direct lightning strokes. It can discharge the back-current from lightning spreading from the earth conductor to the network conductors.

Type 1 SPD is characterized by a 10/350 µs current wave.

Building Surge Protection - Type 2, 3 Class II, III

Type 2 / Class II

 

The Type 2 SPD is the main protection system for all low voltage electrical installations. Installed in each electrical switchboard, it prevents the spread of over-voltages in the electrical installations and protects the loads.

Type 2 SPD is characterized by an 8/20 µs current wave.

Building Surge Protection - Type 2, 3 Class II, III

Building Surge Protection - Type 3 - Class III

Type 3 / Class III

 

These SPDs have a low discharge capacity. They must therefore mandatorily be installed as a supplement to Type 2 SPD and in the vicinity of sensitive loads.

Type 3 SPD is characterized by a combination of voltage waves (1.2/50μs) & current waves (8/20μs).

Renewable Energy - Surge Solutions

The renewable energy industry is made up from many different kinds of sources, from primarily using sun for solar (photovoltaic) energy, wind (wind turbines) and water (hydro electrical plants). The damage that lightning strikes can cause to all the equipment used within these sectors, is very costly. This cost can be prevented by the implementation of our surge protection devices (SPDs).

Satellite & RF - Surge Protection

We  have surge protection for Satellite cables and RF antenna coax cables. These are commonly used for inputs from the satellite and TV aerial, from outside coming in to the building, to the television equipment. These coaxial cables are also sometimes used to connect a VCR, DVD player, satellite box or even games consoles to the television set.
