DSP600 Series - Type 2 Class 2 

DSP600N and L Series - Type 2 Class 2

Ideal for industrial, commercial and domestic applications, the Distribution Surge Protector 600 Series provides an economic means of preventing damage to electrical distribution systems from mainsborne transient voltages. These transients may occur as the result of nearby lightning strikes or surges derived from the switching of inductive or capacitive loads.

The DSP600 Series should be installed at the point of cable entry to a building and at the distribution point for each floor of a multi-storey building containing sensitive electrical/electronic equipment. They are normally used as part of a totally integrated surge protection system and as such should be considered as the first line of defence. Local distribution panels and equipment connected ‘downstream’ should also be protected in order to achieve a systematic and co-ordinated approach to surge protection.

Mains Internal Distribution & Spur Surge Protection - Type 3 Class 3


Mains Internal Distribution & Spur Surge Protection - Type 3 Class 3

Spur Protector (SPLB1/13) - Type 3 Class 3

Ideal for industrial or commercial applications. The ‘Spur Protector’ SPLB1/13 provides an economic means of preventing damage to sensitive electronic equipment on individual ring mains, from the dangers of transients, which can occur as the result of a nearby lightning strike or surges derived from the switching of inductive or capacitive loads.It can either be wired to the equipment as an inline protector or can be hardwired into wall mounted conduits. The Spur Protector is best used as part of a totally integrated surge protection system and should be considered as the ‘final link in the chain’ when planning a systematic and coordinated approach to surge protection and it is therefore essential that main service and distribution panel protection is provided as a ‘first line’ of defence.
