Inventronics has announced the release of a new surge protection device family designed to be used in conjunction with any of their LED driver families. Inventronics LED drivers offer industry-leading protection already but recognize some customers desire external protection for applications in hostile grid environments. These applications can include high bay, high mast, arena, roadway, industrial zones and open parking lot lighting.
The PU-20KS10KHT and PS-20KS10KHT is designed according to UL 1449 Type 5 and IEEE C62.41.2 specifications. They have a maximum discharge current (lmax) of 20kA, 8/20 μs and a normal discharge current (ln) of 10kA, 8/20 μs. The PU-20KS10KHT operates from 90-305Vac while the PS-20KS10KHT operates from 249-528Vac.
Their robust surge protection enables them to significantly improve the reliability and extend the lifetime of connected LED fixtures. They use a Gas Discharge Tube (GDT) to disconnect the MOVs and prevent catastrophic failure and risk of fire. They are both IP20 rated with UL certification.
The PU-20KS10KHT and PS-20KS10KHT are available for mass production.
