Device Zaps Direct Lightning Strikes

Combining high energy current handling with low voltage protection capabilities, the Flashtrab Plus Control is said to be a lightning arrestor with superior longevity and robustness. The device is designed to shunt 50 kA of surge current as tested to the long duration IEC 61312 10x350 ┬Ás lightning test waveform. The surge current is dissipated while holding the residual voltage below 900V. The lightning arrestor is available in a space-saving DIN rail mount package ideal for wireless communication equipment. It is also available in a NEMA 4 enclosure for indoor and outdoor service entrance protection. For more information, contact PHOENIX CONTACT INC., Harrisburg, PA. (800) 322-3225.
