The type 2 surge protective device from the Blocktrab series from Phoenix Contact has been designed to protect all lighting systems, particularly LED applications.
In street, tunnel or commercial lighting, LEDs are everywhere. To safeguard the infrastructure, it is essential to ensure error-free functioning of illumination. However, the surge currents and overvoltages generated in the grid can significantly exceed the dielectric strength of LED light columns, for example. Therefore the lights may fail for reasons other than their position, which exposes them to lightning strikes. Effective surge protection can help to avoid these risks.
Owing to its compact design, the BLT-T2 surge protective device can be retrofitted in existing systems. The protective device can be used in diverse LED applications and offers a variety of connection and installation methods.
