The BTU Research SURGE-PRO and ARC-TECH PRO UL 1449 3rd Edition products are used mainly for primary protection of single and three-phase networks at the main electrical panel or for direct protection at a specific load.They provide common mode protection (between the active conductors and protective wire) and are available in single-phase, three-phase, and three-phase+neutral versions.
The SURGE-PRO and ARC-TECH PRO high impulse discharge capabilities classify these SPD’s as reinforced Type 2, useful in case of high lightning density areas.IEC60364 standard requests Type 2 SPD at the entrance of installation if the keraunic level Nk > 25. The SPD is based on association of high energy varistors equipped with thermal disconnector and failure indicator, to comply with standards. Remote signaling or disconnection indication is also available for all models
