DEHNguard® SE CI 440 FM for use in systems with higher rated voltages

The lightning and surge protection specialist DEHN + SÖHNE offers DEHNguard® SE CI WE 440 FM and DEHNguard® SE CI 440 FM surge protective devices especially for use in systems with higher rated voltages 400/690V. The requisite backup fuse is also integrated. This makes effective protection against overvoltages possible for a whole range of applications, for example, wind power and photovoltaic plants, traction and aerial railway systems and even cranes in industrial ports. Compared to conventional solutions with external backup fuses, the DEHN arresters with an integrated backup fuse save up to 60% space. The new DEHNguard® SE CI minimises the risk of failure caused by overvoltages. These surge protective devices are not only designed to meet high electrical demands, but also to withstand heavy mechanical loads. Beside being suitable for high voltages, these DEHN arresters are also resistant to vibration and shock.
