Surge protection - Industrial building

Surge protective devices protect electric / electronic systems and devices from damage caused by excessively high voltages. This dangerous interference energy is gradually broken down to a level corresponding to the rated impulse voltage.

Please note that the relevant arresters have to be energy-coordinated to ensure interaction of the individual protection stages.

A - Power supply

Transformer substation

DEHNvenCI: For protecting the power supply at the main incoming supply. Spark-gap-based combined arrester with integrated lightning current carrying backup fuse and low voltage protection level UP ≤ 1.5 kV (including backup fuse). Extinction of mains follow currents up to 100 kArms.

Low-voltage main distribution board

DEHNventil: For protecting the power supply of low-voltage consumer's installations. Multipole type 1 + type 2 spark-gap-based combined arrester according to EN 61643-11.

Sub-distribution board

DEHNguard ACI: For protecting the power supply in sub-distribution boards.
Type 2 surge arrester with integrated ACI Switch/spark gap combination, safe dimensioning. Connection cross-section of just 6mm² Cu is always enough.

Protection of terminal devices

DEHNflex: The type 3 DEHNflex arrester is mounted directly at the terminal device. It is ideal for installation in cable ducts and installation boxes. Other places of installation are possible.

Protection of terminal devices

B - Data and telecommunication technology

LSA technology

DEHNrapid LSA: The DEHNrapid series for LSA technology (LSA-PLUS/LSA+) is a flexibly combinable system of lightning current and surge arresters for telecommunication systems and measuring and control applications.

KNX / EIB systems

BUStector: This type 2 surge arrester with bus terminal design is particularly adapted to the immunity of KNX / EIB systems. It can be easily inserted into the slot of KNX components.

Ethernet cabling

DEHNpatch: Universal arrester for Industrial Ethernet, Power over Ethernet (IEEE 802.3-compatible up to PoE++ / 4PPoE) and similar applications in structured cabling systems according to class E up to 250 MHz. Protection of all pairs thanks to powerful discharge tube and adapted filter matrix for each pair. Fully shielded adapter with sockets for DIN rail mounting.

C - Photovoltaic system

Inverter

DC side of the inverter - if the separation distance is kept

DEHNcube: The DEHNcube type 2 arrester offers comprehensive protection for a PV system – in a single enclosure. It is mounted directly upstream of the inverter. In case of a cable length of more than 10 metres between the PV system and the inverter, another arrester is required in the roof area.

Alternative 1

DEHNguard M YPV 1200: DC side of the inverter - if the separation distance is kept

Alternative 2

DEHNcombo: DC side of the inverter - if the separation distance is not kept

 

D - Electric shutters
