Raycap Inc., a manufacturer of advanced transient voltage surge suppression modules, has developed customized mounting configurations and integration kits for its Strikesorb surge protection devices, which can provide uninterrupted protection from successive surges up to 200kA without requiring maintenance.
The Strikesorb customizable mounting and integration kits feature multiple installation options, including direct installation onto busbars, which precludes the need to install additional fuses or interconnection wires. Strikesorb modules can also be installed in-line, reducing cable lengths and clamping voltages.
"For customers that need to upgrade their surge protection system in existing equipment, our customizable mounting configurations and integration kits allow engineers to design Strikesorb modules into almost any machine, such as variable speed drives and uninterruptible power supplies," says Jeff Gibbons, Raycap vice president of sales and marketing.
Designed to meet both the International Electrotechnical Commission 61643-1 standard for surge protection devices and the recently revised UL 1449 safety standard, Strikesorb modules provide high-surge handling capability, combined with ultra-low let-through voltage to the load, enabling it to absorb and dissipate the excess energy from lightning strikes and power surges in a completely safe manner.
