Morrisville, N.C.-based Raycap Inc., a manufacturer of transient voltage surge suppression modules and systems, has developed a 40mm version of the Strikesorb module. According to the company, the module can be integrated with original equipment manufacturer and switchgear products.

Raycap's Strikesorb modules are designed for use in applications that require protection from lightning and power surges, including wind turbines. The module's design enables direct installation on busbars on the load side of a circuit breaker, eliminating the need to install additional interconnection wires, circuit breakers or fuses. Housed in a 2.5-inch diameter, 3.72-inch height hermetic aluminum package, the 40mm Strikesorb module meets the requirements of the second edition of Underwriters Laboratories 1449 safety standard, the company says.

For more information about the 40mm Strikesorb module, contact Raycap Inc. at (919) 200-4508 or visit raycapinc.com/strikesorb.
