    With exclusive features, Acti 9 iPRD DIN rail type-2 Surge Arrester Devices are definitely geared to absolute safety and improved continuity of service.
    • Class-2 insulation : continuous safety for operators and unqualified personnel.
    • VISI-TRIP : detects faulty type-2 Surge Protector Devices (SPDs) outgoers quickly and reduces intervention time.
    • Maximum discharge current: 8 to 65 kA.
    • Surge Arrester Device or disconnector combinations certified for short-circuit current withstand, Isc, up to 50 kA (IEC 61643-11, version 2011).
    • Maximum continuous operating voltage, Uc = 340 VAC, 460 VAC.
    • Suitable for any earthing system: TT, TN-S, TN-C and IT. 
    • Fixed or pluggable Surge Arrester Device.
    • Multiple-pole or single-pole products for assembly.

    Benefits

    Improved continuity of service and safety due to:
    • Class 2 insulation: continuous safety for operators and unqualified personnel,
    • VisiTrip™: quickly detects the defects of protection against the surges and reduces intervention time,
    • Certified coordination with disconnection circuit-breakers,
    • The strength and robustness of the connections,
    • Remote monitoring of protection device state (additional  feature).

    Applications

    These Type 2 Surge Protection Devices can be used also for the protection of residential installations:
    • In every new house without a lightning rod (primary protection) it is now mandatory to install in the electrical switchboard a Type 2 Surge Protection Device to reach the IEC 61643-11: 2011 standard
    • In a building with a height greater than 10 meters, with several dwellings, if a Type 1 surge arrester is installed in the main electrical switchboard, a Type 2 surge arrester must also be installed at the head of each divisional switchboards in order to distribute the constraints
    • This complementarity of the protections is mandatory to meet the IEC 61643-11: 2011 standard.
