Introducing the New Surge-Trap Type 1 X-Series SPDs

frz_surgeMersen, formerly Ferraz Shawmut, introduces its new X series line of UL 1449 third edition approved surge protection devices (SPDs), the Surge-Trap Type 1 X-Series, which provide overvoltage protection for all locations in the facility with the smallest footprints available. The new X-Series SPDs features industry leading TPMOV® technology inside.

The new series includes the Surge-Trap XR series, which provides overvoltage protection for distribution branch panels, control panels and equipment. The advanced performance Surge-Trap XP series provides overvoltage protection for larger distribution panels and branch panels. And, the Surge-Trap XT series offers advanced technology surge protection and provides high end protection for critical locations and service entrance gear.

“There are many SPDs on the market that no longer meet the UL1449 standard. To know if a SPD product is in compliance, look for the UL holographic label on the device. If it has a UL holographic label, the SPD is in compliance. If it doesn’t have one, it does not meet the new UL 1449 Third Edition standard,” explains Janelle Woodfall, Mersen Product Manager.

The Surge-Trap Type 1 X-Series SPDs are rated for NEMA 4X enclosures and suited for system voltages from 120V to 600V. They have a 20kA (In) nominal discharge current and high 200kA SCCR ratings.  Agency approvals include UL 1449 third edition, IEC 61643, CE, ANSI/IEEE C62.41 (XR-series), RoHS compliant, and UL 96A lightening protection master label.
