Surge protection reinvented
Lightning and surge protection from the Safe Energy Control family is more effective and lasts longer than ever before.
The revolutionary spark gap that safely prevents any line follow current is at the core of the product family. It ensures a long service life and high-performance lightning and surge protection. This protects your system, including fuses and protective devices. A separate arrester backup fuse is therefore no longer needed in all common applications.
- Uninterrupted protection for your system with technologically leading spark gaps and products with safe disconnect device
- Maximum protection against dynamic overvoltages for your sensitive devices with direct coordination between the spark gap and the varistor
- Efficient in control cabinet manufacturing with a uniform compact design of the surge protective devices, without the need for backup fuses
- Quickly and easily installed with the world’s first type 3 surge protective device with Push-in connection technology
Type 1 lightning current arrester with integrated backup fuse
FLASHTRAB SEC HYBRID is the first pluggable type 1 protective device without line follow current featuring an integrated surge-proof arrester backup fuse. Thanks to the newly developed push-pull mechanism, the protective plug can be easily pulled out. The integrated latching holds it securely in the base element during discharge.
Installation is easy and flexible, thanks to the integrated backup fuse. This allows you to easily adapt to installation locations while saving space and reducing wiring effort. The FLASHTRAB SEC HYBRID is available for use in 230/400 V or 400/690 V power supply systems.
Type 1 lightning current arrester for 400/690 V
The FLASHTRAB SEC PLUS 440 is specifically designed for higher nominal voltages. Its compact design and the universal pluggability of the protective devices enable space-saving and flexible installation.
The technical performance of the FLASHTRAB SEC PLUS 440 is unique in this compact format. The type 1 protective device is used in 400/690 V TN and 400 V IT power supply systems. Lightning currents up to 35 kA are handled safely.
Thanks to the high continuous voltage of 440 V and the high shock and vibration resistance, the FLASHTRAB SEC PLUS 440 is ideal for use in industrial systems and wind turbine generators.
Type 1 lightning current arrester for 230/400 V
The FLASHTRAB SEC PLUS 350 is ideal for use in the unmetered area of the main supply and for industrial applications.
The powerful FLASHTRAB SEC PLUS 350 spark gaps without line follow current protect your systems every step of the way and significantly increase the service life of the electrical installation. High voltage fluctuations and extreme lightning current loads up to 25 kA are no problem for the FLASHTRAB SEC PLUS 350. Even lightning currents up to 50 kA can be handled with the FLASHTRAB SEC PLUS 264.
Like all other type 1 protective devices in the SEC family, the FLASHTRAB SEC PLUS is also tested and certified as a type 2 protective device.
Type 1+2 special combined lightning current and surge arresters
The FLASHTRAB SEC T1+T2 is a genuine combination of a lightning current arrester and surge protective device. It provides the ideal protection for environments with frequent switching operations.
Lightning currents are safely handled by the powerful spark gaps. This guarantees a low residual voltage, while dynamic overvoltages are reliably limited by the varistor-based type 2 protective devices. This ensures optimum coordination between the spark gap and the varistor.
Minimize installation and maintenance effort considerably with the unique combined protective device, which has remained the only one of its kind for the past decade. Now also available with spark gap without line follow current and newly designed type 2 protective device.
Type 2 surge protection
The compact type 2 surge protective device provides maximum performance and a high short-circuit current rating in just 12 mm per channel.
The VALVETRAB SEC can be easily installed in any small distribution panel, without a separate arrester backup fuse, up to a nominal current of 315 A for the main fuse.
The high discharge capacity and the low overall width mean that the VALVETRAB SEC provides reliable surge protection for every power supply.
Type 2 surge protective devices are also available for DC current sources with linear operating characteristics.
Type 3 device protection for AC/DC applications
The PLUGTRAB SEC is the powerful surge protection solution for end devices up to 230 V nominal voltage.
The newly developed internal disconnect device and the integrated arrester backup fuses provide increased safety in the event of electrical and thermal overload, regardless of the backup fuse installed.
For this reason, the PLUGTRAB SEC is the reliable surge protection solution for AC and DC end devices.
