FLASHTRAB-SEC-HYBRID lightning arrester  

The first pluggable lightning arrester with integrated backup fuse

The FLASHTRAB-SEC-HYBRID lightning arresters from Phoenix Contact are the world's first pluggable type 1 lightning arresters with integrated arrester backup fuse without line follow current

The products are based on the Safe Energy Control Technology (SEC) from Phoenix Contact, which enables even high discharge currents to be kept safely under control. With the new push-pull mechanism, the protective device plugs are easy to remove and latch after being inserted in the base element in a vibration-resistant manner. The integrated backup fuse allows the lightning arrester to be installed easily and flexibly. In comparison to installations with separate backup fuses, the new devices save up to 60% space, reduce wiring costs and effort, and allow customers to freely choose the installation location. The type 1 lightning arrester is suitable for use in 230/400 V power supply systems without a back-up fuse.
