VALVETRAB-SEC surge protective device  

Extremely narrow, durable, and powerful: the new type-2 protective device with SEC technology

The new VALVETRAB-SEC from Phoenix Contact, the world's narrowest type-2 surge protective device, offers impressive features such as durability and high performance, thanks to the use of Safe Energy Control (SEC) technology.

The powerful disconnect device and the high short-circuit current rating of up to 50 kA offer protection for each small distribution panel at just 12 mm per channel. The type-2 protective device provides safe protection against severe voltage fluctuations and high stresses caused by lightning currents. Downstream components experience less stress, thanks to the low voltage protection level. An additional advantage is that main system fuse can be used for up to 315 A without additional backup fuses. This saves space and money in the control cabinet. The basic element and the plug can be rotated by 180° to one another. This enables a connection with shorter cable lengths with the label remaining legible. All type-2 protective device product versions are pluggable and can be tested with the test device for the CHECKMASTER 2 surge protective devices.
