  • Protection concept

    Surge protective devices from Phoenix Contact can be used to create an effective protective circuit around devices and systems.

  • Components and protective circuits

    When surge voltages occur, the affected devices and cables must be short-circuited with the equipotential bonding within a very short time.

You probably have a great deal of questions – ranging from basic queries as to how surge voltages even occur, to technical details about grid systems or individual components of a surge protection concept, right through to the device itself.

The answers to the following questions can be found here

  • How do surge voltages occur and what effect do they have?
  • How do you create an effective surge protection concept?
  • What is the technology behind the protection concept and products?
  • What do you need to bear in mind?
