Your systems remain operational for longer with our surge protection.
Phoenix Contact is a pioneer in the development of surge protective devices. Decades of experience together with intensive fundamental research in cooperation with universities and technical colleges lay the foundations for the technical expertise required during the development of surge protective devices.
Our in-house, accredited pulse and high-current laboratory allows us to develop our products safely and in line with standards from the initial idea right through to series production.
We rely on excellent expert knowledge throughout the entire production process.
Spark gaps are the powerful components inside surge protective devices. They are able to safely discharge very high currents. Development ranged from open, free-blowing to encapsulated spark gaps. But there was still one problem. The high line follow current.
In 2015, Phoenix Contact brought the first spark gap onto the market that works so perfectly that no more line follow currents occur. This new spark gap with Safe Energy Control technology is extremely powerful and, due to the fact that there is no line follow current, is also the most durable spark gap there is.
The unique spark gap technology has enabled a compact and powerful protective device to be developed.
