Pluggable SPD for rack-mounted enclosures


Increased density and optimal spacing in rack-mounted enclosures

Middletown, Pa. – Phoenix Contact’s new VAL-MS BE/O is the first pluggable surge protective device (SPD) for use in a rack-mounted enclosure. The 2U- (3.5-inch) high base element maximizes surge protection density, allowing up to 24 VAL-MS SPDs in a common 2U-high, 19-inch wide rack enclosure.

The VAL-MS BE/O has an orthogonal base element designed for both AC and DC applications. The base element accepts all of Phoenix Contact’s VAL-MS series of pluggable SPDs, including the VAL-MS 60 and VAL-MS-T1/T2 48.
