High Energy Signal Line Protection
The Novaris SL2 range provides 20kA high energy surge protection for
balanced pair signaling circuits with line currents up to 500mA.
Following the primary GDT is a series coordinating impedance followed by a
high-speed clamping diode circuit providing a safe voltage protection level
for the connected equipment.
The protection circuitry is contained within a removable top module. This
pluggable design allows for easy removal and replacement. Reliable goldplated
connectors are used between top and base modules.
The SL2 range utilizes a base which can be locked to the DIN rail by a screw
that also provides an earth termination.
In the event of excessive surge current, a fuse will rupture, preventing a short
circuit to earth.
