Description: Eaton PSPD 160 - Surge protector - AC 120/240 V - Split-Phase
Mfr Part #: PSPD160240S3K
Eaton's SPD series surge protective devices are the ULT 1449 3rd Edition certified surge protectors. Application of SPD series units throughout a facility will ensure that equipment is protected with the safest and most reliable surge protective devices available. Units are available in all common voltages and configurations, and also in a variety of surge current capacity ratings from 50 through 400 kA.
- Utilizes thermally protected metal oxide varistor (MOV) technology
- 50 through 400 kA surge current capacity ratings
- Factory-sealed assembly prevents arc flash and shock hazards
- Contains no replaceable parts or items that require periodic maintenance
- 200 kA short circuit current rating (SCCR)
- The increasing necessity for facility-wide surge protection
The ever-increasing use of microprocessors and other sensitive electronic equipment has increased the necessity for facility-wide surge protection. These sensitive electronic components are used within many pieces of equipment, including computers, programmable logic controllers and other commonly used electrical and electronic equipment. Surges can wreak havoc on equipment, causing catastrophic failures, process interruptions and premature aging leading to failure. The application of surge protective devices (SPDs) can mitigate problems with sensitive electronic equipment, keeping the equipment and the related processes up and running reliably without disruption or damage due to surge-related events.
- The SPD series makes surge suppression safer than ever
The SPD Series employs safety and design features that make surge protection safer than ever. Unlike many surge protective devices, the unit contains no user-serviceable parts or items that require periodic maintenance, such as replaceable surge modules, replaceable fuses, and surge counter memory backup batteries or wire lugs that require periodic retightening.
- Enhanced protection status indicators
The SPD series has elevated the features normally found within surge protective devices to the next level. Unlike many surge protectors that may have only single-colored indicators that simply indicate whether power is applied to the surge protective device, each unit includes dual-colored protection status light emitting diodes (LEDs) that indicate the true status of the protection. On three-phase units, if power is removed from a phase, the unit's protection status LEDs continues to indicate the status of the protection on that phase, not the status of the power applied to the phase. This feature ensures that the user is supplied with accurate information concerning the status of the protection the SPD is supplying on the phase, not the status of the power applied to the phase.
All units are factory-sealed. This preventive safety measure eliminates potential arc flash and shock hazards, as the user/installer has no chance of coming into contact with energized electrical components within the unit. In addition, the unit contains no user-replaceable or serviceable items, such as surge modules, fuses, and backup batteries for the surge counter's memory or wire lugs that require periodic retightening. Factory-sealing all units, coupled with the lack of replaceable items, further increases user safety, as no contact with live electrical parts is neither possible nor necessary.
