Type 1 TVSS from ABB low voltage controls is designed to dissipate energy caused by an overvoltage comparable to that of a direct lightning strike. It has successfully passed testing to the standard with the 10/350 wave (Class I test). Type 1 units are recommended for locations having a high exposure to lightning, wind mills and cell towers. These products are installed at the entrance of the installation (such as main distribution board).

Red Lion Controllers

The PCU Controller accepts either 0 to 10 VDC or a 0 to 20 mA DC input signal, precisely scales the process signal according to programmable scaling points, and provides an accurate output control signal (time proportional, linear, or valve position) to maintain a process at the desired control point. A comprehensive set of easy to use program instructions allows the controller to solve various applications.

Weidmuller VARITECTOR SPC Pluggable Surge Protection for Measurement & Control Distributor

Weidmuller's VARITECTOR SPC pluggable surge protection is remarkable for its combination of extremely high protective functionality and compact dimensions. It is suited for use in measurement and control circuits. The size is made possible by the selection of INSTA dimensions, with a width of 17.8 mm (1TE). Two versions are available:

  • VSPC: a surge protector with no monitoring function
  • VSPC R: a surge protector with monitoring function

The base components are plugged in to form a direct earthing contact via the mounting rail. Thus you save time during the connection. The VARITECTOR SPC series is optimally designed for compact installation locations in process automation, industrial automation or building automation.

If you are looking for Weidmuller VARITECTOR, please call us on (844) 331-9375 or email us at info@clrwtr.com we will do our best to help you find the Weidmueller Surge Protection that you are looking for at the most competitive prices possible. If you are searching for Weidmuller Surge Protection Modules technical information (data-sheets) please use the datasheets or product selection guide page links.

Weidmuller VARITECTOR SSC 6AN Surge Protection Module for C & I Circuits Including Disconnect/Measurement Function Distributors

The VARITECTOR SSC combined surge protection, a direct PE contact function, separation of signal paths and operational status indication in one module. It is suitable for C & I applications. The disconnect lever in the terminal guarantees that the measurement/control circuit can be quickly and precisely switched off to test the signal path. Using a test plug (PS 2.3 mm), the measuring instrument can be easily inserted into the integrated test socket on Torx/Slot headed screws.

The shield can be attached onto the additional lower level of the VSSC 6AN which then leads directly to the PE potential on the mounting rail. Permanent shielding can be implemented easily using the EMC set. Weidmuller's SNAPMARK device marker can be snapped onto a terminal so that the equipment identification can be easily read regardless of the installation position.

Weidmuller VARITECTOR 4AN SSC CL & CL FG Modules & Components Distributor

Weidmuller offers a comprehensive product line for the measurement and control industry. This includes products with a two-part pluggable design or with a terminal design and with Either Screw or Tension Clamp Connection Type. These products work with both binary and analogue signals. Weidmuller also offers other models with integrated components such as gas discharge tubes or varistors.

VARITECTOR represents Weidmuller's versatile and variable surge protection solution. In the VARITECTOR SPC and SSC product lines - just as with the MCZ OVP - the electrical and mechanical characteristics are optimally combined. Size and convenient handling are the key factors here.

Weidmuller VARITECTOR SPC EX Surge Protection Modules Distributors

Intrinsically safe circuits to limit energy are used in explosion risk zones. In these circuits, the intrinsically safe signal converters with their galvanic isolation and Exi approved surge arresters provide excellent protection for sensitive control electronics. Lightning strikes and overvoltages in the field on measurement and control cables can lead to explosions.

Surge voltages on the field side of the measurement and control lines can damage the facility. The VARITECTOR SPC EX can discharge surge voltages in hazardous area applications (zone 0, 1 and 2). The pluggable arresters conform the high requirements of the intrinsic safety Exi to the current standards. They also comply with the IEC 61643-21:2008 surge protection product standard and are certified for protection classes D1, C2 and C3. It provides lightning and surge protection at the maximum level ensuring unbiased measurement and control signals and is employable in process technical systems designed to the current norms and standards.

Weidmuller VARITECTOR SSC EX Lightning & Surge Protection Distributor

When used in intrinsically safe circuits within EX zones 2 to 0, the VARITECTOR SSC can reliably protect measurement and control signals from lightning and surge voltages. Lightning and surge voltages, coupled from the field side to machines and facilities, can cause signal interference or even destroy connected devices. They could even lead to an explosion with high risk Ex zone applications.

The new VARITECTOR SSC EX product line, with a width of 6 mm, offers protection against these risks. These products comply with the new product standards of IEC 61643-21:2008. They fulfil the "over-stress mode" described there. They are also in compliance with the most current ATEX standards in EN 60079.
