Direct current equipment level
surge protectors are designed to protect up to 15A of continuous DC load
MCG-12A-MCG-130A installs at or within equipment such as
DC servo mechanisms, fire alarm monitoring systems, security system
controls, telecom and datacom systems, etc. to provide compact, heavy duty
The units clamp excess
transient over voltages in less than 5 nanoseconds and automatically reset
-- ready for the next transient. A green LED verifies that protection is
present. The DC protector's low-profile enclosure (4.95" X 2.85" X 1.25")
uses industrial-grade high-impact plastic and installs quickly via solder
less screw terminals.
Typical suppression at 50A using an
8/20 waveform ranges from 34V to 200V. Clamp voltages at 1mA peak is 18V
150V. Surge energy absorption (in joules, 10/1000us) exceeds 455j. MCOV:
125% rated voltage.
is designed to protect DC powered equipment, such as inverters and charge
controllers used in photovoltaic systems,
from damage caused by lightning. It utilizes high energy 40kA metal oxide
varistors and specialized fuses optimized to conduct transient current
without opening. The unit is dual redundant and has status indicators on the
front panel. Its small size makes it suitable for use in tight cabinets.
Rated at 160kA, the unit protects all modes. The DCP-90 is available in
various operating voltages so it can be customized to your application.
MCG’s new Direct Current
protects sensitive automotive electronics from damaging transients that
occur in a vehicle’s electrical system. Designed with high performance and
safety standards in mind, the AEP protector will withstand repetitive
transients that occur on a daily basis, in addition to the alternator’s load
dump transient. The unit features both over current and thermal fusing. If
there is more than one piece of critical equipment on the same circuit,
multiple protectors may be employed where required.
The AEP-12/AEP-24 is easily installed on the DC power bus in front of the
electronics to be protected. As a result of its parallel connection, the
power path integrity to the load is not affected. The unit can be used in
any vehicle where critical and/or costly equipment exists, including OEM
applications such as conversion (i.e. limousines), recreational, and
