Surge Protection For LED Lighting


Surge protection for led lighting

Visual indication system allow pilots to ensure that the aircraft is on the proper glide slope during approach for a landing. These indicators are located on the airfield at the side of the runway facing the approaching aircraft. Depending on the pattern of lights seen by the pilot, they let the pilot know if they are coming in too steep, too shallow, or just right. The main components that make up the system are four indicator assemblies and a power and control assembly.  

MCG Surge Protection devices are employed to prevent damage to the system’s electronics during a surge event. The SPD devices (four designs in all) designed for these state-of-the-art systems fully protect the equipment from surges on both the AC power lines and the data/signal lines interconnecting the components.  

The protectors meet the stringent requirements of the FAA surge test parameters. Protector size constraints were also addressed due to the confined area allocated to mount the protectors.  The surge protective devices (SPD) applied here are AC Power Line Protectors (120/240VAC SPD) and two types of Data Line Protectors (MCG DLP-10HH and DLP-30HH). This system plus surge protection has been tested to confirm that it can withstand high-energy surge currents repeatedly while continuing to function properly. Critical grounding methods and product placement were also key to the success of the program, allowing the protectors to effectively divert any surges away from the system’s electronics.

This MCG package answers the need for critical LED array protection including highway lighting, skyscraper lighting, sophisticated signage, etc.
