Phoenix Contact Valvetrab-Safe Energy Control Type 2 surge protection device

Friday, 10 February, 2017 | Supplied by: Phoenix Contact Pty Ltd


The Valvetrab-Safe Energy Control (SEC) Type 2 surge protection device is a high-performing arrester.

From just 12 mm wide per module, the device is highly compact and reduces the need for installation space to a minimum. It can be housed in any miniature distribution system.

The device protects against lightning strikes and surges to deliver maximum reliability for installations in need of continuous power. It features SEC technology, while the high discharge capacity and small width of the device ensure protection is available in the most compact of space.

The pluggable nature of the arrester allows for quick installation and maintenance. The base element and plug can be rotated by 180° for easy alignment. This also enables a connection with shorter cable lengths with markings facing upright that are clearly legible.

Built using only quality components, the product is both vibration- and shock-proof. It is monitored by an easy-to-read status indicator and a remote signalling contact. The device has been independently tested to the latest IEC 61643-11 standards and has GL shipping approval.

The product is part of a portfolio of protection devices that ensure high availability of power. The range also includes protection devices for data networks, radiocommunications and pipelines. The SEC Type 1, 2 and 3 arresters all offer the latest design and technology benefits.

The product is rated for voltages up to 690 V and independently certified for discharge currents up to 50 kA limp or 100 kA Imax. It delivers durability and performance due to the combination of safe energy control features and Spark Gap technology which prevents any line follow current. This reduces stress on the entire installation while helping to ensure the long-term durability of the MOV based Type 2 protection. Sensitive downstream components are reliably protected due to the device’s low-voltage protection level.

The product is suitable for use in infrastructure, transport, wind energy, telecommunications and the building sector.
