      Benefits

      Improved continuity of service and safety of your equipments thanks to:
      • Class 2 insulation: continuous safety for operators and unqualified personnel
      • VISI-TRIP™: quickly detects the defects of protection against the surges and reduces intervention time
      • Certified back-up protection coordination with disconnecting circuit-breakers
      • The robustness of the connections
      • Remote monitoring of protection device state (option)

      Applications

      Acti 9 iPF K & iPRD Type 2 Surge Protection Devices protect the electrical installations in all industrial and tertiary buildings against induced or conducted surges caused by indirect lightning strikes.

      These Type 2 Surge Protection Devices can be used also for the protection of residential installations:
      • In every new house without a lightning rod (primary protection) it is now mandatory to install in the electrical switchboard a Type 2 Surge Protection Device to reach the IEC 61643-11: 2011 standard
      • In a building with a height greater than 10 meters, with several dwellings, if a Type 1 surge arrester is installed in the main electrical switchboard, a Type 2 surge arrester must also be installed at the head of each divisional switchboards in order to distribute the constraints
      • This complementarity of the protections is mandatory to meet the IEC 61643-11:2011 standard.
