BY5-160 SPD Surge Arrester

BY5-160 AC Surge Protector is designed according to IEC lightning protection requirements, combined with the application environment of AC power supply systems. It uses high-energy MOV chips with nanosecond response speed. It provides a reliable voltage protection level, super strong surge current discharge capability, and safe overload characteristics, offering reliable functions for lightning protection, surge protection, power grid purification, and safety.

Application Scope
It is mainly used for lightning protection of various distribution boxes and other electrical equipment in AC power supply systems.

Performance Features
· Designed for voltage limiting, complying with Type 1 test requirements.
· Multiple combination modes to achieve differential mode and common mode protection functions.
· High-energy MOV with low residual voltage and high voltage protection level.
· The disconnector has an arc-quenching device and strong overload capability.
· High continuous working voltage and large current-carrying capacity.
· Fast response speed without continued flow.
· Rail-mounted installation.
· Enhanced nylon casing with IP20 protection level.
· Small and compact size, easy to install and use.
