Peace of mind for Outdoor lighting systems

Philips Surge Protection Device 277V – Maximum protection for Outdoor LED investments

the entire light engine benefits from Xtreme protection against lighting strikes. An external surge protection device delivers a sufficiently low clamping voltage while ensuring all necessary tests can be passed. (indirect) lightning strikes. While it is theoretically possible to design a driver which survives a 10 kV hit. Exclusive Class I and Class II suitability The SPD offers protection without requiring a protective earth connection. The SPD clamps the voltage at the terminals of the luminaire. e. The product can be used in any new or existing lighting solution. it is vital to protect the light engine against surges on the mains line. the protective earth connection is used. In a Class II application the functional earth (housing) of the luminaire safeguards the light engine. the advantages of using the SPD are not limited only to LED systems. Even the most robust LED drivers offer a limited level of surge protection. The Xtreme standard The Surge Protection Device is specifically designed for use in outdoor luminaires. making it a unique1 solution in the market. For maximum-level of protection. Essential for LED systems installed in high-risk areas. connectors. protecting the complete system against multiple nominal surges of up to 10 kV / 5 kA. The device also eliminates the need for all luminaire internal components – wires. wire nuts. Applications such as road lighting and parking lots are especially susceptible. suitable for Class II systems. etc. regardless of technology. the driver would not comply with IEC regulations. To prevent light engine failures. When used in combination with Xitanium LED drivers. For Class I designs. Benefits • Maximize the lifetime value of outdoor lighting applications • No down-time due to calamities (storms. robust protection against moisture. the SPD can withstand a single hit of 10 kV / 10 kA.Philips Surge Protection Device 277V maximizes the lifetime value of outdoor lighting installations. The product delivers a longlasting solution with robust protection against a wide range of temperatures. the LED board is mounted on a heat sink which is connected to earth ground for thermal reasons. Why not make a LED driver with built-in surge protection? LED luminaire design makes it practically impossible to integrate high-level surge protection into the LED driver. In a typical LED system. lightning strikes. voltages must be clamped in the driver to a level which the LED-to-heat sink insulation can safely withstand. The clamping voltage necessary for LEDs to survive is too low to pass the hi-pot test. Maximum reliability management The Philips Surge Protection Device (SPD) 277V is the ideal solution to the challenge of using LEDs in Outdoor lighting. this driver would not prevent damage to the LEDs. etc.g. moisture and vibrations. not enough to defend against high surges. The new Surge Protection Device from Philips offers a reliable solution for protecting all outdoor power supplies from excessive surge voltages.) • Lower maintenance costs • Easy to apply in new or existing installations • Peace of mind on product performance Features • Resistant to peaks and surges of up to 10 kA / 10 kV • Suitable for Class I and Class II luminaires • Xtreme standard: Long lifetime. – to be designed to withstand 10 kV. Rapidly increasing acceptance of LED-based light sources for outdoor applications brings with it new challenges on system durability. In order to ensure the lifetime of the solution. vibration and temperature extremes • Can be used with all lighting technologies Applications • Highways • Rural roads • Parking lots • Area lighting 1 Patent pending .
