Reducing the impact

of transient damage

Surge Trap® SPD offers a patented no-fuse Type 2 solution and a superior thermal overload technology that delivers higher safety ratings and protection.
Power-related problems cost U.S. companies more than $80 billion a year. The impact is farreaching and affects just about every aspect of business. It drives up maintenance and production costs, causes production delays, lost sales, late deliveries, as well as increased spoilage and scrap. Ferraz Shawmut’s Surge Trap® Surge Protective Devices (SPD) help minimize powerrelated problems by protecting sensitive electrical equipment from harmful transients. Most transients originate from within a facility and nearly 80% of today’s overvoltage problems are caused by equipment and power disturbances within the plant. These inner-facility transients are caused by light load panels switching on and off, motors starting and stopping, and close conductor proximity, just to name a few. Less than 20% of transient problems originate outside of the facility due to lightning strikes, utility grid switching, switching of capacitor banks, and electrical accidents. Transients cause three general types of damage to sensitive electrical equipment, for example: > Disruptive – A voltage transient enters an electronic component which interprets the valid logic command, resulting in system lock-up, malfunctions, faulty output or corrupted files. > Dissipative – A repetitive, short duration energy surge resulting in long-term degradation. > Destructive – Associated with high level energy surges, resulting in immediate equipment failure (most obvious) When exploring your surge suppression options, keep in mind that not all SPDs are created equally. Most SPDs are designed to function in tandem with fuses. If you need a space-saving option or are looking for ways to reduce costs, then consider an integrated system. Ferraz Shawmut’s Surge Trap® is the only SPD featuring our patented TPMOV® technology inside, eliminating the need for additional overcurrent protection. To evaluate the safety performance of an SPD, look for compliance with IEC 61643-1, UL 1449 Third Edition, RoHS, and ANSI/IEEE C62.41.

of the Surge Trap® SPD
The Surge Trap® SPD is a fail-safeType 2 surge protective device that is easy to install or retrofit needing no fuse in series for disconnecting. Direct connection is available with the DIN-rail mount option. The Surge Trap® SPD has a small foot print, visual indicator and an IP20 finger-safe design. Optional remote indicators are available when status to critical control circuits are needed.

Overvoltage Protection Terms to Know
8/20 current impulse current: impulse with a virtual front time1 of 8μs and a time to half-value2 of 20μs. Note 1 The front time is defined according to IEC 60060-1 to be 1.25 x (t90 – t10). Note 2 The time to half-value is defined as the time between the virtual origin and the 50% point on the tail. Clamp Voltage: The peak MOV terminal Voltage measured with an applied 8/20 μs pulse of rated impulse current Metal Oxide Varistor (MOV): An electronic component that is commonly used to divert excessive current to the ground and/or neutral lines. *Maximum Continuous Operating Voltage (MCOV): The maximum rms voltage that may be continuously applied to the SPD for each connected mode. *Terms are referenced in the table on the reverse side.

world standards
Nominal Discharge Current (In): Peak value of the current through the SPD, selected by the manufacturer from a list of predetermined values, having a short-circuit current wave shape of 8/20 μs where the SPD remains functional after 15 surges. *Voltage Protection Rating (Up): A rating per UL 1449 Third Edition, signifying the rounded up average measured limiting voltage of an SPD when the SPD is subjected to the surge produced by a 6 kV, 3kA 8/20 μs combination waveform generator. *Short Circuit Current Rating (SCCR): The suitability of an SPD for use on an AC power circuit that is capable of delivering not more than a declared rms symmetrical current at a declared voltage during a short circuit condition. Surge Protective Device (SPD): A device that contains at least one nonlinear component and is listed to limit surge voltages and divert surge current.
