||North Andover, MA — L-com, Inc. has added a new series of single-stage AC/DC control line lightning and surge protectors. The new products protect 8 individual single-ended AC or DC control lines using grounding lugs to provide tie points for earth ground. The surge protectors all have removable screw terminal strips for easy installation. Necessary for many wired connectivity lines, the devices protect sensitive electrical equipment on either end of a cable from transient voltages, or spikes, which may be caused by lightning strikes and other factors. AC and DC control lines are used in a range of applications and are commonly found on measurement and control equipment, computers, motor controllers and industrial automation equipment.
The new protectors from L-com complement the existing 3-stage protectors by offering a more economical option. L-com will carry weather resistant models for 12, 24, 48VAC and 5VDC lines. The AC protectors use Metal Oxide Varistors (MOV), while the DC protectors have uni-polar Transient Voltage Suppression (TVS) Diodes rated at 1500 Watts.
