Phoenix Contact FLASHTRAB compact Surge Protection

Phoenix Contact’s FLASHTRAB compact is a pluggable surge protection combination in acc. with EN type 1 and 2, consisting of lightning current arresters that are all encapsulated and pluggable, as well as pluggable surge arresters. The direct parallel wiring of both arrester types is based on the proven AEC (Active Energy Control) principle. All the arresters work autonomously and in this way attain maximum performance.

One big advantage is the pluggability of the arresters. In the case of an unexpected overload as a result of extreme lightning strikes, for example, the plug affected can be replaced at little expense. Coded slots make the handling of FLASHTRAB compact child’s play and it is impossible to mix up the arresters or plug them in incorrectly.
