Our Red/Line surge protection portfolio includes solutions for protecting systems up to 1,000 V a.c. / 1,500 V d.c. against surges caused by atmospheric discharge and switching operations.
Surge Protection for Power Supply Systems
Type 1 + Type 2 Combined Lightning Current and Surge Arresters
Spark-gap-based type 1 + type 2 combined arresters - DEHNventil, DEHNvenCI, DEHNshield, DEHNcombo - combine lightning equipotential bonding and protection of terminal equipment in a single arrester.
Coordinated Type 1 Lightning Current Arresters
Thanks to their high efficiency, coordinated spark-gap-based type 1 lightning current arresters are ideally suited for installation in the main distribution board of low-voltage consumer’s installations.
Type 1 Lightning Current Arresters
Type 1 lightning current arresters ensure lightning equipotential bonding in electrical installations and allow a compact configuration of low-voltage main distribution boards.
Accessory for Type 1 Arresters
Receiver modules for optical transmission for selective operating state indication / centralised fault indication of three coordinated DEHNbloc Maxi S / DEHNgap Maxi S lightning current arresters.
N-PE Lightning Current Arresters
Spark-gap-based type 1 N-PE lightning current arresters of type DEHNgap are installed in “3+1” or “1+1“ circuits of TT or TN systems between neutral conductor N and protective conductor PE.
Type 2 Surge Arresters
Type 2 DEHNguard S / M ...CI / SCI surge arresters are available in different types and voltages and are ideally suited for a.c., d.c. and PV applications.
Type 3 Surge Arresters
Type 3 arresters are typically used for protecting terminal equipment. Different types of enclosures allow easy installation close to terminal equipment.
DEHN provides specialized solutions to fulfil the regional different demands (e.g. diverse voltage levels, earthing conditions, standards) of many Power Supply Systems and markets worldwide.
Adequate accessories such as terminals, insulating enclosures or busbars make it easier to install and monitor DEHN surge protective devices in many applications.
Measuring and test equipment
Multi-functional power quality measuring devices, monitoring devices for the potential-free registration of the discharge processes of protective devices and testing the sparkover voltage of surge protective devices.
Isolating spark gaps
Isolating spark gaps for aboveground and underground installation are used to indirectly earth and connect functionally isolated parts of installations under lightning conditions.
DC decoupler for protection in case of transient, temporary and long-duration overvoltages caused by external voltages from various sources of interference (e.g. high-voltage systems, traction power supply systems, low-voltage systems, lightning interference).
The function of voltage-limiting devices in railway systems is to permanently connect parts in the overhead contact line and pantograph zone to the return circuit as soon as the sparkover voltage is exceeded.
