New Superior Surge Protector from Thomas Research Products

Thomas Research Products has announced an advanced new generation of their wildly popular Surge Protector product line. Thomas Research Products is a leading manufacturer of SSL power solutions and accessories.

The FSP3-277-20K model Surge Protector includes in-line fusing to shut down the luminaire if the capabilities of the surge protector have been exceeded. This not only protects the LED luminaire, it demonstrates that the unit needs to be replaced. It can be utilized for fixtures on electrical mains up to 277V. The compact device is rated to protect from surges up 20,000 amps. A 3D model is available on the TRP website for OEMs to use in designing luminaires.

TRP's Surge Protectors provide an extra level protection for LED luminaires from dangerous power transients in commercial applications. They are particularly useful in avoiding costly problems in 24/7 outdoor applications, including street lighting, big-box retail, warehouses, parking garages, and transportation facilities.
