Bussmann Surge Protector Devices from Eaton's Bussmann Business

Today I want to show you about Bussmann's Surge Protective Devices, for those who have been in the business a long time, what used to be called TVSS (transient voltage surge suppression). But today we're going to focus on Surge Protective Devices. Today there's so many more electronic devices that you are going to find, not only in industrial applications, but increasingly in commercial applications as well. All these devices need to be protected from surge devices, not only overcurrent but also overvoltage protection. A couple of options that we have here for panel options we have a DIN Rail mounted product. What you'll find is that they're color-coded. The black labeled product is the UL listed product that has a short circuit current rating of 200,000 amps. We also have a low voltage telecom product, that's the blue labeled product. It has a single pole and two-pole option that you see here. In terms of ease of installation, you'll notice that they're DIN rail mountable, so it's very easy to mount these things.

Once they are mounted, you'll see they're color-coded so that when you do need to change them out, they have replacement modules that just simply pinch and pull out when you need to replace them. And they are keyed such that a blue cannot be placed into a black base or vice versa.

On the data signal side of our business, I like to use the term 'a surge event is an equal opportunity destroyer;' it doesn't care if it comes on a power line or a low voltage line, it's going to take the path of least resistance. We have also provided a line of protection products for data signal products. We have a 4-pole universal product that's great for instrumentation applications. We also have both a DIN Rail mount and an inline mount for a coax cable for cameras and video applications. Lastly, we have an Ethernet protective device that's great for all Ethernet applications both on the telecommunications side as well as the industrial side.

Eaton's Bussmann business has a wide variety of products that are available for surge protective devices. These are just a portion of it. All of them are very easy to use, easy to replace, and very much touch-safe.
