Lightning protection system

Oct. 1, 1996
The combination of Flashtrab, a lightning current arrester, and Valvetrab MS, a pluggable distribution panel, provides a tight voltage-control system to protect electrical and electronic equipment. Both modules safely pass lightning currents to earth ground. Flashtrab extinguishes a 60-kA, 10 x 350-microsecond lightning waveform test to a 4000V level. Valvetrab MS, installed with Flashtrab, further reduces the residual 8 x 20-microsecond waveform to 15 kA.
