nVent ERICO Protection Device, F-Series
nVent ERICO is a world leader in grounding, bonding, surge and lightning protection in the railway industry, offering an extensive line of wayside surge protection. The EPD F-Series provides transient protection from surges induced or conducted onto low-voltage signal circuits for trackside signaling equipment. This series of surge-protection devices is ideal for microprocessor-based train-control and indication circuits, train inspection systems, communications systems, highway crossing controls and other operationally sensitive systems.
Wayside rail-industry electronic-equipment environments are prone to dangerous and damaging voltage surges and transients. The EPD F-Series proven hybrid technology diverts surge currents to minimize the likelihood of system damage, reducing system down time and repair costs. nVent ERICO's design safeguards the devices against shorts, provides status indication at a glance and ensures uninterrupted signal operation when the device reaches end of life. Visual inspection is a key design feature. The device cover is color-coded and marked with the operating voltage and part number, which allows easy identification for proper application.
nVent ERICO is committed to providing engineered high quality and technologically advanced solutions to the unique applications of the railway industry and has served the worldwide market for over 100 years. Railway systems around the world depend on nVent ERICO solutions to keep their systems running safely and efficiently.
