Overvoltage protection

When choosing the correct device for overvoltage protection, it is important to consider the regulations VDE 110-1, IEC 61643-1, EN 61643-11 and VDE 0185 sect. 100. These deal with surge-voltage resistance, insulation, and lightning protection classes. CONTA-CLIP protection components meet VDE and IEC requirements, and sometimes go beyond them. For suppression of symmetrical and asymmetrical interference voltages originating from mains power grid CONTA-CLIP also offer arange of Interference-elimination link modules.
