A surge suppressor kit is now available for use with Moore Industries’ field-installed instruments enclosed in BH and SB housings. The kit is approved for use in Explosion Proof applications in the United States/Canada (sCSAus) and Australia/New Zealand (ANZEx).

The surge suppressor exceeds Severity Level 4 of IEC 61000-4-4, providing 3kA (8/20μsec) of surge protection stopping failures due to lightning, spikes and overvoltage surges while minimizing other electrical noise. This suppressor allows HART signals to pass through and therefore can end up used to suppress or protect both analog and HART digital/analog signal lines.

This surge suppressor works with Moore Industries’ temperature and signal transmitters, signal isolators and signal converters and is easy to install and wire.

This is the latest addition to the family of surge suppressor solutions available from Moore Industries. Our other suppressors include:
• DIN-Plug Surge Suppressor: Compatible with any Moore Industries DIN unit with a two-terminal header. This suppressor provides lightning-fast response time to stop failures due to lightning, spikes, and overvoltage surges while minimizing other electrical noise.
• Data Line Rail-Mount Surge Suppressor: Designed to protect digital signals on your RS-422 and RS-485 communications lines. It is compatible with any top-hat or “G” type DIN-rail mounting style.
• AC Wire-In Surge Suppressor: Provides sub-nanosecond protection for 220VAC process power lines and meets Severity Level 4 of IEC 61000-4-4 and 61000-4-5.
