SSL power solutions manufacturer Thomas Research Products (TRP) introduced a new surge protector for 480V circuits.


The FSP3-480-20kA protects LED luminaires from surges up to 20,000 amps. Using new components, the FSP3-480-20kA is the same size as the company’s current 277V model.  An LED indicator on TRP’s new compact device shows that it is functioning to protect the luminaire. The unit also includes in-line fusing to shut down the luminaire when the capabilities of the surge protector have been exceeded. These features not only offer advanced protection for the luminaire, they make it easier for maintenance crews to diagnose issues, the manufacturer said.
