Lowell Manufacturing Company, a U.S. manufacturer of professional AV products, has expanded its COMPAC line of “zero failure” technology 15A and 20A standalone surge suppression products with a 30A compact hardwired surge protection device, model no. ACSP-3001-HW.
With the highest current capacity available in a device of its size, the 30A surge protection device also offers a voltage protection rating (VPR) of 400 or less as defined by UL 1449, third edition, making it suitable for protection of multiple pieces of the most sensitive electronic equipment on a single circuit.
The 30A compact unit also shares the versatile installation capabilities of the entire COMPAC line, shipping with two mounting brackets designed to be hidden or exposed, which allow the device to be located almost anywhere, such as under a counter, on a wall behind a flat-panel TV, in cabinetry, or in a rack. Optional mounting ears (model no. ACC-1ME) are available to mount the unit in standard EIA 19-inch rackmount installations. The device, which weighs 5 lbs, features a low-profile steel casing that measures just 1.75 in. (H) x 6 in. (D) x 9 in. (W).
Model no. ACSP-3001-HW features Lowell’s exclusive TCR technology, which defeats surges up to 72,000 amps with zero failures. It suppresses the line to neutral with zero ground leakage. LEDs provide visual system status.
The new 30A surge suppressor includes a 6-ft. non-metallic flexible conduit that can be field-cut to shorter lengths, and is connected with a flexible coupling for ease of installation. Included is a blank plate with knockout that allows the 30A receptacle to be converted to hardwired output in the field to meet code requirements, where applicable.
Lowell COMPAC model no. ACSP-3001-HW is ETL listed and complies with ANSI C62.41. It features a 10-year warranty.
