Raycap, the developer of the unique patented Strikesorb technology, announced an upgrade to its flagship Strikesorb 30-surge suppression device (SPD). While Strikesorb technology has been in existence for 20+ years and protected wind operations for more than 15 of these, these recent enhancements upgrade the Strikesorb 30 to a Class I surge protective device, in addition to its present Class II rating, per IEC 61643-11.
The enhanced version provides systems designer’s additional flexibility in installing the Strikesorb 30, with its compact footprint, in locations experiencing both direct and indirect lightning currents. The modules also have UL Type 2 Component Assembly certification and improved VPR levels.
Updating the Strikesorb 30 enhances its competitiveness in energy markets and ensures Raycap products remain the market leader with their unique patented technology – a technology capable of handling multiple lightning surges without failure or performance degradation while offering continuous protection of the wind turbine or other equipment.
Raycap continually practices R&D product improvements in support of its Strikesorb technology, and the Strikesorb 30 improvements are just the most recent.
“This new improvement upgrades the Strikesorb 30 to a Class I product per IEC 61643-11 and offers more robust protection in a small form factor,” said Zafiris Politis, Vice President of Research & Development for Raycap. “Our Strikesorb products have the ability to be installed in locations with very high short circuit current conditions without failure or degradation, all the while continuously and safely protecting mission-critical electrical equipment from damage caused by lightning surges.”
The Strikesorb 30 is just one of many in the Strikesorb family which has been proven to provide uninterrupted protection for a wide variety of voltages and applications including wind energy, solar energy, telecommunications and other mission-critical markets.
