Equipped in this way, the VPU Series provides a long-lasting, safe and forward-looking lightning and surge protection solution for your plant. See for yourself.


Best overview

The large, centred status window provides extremely highly visible information on the status of the protective function.

Faster to assemble

The optimised mounting rail clip enables easy and quick assembly and removal, without the need for tools.

Flexible positioning in the control cabinet

According to IEC 62305, the line path from the surge protection module to the PE connection may only be 50 cm. The fact that you can rotate the base through 180° means that you have the highest degree of flexibility during installation, without impacting on overall visibility.

Rapid status messaging

The remote signaling contact with Push In connection can be quickly connected and provides reliable information regarding the status of the protective function.

Firmly locked in position

The arrester can be heard and felt locking into the base. This enables it to comply with the exacting requirements on vibration resistance set by wind turbine plant manufacturers.
