February 17, 2004 - Measuring ľ x 2 x 3.5 in., Series I2R Storm Suppressors will protect at 330 and 500 V on 120 and 240 Vac systems, respectively. DIN rail mount units can carry surge current ratings in excess of 5 kA and can be configured in normal and common mode for single, split, and 3-phase systems. Featuring isolated contacts in European-style terminal plug for remote indication in event of failure or fault, Storm suppressors meet IEC Class II and IEEE C2 specifications.

Transtector I2R Series Gets Bigger with Much Smaller "Storm" Product Family

Transtector Systems, a Smiths Interconnect company, recently announced the fourth expansion of the I2R Series family of suppressors with the addition of the new silicon “Storm” model, designed for confined space and DIN mount applications. The I2R Series family of products now includes the original compact, flexible, plug-in module approach with over 200 configurations in Silicon or MOV, the compact MOV lines (LA, SA, LSA), and the ICP DIN mount for individual equipment protection.

"The initial success of our robust and modular, yet compact footprint DIN-mount suppressor had many customers asking us just how much smaller we could go" said Jim Walker, Director of Engineering Transtector Systems. "The difficult task is properly assembling silicon diodes in a manner that maintains performance. The I2R Storm addresses the size and functionality issues with an “ultra-compact” unit that delivers silicon suppression’s superior performance characteristics in a 35mm DIN mount package, yet measures less than three quarters of an inch (1.8cm) wide. The unit is also only slightly over 2 inches (6cm) tall and 3.5 inches (9cm) deep.

The I2R Storm devices will protect at 330 and 500V on 120 and 240 VAC systems respectively. They carry surge current ratings in excess of 5kA and can be configured in normal and common mode for single, split and three phase systems. Featuring isolated contacts in European-style terminal plug for remote indication in the event of failure or fault, Storm suppressors are designed to meet IEC Class II and IEEE C2 specifications.
