Transtector's Apex Imax - A New Level of Surge Protection Performance

Transtector Systems, superior protection technology provider for 40 years, introduces the newest invention in surge protection research and development - APEX Imax. The APEX Imax takes mission critical surge protection to an extraordinary level of performance in lightning, surge and fault current mitigation.

Rated at 65kA AIC fault current and tested to 160kA 8/20µs per IEC 61643-1, the APEX Imax achieves low voltage let-through and high current handling capability. It utilizes a combination of fast-acting, low clamp silicon avalanche suppressor diode (SASD) and robust metal oxide varistor (MOV) technologies to achieve ultimate protection against all transient surge anomalies. All APEX Imax units are listed to the latest revision of the UL 1449 2nd Edition standard. The APEX Imax is also Motorola R56 2005 Certified, designed to meet current industry requirements.

The APEX Imax is available in a NEMA 12 steel enclosure or NEMA 4X fiberglass composite
enclosure, SASD/MOV hybrid or MOV technology and various electrical configurations. As all of Transtector's reliable APEX series, the APEX Imax utilizes modular surge cards for user-friendly installation and maintenance.

The APEX Imax is backed by Transtector's standard 10 year manufacturer's warranty.
Further product specifications and part numbers are available on Transtector's web site at or by contacting Transtector directly.
