Ferraz Shawmut, a global leader in circuit protection, announces the introduction of its new Surge-Trap® Pluggable Surge Protective Device (SPD). The Surge-Trap Pluggable SPD meets requirements for both UL 1449 Third Edition and IEC 61643 standards. Like its modular predecessor, the pluggable SPD features TPMOV® technology and is a "no-fuse" SPD that doesn't require the use of additional overcurrent protection. It also offers IP-20 grade "finger-safe" protection and mounts easily on a DIN-rail to safeguard critical electrical system components from the harmful effects of transient overvoltages.

It is especially important within industries such solar power and wind power where overvoltage problems caused by internal and external power disturbances are common.
