Rail Data & Signal Surge Protection
Rail Data & Signal Surge Protection
nVent ERICO is an industry leader in railway signaling surge protection. Momentary voltage surges can be induced onto track circuits, potentially costing millions in damage. For decades railroads have relied on nVent ERIOC to protect railway data signal equipment with our RTB (Rail Transient Barrier) products an established line of surge protection devices recognized for performance and reliability.
Building on this legacy, WAPP and nVent ERICO are pleased to introduce RTBN, the next generation in railway data and signal protection. With its high surge rating, RTBN delivers the same outstanding performance that industry has come to expect. RTBN also brings advanced new features to meet the needs of modern railways.
Electronic Track Signal Protector
The nVent ERICO Electronic Track Signal Protector series provides transient protection from surges induced or conducted onto low-voltage signal circuits for trackside signaling equipment. The series of surge-protection devices is ideal for protecting DC-responsive track relays, train-detection systems, microprocessor-based train-control and indication circuits, train inspection systems, communications systems, highway crossing controls and other operationally sensitive systems. nVent ERICO Electronic Track Signal Protector devices help ensure that surges do not pose a safety threat in the event of component failure. Indicators on the device help safeguard the device against shorts and provide status indication at a glance. The device cover is marked with the operating voltage and part number, which allows easy identification as to proper application.
nVent ERICO Protection Device, F-Series
nVent ERICO is a world leader in grounding, bonding, surge and lightning protection in the railway industry, offering an extensive line of wayside surge protection. The EPD F-Series provides transient protection from surges induced or conducted onto low-voltage signal circuits for trackside signaling equipment. This series of surge-protection devices is ideal for microprocessor-based train-control and indication circuits, train inspection systems, communications systems, highway crossing controls and other operationally sensitive systems. Wayside rail-industry electronic-equipment environments are prone to dangerous and damaging voltage surges and transients. The EPD F-Series proven hybrid technology diverts surge currents to minimize the likelihood of system damage, reducing system down time and repair costs. nVent ERICO’s design safeguards the devices against shorts, provides status indication at a glance and ensures uninterrupted signal operation when the device reaches end of life. Visual inspection is a key design feature. The device cover is color-coded and marked with the operating voltage and part number, which allows easy identification for proper application. nVent ERICO is committed to providing engineered high quality and technologically advanced solutions to the unique applications of the railway industry and has served the worldwide market for over 100 years. Railway systems around the world depend on nVent ERICO solutions to keep their systems running safely and efficiently.
