Effortless Surge Protection device Prevents From
Over Voltage of LED Lighting
LED lights are used for street lighting. They are becoming increasingly popular due to their light
intensity, their energy efficiency and their robustness. Since the LED lights consumes 70% less
energy than the conventional lighting but still generating the same luminous power as legacy
lighting sources. They make a valuable contribution in the reduction of energy costs.
Nevertheless this attractive technology has an important weakness that its sensitivity to
transient voltages created by lightning or by power switch operations on AC network. They are
directly exposed to all weather conditions and therefore they are at risk in two ways: - From
lightning and from surge voltages. As a result, LED modules undergo faster aging and thus
reduce service life. LED driver and control interfaces can also suffer failure. So, the replacement
of defective components increases the overall cost.
In order to protect outdoor LED lighting from failure, the LED surge protection device is
required for safe operation and used to protect the luminary. Lightning strikes directly on the
street lights and create high energy pulses that cannot be conducted away from the luminaries
with reasonable effort. The LED surge protectors are based on highly advanced technology to
ensure the best protection shield and improving the expectancy life of LED lighting. It is a
combination of varistors and gas discharge tubes providing a protection level (Up) of 1 KV. It is a
cost effective solution with an extra guarantee to the end user in terms of reliability and
durability. The maximum continuous operating voltage (Uc) of LED surge protector is 275 V and
it’s nominal voltage (Un) is 230 V. This solution is reliable for all network configurations and all
voltages (including IT systems). The maximum discharge surge current (Imax) is 10 KA (8/20µs)
and the nominal discharge surge current (In) is 5 KA (8/20µs).
