SPD for LED lighting systems


For protecting LED lighting systems, FRTgroup offers surge protection devices of various configurations from the world leader – Citel (France).

LED street lighting is now widely used for its efficiency, its energy cost savings and its life expectancy. Nevertheless this attractive technology has an important weakness: its sensitivity to transient voltages created by lightning or by power switch operations on AC network. Due to its scattered and over-exposed location, LED lighting system will face induced surges which will create failure of its power supply, damage LED components or loss of the lighting efficiency. For these reasons, the use of relevant surge protectors located upstream the LED lighting systems is highly recommended. CITEL offers a full range of surge protectors designed to be installed at different points on the lighting network such as streetlights, the base of poles and street cabinets. Some versions are equipped with additional protection for data line option (RS485,DALI, 0-10V) to provide a complete solution for LED systems with control lines. CITEL offers solutions adapted to every type of outdoor LED lighting systems : urban, architectural, tunnels etc.
