Edco SS65 Suppressor


The Edco SS65 Multi-Stage Hybrid Suppressor for Over-Voltage Transients is designed for the water and wastewater industry. This multi-stage hybrid suppressor addresses over-voltage transients with gas tube and silicon avalanche technology. In addition, sneak and fault currents are mitigated with PTC devices, which consist of solid-state resettable fuses. The units are encapsulated in stainless steel pipe nipples making them suitable for use in severe environments. The SS65 model protects a signal pair plus the cable shield (drain wire).
