and Dependable Protection Plus DC Power Conditioning for all your
Costly Marine Electronics and other sensitive Electrical & Electronic
In todays world
of sensitive and increasingly complex electronics that require ever more
complicated chips to run its functions and features, so consequently there
is also a need to pack even more transistors into those chips into an
already tiny space. So the only solution is to make those individual transistors
increasingly smaller and smaller to be able to fit them in. Unfortunately
as their size shrinks so will their ability to withstand power supply
over-voltage problems as smaller transistor elements become more fragile.
Hence an increasingly important topic has become the protection of electronic
components from DC Mains borne over-voltage surges and spikes that could
cause irreparable damage to the equipment.
When you wire-in
this OVP Module between your equipment and its DC Power Source your Sensitive
and Expensive Electronics will be Fully Protected against any momentary
or continuous Over-Voltage or Current Overload conditions, with Fully
Automatic Self-Restoring once the fault is corrected. And additionally
it also effectively protects against a wide range of other DC Mains Induced
Transient Voltage Surges, Spikes and Pulses.
PROTECTION THAT CAN BE JUSTIFIED FOR ANY ELECTRONIC EQUIPMENT
A single OVP
Module Can Easily Protect Multiple Electronic Devices as
it Can Handle Loads of 10Amp Continuous, and Up to 20Amp Max Peak Load.
