The Next Generation Surge Protection Technology
Rayvoss transient voltage surge suppression (TVSS) systems have been designed and manufactured to provide the ultimate in
protection for telecommunication, IT, automatic control infrastructure and sensitive electronic equipment in general. Strikesorb®
the high surge capacity protection element found inside Rayvoss® systems, repetitively absorbs and dissipates the excess energy
of lightning strikes and power surges, without performance deterioration or signs of aging. Contrary to the conventional
protection devices using parallel varistors or silicon diodes, Rayvoss® and Strikesorb® can sustain multiple successive lightning hits.
Rayvoss® and Strikesorb® offer this while providing complete and uninterrupted protection without requiring maintenance - even
under harsh environmental or poor power quality conditions. Rayvoss®and Strikesorb®have been successfully installed in
thousands of sites worldwide, protecting telecommunication, defense, industrial and governmental infrastructure from the
hazardous effects of surges.
Strikesorb is the protection module used in Rayvoss TVSS systems. It is offered in two types according to its
surge current capacity:
- Strikesorb 80, rated at 200kA
- Strikesorb 40, rated at 140kA
The Strikesorb 80 is used in locations that are exposed to high intensity surges or in locations with critical
equipment. The Strikesorb 40 is ideal for the protection of equipment in urban and rural locations inside
street cabinets or integrated solutions.
Special models and customized solutions to meet specific customer requirements are available. Surge protection
modules have been successfully integrated inside power panels, variable speed drives, telecom street cabinets etc.
