The new M-LB-2000 system from Pepperl+Fuchs offers surge protection with nothing more than a loop disconnect function for easy maintenance and commissioning, making it ideal for use in applications that only require a minimal specification.
The M-LB-2000 can also be used as a superior alternative to terminal blocks with surge protection. The terminal blocks can be replaced by the 6.2 mm slim modules with no additional space required. The one-piece devices can be mounted on a standard DIN mounting rail, are approved for applications up to SIL 3, and are certified in accordance with ATEX and IECEx up to Zone 1. This makes the M-LB-2000 system the ideal complement to the M-LB-5000 surge protection system -- the two-part system that offers diagnostic functions.
The M-LB-5000 with condition monitoring function has patented diagnostics and uses a special algorithm to detect different overload situations that can cause the surge protection functionality to wear out. This improves the availability of the protective function, and therefore the system as a whole, while minimizing maintenance costs. The traffic-light display on each protection module greatly reduces testing work, as the fault can very easily be assigned to a specific signal circuit.
