The iconic BX range of 3-Phase Distribution Boards from Proteus Industrial is also available with factory fitted surge protection.
The Surge Protected 3-Phase Distribution Boards features a huge range of options for the installer. 443.4 – Protection against transient overvoltages shall be provided where the consequence caused by overvoltage…
- Results in serious injury to, or loss of, human life, or
- Public services or damage to cultural heritage, or
- Commercial or industry activity, or
- A large number of co-located individuals
The above means that the vast majority of three phase distribution boards will require surge protection to comply with the regulations.
With most installations, if surge protected is required an electrician would need to fit an MCB on an outgoing way and then wire to an SPD which is mounted in a separate enclosure which takes up more space and costs more money. The BX range of Surge Protected 3-Phase Distribution Boards has a surge protector fitted directly onto the busbar which removes the need for an extra MCB or enclosure.
Surge protection is available as type 1+2 (Lightning and Mains Surges) or type 2 (mains surges) and outgoing ways are available from 3 TP ways to 23 TP ways. The incoming isolator is also factory fitted and is available at 125 A, 200 A and 250 A
The BX range accepts MCBs from 2 A to 63 A and RCBOS from 6 A to 45 A and it’s perfectly suited for our compact RCBOs. It also features dual earth and neutral terminal bars, removable gland plates (top and bottom), a removable door and keyhole wall fixings for ease of installation.
Ensure your customers’ expectations are met with our range of distribution boards with factory fitted surge protection.
