BSPD Type 1 and Type 2 SPDs
High capacity surge protective devices for switchboards
The BSPD Surge Protective Devices (SPDs) help protect electrical and electronic equipment from overvoltage surges. What’s more, they enable compliance with 2014 NEC® 700.8 that requires a listed SPD to be installed in or on all emergency system switchboards and panelboards.
The RoHS compliant BSPD uses thermally protected Bussmann series SurgePOD™ technology to safely shunt overvoltages to ground while its thermal disconnect capability eliminates the need for additional fusing.
Find the surge protective device you need based upon your overvoltage protection needs - covers power and data signal SPDs.
