ERICO is a world leader in grounding, bonding, surge and lightning protection in the railway industry, offering an extensive line of wayside surge protection. The EPD F-Series provides transient protection from surges induced or conducted onto low-voltage signal circuits for trackside signaling equipment. This series of surge-protection devices is ideal for microprocessor-based train-control and indication circuits, train inspection systems, communications systems, highway crossing controls and other operationally sensitive systems.
Wayside rail-industry electronic-equipment environments are prone to dangerous and damaging voltage surges and transients. The EPD F-Series proven hybrid technology diverts surge currents to minimize the likelihood of system damage, reducing system down time and repair costs. ERICO's design safeguards the devices against shorts, provides status indication at a glance and ensures uninterrupted signal operation when the device reaches end of life. Visual inspection is a key design feature. The device cover is color-coded and marked with the operating voltage and part number, which allows easy identification for proper application.
