VARITECTOR. Reliable lightning and surge protection.

VARITECTOR. Reliable lightning and surge protection.

Industrial plants and building infrastructures are becoming increasingly complex. This makes them more sensitive to surge damage. In addition, digitalisation is increasing the number of connections and data streams that must not be interrupted. Reliable lightning and surge protection ensures system availability, protects against data loss, and increases added value.

Weidmüller has had standard-compliant lightning and surge protection products in its range for many years and develops customised surge protection solutions with maximum reliability. The proven surge protection devices of the VARITECTOR series are available for power systems, I&C components, and data interfaces.

Today, electrical installations and energy systems are elementary capital goods. Due to increasing automation and digitalisation, they are becoming more complex, more sensitive, and more susceptible to lightning and surge damage. In order to avoid costly repairs and unnecessary system failures, you need all-round reliable protection against dangerous surges of all kinds - with an efficient protection concept that extends from the energy feed to distribution and all the way to the consumer.

With our VARITECTOR series we offer you surge protection devices for power distribution systems, electronic devices, and the entire measurement, control, and regulation technology. In addition, there are special protection elements for signal circuits, data interfaces, or telephone systems. The portfolio is supplemented with powerful lightning and surge protection solutions for PV and wind energy systems, transport infrastructure, and the process industry.

From efficient plant control to the development of customer-oriented products and business models: today, data forms the basis for almost all processes in your company. This makes them invaluable. Surges, voltage spikes, and transients can disrupt or interrupt data flows in your company. This is especially true for sensitive low-voltage lines such as cable, telephone, and data lines.

VARITECTOR surge protection solutions effectively protect network components in low-voltage systems from frequently occurring transients, overvoltages, and voltage spikes. In this way, many errors in data transmission between controllers, computers, converters or sensors/actuators can be avoided just as effectively as data loss on storage media.

Measurement, control, and regulation systems (I&C) are at the heart of many buildings, energy generation, and industrial plants. Increasing automation makes them indispensable for many everyday processes. However, overvoltages can disrupt or damage the sensitive I&C components - with serious consequences for the entire operation.

The VARITECTOR SPC series was specially developed for I&C applications and can reliably prevent overvoltage-related failures – e.g. in wind turbines. It has a two-part pluggable design. The VARITECTOR SSC series in terminal block design is available as a variant with tension clamp or screw connection technology. Both product series comply with IEC/EN 61643-21 and -22 and are suitable for industrial and process automation as well as for applications in building automation.

Transport infrastructures and mobility concepts are undergoing rapid change. Digitalisation, automation, and growing demands for safety, performance, and sustainability are making systems increasingly intelligent and complex. However, this also makes them more susceptible to faults caused by lightning strikes and surges. This is particularly important in rail traffic.

To avoid failures due to overvoltage damage, you need reliable protection. The broad portfolio of VARITECTOR surge protection devices protects power, signal, and data transmission in all infrastructure systems - from power supply systems, signal boxes, and lock systems to digital control lines. The compact modules increase efficiency and reduce the effort required for maintenance, troubleshooting, and recertification. This alone pays for the investment after less than a year.
