Product Highlights
  • Advanced Series Mode Surge Protection
  • SurgeX Inrush Current Elimination
  • Impedance Tolerant EMI/RFI Filtering

The SurgeX SX20 NE/RT Surge Eliminator & Power Conditioner has remote control capability for use in AC power distribution systems and can be interfaced with a sequential controller such as the SurgeX SEQ. The unit can be controlled with an applied voltage between 5 and 30VDC or a contact closure switch connected to the Phoenix connector terminal block. The connector can also be used to cascade multiple units or provide status to a central controller.

The SX20 NE/RT unit provides surge protection and power conditioning for audio, video, broadcast, and computer equipment. The unit is 20A load capable, is encased in a 12 x 12 x 4" NEMA-rated enclosure, and meets the code for use at service entrances & sub-panels and in-ceiling plenums.

The unit features both common and normal mode Impedance Tolerant EMI/RFI filtering as well as SurgeX ICE (Inrush Current Elimination) for a comprehensive power conditioning solution. The SurgeX Advanced Series Mode technology is completely non-sacrificial. The zero let-through technology protects the connected devices from all surges up to 6,000V (unlimited surge current) without producing harmful side effects such as ground contamination or common-mode disturbances.
