MODEL 7200 Lightning Protection Device
The Model 7200-00 Lightning Protection Device reduces the risk of system failure for equipment frequently exposed to lightning storms. Electrical surges due to lightning are common sources of sensor and data acquisition equipment failures. Although protection against a direct lightning strike can not be guaranteed, the Model 7200-00 minimizes the amount of energy that will get through to the equipment. It diverts the strike energy to the Earth through a deliberate and controlled path so that no damage will be incurred.
