Helps lighting designers meet the latest luminaire testing standards around the world



Littelfuse - LSP05GI Series


CHICAGO, IL —Littelfuse,
the global leader in circuit protection, introduced a new series of
thermally protected surge protective devices that provide robust transient
overvoltage protection for outdoor and commercial LED lighting fixtures. The
LSP05GI Series LED Lighting Surge Protection Module is capable of providing
10kV/5kA surge protection and is certified to IEC/EN 61643-11. Its surge
handling capability enhances an LED lighting fixture’s surge immunity and
extends its operating lifetime.

Littelfuse thermally protected varistor technology guards against hazards
affecting a light or a facility due to ‘end-of-life’ or extreme surge
conditions. It is available in both parallel-connected and series-connected
formats. The series connection option disconnects the power to protect the
luminaire; the parallel connection disconnects itself at end-of-life and keeps
the luminaire powered.

Applications include roadway lighting, parking garage lighting, wash wall
lighting, traffic lighting, flood lighting, digital signage, tunnel lighting,
and street lighting.

“The LSP05GI Series LED Lighting Surge Protection Module is suitable for use
around the world because it helps luminaire manufacturers meet the latest
IEC/EN 60598-1 Standard,” said Todd Phillips, global marketing manager for LED
lighting at Littelfuse.

LSP05GI Series LED Lighting Surge Protection Modules offer these key benefits:
 • IEC
61643-11 and EN61643-11 certification of these modules allow luminaire
manufacturers to meet
    IEC/EN 60598-1, the international testing standard
for luminaires
 • Double-insulated
cable wire makes them suitable for use in luminaires designed for Class I and
Class II installations
 • A
built-in LED indicator alerts maintenance personnel to the need for replacement

The LSP05GI Series is available in bulk in minimum order quantities of 80
pieces. Sample requests can be placed through
