Littelfuse - Surge Protection Optimized for LED

CHICAGO, IL— Littelfuse, Inc., the global leader in
circuit protection, displayed its cutting-edge circuit protection technologies
optimized for the full LED lighting system during the IES Street and Area
Lighting Conference (SALC) held earlier this month in Hollywood, California.

Littelfuse presented a number of luminaire
driver components, including AC fuses, varistors, TVS diodes, DC fuses, PTCs,
and PLED protectors. In addition to this diverse portfolio of circuit
protection solutions that address a variety of LED applications from indoor and
outdoor lighting to devices for LED bulb design, Littelfuse representatives
highlighted two unique innovations:

  • Released last week, the LSP10GIHP
    Series Surge Protection Device (SPD) Module
    combines extremely
    low surge let-through with a built-in LED indicator. The low surge let-through
    provides unmatched protection for the luminaire extending the life of
    luminaires such as LED street lights and other outdoor lights, while the LED
    indicator alerts maintenance personnel to the need for replacement of the
    SPD.

  • The award-winning LSP05
    and LSP10 Modules
    are designed specifically to provide robust
    transient overvoltage protection for outdoor and commercial LED lighting
    fixtures. A built-in thermal disconnect function provides additional protection
    from catastrophic failures and fire hazards, even under the extreme
    circumstances of varistor end of life or sustained overvoltage conditions. The
    booth exhibit also included a disassembled streetlight to demonstrate where and
    how the LSP05 and LSP10 modules can be installed.

Todd Phillips, global
marketing manager of the Electronics Business Unit at Littelfuse, noted, “This
year’s show drew nearly 700 representatives from municipalities, utilities,
government agencies, universities and other organizations interested in
learning more about large-scale outdoor LED lighting projects. Many came to our
booth to learn how Littelfuse circuit protection components can help them
maximize their initial investments by extending the life of their
installations.”
