DITEK Introduces Service Entrance Surge Protectors for Facility-Wide Protection

Professional Grade Industrial Surge Protection

DITEK Corporation   ♦   Largo, FL

We are excited to introduce our new D200M and D300M family of Industrial Surge Protectors, designed to provide protection to AC power systems in the most demanding environments. Every model in the family provides a high surge current rating to ensure a long service life, with additional service assurance features to support proactive operational management. Units are available in 5 different voltage configurations with up to 10 protection modes to meet project specification needs. These new models are all listed in MasterSpec® Construction Specifications, a product of the American Institute of Architects, for easy inclusion in new projects.

In the past, it has been difficult for facility management to be certain that surge protection devices were working properly. This is partly because most daily surge events are small and go unnoticed, and partly because surge protection devices sacrifice themselves to divert dangerous electrical surges away from sensitive equipment, thus eventually requiring them to be replaced. The problem arises when the surge protection devices have done their job correctly, but building managers don’t realize that they need to be replaced. In that situation, sensitive equipment is no longer protected and is at risk of costly and disruptive damage.

The new DITEK models include service assurance features that help alert building management of their current status so that managers can take action to maintain continued protection. One of these features is an innovative visual end-of-life indicator that displays a green LED when the device has at least 2/3 of its life remaining, a yellow LED when the device life is between 1/3 and 2/3, and a red LED when less than 1/3 of its life remains. Other service assurance features include a surge counter with reset button, an audible alarm with silence button, and dry contacts for remote monitoring. With these powerful service features available, building managers can proactively manage surge protection for their facility and maintain an awareness of the current protection status.

“Every day, commercial facilities of all kinds, from offices and retail stores to medical buildings are all depending more and more on electronic systems to support their operations,” said Michael Molinari, General Sales Manager, DITEK. “Facility managers are looking for ways to better support these needs with professional-grade protection. Our new industrial surge protectors provide the electrical protection they need, backed by a limited 10-year warranty, while giving them the tools to manage and assure they are protected.”

This new family of surge protectors includes two series. The D200M Series has a 200,000 Amps/phase surge current rating. The D300M Series has a 300,000 Amps/phase surge current rating. Each Series has five models that cover a range of standard service voltages from 120/240VAC up to 480VAC, and are housed in rugged NEMA 4 enclosures.

We are currently shipping an aggressively priced line of Uninterruptible Power Supplies (UPS) with a new compact form factor through the professional distribution channel.  These units round out a comprehensive power protection product lineup that also includes Ethernet and Power over Ethernet (PoE) Network Protection and indoor/outdoor surge protection devices.

"Our goal has always been to help our customers protect their essential electronic systems from the damaging effects of power surges and spikes", said Michael Molinari, General Manager, DITEK.  "Our UPS offering goes a big step further to not only protect the power supply, but to ensure power uptime that supports those vital systems through brief power outages.  This is a natural extension of our lineup and reinforces our commitment to our customers served by professional integrators".

DTK-UPS600 (600VA / 360W) and DTK-UPS800 (800VA / 480W) extend the lineup of UPS solutions to economically protect and power smaller electronic systems, including home and office workstations, POS and lottery terminals, fuel pumps, access control system, and more.

Both models provide power protection against surges and spikes in a compact, economical package, and make use if a built-in boost and buck AVR for voltage stabilization.  This UPS series will provide clean and stable power to connected equipment while its embedded microprocessor contorl guarantees exceptional reliability.  They include protection for an Ethernet connection for maximum flexibility, and 6 power outlets for connected equipment.

Battery run time at 25% of rated load is about 20 minutes (19 minutes for DTK-UPS600), and both models feature a fast recovery time of only 4 hours to reach 90% capacity.  Both models also include overload, discharge and overcharge protections, and issue a loud audible warning when power or function is compromised.

DITEK Introduces DIN-Rail Surge Protectors for Commercial and Industrial Equipment

DTK DR Series All

DITEK Corporation   ♦   Largo, FL

We are thrilled to announce the launch of the DTK-DR Series of DIN-rail surge protectors designed to provide point-of-use electrical surge protection for machine control panels and similar applications in commercial and industrial environments. Every model in the family provides a 75,000 amp surge current rating to ensure powerful protection and a long service life, with additional service assurance features to support proactive operational management. All units feature a compact, modular design for easy integration within machine control panels, and fast replacement of the protection module when needed.

The new DTK-DR models include service assurance features that help alert maintenance and management staff of their current status and to trigger action to maintain continued protection. Each unit includes both a dry contact remote end-of-life indicator to report current status, and a visual LED end-of-life indicator for easy status checks and confirmation of remote alerts. This combination of remote and local status indication enables proactive maintenance and the highest level of machine and system protection.  

“Industrial equipment forms the foundation of many business operations,” said Jason Klein, National Sales Manager, DITEK. “Best practices in surge protection have always included protectors both at the facility service entry and at the power connection of each sensitive electronic device. Our new DIN-rail surge protectors make it much easier to incorporate appropriate protection right at each equipment controller.”

The DR Series currently includes 18 models with different voltage configurations – from 120VAC up to 690VAC to meet project needs. Single, split, three-phase wye, and three-phase delta configurations are available to support a wide range of equipment power supplies. All models in the family are DIN-rail mountable, UL-Recognized and backed by a 5-year limited warranty.
