DITEK Introduces Unique New Voltage Monitoring Solution for HVAC Systems

HVAC KoolGuard

DITEK Corporation   ♦   Largo, FL

We are thrilled to announce the addition of the DTK-KG2 to our Kool Guard line of voltage monitoring devices. The new DTK-KG2 is specifically designed to protect HVAC equipment from harmful under-voltage and over-voltage events that can damage sensitive electronics and mechanical components within the system.

The DTK-KG2 is designed to be wired in series with a 120/240VAC or 120/208VAC split-base circuit up to 40 amps. A NEMA 4X polycarbonate enclosure enables the unit to function at high efficiency in harsh outdoor environments. The DTK-KG2 is designed to accept either half-inch or three-quarter-inch conduit and is intended to be placed directly between the safety disconnect or circuit-breaker and the equipment it is protecting. Also incorporating DITEK’s state-of-the-art surge protection design, the DTK-KG2 shields equipment from damaging transient voltage surges and spikes.

“A unique feature of this new product is that it does not require any calibration during installation,” said Mike Molinari, Director of Marketing for DITEK. “Whether it is being installed on a residence with a 120/240VAC service or a commercial building using a 120/208VAC service, it will automatically detect the input voltage and configuration.” The device monitors both phases individually with a line-to-ground voltage limit of 104VAC on the undervoltage and an overvoltage limit of 130VAC.

The DTK-KG2 is beneficial for applications that feature an inverter-driven AC system where too high of an input voltage could cause equipment damage. The DTK-KG2 keeps the power from reaching any devices unless it is within the specified range, and will cover power anomalies at a residence or business while also handling power surge events.

The key product features and applications for the DTK-KG2 include:

  • Protection for under-voltage and over-voltage events
  • Safely disconnects power to the system for 3 minutes allowing input voltage to return to normal range
  • Diagnostic red and green LEDs indicate exactly what voltage condition is present
  • Surge protection components included to divert harmful transient voltages away from the equipment
  • Ductless AC Systems (mini splits)
  • Inverter-type Compressor Systems
  • Split Systems
  • UL 60947-1 Listed
  • UL 60947-5-1 Listed
  • 10 Year Limited Warranty

The convenient, modular plug-in design simplifies installation of surge protection modules and allows for easy replacement when needed. The combination of complete system protection along with high quality construction and field-replaceable modules makes this new offering a perfect fit for protecting alarm systems and control panels.

“The new DTK-120X12 brings together a simple and complete solution for fire alarm systems,” said Michael Molinari, Director of Marketing, DITEK. “By expanding protection beyond the primary power supply to the low voltage signaling and control circuits, this new protection solution drastically reduces the chances that these wires can carry destructive surges back into the Fire Control Panel. There is no better way to quickly protect a fire alarm system.”

The DTK-120X12 base is designed to be wall mounted and hardwired, and includes the 120VAC power surge protection unit with dry contacts for remote monitoring of surge protection status. The 120VAC module also has LEDs for visual confirmation of status, as well as a loud audible alarm that sounds if protection has been compromised. This three-way notification is designed to ensure that the system will not remain unprotected. The base also has space for mounting up to 6 compatible low voltage protection modules (DTK-2MHLP and/or DTK-2MHTP) that can be used to protect up to 12 SLC, NAC, IDC, PIV, and dialer circuit pairs (these modules must be ordered separately to match the needs of the installation). All the protection modules are field-replaceable, allowing for quick restoration of protection when needed. A sliding cover is provided to prevent accidental contact.

The DTK-120X12 is UL1449 listed as a Type 2 SPD and UL497B for surge protection, UL1283 listed for EMI/RFI noise filtering, and complies with applicable IEEE standards. The DTK-120X12 is made in the USA, with a 10-year limited warranty.
