PC62.51 - Guide for the Application of Plug-in Multiservice Surge-Protective Devices (MSPDs) for Equipment Connected to AC Mains and Information and Communication Technology (ICT) Metallic Cables
This Guide considers the ramifications of deploying multiservice surge protective devices (MSPDs) as specified in C62.50: Standard for Performance Criteria and Test Methods for Plug-in (Portable) Multiservice (Multiport) Surge-Protective Devices for Equipment Connected to a 120/240 V Single Phase Power Service and metallic conductive communication line(s). Topics covered are: * MSPD protected and unprotected side port overvoltage conditions * Ground/earth potential rise effects * Stress levels of items connected to the MSPD unprotected side ports * Use of multiple MSPDs * Simulations of premises surge conditions.
