Thomas Research Products (Elgin, IL) has introduced a line of surge protectors that show when they need to be replaced. The EOL3-277-20KA series Surge Protectors include an LED indicator that lights up when the unit reaches end-of-life, when the capabilities of the surge protector have been exceeded. The indicator also flashes at "power-up" to confirm that the LED is functioning. In-line fusing shuts down the LED luminaire to protect it until the Surge Protector is replaced. Two models are available. One includes a local LED indicator on the unit, while one is designed to operate a remote indicator that can be mounted elsewhere on the luminaire. A remote LED indicator is available with 18" leads. These surge protectors:
- Are designed for luminaires on electrical mains up to 277 V.
- Protect from surges up 20,000 A
- Are UL1449 Recognized components. The EOL3 is also CE certified.
