Would you buy something that you cannot see, touch or feel?
For instance, if you wanted to buy a new mobile phone today, and you walked into the mobile shop and after describing your needs the salesman told you, “Oh we have just got the solution for you! This phone solves all your problems and have the latest features and technology. However we do not have the sample for you to see, so you will have to make payment first before we give you the actual phone.”
Would you still buy the phone?
From the most reliable UK – Universal Screw terminal blocks to advance spring technology terminal blocks, Phoenix Contact has successfully developed and produced terminal blocks over the past90 years.
As terminal block innovation is the heart and soul of our company, Phoenix Contact never fails our customers with new terminal block innovations over the decades.
6 years ago, the GMM building was struck by lightning – resulting in loss of functionality of their core businesses in media streaming of movies and music. Consumers were unable to download of all these as a result of these lightning surges. All of these caused a massive financial loss for the company.
Thankfully, Phoenix Contact Thailand was on hand to help GMM solve this problem and ensure that there will not be a repeat of this again.
Phoenix Contact’s new PT-IQ Ex models from the self-monitoring Plugtrab PT-IQ surge protection system are specifically designed for intrinsically safe applications and can be installed directly in Ex zone 2. The intrinsically safe signal circuits can be routed up to Ex zone O. Continue reading
The new Plugtrab PT-IQ-5-HF surge protection introduces intelligent arresters for data interfaces. The switching options are characterized by the safe transmission of higher data rates and are therefore suitable for the protection of bus systems such as Profibus, RS 485, RS 422, Interbus, Canbus, or Modbus.

Hello loyal readers of our blog. My name is Gary Lim and you may know me as the surge protection guy for electrical / electronics application for Lightning and Surge Protection.
Everyday, every moment, there is a possible chance that our electrical/electronics application can be exposed to lightning or man-made overvoltages.
The potential damages can range from: equipment damages to even worse, loss of human lives. So allow me to share with you my thoughts on this matter.
Phoenix Contact’s VAL-MS T1/T2 48 surge arresters efficiently protect 48V DC systems for mobile telecommunications against lightning and surge voltages.
VAL-MS…DC-PV surge arresters from Phoenix Contact, designed to protect photovoltaic systems against lightning and surge voltages, now have UL and Kema approvals.
Detecting and Analyzing Lightning Strikes
Industrial systems are frequently subject to high loads due to lightning strikes, which can cause both direct and secondary damage. The LM-S lightning monitoring system detects and analyzes lightning surge currents, providing a way to evaluate the actual system load.
All industrial sectors are striving to maintain the availability of their systems and avoid costly unplanned downtimes. Lightning strikes are a frequent cause of system failures. Electrical and electronic components should be effectively safeguarded using surge protection.
The new BT-1S-230AC/O type 3 protector from Phoenix Contact offers surge voltage protection for loads in single-phase power circuits with 230 V AC nominal voltage. The main areas of application for these universal modules are installation sockets, dado trunking, underfloor installations and connection spaces in end devices.
