MD6T-65

Lightning Surge Protectors for
Electronics Equipment M-RESTER

LIGHTNING SURGE PROTECTOR FOR
STANDARD SIGNAL LINE & PULSE USE
(conduit mount, weather-proof; 65 V DC line voltage)

Functions & Features
• Designed specifically for 4 – 20 mA DC and pulse signal line including both 4-wire and 2-wire transmitters
• Direct mount in a wiring conduit of outdoor
enclosures
• Absorbs surges only without affecting instrumentation signal

MODEL: MD6T–65–[1][2][3]

ORDERING INFORMATION
• Code number: MD6T–65–[1][2][3]
Specify a code from below for each [1] through [3].

CAUTION
The packing of the cable gland must be separate from the body. Choose an appropriate one for the environment in which the surge protector is used.

GENERAL SPECIFICATIONS
Degree of protection: IP65
Wiring conduit: See ‘Ordering information.’
Connection
  Cable side
: Terminal block (leadwire diameter: 0.14 – 1.5 mm2 for both stranded and solid wires; or AWG26 – 16)
  Equipment side: Leadwires (leadwire diameter AWG20 for grounding; AWG22 for the protected equipment)
Body material: Nickel-plated brass or stainless steel 316

Discharge current capacity: 10000 A (8/ 20 μsec.)
Max. load current: 100 mA
Internal series resistance: Approx. 22 Ω including return
Max. line voltage 
  Without safety approval: 70 V DC
  With safety approval: 66 V DC
Capacitance @ 1 kHz:
