MD-LC2

Lightning Surge Protectors for
Electronics Equipment M-RESTER

LIGHTNING SURGE PROTECTOR FOR
STRAIN GAUGE USE
(6-wire remote sensing)

Functions & Features
•Designed to protect strain gauge transmitters from lightning surge damage that enters on the wiring between the strain gauge and the transmitter
•Six-wire remote sensing
•Absorbing surges only without affecting instrumentation signal
