ABLE POWER PRODUCTS
LED Surge Protection and Over/Under Voltage Control Experts
Introducing the NEW Overvoltage & Undervoltage Cutoff Devices from
Designed to protect LED fixtures from the harmful and damaging effects of sudden increases and decreases in supply power.
The OVCD line is available in three voltages, 120V, 230V, and 277V and uses terminals to ensure secure connection and operability.
Ideal for DOTs, Municipalities, and Utilities that have identified high risk areas or troubled sites due to lightning issues or power related problems.
Origins of Transient Voltage
Power or voltage surges are brief bursts of energy caused by a sudden change in the electrical conditions of a circuit; they are virtually inevitable. Wherever electrical or electronic equipment is used, power surges can and do occur. While often lasting only a millisecond, power surges can raise the voltage in electronic circuits from a few hundred to as much as several thousand volts. They are one of the most severe, common and immediate dangers to modern, sensitive electronic equipment. In fact, Business Week estimates that power surges cost $26 billion a year in lost time, equipment repair and replacement costs.
The most well-known cause of power surges is electrical storms. When lightning strikes near power lines, even if there is no direct contact, the rapid ionization of the air and the sheer amount of energy in the lightning are enough to induce additional potential energy in the lines, causing a power surge.
Excellence in Product Performance and Longevity Through Innovation
ABLE Power Products offers a full line of solutions for designing, retrofitting or upgrading your LED lighting installations. We provide easy step-by-step design options and retrofit customization, utilizing our design engineers, our world-class manufacturing facility and our UL certified design center.
Combined GDT / MOV Circuit
This circuit uses each component to do what each does best: the gas discharge tube diverts the high energy portion of the transient and the MOV provides the fast, accurate clamping of the low energy leading edge.
Safety Thermal Fusing
We manufacture the Thermally Fused Metal Oxide Varistors (TFMOV) used in all of our Surge Protection Devices (SPDs). This safety feature distinguishes us from the competition and prevents overheating and catastrophic failure.
Hybrid Gas Discharge Tube (GDT)
Gas tubes eliminate MOV current leakage which extends the life of your surge protector and protected equipment.

Receptacle Surge Protection
Our latest innovation was created with evolving technology in mind. Our patented 3-pin and 7-pin receptacles have a unique grounding system that when used with our fast plug-in surge module will remove electrical disturbances from the system before they can cause damage or downtime. In addition to providing premium protection for the drivers and controls, placing the surge device outside the fixture makes it more accessible, serviceable, and ideal for retrofit applications.
