Vaisala WSP150 Surge Protector is a compact, transient overvoltage suppressor for outdoor use. It can be used with Vaisala weather instrumentation, notably the Vaisala WXT530 Multi-Variable Weather Transmitter. It can provide overvoltage protection for 2 power supply lines and RS-422, RS-485, RS-232 serial communication, or 2 mA loop lines. In weather instrumentation, which is commonly installed outdoors, high up, issues can be found via lightning strikes. A lightning strike nearby may induce a high voltage surge, which the integral transient suppressor of the instrument may not tolerate. Additional protection is needed, especially where frequent and severe thunderstorms are common and where cables longer than 30 m are used.
Also consider Vaisala WSP150 where you have unshielded, open-wire lines. Vaisala WSP150 offers 3-stage protection against surge currents up to 10 kA entering through the power and signal cables.
