MCG’s new Direct Current AEP-12 and AEP-24 protect sensitive electronics from damaging transients that occur in a battery/ alternator electrical system. Designed with high performance and safety standards in mind, the AEP protectors will withstand repetitive transients that occur on a daily basis, in addition to the alternator’s load dump transient. The units feature both over- current and thermal fusing. If there is more than one piece of critical equipment on the same circuit, multiple protectors may be employed where required.
The AEP-12 and AEP-24 are easily installed on the DC power bus in front of the electronics to be protected. As a result of its parallel connection, the power path integrity to the load is not affected. The units can be used where critical and/or costly equipment exists in generator sets, military vehicles, trucks, and buses.
