EGPE65 Electronic Grade
Panelboard Extension
Technical Specifications Easily mounts with most major brands of non-linear, six-wire panelboards – compatible with all Current Technology MasterPLAN suppression filter systems
FEATURES
No other manufacturer comes close to the innovative, cost effective and practical electronic panelboard alternatives offered by Current Technology. Logical EGPE Panelboard Extensions permit the quick and easy addition of Current Technology's UL 1449 Listed suppression and UL 1283 Listed filtering to electric panelboards at the jobsite. Mounted at the top, bottom or adjacent to virtually any panelboard, EGPE Panelboard Extensions include the following standard features:

seamless technology: Proprietary design concept integrates three key suppression and filtering components – polypropylene capacitors, non-linear voltage dependent metal oxide varistors (MOVs) and precise component geometry – for maximum performance and reliability

Superior internal construction: All suppression filter components are bolted to corrosion-resistant tin-plated copper bus bar

Status indicators: Neon status indicators indicate suppression and overcurrent status

Test point: Diagnostic ten mode test point allows easy DTS-2 Diagnostic Test Set connection

Warranty: Five Year Product Warranty

INDUSTRY STANDARDS CERTIFICATION

description

UL 1449

Underwriters Laboratories standard that establishes requirements for surge suppression safety and performance. Commonly recognized as a benchmark test for product comparison

UL 1283

Underwriters Laboratories standard dictating requirements for electromagnetic interference (EMI) filters installed on, or connected to, 600V or lower potential circuits installed in accordance with the National Electrical Code. Also covers filters used to attenuate unwanted high frequency signals generated from electromagnetic sources

In compliance with NEMA LS 1-1992, paragraphs 2.2.7, 2.2.9 and 3.9, Current Technology suppression filter systems are single pulse surge current tested in all modes at currents up to 150% of the product design rating by an industry-recognized independent test laboratory. Single pulse surge current capacities of 200,000 amps or less are established by single-unit testing of all components within each mode. Due to present industry test equipment limitations, single pulse surge current capacities over 200,000 amps are established via testing of individual components or sub-assemblies within a mode.

Per ANSI/IEEE C62.41-1991 and ANSI/IEEE C62.45-1992, all Current Technology suppression filter systems are repetitive surge current capacity tested in every mode utilizing a 1.2 X 50m sec 20KV open circuit voltage, 8 X 20 m sec 10 KA short circuit current Category C3 bi-wave at one minute internals without suffering either performance degradation or more than 10% deviation of clamping voltage at a specified surge current.
