EGPE65 Electronic Grade
Easily mounts with most major brands of non-linear, six-wire panelboards – compatible with all Current Technology MasterPLAN suppression filter systems
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

SINGLE PULSE SURGE CURRENT CAPACITY
|Protection mode||Single pulse surge current capacity per mode|
|Per Phase||>130,000 amps|
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.
REPETITIVE SURGE CURRENT CAPACITY
Minimum tested impulses per 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.
