Surge Protection Devices

Phoenix Contact VAL-MS BE-AR Surge Protection Device (SPD) modules provide reliable, touch-safe surge protection and termination specifically for railroad control and signal systems. The BE-AR line combines advanced connection and hybrid surge protection technologies, reducing the cost of labor and unnecessary replacement parts for wayside track equipment and improving track uptime. Compliant with AREMA C&S recommended practices, the BE-AR line of products provides significant advantages over existing American Association of Railroad (AAR) connection and protection practices in one easy-to-install solution. The BE-AR devices are four times faster to install and maintain than traditional AAR ice-cube-style SPDs.
