New from Lightning Eliminators and Consultants are two transient limiters, the TL-50 and -80.
Each provides protection for AC electrical circuits.
The lower-cost TL-50 is rated at 50,000 amps; the TL-80 is rated at 80,000 amps. Both provide protection in all modes: L-N, L-G and NG. Both use large 40 mm MOVs without paralleling to reduce parts and aid in heat dissipation.
These models incorporate a bus bar type of internal connection, which the company says is more robust than PC board designs. The models have UL 1449 2nd Edition Listings; they mount directly to the circuit panel through a nipple-mounted connection and are internally fused. They come in watertight, dust proof, NEMA 4X enclosures for indoor or outdoor use.

How to Protect Against Lightning

In reality, everything about lightning actually is very predictable, with every aspect conforming to the unalterable laws of physics. What makes it unpredictable from our perspective is that there are an impossibly large number of variables; we simply cannot know all the factors that enter the equation in a particular situation.
