COMPANY INTRODUCTION
Bridex Singapore Pte Ltd is founded in 1978 as a manufacturer of instruments transformer for the
Asian market. We are the first local electrical switchgear components manufacturer that launches
our own Asian identity –
Today we aim to become a knowledge-based, technology driven engineering organization,
with emphasis on providing solution for electrical distribution and control. We specialize in the
area of instruments, distribution & protection and power quality solution. With our present
headquarter in Singapore and subsidiaries that are located in Australia, Malaysia, Philippines and
representative office in Vietnam, we are well equipped to service both local market and countries
in the Asia Pacific.
PRODUCTION INTRODUCTION
Rudolf Surge Protective Devices
Transient over-voltage is characterized with high peak values, rapid amplitude growth and a short
duration. Surge voltages can be caused by:
-
Lightning
-
Switching of electrical loads by the power utilities
-
Switching of high power machines
-
Electro-static discharges
When a surge voltage is produced in an electrical conductor, an over-current with a magnitude
of several kA is lead to earth, it can reach installation through low voltage network, data lines
(voice & data), high frequency lines (antennas) or conductors of earth terminations. In order to
avoid the over-current destroying the equipment connected to the electrical system, surge protective
device is installed in front of the equipment to derive the current generated by the surge voltage
directly to earth. This action by-pass the surge voltage from the equipment and lead it to earth.
Surge Protection Devices are needed in any kind of electrical installation, in order to protect and
provide the following benefits:
-
Protect against lightning, its destructive consequences, and the costly repairs and downtimes
that they originate;
-
Avoid downtimes caused by random logic failures (that require to restart electronic equipment
to get it back into operation);
-
Increase operative life of electronics, by providing to it always a clean and disturbancefree power supply;
surge protective devices – the brand that add values to your solution.

BASIC FEATURES
In order to select the most appropriate SPD, we need to understand the selection criteria:
Maximum discharge current (Imax)
: The maximum current through the SPD having an 8/20
wave-shape and magnitude to derive the over-current to
earth for one time without suffering damage.
Nominal discharge current (In)
: The current through the SPD having a 8/20 wave-shape
and magnitude to derive the over-current to earth for
15 times without suffering damage.
Voltage protection level (Up)
: The performance of the SPD in limiting the voltage across
its terminals when the nominal discharge current passes
through it.
Maximum continuous operating voltage/ : The maximum r.m.s. voltage which may be continuously
rated voltage (Uc)
applies to the SPD mode of protection.
Location of the protector in accordance to international standard recommendation is classify into
3 classes.
-
Class I : High protection level, 10/350 wave-shape to be assemble at the entry connection
-
Class II : Medium protection level, 8/20 wave-shape to be assemble downstream from
Class I protection for example: at the LV Main Switchboard.
-
Class III : Fine protection level, 8/20 wave-shape to be assemble at the load end or
downstream from Class II protection.
SPDs are parallel units hence its installation is easy and fast.
General Installation Rules
•
Selection of RUDOLF’s SPD to be installed, this is done by verify the specifications of the
electrical installation with the specifications of your selected RUDOLF’s SPD. (Voltage,nr. of
phases, protection level);
•
Read the installation manual before installing any RUDOLF’s SPD;
•
Measure voltage between L-N and L-L in your system. Check if the voltage is correct in respect
to the Uc of the selected RUDOLF’s SPD;
•
Check if PE is correct (according to the standards);
•
Select MCB if needed;
•
Switch-off the power supply on the line or panels where the RUDOLF’s SPD must be connected;
•
Connection of RUDOLF’s SPD in parallel;
•
Check the wire distance between the RUDOLF’s SPD and the connection point to the Line.
-
Very important: the wire distance between the RUDOLF’s SPD and the AC Line should be
kept as short as possible, ideally at no more than 1 meter.
-
Above 1 meter of connecting wire length, the Up will increase at 20 V per every additional
20 cm. (decreasing performance due to larger impedance).
•
Keep the connecting wire as straight as possible. Do not coil it.
•
Ground properly the RUDOLF’s SPD.
•
If RUDOLF’s SPD is connected in a cabinet or in combination with an RCB, install the RUDOLF’s
SPD prior to the RCB.
•
When turning power “on”, check if diagnostics are OK. If out of order switch off the power,
check connections and try again.
