6A366-1 Surge Protector

Rv-SP-1

RV-SP-x

In-Line DC Surge Protector. The RV-SP-x is designed to be plugged in-line with the DC input to electrical devices that may be subject to over-voltage (> 16V) events, large transient voltage spikes, electrical noise, or RF noise. It filters the DC and protects the connected device from over-voltage and transient events.
