  • Note connection side: Due to the different protective character of the two module connections (bus side vs. device side), we recommend connecting the longer part of the serial connection on the bus side and the short part - especially to protect servers, extension and valuable devices - on the device side of the module.
  • Long lines: Usually, serial RS-232 connections are limited to 10 to 15 metres. Normally, one module is sufficient here. However, repeaters can also be used to establish longer connections or to implement them via other media (network / fibre optics). In the case of long connections or two valuable devices, you should use one of these protective modules on each side and install them antiserially (the device sides of the modules facing the devices and the respective bus sides facing each other).


    • PLCs, gateways, devices with RS-232: This module is compatible with all RS-232 bus systems, regardless of protocol, and can be used with all servers, PLCs, gateways and devices with this interface.
    • Timberwolf Server: This module is compatible with the RS-232 interfaces on all models of Timberwolf Server.
    • Loxone Extensions: This module is compatible with the Loxone RS-232 Extension.

    The capacitive load of the two data lines of the RS-232 connection through this surge arrester is approx. 400 picofarads.


    • What is the function of the BlitzART RS-232 surge arrester?
      The BlitzART RS-232 surge arrester reduces the consequences of a near and far lightning strike by quickly equalising all connected wires with each other with the lightning current potential equalisation and an almost complete interruption of the current flow between the bus and the device side of the module. As a result of the equalisation and the blocking, voltages are considerably reduced and thus components and insulation of the devices and the bus lines are protected.
    • Reduced means "not complete"?
      No system in the world can provide 100% safety. However, depending on the design, it is possible to significantly reduce the probabilities of damage caused by lightning. This BlitzART RS-232 surge arrester, with its extremely short response time and low protection level, is able to provide the best available level of protection for RS-232 systems. Especially when these arresters are installed at several points in the system. On the equipment side of the module, the surge voltage is virtually eliminated. Even with a massive surge voltage of 10,000 V and 5,000 A (8/20 µs) on the bus side, the protective voltage on the equipment side is only 10 V at a few mA after 1 µs. This eliminates any damage to the RS-232 components on the equipment side.
      For maximum effectiveness of the arresters, we recommend supplementing the low-voltage part of the system with arresters for power systems type 1 and type 2 (or combination arresters type 1/2). Consult a specialist company for this.
    • What are the planning and installation recommendations for the best protection?
      Please plan one or more modules per RS-232 connection, depending on the scope of the bus system.

      Install one module in close proximity to protect the more valuable system (usually PLC, gateway, server or extension). Loop the RS-232 connections directly from these systems to the RS-232 bus (which you connect to the bus side) via the equipment side of the module.

      For a longer serial connection (more than 50 m), we recommend installing another module in the middle of the connection, connecting the RS-232 bus only to the bus side of the module. RS-232 connections do not support tapping, so do not connect devices on the device side of the protective module - installed in the middle of the bus.

      For very long RS-232 connections, install another module every 50 m (normally such distances with RS-232 can only be reached with repeaters, the BlitzART module should then protect this repeater).

      Most important additional measure: Have internal lightning protection (type 1 and type 2 arresters) for power supply networks installed.
    • The RS-232 bus can be galvanically separated from everything else as a SELV system and the lines are shielded. How can an overvoltage, a lightning strike destroy this?
      Nothing is perfect, not even foil shields. Therefore, capacitive and inductive coupling of the lightning energy is possible. In addition, the insulations are designed for 4,000 V, but lightning generates voltages of up to several hundred thousand volts. Therefore, all insulations are at risk, especially if they are very close to / in contact with PE, neutral and all external conductors. We recommend separate, separate cable routing of all lines of information technology systems, as well as signal and bus lines of power supply lines. Separate metallic and closed cable racks or channels for cable routing would be optimal.

      There is a danger with applied shielding, especially if it is applied on both sides. In the event of a nearby lightning strike, the lightning voltage is conducted through the foundation earth electrode into the building and thus to the PE of the entire building. The shield is live and may also have to compensate for currents. This stresses the shield itself and the insulation inside the bus lines. This surge arrester for RS-232 has a low-impedance PE connection and compensates for potential differences. Please connect the PE connection of the protective modules to the same PE terminal block to which the shield is applied. From this terminal block, a length of at least 2 m to the PAS should be maintained (so that, purely in terms of time, a type 2 arrester can switch through first).
    • What endangers the insulation?
      Ein Blitzschlag bedeutet eine Entladung zwischen Wolke und Erde über eine Luftstrecke, die kurzzeitig leitfähig ist. Ausgehend von dem Blitzkanal als stromdurchflossener Leiter wird ein elektrisches und ein magnetisches Feld um diesen herum erzeugt. Diese Felder koppeln kapazitiv und induktiv in Leitungen und Leiterschleifen ein und ändern die Potentiale in allen metallischen Leitern im gesamten Gebäude. Die nahe Erde kann nur einen Teil der Blitzenergie aufnehmen. Etwa die Hälfte der Energie wird durch den Fundamenterder über PE in das Gebäude geleitet. Damit steht bei einem nahen Blitzschlag die Potentialausgleichsschiene und damit der gesamte PE über den Fundamenterder unter einem sehr hohen Spannungspotential von mehreren zehntausend Volt. Diese Potentialunterschiede wollen sich untereinander und zur fernen Erde in der über den Netzanschluss erreichbaren Trafostation (und je nach Netzform auch zur Erde der benachbarten Gebäude) hin ausgleichen. Um diesen Weg nehmen zu können, versucht die Blitz
    • How does this BlitzART surge arrester protect?
      The different potentials that form in metallic conductors when lightning strikes close by want to equalise. The equalisation takes the path of least resistance. This BlitzART arrester offers the surge voltage a simple path by creating a massive short-circuit almost immediately in the event of a sudden voltage increase, through which the potentials can equalise. The BlitzART surge arrester involves the three connected wires and PE and creates a short-circuit between all four connections. This offers the surge voltage an immediate and low-impedance equalisation, so that potential differences are considerably reduced and insulation and components are thus protected.
      Such an overvoltage event is already completed after twenty millionths of a second in this area of the cabling. During this short time, the components convert several thousand W of heat. A lightning bolt has an average energy of 280 kWh, about one tenth of which is converted on the ground and in the installations.
    • Why are there 12 switching, protection and flashover paths in this BlitzART surge arrester?
      Each component for surge protection has its own characteristics with regard to reaction time, voltage limitation, tripping voltage, maximum voltage, discharge capacity, heat absorption, leakage current, capacitance and polarity. There is no component that is the leader in all these characteristics; often one parameter is very pronounced, while others are less so. So that we did not have to make a compromise with this BlitzART surge arrester, we combined several components with a total of 12 protection and surge paths in a three-stage cascade in such a way that components with the shortest possible reaction time complement each other with components with a high discharge capacity of amperes. In this way, we achieve a previously impossible level of protection.
    • I have removed the assembly from the module. On the underside of the board I see nine component pins that are not soldered. Has something been forgotten here?
      No, these nine pins belong to the high-current PE connection. Over the four edges of each of the nine pins, the component is homogeneously cold-welded to the through-platings of the board by means of a press fit in the factory at 36 connection points. This connection technique is mechanically very stable (pull-out force 900 N), at the same time very low-impedance (less than 200 µOhm), permanently gas-tight and can carry high currents (500 amperes permanently). With this - and the crimped cable lug for uncut PE connection with high cross-section - we achieve a low-impedance PE connection.
    • Are there any tips for the connection to PE?
    1. Same PE terminal blocks: If a surge arrester protects devices that themselves have a mains voltage connection with a protective earth conductor (for example, a power supply unit for supplying servers and devices), then the PE connection of the surge arrester should be routed to the equipotential bonding with the same or lower impedance than the connection of the protective earth conductor of the device that is also to be protected to the equipotential bonding. We therefore recommend routing the PE connection of the surge arrester on the shortest path to the same PE terminal block to which the protective earth conductor of the power supply unit to be protected is connected (provided it is a power supply unit with a PE connection).
      The same applies if the shield of the bus cabling (usually not recommended, but may be partially useful for interference suppression) has been connected to PE. In this case, the PE of the surge arrester should be routed to the same PE terminal block to which the shield has been connected. Such shield connections should be tied over the entire shield circumference with special clamps; the often braided braids are electrically unfavourable for discharging transient overvoltages).
    2. Ordentliche Arbeitsweise: Führen Sie den PE-Anschluss bitte mit größter Sorgfalt aus. Verquetschen Sie ausschließlich diejenigen Leiterklassen im richtigen Querschnitt, die für den verwendeten Quetschkabelschuh jeweils zugelassen sind und verwenden Sie hierfür nur die korrekte Quetschzange (wenn Sie den mitgelieferten Quetschkabelschuh verwenden. lesen Sie bitte in den technischen Daten nach). Schrauben Sie die Mutter am Anschluss gut fest (Anzugsmomente in den technischen Daten beachten). Verlegen Sie die Leitung auf dem kürzesten Weg zum PE-Klemmenblock und schrauben Sie die Leitung auch dort ordentlich fest (Angaben des Klemmenherstellers beachten, insbesondere zum Gebrauch von Adernendhülsen und zu den für diese Klemme erlaubten Querschnitte). Vermeiden Sie unbedingt eine räumliche Schleife im Gebäude zu bilden (um Induktion bei Blitzschlag zu vermeiden) und wickeln Sie keinesfalls die PE Leitung um etwas herum (keine Spule bauen). Es ist wichtig, dass diese Anschlüsse mechanisch fest, dauerha
    • I have external lightning protection, do I need this BlitzART surge arrester at all?
      Yes, absolutely. If external lightning protection ("lightning conductor") is present, additional internal lightning protection is always required (in accordance with the relevant standards). After all, the lightning is conducted from the lightning conductor directly via the foundation earth electrode into the building onto the equipotential bonding rail. From there, the overvoltage attempts to pass through to all neighbouring metallic conductors with a lower potential. Only internal lightning protection prevents this by short-circuiting all metallic conductors to each other. This BlitzART surge arrester is an important component of such internal lightning protection at level C2 / Type 2 and takes over this task for the connected bus and its server. This is a supplement to the coarse and medium protection according to Type 1 and Type 2, which must also be installed, and which must be installed by an expert for lightning protection systems.
    • Isn't surge protection built into the units?
      Richtig, in den meisten Geräten sind kleine Schutzdioden eingebaut, üblicherweise bestehend aus einem einzigen Element. Diese Schutzelemente sind für das Bestehen des gesetzlich vorgeschriebenen Surge-Tests dimensioniert. In diesem Test fließen kurzzeitig nur geringe Ströme von 10 bis 24 A. Das ist bei weitem nicht ausreichend, um Blitzteilströme zu tragen. Zudem wirken diese eingebauten Schutzelemente nur zwischen den BUS-Leitungen (Querspannung), jedoch nicht gegenüber PE (Längsspannung). Damit werden die Isolationen von Servern SPS, Spannungsversorgung und die der Busleitungen nicht geschützt. In den meisten Fällen wird bei direktem oder nahem Blitzschlag die Überspannung durch PE (und womöglich über die Außenleiter) in das Haus geführt. Daher muss für optimalen Schutz der Isolierungen und Bauteile ein Ausgleich aller Leitungen untereinander und mit PE erfolgen, damit sich alle Anlagenbestandteile auf dem gleichen Potential befinden. Dieser BlitzART Überspannungsableiter kann etwa das fün
    • When does the BlitzART surge arrester trip?
      The fine stage starts to conduct from about 28 V, the gas voltage arresters ignite from about 150 V and a rate of voltage rise that is typical for surge events with a correspondingly steep rising edge. The overcurrent limiters act from 200 mA
    • Will a BlitzART surge arrester be destroyed by lightning?
      No, usually not, this module can withstand lightning currents of up to 5,000 amps. If this should ever happen, please let us know, we will certainly find an accommodating compensation.


    Surge arrester type 2 for RS232 with three-stage protection system with disconnection of the current flow to the equipment side.

    This surge arrester can discharge 5,000 amperes (8/20 µs, pulse category C2, fast rising edge). In addition, this protection system is equipped with the innovative ElabNET Current-Cut technology (self-resetting high-speed fuse 1µs), which provides additional protection even against low overvoltages (e.g. short-circuit with 48 V due to wiring error).

    This BlitzART protection system is thus a combined protection system consisting of a very powerful type 2 surge arrester plus a very sensitive overcurrent protection (200 mA / 1 µs). Within one microsecond, the overcurrent protection switches off a possible damaging current to the unit side which could still occur due to the remaining protection level of the other two stages. The reset after the overcurrent event takes place automatically within one millisecond.

    This short-circuits overvoltages, compensates for potential differences and additionally separates remaining overcurrents. Due to this special combination, the achievable device protection is at least ten times better than conventional protection systems without this third protection level.

    Intended use / area of application / intended use:

    This RS-232 surge arrester of category C2 / type 2 according to IEC 61643-21 is intended for installation in distribution cabinets and junction boxes in dry residential and business premises, control cabinets in industry and automation systems. It serves as a surge arrester between electrical conductors of the RS-232 bus system and the equipotential bonding rail in case of direct and near lightning strikes as well as overvoltages from switching operations and discharges the partial lightning current into the earthing system. We recommend the combination with a surge arrester for power supply networks type 1 and type 2 as well as the use of several of these RS-232 BlitzART modules in the system.

    This module is designed for all RS-232 bus systems without restrictions.

    • Surge arrester as part of the internal lightning protection for RS-232-based bus systems
    • Arrester for overvoltages from galvanic, inductive and capacitive coupling as a result of close lightning strikes (atmospheric overvoltage)
    • Arresters for overvoltages due to distant lightning strikes (e.g. in transmission networks)
    • Arresters for overvoltages due to switching operations in low-, medium- and high-voltage networks (switching overvoltage)
    • Self-resetting, fast-acting overcurrent protection device, thus protection even against low overvoltages (e.g. 12 V on the bus-side connections in case of incorrect wiring).

    Note: This module has three protective effects, which differ depending on the connection side. The power stage acts on the bus side of the module and can compensate or discharge 5,000 amperes. Both connection sides are connected via a three-pole overcurrent protection stage. The downstream ultra-fast fine stage initially acts on both connection sides at the start of an overvoltage event; once the overcurrent protection stage is activated, the current flow between both sides is limited, so that the voltage compensation of the fine stage only has an effect on the device side (as long as the event lasts) and drastically reduces the terminal voltage there once again. For details, please read below under Function and Effect

    • Bus side: After all three protection stages have been triggered, the gas voltage arresters act on the bus side and equalise up to 5,000 amperes.
    • Device side: After all three protection stages have been triggered, the overcurrent protection reduces the current flow between both sides to 200 mA per path, the fine stage on the device side now reduces the protection voltage to 10 V.
