The PCL16A inrush peak current limiter is a device that safeguards against excessive inrush currents that would otherwise trip the circuit breaker causing potential damage to the switching devices.
Enabling the installation of more luminaires on existing circuit breakers reducing the overall installation costs.
The short-term inrush current of some modern LED drivers can be significantly higher than that of conventional high-frequency control gear. This can cause problems with nuisance tripping within the circuit protection (MCBs) and can damage devices used to control/switch the lighting load. Therefore it is important that the electrical circuit design is appropriate for the luminaires and the circuit has the required electrical protection.
