 EBN 2 Inrush Current Protector

  • Limits capacitive inrush currents, prevents relay contracts sticking and increases the number of ECG per cutout by 2.5x
  • Simple installation, Flexible use
  • Easy mounting directly in the control cabinet (DIN rail dimensions)


Modern energy-saving lighting (and almost all electronic power supplies or ballasts) cause high inrush currents up to 100A due to their capacitive switch-on characteristics! These current peaks often result in glued or welded relay contacts.


By using the inrush current limiter, the effort of installation in big systems will be reduced because a higher number of LED drivers per strand and circuit breaker is possible.


The EBN 2 is a rail-mounted inrush current limiter for up to 16A continuous load. 

With the EBN 2 the quantity of LED drivers on a 16A type B circuit breaker can be approximately 2,5x as many compared to an installation without the EBN 2.
