Inrush Current Limiter
What are Inrush Current Limiters and what are they used for?
An Inrush Current Limiter is a component used within industrial applications to limit the input current during the initial start-up phases; the main objective is to prevent internal damage to electrical components as well as the tripping of circuit breakers.
Placed within the power circuits they are intended to protect, current limiters have a higher resistance to prevent too high a flow when the electrical system is switched on and to avoid overvoltage of starting current (the phase which generally requires more energy).
In addition to ensuring the proper functioning of the electrical system, especially in LED lighting installations, inrush current limiters can contribute to greater energy savings and a longer lifetime of the devices, reducing the number of components and wiring costs, while at the same time providing tenfold economic benefits
