3. Upstream Over-Current Protection Device

ServiceTrack must be connected in parallel with the electrical system. It must be connected to an overcurrent protection
device (circuit breaker or fused switch) rated 200A maximum. If the suppressor is connected to a dedicated overcurrent
protection device, a 60A breaker is recomended (30A minimum, 200A maximum). The advantage of using a dedicated over-
current protection device for the suppressor (even if the upstream breaker is 200A or less) is that it allows the suppressor to
be de-energized during service without disturbing the electrical service to the rest of the facility.

4. Conductor Routing

!
WARNING! ServiceTrack's performance will be limited severely if the conductors are (a) too long, (b) are of too
small a wire gauge, (c) have too many bends or (d) have sharp bends.
The factors listed above should be addressed during the design of an installation to reserve a suitable place for ServiceTrack
next to its point of connection to the electrical system. The selected mounting location should allow for the shortest possible
conductor runs and a direct route with a minimum of bends. If bends are required, they should be sweeping bends. Do not
make sharp 90° bends for appearance purposes because they will severely decrease the effectiveness of ServiceTrack.

5. Conductor Sizing

Joslyn recommends installing ServiceTrack by using the following conductor sizes for phase, ground and neutral connec-
tions. The conductor length should be as short as possible to ensure the maximum level of protection. Use a larger conductor
(#2 AWG maximum) where space and bending radii permit.
Example of a suppressor model number: TK-SE200-3Y208

6. Conduit Openings

If desired, punch holes at this time for the conduit or nipple or wait until ServiceTrack is properly mounted. Punch holes
only in the shaded areas as shown in the following illustrations:
