LSP model DT-CAT 6A/EA is specifically designed to protect communication devices connected via Ethernet LAN from lightning surge entering through network cables.
Multi-stage protection is provided for all four pairs of conductors in Cat. 5e performance (1000BASE-T, 100BASE-TX and 10BASE-T) with minimal interference, tested for up to the maximum 100-meter segment length as defined in the standard. An equal level of protection is ensured for the core-to-core voltage used for PoE. Both Alternative A and Alternative B configurations are usable to supply power to the protected network device.
The compact module can be placed close to PCs, wireless hubs/switches and webcams in rolled-up LAN cables. It can also be snapped on a DIN rail for high-density mounting in a 19-inch rack together with Ethernet switches or inside a control panel with PLCs. Individual earth wiring is not necessary when you ground the DIN rail.
Shield terminal, frame grounding, signal grounding may be provided or not depending on the protected devices. The DT-CAT 6A/EA is provided as ‘grounding’ mode with a shortcircuit bar connecting the shield and the ground terminals. Removing the bar turns the module to ‘floating’ mode so that a ground loop problem can be easily fixed. By separating the shield and the ground, the former terminal can be used for individual signal grounding.
Every year lightning destroys millions of dollars of sensitive electronic equipment. Millions more are lost through extended downtime and loss of production or mission-critical information.
