Expanded high-speed surge protection with protector rated for outdoors

29-03-2023 | Transtector | Passives

Transtector Systems now offers a new outdoor, 10GbE, PoE++ data surge protector. The new industrial surge protector is created for use with 10 Gigabit Ethernet and PoE++ networks, telecom base stations, point-to-point links, WISP/ISP, IT and data centres, control lines and sense loops, and other applications. It meets IEEE 802.3 standards for 10GbE and IEEE 802.3bt standards for PoE++.

The data surge protector employs SASD technology to protect critical equipment in Gigabit Ethernet/PoE++ protocol data networks while staying transparent to data throughput. It guards against electrical transient surges from lightning strikes and internal switching events. The commercial device supports long-term system reliability by absorbing heightened transient energy while keeping a low clamping voltage.

The new surge protector fixes to a pole or a wall and has several features to shield it from the elements. It has a dielectric lube to weatherise the shielded RJ-45 connections, a patented weatherised wiring grommet, a conformal coating on the PCB assembly to shield the PCBA from moisture and corrosion and configurable weep holes. NEMA 3R and IP65 environmental protection ratings make it ideal for indoor and outdoor use.

The data surge protector has a maximum data rate of 10,000Mb/s and handles up to 100W of PoE power. It is compatible with Cat6/6A STP and Cat7 STP cables.

“We have expanded our high-speed surge protection line with a model that can guard equipment and peripherals using the highest available data rate and PoE power levels in outdoor conditions, which are much more extreme. It utilises our patented enclosure for user-friendly installation and provides the highest performance surge protection technology that Transtector products are known for,” said Transtector product line manager Dan Rebeck.
