L-com, Inc., a designer and manufacturer of wired and wireless connectivity products, recently announced its launch of two new models of ELP Series Cat5 lightning and surge protectors.
Meant for use with 10/100 Base-T Ethernet networks, this series protects valuable equipment from lightning, static discharge, and faulty wiring. These Cat5 protectors easily connect in-line with existing data connections and feature rugged aluminum housings for maximum durability.
“When considering the high cost of replacing damaged equipment and the resulting lost productivity, the cost of an in-line suppressor is really quite small,” says Ken Burgner, Product Manager.
The ELP-CAT5 model is designed to easily connect almost anywhere. A small Cat5 jumper cable is included so no additional cables are needed when used with existing data lines. The ELPD-CAT5 model is specifically designed for DIN applications, and can mount to standard DIN 3 rails with a mounting clip located on the rear of the unit. A Cat5 jumper cable is also included with this model. For multiple DIN protector installations, 3, 5, and 10 position busbars are available to combine all the protector grounds together.
Additional features of both the ELP-CAT5 and ELPD-CAT5 models include:
- Inline style connection for fast and easy installation
- Rugged aluminum construction
- Good discharge capacity, low voltage protection
- Quick response, high transmission rate, low signal attenuation
