L-com's HyperLink® coaxial lightning arrestor and surge protector products are available in two types, Quarter Wave and Gas Discharge models. Quarter Wave coaxial surge protectors are designed to pass the desired frequency while suppressing lightning surges, much like a signal filter. Lightning strike electrical surges which operate at low frequencies are diverted through the protector's short-circuit to the ground. Gas Discharge coaxial protectors are a type of lightning arrestor which employs a replaceable gas discharge tube, which is a component containing a small amount of gas. The gas tube dumps extremely high amounts of surge energy directly to the ground of the protector. HyperLink® coaxial lightning arrestors are available for 0-3 GHz operation or 0-6 GHz operation.
Data Line Lightning and Surge Protectors
The use of surge protectors to protect sensitive equipment from lightning strikes and surges on Ethernet data lines has become more important than ever with the advent of faster standards like 100 and 1000 Base-T Ethernet. The faster data speeds have required equipment manufacturers to use fragile high speed components. Designed for Cat 5, Cat 5e and Cat 6 applications, L-com's HyperLink® brand data line protectors are available in different power levels. From low power models for typical hub or client installations to high-power, 3-stage protectors designed for maximum surge protection. In addition to our data line protectors, we offer protectors for Telephone, DSL, T1, RS422/485, RS232, 4-20 mA Current Loop, AC/DC and Video applications.
