The LPXTRJ45-100TX 10/100BT surge suppressor is a high-speed, high-current, solid-state device designed to protect equipment from transient over-voltages on high-speed data lines with RJ-45 connectors using pins 1-8. It performs this function by limiting the magnitude of transient over-voltages that are present on each pair relative to each other and relative to ground. Continuous bi-polar, bi-directional, non-interrupting protection is provided. The LPXTRJ45-100TX 10/100BT utilizes silicon junction avalanche suppressor diodes as its sole suppression technology and automatically resets after each suppression function with no degradation of protection capabilities. It attaches in series with the load to be protected. It also includes a ground stud that must be connected to the system ground. Note: Trim Ground lead to shortest length possible for optimum suppression.
